We very often pop into Market Grounds for a drink or fast meal – in Kings Square it’s a substantial venue and highly regarded – particularly if one thing is occurring on the nearby Perth Arena. The wine listing is fairly good – I can all the time discover one thing that draws and the meals is pub type however carried out nicely.
Three of us stopped in for an early feed earlier than happening to a live performance and with a glass or two of rosé in hand we ordered three dishes from the bar menu between us.
First off, a hen burger, buns crammed with tender chook and avocado – fries and tomato dipping sauce. Good wanting and satisfying dish.
The ubiquitous Chicken Parmi was subsequent – tender hen breast, sloshed with wealthy tomato sugo, mozzarella, served with chips – once more a considerable and well-cooked dish.
The last dish – fried prawns with Kaffir lime crumbs served with wasabi mayo – sadly these had been left too lengthy in the fryer and have been very darkish and the crumbs fairly overcooked – for all that the prawns themselves have been fairly good. Two minutes much less and they might have been high-quality. The delicate wasabi mayo was creamy with a pleasing little zip.
All in all, regardless of the prawns, we loved our go to as soon as once more – it’s properly positioned between the rail station and Arena, nicely designed, fairly good food and drinks, very pleasant and welcoming waiters – definitely value a go to.
