While in Perth, we had the chance to catch up with two good friends and even meet their new adorable puppy. They even spoilt us with a meal at Harvest Espresso, Victoria Park, a café with a strong focus on food. Their menu changes with the season, so we were lucky enough the catch the last days of the autumn menu.
My dish was roasted cauliflower with almond nasturtiums crumble, whipped goats cheese cream, slow-cooked eggs and crispy kataifi (shredded fillo pastry). It was one of the most unique yet delicious combinations that I have come across in my humble brunching experience. I haven't had any form of goats cheese since I was put off it a few years ago, but this was such a light version of it while still retaining its essence. As even the different flavours weren't interesting enough, the dish was also amped up by its different textures, from crunchy, to silky, to creamy.
Hubby ordered the waffles with jasmine cream, bergamot gel, maple syrup, bananas and strawberries. It looked so good!
My friends ordered the grilled squid and smoked cod, two options that I had also been considering. I had a mouthful of each, and they were delicious.
Apparently, this café is also famous for their matcha latte. The taste of the green tea was so powerful! I love it when people don't skimp on green tea powder.
We felt very lucky to have been able to brunch at this lovely café. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table inside, but it was more than worth it. I'm definitely coming back whenever I get to Perth again (which hopefully will be sometime soon!).
