A Sunday lunch at The Beaufort Street Merchant

I was completely amazed at how packed The Beaufort Street Merchant was on a Sunday! Luckily we booked online. They also have plans to expand the space into Raah’s old space according to the sign we saw, we could barely get to our table around 1pm.

I absolutely loved The Beaufort Merchant setting…the scattered apples, wooden boards as our plates, dim lighting and plenty of wine on display / for purchase.

My friend Mia did wonder if they collected all the apples to make an apple pie once a month :) I am now curious to know!

burger boy loves a good beer. I on the other hand, have been in love with Tomfoolery wine since trying it for the first time at Amani Bar in Leederville so that’s all I was drinking at The Beaufort Street Merchant that lunch :)

To start we had some tender pork cheeks and a picnic slab to share…

The cheese had a soft buttery texture that just melted in our mouths.

It seems that our afternoon was filled with cheeks. For mains I had the special beef cheek pie – the house made puff pastry complimented the super tender beef cheeks. I wasn’t a fan of the hazelnut and chicken pea puree and I would have preferred a combination of roasted veggies rather than just onion but that’s just my personal preference.

burger boy had the pull pork burger special , he enjoyed it but I thought it could have been easily replicated at half the price from a BBQ duck house. The chips however, were out of this world.. they were beautifully golden and crisp.

Liam had the lamb shanks which looked amazing and from what I heard tasted great…

For dessert I had sticky date pudding and a serve of ice cream…

My friend Mia and her hubbie Liam had the passionfruit cupcake, which was light and tasty…

burger boy who is a self-confessed chocoholic had the chocolate cupcake….

Of course dessert isn’t complete without coffee. This is my creamy latte…

Lunch was $280 between the four of us including beer and wine, which is a pricey Sunday lunch but the quality and service was worth it. Probably not your weekly lunch option though.

We were astonished by how packed The Beaufort Street Merchant was because it wasn’t a cheap lunch option and the rest of the Beaufort St Strip was fairly quiet in comparison.

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.

    I am also a fan of the Merchant. They have lots of GF options and their coffee is damn good. Agreed it isn’t the cheapest joint on Beaufort but definitely worth it

    Gosh – Any restaurant that serves Sierra Nevada Pale deserves some some extra attention. The photos and presentation of the dishes in general is truly fantastic (Wow – the chips!)… Thanks for the review I cannot wait to go!
