What to Eat in Perth

With its proximity to the wine country of the Swan Valley, it should come as no surprise that Perth is flowing with top-notch Australian wines. Many of Perth's restaurants and wine bars offer a curated selection of the area's vino, but to avoid racking up pricey bar tabs, heed the advice of fellow travelers and buy boxed wine at area groceries. If just a glass (or two) will do, head to neighborhood wine bars like Budburst or Halford.

Perth's dining scene is also heavily influenced by Asian cuisine, and visitors can get a nice sampling at places like the Nao ramen bar and Nhu Loan for bahn mi, not to mention Hot Star Fried Chicken. And with its position alongside the Indian Ocean, Perth is a prime spot for seafood and freshwater fish. Don't miss specialties like Geraldton rock lobster and North West barramundi, as well as Exmouth prawns, Rottnest scallops and Mandurah crabs. Another must-do is digging into the fish and chips at the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.
