The home cooked food here will transport you to the Philippines with just one bite. It’s proper Filipino fare – nothing fancy, just fresh food full of flavour. Try their signature sisig of sautéed pork with liver in a blend of spicy and peppery taste served in a sizzling plate with lemon. Local fans say it reminds them of restaurants in Manila, and we agree.
Ready Eddie’s Cafe is family owned and operated, and you can tell it’s the real deal with the many family recipes on the menu.
Picking just one dish here is impossible, so we suggest you come with friends and order as many as you can fit on the table. Highlights include the succulent bulalo, a stew of slow cooked beef bone marrow coupled with potatoes, cabbage and corn on the cob that will satisfy your cravings.
If you’re missing those Pinoy flavours, Mr YummmO will come through with a huge spread of all your favourite dishes. They have an eat-in restaurant and a catering service that’s perfect for family gatherings. With dishes such as crispy pata, tapsilog and fried tilapia, it’s too good to pass up.

Sandok Kawali serves up some of (if not the best) dessert in Perth.

Smokey, grilled meats and BYOB? It’s no wonder Parilla Barbecue and Grill is such a local favourite for simple food done perfectly.
