Today we spent our morning sampling wines at the Food and Wine Expo at the Perth Convention Centre. Now although the wines were to die for, unfortunately I cannot say the same about the food. To be completely honest, a lot of it was deep fried/ fast food which didn’t interest me at all. And although today was my cheat day- I didn’t want to waste it on something I wasn’t excited about.
So the American and I stuck our head out the Convention Centre hoping to find something close by and were far too excited to find the Metro Bar right across the road. Although there was no one else in sight, we took our chances as the bar man was friendly and the menu was enticing (and the kitchen was open!) With only two types of rose on the wine list I asked for the “dry” option, but the barman was more than generous in letting me try each before placing my order. I ordered myself a glass of Rose and an Aperol Spritz for the American before we took the menu and sat outside on a relaxed lounge in the sunshine. After looking through the fairly extensive menu, we opted to share the Mushroom Arancini Balls and the Roasted Pumpkin, Goats Cheese & Rocket Pizza.
The meals were delivered to our table quickly which was expected due to the lack of people about, but the service and friendly staff made the atmosphere and our experience so enjoyable. Oh and the food was divine- plentiful and flavoursome…not what I expected for a “pub feed”.
