Hello Everyone! I know i have shared this on my Instagram account weeks ago. But i guess it wouldn’t hurt if i share these as one of my blogpost too! haha.. So today, i’m gonna share with you on what to eat in Perth!
Apparently this quiet town have a lot good food to offer. My friend said the trend has been changing quite tremendously. Ten years ago, most people will dine in their own house for dinner and most shops are already closed by 5pm. But today, you have vast varieties of food to choose from from breakfast to supper.
Too bad we only have 3,5 days to spent in this capital of Western Australia. So, here’s are my list to eat when you are in Perth!
1. CIAO ITALIA
This Italian Restaurant has been famous since i dont know when. All my Perth Friends has this Ciao Italia at their top list when it comes to what to eat in Perth. Since they talked about it many times, so we made Ciao Italia as our first stop in Perth.
Ciao Italia has their flagship restaurant at South Perth area that does not accept reservations, but bookings could be made at the newer location in Nedlands. More over the one at South Perth is a little inconvenient if you’re bringing babies. Since my friend brought baby along with the stroller, they said it is more convenient to go to Ciao Italia in Nedlands instead. So we as tourist just follow the locals lead.
And it is indeed the best Italian i’ve had (outside the one in Italia itself of course). As i mentioned on my IG story, everything is literally nice over here.. and everything are meant to be shared, at least for us Asian. haha..
Take Ciao Italia Fettucine for example. It is super nice and huge and so creamy. I myself cant finished this alone. I love the al dente texture, not soft yet not so hard. it is just perfect. Ciao Italia Fettucine has the combination of marinated tender chicken strips, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and spring onions, fresh diced tomatoes in a creamy white sauce.
Another two that we ordered as our main dish were wood fired Porcini Pizza and Calamari ala Griglia. Goshhh, im not sure if i were too hungry or everything is just nice here. Ciao Italia Porcini Pizza has generous ammount of prosciutto (Italian dry cured ham), porcini mushroom and a large ammount of mozarella and ricotta cheese.. Ahh, major love for this thin pizza.
The Calamari ala Griglia doesn’t smell fishy as well, which mean they are using fresh seafood. Well, i am quite sensitive towards seafood and had allergies before. But this one feels so fresh and tender. They only grilled it lightly and tossed some lemon juice on top with fresh salad at the side.. *kurang cabe botol aja sih kata aku. ahhaha.. so indo yahh..
And below, as stated! Hands down the best Tiramisu ever! I’ve tried many tiramisu, the one at Da Paolo Singapore that everyone is talking about as well. but this one is super good! Now i know why Ciao Italia is on everyone’s list! You really need to head to Ciao Italia when you’re in Perth! ❤
Address: 39/88 Broadway, Nedlands (Corner of Caporn Street)

2. KAILI’S FISH MARKET (FREEMANTLE)
Who’s up for fish and chips by the bay?? Some review said Kaili’s is better, some said Cicerello’s is nicer. Since google review for Kaili’s is higher, we decided to go there. *anak review emang. haha.. It turns out to be a good meal experience for me. All the fried ones definitely a good one. More over when you dip it to their tar tar sauce.
Apparently their mussels are nice too! I’m surprised i can eat mussels. haha.. Cause i had bad experience with mussels and oysters and clams. so i’ve been very picky. But since it’s Freemantle, i guess i have to try, at least one.. and it turns out to be a good one, and i had more than 3 mussels. haha..
Kailis’s Fish Market
Address : 46 Mews Rd, Fremantle WA 6160, Australia

3. Viet Hoa
If you’re looking for something soupy in the middle of rainy Perth. I would like to recommend this humble Vietnamese restaurant. They served a good bowl of Phe (Vietnamese noodle) and tasty tender pork chop. Quite feels like a homemade meal with their homey taste.
I guess all food in Australia is served in a generous ammount. So, if you cant eat much like me. It is better to order one first, then decide whether or not to order another portion.
Address: 1/349 William St, Northbridge WA 6003, Australia
Opening Hours : 10am – 10pm
4. Good Fortune Roast Duck House
I am not a big fan of duck. But this one Chinese restaurant is quite popular amongst Asian in Perth. So we decided to give it a try.
We ordered a plate of roast duck, roast pork and BBQ pork along with stir fry long bean and spicy salt and pepper pork ribs.
All are good for me. The least tasty was the duck, since im not a duck person. But me and my friends love their roast pork. Crunchy and tender at the same time. And ohh the fats! Hahaha love the fats. Another homey meal when you are craving for Asian food. As for me, the best Asian food is still Angke Restaurant in Jakarta and Taste Paradise in Singapore.
Good Fortune Roast Duck House
Address: 354 William St, Perth WA 6000, Australia
Opening Hours : 10 AM – 10 PM
5. Chocolateria San Churro
I’m always up for churro! Maybe because it’s hard to find a good churros, so im down to try any Churros anywhere.
And apparently this lovely Perth has a wonderful Churros place. It is a little pricy for this one plate of Churros and dips though. But yeah, i guess once in a while won’t hurt. Moreover most meal in Australia is considered pricy.
Their have four dips for us to choose. Golden dips, dark chocolate dips, milk chocolate dips and strawberry dips. Apparently the golden dips has a strong caramel taste. Some love it, but some still prefer the dark chocolate better. The milk chocolate dips is everyone’s favorite, and strawberry dips is the least favorite, eventho I thought it’s not bad. Haha
Well, it’s a must visit when you’re in Perth. It’s a chain dessert place, so you can find it in many place. But we went the one at … cause it’s just right in one lane with Good Fortune Roast Duck restaurant.

6. V Burger
If you love trying out gourmet burgers. V burger is a must try in Perth. They have a wide range of burgers, from the classic ones to unique ones.
We tried three burgers and a lot of side dishes. If you’re a chicken person, you have to try their Chicken Kamikaze. It’s like the gourmet version of McD McSpicy burger. They add soy mirin glaze, fried onion, lettuce, tomato, house aioli & wasabi mayo for the sauce
We love their Madame Truffle. Tender Beef Patty, Grilled Onion, tasty Truffle Aioli, Triple Cheeses and Grilled Mushrooms with extra Bacon! The truffle aioli is the bomb! If you love truffle, this is the perfect burger for you.
Tried out their Sir Bacon too. Which consist of Grilled beef patty, bacon, tomato, lettuce, pickles, onion, cheese, mustard & house burger sauce. For me, it’s a normal beef burger tho. The other 2 is more delicious for me.. hehe
Dont forget to try out their Halloumi bites! I love this fried cheese bites too. Haha. As for other side dishes. It’s normal good for me. But worth the try
