Heading along to feast at Taste of Perth this weekend? Here’s what not to miss.
It’s the weekend all culinary lovers have been waiting for – it’s time to whet your appetite at Taste of Perth.
Yesterday our ZSA ZSA team went to the three-day foodie event to delve into the festival’s 50 different dishes and check out the trendsetters bringing culinary flair to Perth’s dining scene.
Let’s face it, if you’re anything like us the 14-restaurant-strong menu looks a little overwhelming and you’ve got a long list of dishes you want to try. So we’ve loosened our belts and sampled the menu to narrow the list down to give you our top FIVE dishes you must not miss at Taste of Perth this weekend:
1. Nobu’s Wagyu carpaccio: Known across the globe for its innovative new style Japanese cuisine, Nobu was one stall we did not want to miss. Their signature dish of Wagyu carpaccio with quail egg, aji amarillo aioli and soy-salt is the perfect balance of salty and creamy and is our favourite dish. Cost: $32
2. Print Hall Dining Room’s risotto: This inner city venue has always been one of our favourites. Their dish of potato and stinging nettle risotto with goat’s curd, fermented tofu and gai larn is a must-try. Hell yes for seconds! Cost: $10
3. el Publico’s lamb ribs: When it comes to the flavours of Mexican street food, no one does it quite like Highgate’s el Publico. Their twice-cooked lamb ribs dish is hearty and melts in the mouth, while the cucumber and mint salad on the side adds a burst of fresh flavour. Cost: $12
4. Lalla Rookh’s fried custard: This inner CBD eating house is always on our must list, but when we saw their fried custard with candied citrus and toasted almonds on the menu we immediately wished for dessert. Two words: Fried. Custard. Cost: $6
5. Bib & Tucker’s rotisserie suckling pig slider: Festivalgoers can discover a tantalising menu at Bib & Tucker’s stall. We opted for the rotisserie suckling pig slider with kimchi slaw and kewpie and it did not disappoint. Great for those who love to delve into a good burger. Cost: $8
