Perth’s Culinary Scene Transformed and Rivalling its Competition

Perth’s Culinary Scene Transformed and Rivalling its Competition


Perth’s unrelenting commitment to changing the way their culinary landscape is viewed by other states across Australia is causing waves in the food and wine industry. Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney are in a constant battle for the title of Food and Wine Capital, but they now have a new contender to be wary of!

The influx of talented business owners and chefs alike have flocked to Perth in recent years to snap up the opportunity to be a part of the city’s growth in the culinary space. Since the early 90’s the dining scene in Perth has shifted to one that allows people to explore different tastes and experiences.

Perth’s Hats!

The Australian Good Food Guide created their own set of standards in 1977, following in the footsteps of the world-renowned Michelin guidelines. With this came the coveted Australian culinary awards system, known as the Chef Hat awards. These are awarded to those establishments which score highest in the following categories: ingredients, taste, presentation, technique, value and consistency.

Here are a few hatted restaurants Perth Hub residents can enjoy; 

Balthazar – 6 The Esplanade, Perth, WA 6000

Balthazar is based at the bottom of an Art Deco apartment block, the ‘Lawson’ and gives diners an intimate experience that is thoughtfully paired with an expertly curated wine list. Their dishes focus on local produce and are crafted to perfection. 

Wildflower – 1 Cathedral Avenue, Perth, WA 6000

Wildflower is a restaurant that encapsulates Western Australia’s history. Inspired by the indigenous six-season calendar, their menu pays homage to the vibrant native ingredients. This restaurant is something that Perth residents can be proud of, a celebration of their heritage as a state. 

Co-op Dining – 2/11 Regal Pl, Perth WA 6004

Co-op Dining has developed a 5-10 course degustation menu that allows their diners to experience the best of local produce. Co-op Dining’s food emphasises sustainably sourced ingredients from passionate WA farmers.

Long Chim – State buildings, Barrack St &, St Georges Terrace, Perth WA 6000

The restaurant prides itself on its authenticity and doesn’t pander to the westernisation of Thai food, keeping its flavours bold and fresh. Long Chim represents the growth of Perth’s culinary landscape, showcasing that Perth is a frontrunner of the Australian culinary world. 

Those who call Perth home are the lucky ones who can sit back and watch their city transform into a sea of choice for fine dining and experiences!
