They’re big on food at Kilo in Hay St

ONE group to see the merit in the East Perth district is Gastronomical Pty Ltd, an international commercial property developing company.

Opening the sleek and stylish Kilo Restaurant later this month, Singaporean owners Brian Ang and Helen Ng have chosen 202 Hay St as the site of their first Kilo brand restaurant.

They are currently looking at sites in Singapore and Melbourne to open similar restaurants that are contemporary in style and based on the northern Europe dining.

The eating habits of Northern Europeans are reflected in Kilo’s menu, with food particular to the region, from mussels to beer battered fish, and an extensive drinks list.

“Kilo is based on the idea of serving great tasting mussels, frites, and beers long associated with the Benelux countries,” Mr Ang says.

Kilo, like its literal weights and measure term, will be based on a “big on food” concept, with serving portions, menus, and interior design based on the weights and measure concept.

“We aim to provide people with a fun, fresh and modern food service experience which offers great value for money,” Mr Ang says.

The main restaurant is fitted to seat up to 160 guests. There’s also a private dining room and alfresco seating and lounge areas.

The spacious dining areas match the large menu, providing enough room, atmosphere, and culinary choices to have this place bubbling with East Perth corporates.

Gastronomical has spent $400,000 on this bright, contemporary and casual establishment which is sure to make a big splash.

Also in the East Perth area, the owners of the Carlton Hotel in Hay Street are determined to shake-off the pub’s slightly downmarket image in an effort to attract more punters from the after-hours work crowd.

Revamping the front room, Zelda’s, into a stylish lounge bar is the first of many planned renovations for the hotel.

Zelda’s is now dressed in burgundy velvet and is complete with comfortable sofas for you to take a load off and indulge in a wind-down beverage after a long day at the office.

For those of you reaching for the cheque-book in a counter bid for the Subiaco Wine Room, there is no need, there was no offer on the table, the establishment’s not for sale.

Feel like a Madfish? Taste some at the Howard Park “Meet the Master & the Maker Wine Dinner” at Origins Restaurant on June 21.

Jeff and Amy Burch will be presenting their acclaimed Margaret River labels Howard Park and Madfish, accompanied by a four-course meal.

There’s nothing like a freebie to attract the punters. The C Restaurant is offering a complimentary bottle of Bunker Bay semillon sauvignon blanc when you dine with three or more guests until the end of June.

After a six-week closure for renovations, the Sail and Anchor team are back at it, launching a new beer in their new surroundings.

Brewer Peter Nolin says Fremantle Extra is a traditional-style English special bitter and is a full bodied beer with an intricate aroma of classic English hops.

Such is their high expectations for the beer, both he and fellow brewer Bill Hoedemaker are presenting it at the International Beer Awards to be held in Melbourne on June 21.

The gentlemen have spent close to half a million dollars in renovations of the famous Fremantle brewery.

Celebrate the end of the financial year at Mead’s. Warren Mead is hosting the end of financial year lunch on Friday June 29.
