Pull pork at Devilles Pad

I went to Devilles Pad last night for a friend’s birthday, I had never been there before so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Normally entry is $10 after 8pm but we were there early / on the guest list so we didn’t have to pay. The menu looks like it had a Californian influence as there were a mix of American and Mexican food (menu items we found when we were in Los Angeles last year). I had devilles hot hickory dog ($16) which was pull pork in a bun with a side of coleslaw and fries, the pull pork was close to what we had in America, but the roll was a bit too crunchy for my liking. My bro had the fried chicken with fries ($16), I had a bite and to be frank I think Ingham’s frozen nuggets and McDonalds actually taste better and at a fraction of the cost (although I must admit, I do enjoy McDonald’s nuggets). The portions weren’t huge but being in a cabaret environment, I didn’t really have expectations for the food. I was a bit disappointed when I was keen to try some dessert as the ice-cream sundae was $18 which was more than our meals… I would have been happy to pay $12.

I tried a couple of cocktails ($18 each), there was a water melon one which was crushed watermelon with some liquor, I thought it tasted a bit diluted, think it may have been the quality of the watermelon. I also had the fallen angel which was peach liquor mixed with vodka, peach puree and cream, this tasted ok and had a bit more alcohol in it. I also tried my bro’s cocktails, can’t remember them all but he did have a golden dawn and his cocktails seemed a lot stronger in alcohol than mine. I think the variations of the strength of the cocktails should have really been reflected in the price. The cocktails were ok but I probably wouldn’t go to Devilles specifically for them.

The entertainment was interesting. The first cabaret dancer was impressive but the second act with the Show-Go-Go Girls to me was just two dressed up girls dancing normally, there wasn’t anything spectacular about it.

Overall, it was a fun night and I would probably go back there for the pull pork (it’s the only Perth menu I’ve seen with pull pork – let me know if you know of others!). However, next time I’d stick to the white wine which were decently priced ($7.50) rather than the cocktails.

foodie cravings

I’m a foodie who enjoys trying new food anywhere / any place (restaurants, cafes, bars, market stalls, fast food joints…anywhere just name it!) both in Perth, Western Australia and on my travels. I’m not your ordinary foodie, I’m often described as ‘fussy’ but I really really do love my food - I guess just not everything that’s put on my plate. Though, my other half, ‘burger boy’, eats most foods so I’ll be blogging about what he eats too…and as the name implies, burgers will be a regular foodie blog for all you burger lovers outthere. I love showcasing my yummy food finds with pics so I thought why not share my passion for food with other foodies with my blog, foodie cravings. Follow my food journey as I discover new keepers and rave about my all-time favourites.
