Bivouac, in the heart of Northbridge on William Street offers a variety of Middle Eastern and Meditteranean fare. The food is designed for sharing, including small plates and larger plates.
We started with a mocktail – a citrus based fruity delight with a hint of sourness.
From the small plate section we chose the Israeli duck liver pate with mustard kasundi, pickles and matzah crackers. This was such a beautiful dish, really rich and flavourful. the pickled radishes were incredibly good.
For larger dishes we chose the 9 spice Palestinian Chicken Musakhan, again a wonderful combination of flavours with fennel, toasted buckwheat and smoked garlic yoghurt.
Mint and chilli eggplant was exquisite. Perfectly cooked eggplant with chickpea msabaha, herbed vegan yoghurt, fermented paprika, and crispy shallot.
We also chose a Syrian potato salad with fennel, almond, chilli, lemon and herbs – probably the best potato salad I have eaten.
Bivouac really does deliver a feast of flavours, and it’s nice to try dishes from different regions of the middle east – there really is a shortage of restaurants delivering this type of cuisine in Perth. I really couldn’t fault any dish and I will definitely return for more.
