A group of Perth Food Bloggers and I enjoyed a foodie tour of Subiaco, to rediscover one of Perth’s hubs of great entertainment, dining and drinks. We had an unofficial 4th stop on the tour at Bibik Chan’s Kitchen. The popular Malay eatery, that once resided on Stirling Highway for over 30 years, has relocated to Subiaco and is now found next to The Village Bar.
Our guide, Food Writer Max Veenhuyzen, spied the casual Asian restaurant and excitedly popped in to place a takeaway order. I love his style. We ate the beef and chicken satays in the car park, squatting and standing on the pavement. You can’t get more street than that! The satays were cooked to perfection, the tender meats nicely charred on the barbeque and dripping with peanut sauce.
I’m always on the look out for great satay in Perth, nothing has ever come close to the authentic satay I chowed down on at The Satay Club at Clarke Quay, Singapore many years ago. This unassuming spot in Subi is pretty darn good. What a find. Thanks Max!
Next, we were off to our special sneak peek of hotly anticipated Italian Lulu La Delizia. The small Italian restaurant and wine bar was yet to be open (it opened on the 26.10.16). We were mesmerised by Head Chef Joel Valvasori and one of his talented Chefs Lily Rossen making pasta in the window of Lulu La Delizia, to a soundtrack of old school Italian music. It was wonderful food theatre and watching them roll out the pasta was almost hypnotic. At Lulu La Delizia fresh pasta is the hero of each dish, complimented by their delicious sauces. I’m so excited to try this new spot very soon.
