Filipino food hasn’t become quite as mainstream as many other cuisines in Perth, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a thriving community with some stellar Pinoy restaurants to delve into. We’ve rounded up 10 of our favourites:

Congee House

Cockburn’s Congee House is an Asian fusion restaurant that specialises in Filipino cuisine, serving up its namesake congee in a style that straddles both the Chinese and Filipino arroz caldo. You’ll also find plenty of other Filipino favourites on offer, like adobo, sisig, and kaldereta.

Shop 9/ 23 Junction Boulevard, Cockburn Central

Lola’s Filipino Diner

Started by the team behind beloved burger joint RoyAl’s, Lola’s Filipino Diner pays homage to their Filipino heritage and the food they grew up with. The crowd favourite is, of course, the fried chicken gravy – Lola’s ode to Jollibee’s chicken joy.

Chef Knowell’s

Coventry just can’t miss, and yet another heavy-hitter amongst the market is Chef Knowell. Serving up plenty of Filipino faves, all with the Chef Knowell flair – from house-made silog, sizzling sisig, crispy pata and plenty of sweets, including (of course!) refreshing halo-halo, served with homemade ube, buko pandan and langka sorbetes.

Coventry Village, 243-253 Walter Road West, Morley

Kusina Republik

Another pint-sized powerhouse, Kusina Republik will sort you out with some big Filipino street food flavours – especially if you’re craving isaw and pork BBQ, grilled over charcoal every Saturday. Plus, you can pop into neighbours Melissa’s Supermarket for some Pinoy groceries and goodies to take home.

72-74 Warton Road, Huntingdale

Ready Eddie’s Cafe

Hammy Hill’s Ready Eddie’s Cafe will fill the silog-sized hole in your heart. Freshly-made lumpia, pork adobo and grilled pork belly, fried tilapia and more are all on offer – though we find it hard to resist that crispy pork hock. Don’t worry – if pork’s not your vibe, there’s plenty of vegetarian options, too.

Kabayan’s Buffet

What’d we tell you? Coventry just can’t miss, and Kabayan’s is just more proof. While they offer a multitude of Asian cuisines, their specialty is definitely their tasty Pinoy offerings – which are also a total bargain. Head there on a weekday for their $12 combo, or feast at their weekend buffet, which is a measly $20.

Coventry Village, 243-253 Walter Road West, Morley

House of Pinoy

Another innocuous strip mall treasure, House of Pinoy has you covered with all your tasty Filipino faves – from chorizo de Cebu, to crispy pata or oxtail kare-kare, all cooked with homey heart.

Timberlane Village Shopping Centre, 497 Beechboro Road, Beechboro

Cuevas Food House

Whether you’re looking for a sweet treat or a savoury lunchtime feast, Cuevas is the place for you. As well as a variety of savoury goodies for dining in or taking home (including sinaing na tulingan, grilled squid, laing and heaps more), they also have a bounty of sweeties on offer – like ensaymada, leche flan and moist, oh-so-sweet, cheese-topped yema cakes.

Filipino Favourites

It’s more than worth hunting down pop up and food stall Filipino Favourites. Their menu is a perfect entry point for any newcomers to Filipino cuisine, with charcoal-y chicken inasan or adobo burgers ready to convert any skeptics.

Bikol Express

With locations in Armadale and Medina, Bikol Express is making it even easier to get your hands on some Filipino favourites, accompanied by some warm and welcoming service (and karaoke!). Bikol Express by name, express by nature: they’ve also got plenty of grab and go goodies for when you need your fix extra fast – think cheese donuts, pilipit and biko.
