Marco Pierre White raves about this chic beach front restaurant and you can dip your toes in the Indian Ocean before dinner.
Bib & Tucker is a pleasant 40 minute train ride from Perth, still relatively new and has an eclectic collection of interesting customers. It is difficult to get bookings and we ended up eating 'dinner' at 5:30pm. Despite it being the first sitting for dinner, the front desk was disorganised and we had to wait. However, we were taken to a table with a stunning view of the ocean.
We had a young, friendly and cheerful waitress and started with 'packaged cocktails'. Bermudians would have struggled to recognise my 'Frozen Dark & Stormy' (rum & ginger beer) with green apple pearls. It had the consistency of Taiwanese Bubble Tea and an 'other worldly' quality.
We picked the salt cod fritters and charcoal grilled chorizos to share as an appetiser. The salt cod fritters came with Lemon aioli and were softer than I expected but mouthwatering and the chorizo were good too.
For main courses I wanted to try kangaroo for the first time and my friend loves Gorgonzola and pear pizza.
The blue cheese pizza had a delicious 'bite' and was heaven with the pear, walnuts, rocket and shallots. The kangaroo had a rich gamey venison like taste and really benefited from the yogurt accompaniment.
We ended the meal sharing a Banoffee Bombe Alaska with toasted meringue, banana & toffee ice cream and a biscuit base. It was a perfect sweet way to end a fun dinner.
🐻🐻🐻🐻🐻(5 out of 5 'teddies') - interesting flavours, new foods, a stunning location and a great place to people watch. Definitely worth the journey from Perth. Bring a pashmina if you are sitting outside in November!
