Look, we know that Chinese food is one of the most regionally diverse, dynamic, manifold cuisines – but just scratching the surface, the tip of the iceberg… these are just a few of our favourites we’re excited to have in Perth.
Good Fortune Roast Duck House
As the name of this stalwart of the Perth Chinese restaurant scene may attest, they know their way around duck. It’s been running the game in Perth for over 20 years now thanks to head honcho Mr. Jin Shou Chen, whose special prep techniques have made his restaurants world-renowned. If it’s duck you’re hunting, Good Fortune should be where you aim.
Bumplings’ Brendan Pang is a master(chef?) of uniting tradition with innovation. The menu is pared-down; getting straight to the nitty-gritty of what we really, really want to eat. Dumplings – served out of a lustrous, repurposed Airstream caravan, of course – include Sichuan chicken and prawn, veg with garlic soy, and crispy pork wontons with chilli mayo and Chinese pickles, with a few rice and noodle dishes for good measure. Kind of Chinese, kind of Mauritian, kind of Perth, 100% amazing.
One of the best spots for Chinese down Freo way, Vivisen have been doing it right for over 10 years now. The casual atmosphere definitely feels right at home given its location, the food is fresh and light, their house made dim sum is beautiful, and if you’re game, you gotta try the twice cooked pork belly with chilli and black bean.
Authentic Bites Dumpling House
Ok, we might be double-dipping, already including Authentic Bites on our best dumplings list (check it HERE), but it really is that good. As the lines out the door will attest, Authentic Bites is a must-visit for Perth dumpling lovers. While you might have to wait..
