A few shop fronts alongside Railway Parade, reverse West Leederville station, have been gutted and re-jigged to type a powerful and alluring area – bottle shop, bar, restaurant – polished concrete, uncovered bricks, hovering metallic ceilings and glass, all combining to make for what must be a vacation spot eating and consuming spot in what’s quick turning into a foodie and wine and beer lover’s haven – West Leederville.
One aspect of Besk makes up the bottle shop, housing an exquisite array of wines and beers, with an emphasis on boutique and native merchandise -as you’d anticipate with one of many house owners being Elliott Moore of Mane Liquor.

The meals is basic pub fashion – fish and chips, scorching canine, steak, in addition to different dishes with a little bit of a twist, and concentrates on seasonal produce – on the day we dropped in we have been tempted by the hummus plate, a carrot dish, and saganaki with prawns – in addition to a bottle of fabulous crisp, dry rosé, a mixture of Merlot and Semillon, all raspberries and cranberries on the palate; good spring and summer time consuming.
The hummus got here with crisped chick peas, flat bread and olives, a splash of oil and sprint of paprika – lemony and garlicky, smoky and the accompanying olives and chick peas offered flavour distinction and texture.
My dish of the day was the carrots – should be a number of the best carrots I’ve had – a mixture of entire child in addition to sliced carrots, they have been served with chopped dates, parsley and date sauce – an outstanding dish, crisp carrots, candy dates, it was a knockout.
And the ultimate selection – a wedge of grilled cheese, oozy and creamy, topped with crunchy prawns, and juiced up with a mildly spiced sugo – lovely.
Sitting out within the small open terrace space, with the mild solar beaming down, sipping on splendid wine (and later a beer from the superb vary on supply) and consuming high-quality meals, properly we have been bought on Besk – and I reckon you may be too.
