A long overdue post about one of the most novel desserts I’ve had to this day. Greenhouse is in the heart of Perth city and a popular spot for workday lunches and Friday night drinks. On a quiet evening, I joined my handsome dinner date for some tapas and lovely conversation. Easily the most entertaining dish was the Passionfruit Jelly dessert that we shared.
Due to my lack of diligence, I’ve not recorded the prices for this post or discussed much about the other dishes (apologies).
Passionfruit jelly with pineapple and mango
So what made me giggle like an idiot? This dessert had popping candy :D I literally put my ear towards it and listened to it calling to me.
The passionfruit ‘jelly’ was opaque and thick, somewhat mousse-like in texture. Icy pineapple shavings were mixed together with curls of ginger that caught me by surprise. Sweet, juicy cubes of mango complemented the tanginess of the jelly. Delish!
Rabbit pie with labne and herbs
I ordered this rabbit pie the first time I visited Greenhouse. It costs around $15 and is seriously amazing. Cinnamon dusted, crumbly pastry, succulent pieces of meat *drools*. It comes with labne, a dense yoghurt that I mistook for some sort of sweet, fluffy cream. The herb salad with red onions is well-dressed and tasty, which says a lot because I usually judge people who eat salad.
Our other tapas were Afghan bread with tahini dip (thick, crusty and filling), Grilled haloumi with mixed tomato salad (tasty, but overpriced) and Squid with ancho chilli and coriander (expected sambal spiciness, disappointed).
Likes: listening to my dessert
Dislikes: driving (because I want to try their cocktails!!)
Value for money: tapas are normally a bit pricey
Overall: great spot for a first date..
