Joining us was my good friend the Western Australian Regional Bailli of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Wayne Teo and Lynton's IT guru.
I'd heard of this new little restaurant in a quiet street in (northern) West Perth going by the seemingly innocuous name of West End Deli, so we booked a table there.
The brunch menu was short and sweet, but packed full of amazing delights. Being unable to decide on what to get, we decided to order a bunch of main dishes to share. Everything from spiced lamb ribs, pillow-soft gnocchi, and even the simple-sounding cauliflower was unbelievably delicious and hearty.
I have to admit that I was having so much fun trying the huge amount of wines and feeding my face that I didn't take many notes.
The dessert we shared was topped with pop rocks candy which provided a beautifully contrasting experience of textures - the smooth creamy thingamajig (sorry I forgot what it was) punctuated by the snap crackle pop of the pop rocks in your mouth.
A truly fantastic electic lunch accompanied by just as enjoyable eclectic conversation, ranging from wines, food, global politics, business and even IT.
The West End Deli also transforms into a fine dining establishment for dinner. I must certainly head back there to see what that's like!
