Sizzling flavours from Asia land in Perth

One of the most pleasant gourmet surprises of 2022 was the excellent pan-Asian food at Miss Mi in Melbourne's Movenpick Hotel.

Now Miss Mi has opened its doors in Perth at a laneway location at the Novotel Perth Murray Street (follow the illuminated wall mural).

Miss Mi's menu is a mix of dishes influenced by the cultures, cuisines and aromatics from across South-East Asia, which doesn't always work but was a huge hit in Melbourne.

Guests can choose from flavours from Bangkok to Borneo and the man entrusted with emulating the success of the Melbourne venue is Filipino chef Alex de Leon, who has previously cooked at Perth eateries Apple Daily, Low Key Chow House and Dainty Dowager.

Miss Mi Perth will focus on Asian grill styles: charred, caramelised, smoked and scorched.

The menu will range from street snacks to larger share-style dishes including grilled octopus with cucumber, mint and lassi, and lamb shoulder rendang with, toasted coconut with chilli, as well as Szechuan glazed lamb ribs with pickled red cabbage and garlic crumb on smoking paperbark.

The menu differs from the Melbourne eatery but shares some dishes, including kinilaw, the raw fish salad from the Philippines. 

“Showcasing the unique ingredients, dishes and complex flavours of Asia is at the heart of the Miss Mi philosophy," says de Leon.

"We want to evoke memories of your trips to Asia. We make all our sauces, spices, curries, and sambals in-house. We pair them with the best produce from local suppliers to bring these bold, vibrant dishes to Perth diners.”

The drinks list features a range of Asian-accented cocktails, while the mural at the entrance (above) is inspired by a traditional Chinese streetscape dotted with red lanterns.

Miss Mi Perth is open for dinner Tuesday to Saturday, 5:30pm to 10:00pm and lunch Thursday and Friday, 12:00pm to 3:00pm (closed Monday and Sunday).
