I’ve heard only good things about Fortysevenkirwanstreet. This local favourite in Floreat is well known in this leafy part of Perth’s western suburbs, and is a popular weekend hangout for locals looking for good coffee and great eats.
I finally checked it out with my best friend A, after a particularly hunger-inducing, zen-like Body Balance session on a Saturday.
Ravenous, relaxed and ready for lunch, I chose the pulled pork burrito, with black bean, chipotle and corn salsa ($20.90). A pair of flour tortillas were stuffed generously with pulled pork, and topped with a spicy chipotle salsa studded with off-the-cob kernels of corn, hearty black beans and tomato.
It was a great choice, and had me full well until dinner that night.
The house made pie of the day (Moroccan lamb and potato) with rocket and herb salad ($18.90) was A’s pick.
The filling of spicy lamb and potato was wonderfully fragrant with cumin and coriander. Both of us marvelled at the flaky pie crust, which was super rich and buttery.
