The Northbridge Brewing Company, set proper within the coronary heart of Northbridge alongside the Piazza, wanting over the inexperienced grass, is a brewery and pub and a most welcoming joint. Sitting out on the shaded patio is a prime place to eat and drink and watch the world go by.
The menu has been slimmed down a tad since I used to be final there and whereas it’s nonetheless geared in the direction of normal pub meals – fish and chips, burgers, hen parmi, it additionally has some dishes a bit totally different – a Kimchi sandwich sounded interesting, as did the candy potato tacos and this latter dish was our first selection.
A few tacos in a mushy tortilla, roasted candy potato, onion, salsa, coriander and cashew cream, topped with shaved radish – a very nice and satisfying dish.
Popcorn shrimp additionally appealed – deep fried crumbed prawns, got here with ghost chilli aioli – a pleasant zip of chilli however nothing too excessive – I’ve ghost chilli rising at residence and they’re terribly scorching.
And then, an distinctive deal is obtainable – with any drink bought all day, any of the 5 pizzas on the menu – often going for round $20 – is yours for $four. Amazing – so we had to do this out, selecting the mushroom and truffle oil model.
Fluffy base, good little bit of char, and a topping of sentimental, meaty mushrooms, candy caramelized onion and a splash of truffle oil including each bouquet and flavour – nicely turned out pizza and what a discount it’s.
Our drink? A bottle of Malbec from the Frankland River’s Ferngrove vineyard – dusty blackberry aromas, a contact of violets and crushed fennel seed main right into a plump palate of mulberries, plums and milk chocolate. Excellent WA malbec.
Yep, the NBC is definitely a pleasing place for lunch, the meals is sweet, the drinks positive, and the service immediate and filled with smiles. They have held a chilli pageant for the previous few years in June and it’s persevering with this yr – the chilli crab I had final yr was spot on and I might like to get the prospect to attempt it once more.
