Are you tired of eating the same from home sandwiches you always eat? Maybe you’re looking for a new lunch haunt for you and your colleagues or maybe you like expanding your horizons in the one hour lunch period bestowed upon you by management. Or maybe you’re visiting and want to try something out of the ordinary while you’re in the area. Maybe you’re looking for that extra special place to pop the big question, or to make that big announcement to the people closest to you In any case let’s explore some of the more colorful albeit less well known lunch choices that are easy to find in Perth.
Okay, so while it may not be the most nutritious or health conscious lunch option available, it still has to be said with the influx of Italian immigrants to Australia in the 1800’s the avaliablity of quality Italian food, in this case Ice Cream, is easily available throughout WA. Perfect for a casual sit down or a birthday treat.
What’s more quintessentially Australian than a BBQ? Even the most iconic phrase of Australia reflects the passion that Aussies have for all things bright and barbequed (which I will not repeat to avoid the cliché, you know exactly what phrase I’m referring to!). Perth, like a lot of Australian city’s, has a wide selection of grill houses and barbeque joints. If you and your collegues want to go all out and truly satisfy your hunger then this could be a great choice.
British High Tea
Perth, and Australian culture as a whole, has always taken strong influence from its British roots. From the traditional folk music to the constitutional monarchy that helps to guide Australia. It’s hardly surprising that there is a large proportion of British people in Oz and particularly in Perth. As such there are a few different British Tea Parlors such as The Sassy Cookie, one of Perth’s premier locations for the traditional British offering of high tea. Consisting of tea, coffee, sandwiches, scones and a selection of cake, it’s a perfect venue if you were looking for something with a bit more class and a more dignified surrounding.
Bakery’s and Patisseries
With all of the diverse cultures in WA its no surprise that its relatively easy to find the delicious bread, cakes and pastries that are on offer in Perth. From French boulangeries hawking fresh baguettes and croissants to Italian panetteria serving up delicious fresh breads and fruit filled pantone. There is also an emerging trend for more sophisticated and high end baked goods hence the emergence of nu-wave bakery’s offering truly special and unique desserts pies and savory tarts. While significantly more expensive if you were looking for a venue with a little more pizazz and truly memorable food on offer then this kind of boutique bakery (if such a mundane word even applies) may be the choice for you.
