The Standard

Just around the corner from my apartment is one of my favourite places in Perth, The Standard. This bright, leafy sanctuary on Roe Street is one of my favourite places to stop by for an after work drink, a quick bite to eat or a leisurely Sunday lunch. On a sunny day their wine garden is to die for, and the menu is perfectly curated  to never leave you wanting. I know I am getting into gushing territory a little here, but I seriously love this place. 

One of the things on the long list of things I love about The Standard is the fun and accessible descriptions that The Standard has on their wine menu, designed for those who don’t really understand the verbose descriptions you normally find on a label. Like the sound of a chardonnay that tastes like white peach and honeycomb, or a merlot that’s seductive with intense plum and a touch of spice? Or maybe you want a carafe of the garden state – gin, basil, lemon, peach & elderflower liquer and soda? You’re in the right place!

And then there is the food – that’s the number one thing I love. They have such a varied menu, there is something on there to suit every tastebud. I simply cannot visit The Standard without having the fava bites, which are mashed and deep friend cubes of joy served with more-ish aioli and mushroom ketchup. I have a few other favourites on the current menu, including the blue goats cheese on oat cracker with honey and balsamic reduction; and the free range chicken with malaysian spice, and prawn and tamarind sambal. The potato salad with prosciutto was pretty rocking as well. Let’s be honest, everything is good – it’s a good thing the menu is designed to share, so you can go ahead and eat it all.
