After an exacting day of champagne tasting at the wonderful Taste Champagne event (blog post coming soon) at the Pan Pacific recently, we were in need of a little food before we caught the train home, so, as it is close to the station and always has something good to eat and drink (not that we really needed the latter), the FWO and I hit Lot 20 – after a quick hello to Jerry Fraser who was busily shucking oysters we ordered a couple of snacks from the bar menu – barramundi croquettes and Dutch fries.
We didn’t have long to wait before the food arrived.
The croquettes were nicely crisped on the outside while the minced barramundi mix inside was moist and full of pleasant fishy flavours – mayo infused with capers came with it – creamy and salty – just right for dipping.
The fries – a perennial favourite – were served in a cone – the chips well cooked – crunchy and hot – slathered in a mix of mayo, mildly spiced satay sauce and chopped red onions – perfect cool weather eating.
Of course we had to have a drink – so 3Drops excellent rosé hit the spot, washed the food down and set us up for the train journey home.
Lot 20 is one of the best of Perth’s small bars and as Spring and Summer approach the courtyard out front will become even more tempting. A top spot.
