Miss Mi may be tucked down a CBD laneway, but you’ll have no trouble finding this eatery – just follow the practically intoxicating aroma of smokey, charcoal grilling and plenty of spice.
Plus, you can’t help but be drawn in by the enticing glow of that huge mural by local artist Drew Straker, inspired by the bustling, neon-lit laneways of South East Asia.
Fittingly, the menu jumps throughout the region, from Filipino okoy served with tamarind chutney, Indonesian-style grilled fish, Szechuan-glazed lamb ribs or rendang lamb shoulder – all cooked under the watchful eye of chef Alex De Leon.
De Leon has honed his passion for fusing modern and traditional Asian flavours at some of Perth’s most loved eateries – including Apple Daily, Low Key Chow House and Dainty Dowager.
“Showcasing the unique ingredients, dishes and complex flavours of Asia is at the heart of the Miss Mi philosophy,” De Leon said.
“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.”
On the drinks front, a curated cocktail list evokes hazy half-remembered nights travelling – but you’ll also find a huge selection of low and no alcohol beverages, including six tempting cocktails mixed with Lyres non alcoholic spirits.
Miss Mi is scheduled to open on Friday, February 3, and will be located at 388 Murray Street, Perth.
