Filipino food hasn’t become quite as mainstream as many other cuisines in Perth, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a thriving community with some stellar Pinoy restaurants to delve into. We’ve rounded up 11 of our favourites:
Parilla BBQ & Grill
Tucked away behind a tattoo shop in Kewdale, you’ll be lucky to stumble upon the pint-sized Parilla. Their grilled pork ribs have reached cult status, but their sizzling sisig is also a must-try – that’s if you can look past the crispy fried pork hock.
Cockburn’s Congee House is an Asian fusion restaurant that specialises in Filipino cuisine, serving up its namesake congee in a style that straddles both the Chinese and Filipino arroz caldo. You’ll also find plenty of other Filipino favourites on offer, like adobo, sisig, and kaldereta.
Lola’s Filipino Diner
Started by the team behind beloved burger joint RoyAl’s, Lola’s Filipino Diner pays homage to their Filipino heritage and the food they grew up with. The crowd favourite is, of course, the fried chicken gravy – Lola’s ode to Jollibee’s chicken joy.
Coventry just can’t miss, and yet another heavy-hitter amongst the market is Chef Knowell. Serving up plenty of Filipino faves, all with the Chef Knowell flair – from house-made silog, sizzling sisig, crispy pata and plenty of sweets, including (of course!) refreshing halo-halo, served with homemade ube, buko pandan and langka sorbetes.
Another pint-sized powerhouse, Kusina Republik will sort you out with some big Filipino street food flavours – especially if you’re craving isaw and pork BBQ, grilled over charcoal every Saturday. Plus, you can pop into neighbours Melissa’s Supermarket for some Pinoy groceries and goodies to take home.
Ready Eddie’s Cafe
Hammy Hill’s Ready Eddie’s Cafe will fill the silog-sized hole in your heart. Freshly-made lumpia, pork adobo and grilled pork belly
