I have been working on Sundays for a few years and with a change of job position, I now have Sundays off which means I get to try new brunch places with friends and family. Last weekend, my parents and I head to Frisch and Barc located in South Perth which is new to the brunch scene. We arrived just before noon and the tables were mostly occupied already but we were lucky to be seated straight away. Just after a few minutes there was already a wait for a table!
Mum had the brioche french toast ($17.90) with coconut and pandan custard, berry with apple compote and crushed pistachio. It’s soft in texture with an added freshness and colour from the berries and crushed pistachio. The apple compote gave the brioche french toast its sweetness and the coconut and pandan custard added an Asian twist to the french toast.
I had the singapore chilli crab omelette ($24.90) with grilled shimeji mushroom, Asian herb salad and ciabatta toast. The omelette was light and fluffy. Inside the omelette, there was shredded crab meat. I love the singapore chilli crab sauce on the side giving the omelette its sweetness. However, the only negative was that the bread at the bottom was a bit hard.
Dad had the black angus corned beef potato hash ($23.90) with kale, fried egg and sriracha soy. The potato hash was crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. What stood out in this dish was definitely the rich sriracha soy giving the potato hash and corned beef its flavour. Truly scrumptious.
We also indulged in a salted caramel brownie from the Gluten Free Table. The salted caramel sauce to be injected into the brownie was to die for.
With a take on a combination of flavours inspired by Australian, American and Asian, it is no doubt that Frisch and Barc is so popular in the brunch scene since its opening. The food had a very clever and innovative take on different flavours. It would be interesting to see what other dishes they can offer in the future!
