Monday, being a public holiday in WA, meant that a long lunch with girlfriends to celebrate birthdays, holidays and just good friendships was in order. Considering we were all coming from different directions, we decided that The Whistling Kite in Secret Harbour was the ideal location to meet. Although I had eaten at the Kite before, quite some time had passed so I was looking forward to checking out the menu!
When we arrived, we were shown to our reserved table outside in the shade of a large tree. Monday was quite warm and the sun had a bite to it so we were happy to be placed in the shade! Our waitress was quick to take our drink orders whilst we waited for the other girls to arrive. I ordered a glass of French Rose, and had the option of a glass (150mL) a “topped up” glass (180mL) or a bottle. I opted for the “topped up” glass…I’m on holidays 🙂
Within no time, our drinks had arrived as well as several jugs of cold water and chilled glasses for us to share as a table. I love it when you don’t have to request water, and better yet it was refrigerated! We took a glance at the menu and within no time at all we had each decided on our meals of choice and conveniently we all chose different items!
I ordered the Chicken breast ($28) which was served with crispy polenta, broccolini and jus. I asked for the jus to be served on the side as I’m not usually a huge fan of sauces and as requested, it was served in a mini mason jar so that I could help myself. I did try a spoonful of it and it was delicious- tasted strongly of garlic and herbs! It was the perfect accompaniment to my glass of rose and beautifully presented on a small pile of mashed sweet potato.
Torey ordered the entree sized Salt & pepper baby squid served with a cajun aioli ($14) and the starter: Leg ham & seeded mustard croquettes, fondue ($12). Than ordered the Halloumi, pumpkin, quinoa, roasted almond & pomegranate salad ($18) and entree sized Pork belly served with sweet potato puree and a ginger glaze ($14).
Sarah went for the Chilli beef pizza topped with guacamole and a corn salsa ($21) whilst Shannon ordered the Grilled salmon served with a salad consisting of cucumber, beans, coriander & rock sugar dressing ($27). Each and every meal that came out was beautifully presented, was generous in portion size, value for money and tasted INCREDIBLE! Can I say that the Kite may potentially be my new favourite “local”!
After lunch, the girls decided that they would indulge in some desserts. Although the menu was inviting with lots to choose from, I was so full from my lunch I couldn’t eat (or drink) another thing for that matter! Tahnee ordered the Churros serve with dark chocolate & raspberry marshmallow sauce. Torey went for the White chocolate cake served with lavender ice cream whilst Sarah indulged in the dark chocolate tort serve with strawberries, caramelised bananas and whipped cream.
Once again, each were beautifully presented and tasted amazing (or so they said!) Everything was perfect about our dining experience, from the service to the location, to the weather, meals and drinks! Thanks for having us- you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be back!
