Lunch By My Chimmy Chim Chim - Perth

The ever hip and lovely Miss. A was in charge of organising lunch for us. Of course she chose one of the hottest place in Perth at the moment, Long Chim. Located in the newly renovated Treasury building, now the Cathedral Square. If you haven't had the chance of checking out the new Cathedral Square, I highly recommend you go toute suite. It has a very cool Melbourne vibe and all the new dining places there are really making a name for themselves. 

Long Chim is located at the basement level. Even at 1pm in the afternoon it has a bar-y vibe with the neon lights. We felt hipper by just being there. As this place has been highly documented on social media, Miss. A already knew what we should order even before we sat down.

Pad Thai ($33)
Green Curry of Chicken ($26)
Roast Duck on Rice ($33)

Yes, don't be surprised we ordered three main dishes to share between the two of us. Needless to say we couldn't finish everything. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take away the food, the waitress did say why, but she mumbled so quickly we missed the explanation. 

As you can imagine I really wanted to love the food at Long Chim, however, the dishes fell short of my, admittedly inflated, expectations. The pad thai looked amazing, those prawns looked so juicy, however, the flavours were not authentic and it was excessively tart. The green chicken curry was tasty, however, it was too spicy for my taste, but I guess that's my personal preference. The roast duck was the tastiest dish of the three and the duck breast was lovely and tender. The flavours were amazing too. But, for $33 there definitely should've at least half a duck on that dish!

Banana Roti ($13)

This brings me to the last dish. We ordered banana roti for dessert, again Miss. A already knew this was dessert to have. This dish was by far my favourite and I have nothing negative to say about it. The roti was crispy, there was just enough bananas and the perfect amount of condensed milk to make it sinfully delicious. The roti had a filo pastry texture, which made it more crispy than other rotis and made this dessert something special! My photos and words are not doing it justice, you seriously have to try it for yourself.

We didn't love all the dishes at Long Chim and we were less than impressed with the prices, but the banana roti closed our lunch with a delicious bang and made it all worth it! It would make a great midnight snack and I wish I was having some right now!
