The Quarter on Hay, CBD (Perth)

A quick search on Urbanspoon led me to The Quarter on Hay. A cafe-restaurant located in the middle of town – next to the likes of brand-name shops.

For starters, I tried the Bresse Blue and white onion tart, roast pear and rocket salad. Think, white onion quiche and you basically get the idea. According to the waiter, the white onion tart is one of the restaurant’s more popular dishes and I can see why so; The pastry was firm and not too crumbly and the combination of the Bresse Blue (which was on the mild side of things) and the white onions was excellent.

My only grouse – the serving size was far from ideal, considering that each tart cost around A$15? One word – Over-priced.

Side-note: I find The Coffee Club’s quiches quite amazing and much more friendlier on the wallet.

The waiter recommended that I try the Slow cooked pork belly, apple & sage crumble, potato fondant, cider jus. Did I like it? Perhaps – I was rather on-the-fence with this dish.

The decadent pork belly was good, but I did not quite care for the skin. Meant to be crispy (or at least that’s what I would have imagined it to be), it came across as being hard and tough. I had difficulty trying to cut through it.

The apple & sage crumble, on the other hand was absolutely delicious but truth be told, I’m beginning to tire from the usual (and safe) combination of apples and pork.

The Quarter on Hay feels more like a place to go to when you’re around the town rather than making it the highlight of your trip to town. That said, service was impeccable throughout meal service. Reservations are definitely recommended as it got pretty full with the office lunch crowd.

  1. Oh yes! I lived in Australia for about 8 months, and I have to say that the food in Perth is more expensive compared to Melbourne or Sydney. I was in Perth for about 2 weeks earlier this year, and good food certainly doesn’t come cheap in Perth. I didn’t know Coffee Club serves good quiche though 🙂 Thanks for the note:)

    Heh. I hadn’t thought of the Canadian no-dissing-hockey factor, but I see what you mean. Though I thought the point of all the people listening to the game during the Shakespeare performance was that the play in question was so boringly directed?

    You're doing it all wrong. People have been saying the EXACT SAME THING for hundreds of years. You're just not going far enough to get away from the "tourists". Keep trying. Kabini or Bandipur is hardly a "getaway". Traveling in a "tour" is never the right way. Fortunately the Indians almost all travel in tours, so it's relatively easy to avoid them.

    Because I’m a prick I’ve watched a lot of french films, but these have obviously given me a highly advanced insight into the human character. I know I’m a prick, for instance, but I too still don’t have any fudging idea who Clarke is. It’s hard to reconcile his spiky spats e.g. at Edgbaston in 2005, and the concrete-willed post-Bingle Kiwi innings with that absurd mea culpa twitter apology and the ass-muching Punter reverence. Ok the Punter love is just about comprehensible, but that tweet was an act of cringe-inspiring shiteness. Just what the fuck was he hoping to achieve. I like Haddin.
