Gusto Food, South Perth

Gusto Food!Gusto Food is located on Angelo Street in South Perth where a few nice cafes (Secret Garden, Halo Espresso, Globe etc) congregate. I first heard of this place when a friend posted up some amazing looking breakfast dishes on her facebook page. “You must go try it”, she said – OK, off I went one Saturday morning with my sister.

It was early and the place was already jam packed! We waited 10 minutes or so for a table which was quite quick. I had a hard time choosing what to order as there were so many dishes I wanted to try! Just a note that order is placed and paid upfront at the counter.

For drinks, we had:

  • Affogato ($4.60) – strong and creamy
  • Orange juice ($4) – this was 100% OJ, freshly pressed!

I decided to order the House Made crumpets with pear & berries, peanut gravel and yoghurt ($14.50). I normally do not like to order something sweet for breakfast, well except for the one time at Hardware Societe in Melbourne, but the food there is almost on a different level. Anyways I thought I’ll be different this time….and it was the best choice I made!

The Crumpets were delicious! They were light and they were fluffy, but the most amazing component of this dish is the peanut gravel!  It brought back childhood memories of a Malaysian peanut snack that I loved. The combination of the sweet pear & berries, earthy peanut and sourish yoghurt on the crumpet made it one tastyyy plate! It surpassed the praises I had for the one at Hardware Societe. Go Gusto!

My sister ordered the Potato hot cake with poached eggs, oak smoked salmon, avocado salsa and hollandaise sauce ($19.50). This dish was amazing to look at. It was packed, with two poached eggs, a layer of smoked salmon on top of a bed of salad and potato cake. I had a taste and the avocado salsa on the side stood out the most for me – very generous dish!

Service was good with friendly smiles and attentive staff even though they were so busy. This has now become one of my favourite place for breakfast – I still need to check out the Cinnamon French Toast with the bacon, the banana, maple berry compote and honeycomb! That looked amazing!
