The Mint Asian Cafe, CBD

The Mint is a canteen style Asian cafe on Hay next to Perth Mint on the corner of Hill Street. On a rainy day I was given a lovely welcome and I perused the menu for something warming.

Tempted by pretty much all of the options – laksa, fried rice, gyoza, salt and pepper prawn etc. I eventually settled for a fried chicken kway teow.

It was really nicely cooked with the charred wok flavour running through, and a perfect mix of chicken, onion, egg, beansprouts and greens. I loved it and was quite happy with the $11 lunch price tag.

This won’t be my last visit to Mint, it’s another Hay Street winner.

Near Perth Mint, Duo Tone is one of a group of small cafes, and this is the one that seems to draw the crowds. I popped in the other day for coffee and a snack to see what the fuss is about.

Everything in the cabinets looks nice and the cafe oozes care and consideration. Pastries, rolls, sandwiches – all look great.

I chose a coffee and a raspberry and coconut loaf. The coffee (soy cappuccino) was lovely, rich, but not too bold, and smooth. They certainly know their coffee.

The raspberry loaf was delicious, maybe a little sweet, but it definitely tasted good, and the staff serving were lovely.

Based on this visit, I will definitely come back to try more of the goodies on offer.

 

Tea Woks, Perth CBD

Tea Woks is another little casual cafe on Hay, and this one sells Malaysian food. They also serve great value bubble tea. The menu has a tempting list of Malay favourites, noodles, chicken wings, bak kut teh etc.

On this occasion I chose Hainanese chicken rice. The chicken was lovely – melt in the mouth, and had been cooked really well, The rice had the wonderful chicken flavour, and the chilli sauce was a great accompaniment. The soup was a little weak though and could have been better.

This is definitely a popular cafe, especially with workers and locals. I’ll be back to try the noodles!

Here are some pictures from my second visit. I had combination rice which was yummy.

People’s Inn Dumpling House, Perth CBD

Peoples Inn Dumpling House Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

People’s Inn is at the East end of Hay Street, and serves a variety of traditional dumplings and soups. All dumplings are hand made, you can see them being made as you walk in. It’s a casual cafe, where you order first and then sit down.

This is a fairly short post because I tried the fried cabbage and pork dumplings for my lunch one day.

The steamed dumplings look really tempting, but they come in a portion size of 12, which is a bit much for me for lunch, so I chose the fried ones.

They were really delicious, the table had a good supply of soy, red vinegar and chilli sauce to accompany them.

This cafe also serves pies like pork and leek pie – and the soups being served to other tables looked really generous. I must return so that I can update this post with more pictures and thoughts.
