Inglewood Night Markets

Loads of people get Monday-itis… Poor Monday is the most unloved day of the week. Personally, I love Mondays, and not just because one of my most favourite binge-worthy shows (Outlander) is on telly. You can make Mondays a no-cook zone in your house and head out to the food-tastic Inglewood on Beaufort Night Market. This food truck extravaganza is held each and every Monday evening from 6pm in the warmer months.

Both sides of Beaufort Street between Sixth Avenue and Dundas Road are lined with a mix of food trucks and hawker food stalls, with a couple of craft and fresh produce stalls too.

We started our foodie trail at the city end, near Mondos Butchers and walked up one side of the street then down the other side on the way back. It’s a nice stroll and there’s lots of live music along the way adding to the vibrant atmosphere.

There’s a huge choice of cuisines from all around the world… This fresh paella looked and smelled amazing.

And what a mouth-watering  mountain of meat at El Argentino!

The grassed Town Square area is a really popular spot with families to throw down a picnic rug. The kids will love having a dance to the live music.

We’ve been a few times in the last month, here’s out pick of what we’ve tried (so far!):

 

Delicious Columbian empanadas from Marcelita’s – the pulled pork and lime (3 for $11) is my favourite filling and best of all their tasty morsels are gluten free.

Little Chef chose a woodfired pizza ($15) from Fire Truck Pizza. This is by Chef Lorenzo, who’s Ellenbrook Woodfire Italian Restaurant is a huge favourite with us. Lorenzo has decked out an old fire truck with a pizza oven and flashing lights in the Italian colours – of course. Continue reading

Inglewood on Beaufort – Monday Night Markets

IMG_1800Everybody gets Monday-itis… Poor Monday is the most unloved day of the week – from which Friday just seems so far away! I’ve discovered a reason to LOVE Mondays in Perth! Inglewood on Beaufort is a night market that’s held each and every Monday night from 6pm – August till March.IMG_1823

Both sides of Beaufort Street between Sixth Avenue and Dundas Road are lined with a mix of food trucks and hawker food stalls, with a couple of craft and fresh produce stalls too.IMG_1805

We started our foodie trail at the city end, near Mondos Butchers and walked up one side of the street then down the other side on the way back. It’s a nice stroll, not a great distance for little people and there’s lots of live music along the way adding to the atmosphere.

Admittedly, I did have my food blinkers on a little as I was on a mission to find hummus. I’ve met the lovely people behind the Hummus Club at a few foodie events. I’ve had scrumptious little samples of their food and been desperado to try a proper sized portion for a long time!IMG_1799

It was totally worth the wait. I savoured the Club Mix – which is a  mix of all their favourites- a generous serve of hummus, fluffy falafels, a middle eastern salad with a pomegranate dressing and fresh pita. I had a little chili sauce on the side too which gave a spicy kick. The delish dinner was washed down with their refreshing pomegranate lemonade. Find the Hummus Club at their Trinity Arcade pop up in the CBD and Friday Hawkers market in the city too.

Little Chef chose a woodfired pizza ($15) from Porta Pizza. Just like Daddy, he chose his favourite topping Meatlovers, fresh leg ham, Italian sausage and bacon.IMG_1802

There’s a huge choice of cuisines from all around the world…

This fresh seafood paella from KQ Spanish food looked amazing!IMG_1810

And what a mouth-watering  mountain of meat at El Argentino!IMG_1806

You’ll also find:

  • Soup from Suppa Club
  • Columbian empanadas from Marcelita’s
  • Dutch pancakes from Café Oranjeaus
  • Gourmet toasted sandwiches from Grilled To The Mac
  • Arabic Rice and more from Meast (Middle Eastern Street Food)
  • Freshly baked bread from New Nocia Bakery
  • Indian treats from Bollygood Foods
  • Bratwaurst from Antons
  • Meat, meat and more meat by EL Argentino
  • Chilean delights by La Fuente
  • Coffee from Coastal Coffee
  • Chilli Dawgs and more at Smokin BBQ Bus
  • Handmade marshmallow from Mashmalloz
  • Asian eats by Bangkok Jump Street
  • Moroccan Food by Shak Shuk

I’ve hardly even scratched the surface. There is SO MUCH more food too! Wether you have a savoury appetite…IMG_1828

or sweet tooth there’s something to suit everyone’s taste.IMG_1809

Heading back to the car, Little Chef bought a choc mint ice cream from Wicked Waffles and Ice Cream with his pocket money. It was a hot summers night so he had to eat it very quickly!IMG_1825

I was really impressed with the Inglewood on Beaufort Night Markets. You could go every Monday and eat from a different vendor every time. I think making Monday a cooking free zone sounds like a very good idea to Chef and I!IMG_1813

Miss Kitty’s Saloon – Inglewood

Miss Kitty's Saloon on Urbanspoon

I had been itching to visit this eclectic Beaufort Street venue for a few months. I’d been hearing the buzz around town about Miss Kitty’s and it definitely lived up to the hype. I’d shown Chef the online menu, and he was a bit hesitant. For him and his “Modern Australian” approach to food, it looked very left of centre. But this is what I love about the evolving Perth dining scene at the moment. It’s increasingly hard to put places like this into a pigeon hole – and I love that!!

image

The decor in Miss Kitty’s is a quirky, fun mash-up of a Wild West Saloon; with a bit of op shop chic and some butchers shop props thrown in for good measure. The menu reflects that perfectly, with a rustic American/Canadian feel. We were seated at a long table, looking directly into the kitchen. We were very close to the action. Chef was watching it all unfold very closely; he would comment on expensive brand of knives one of the Chefs was using and the speed at which they were working! He must have thought he was at work!!  Below, was our view, I felt like we were IN the kitchen!!

The service was excellent. We were told that the menu was mainly designed for sharing. It was also Tuesday, which meant their “Beer n Dog” special was on. Chef was onto that faster than a Bunning’s sausage sizzle! The spicy hot dog & beer also came with toasted tortilla chips and home-made guacamole. Great value for $16.80. I had the Miss Kitty’s take on Prawn Cocktail ($21). I thought the pork nuggets were absolutely more-ish, so juicy and delish! The red apple, lettuce, thousand island dressing were so fresh – I loved it.

We shared the Poutine ($12). This is a traditional French-Canadian dish. Fries are covered in chunks of cheese curds & lashings of gravy. You can add Foie Gras ($4), if you’re feeling a bit decadent. We really enjoyed this version of chips n gravy!

image

The Hot wing pancake ($4 each) started off great, we loved the topping of pickled carrot and blue cheese. There was a massive chilli kick to the ranch sauce on the chicken. It was a bit hot for me, but Chef thought it was relaly tasty – it went well with his beer!

image

We loved our desserts. Chef had the Pecan Butter Tart ($9) with maple sauce ice cream. He thought it was scrumptious, just wished that tart was a bit bigger! My Banoffee Pie ($9) was served in a jar; it was several layers of loveliness, a real treat.

Miss Kitty’s is also open for Brunch; I really liked the look of their brunch menu. Whether it’s for brunch or dinner – we’ll be back! We loved the Eccentric Miss Kitty’s. From the pigs heads in the bar fridge, to the wooden pallets adorning the walls, round white leather sofa and the honky tonk country music soundtrack – you’ll be in for a fun ride.
