We had been to Joe’s earlier in the year and had come away with a good impression, so in Subiaco before Christmas and looking for a quick snack before heading off to St John’s to meet our new granddaughter we stopped in again.
It is a rambling sort of place with areas opening out onto the street front, as well as a number of rooms inside the meandering building meaning there are plenty of places to sit back and eat and drink.
The wine list is pretty well put together – a good range of price points, varieties, regions – both Australian and international – and styles – with a sound by the glass selection.
Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner – with a range of smaller – what they term tapas – as well as larger mains – the menu is pretty well priced.
A couple of beef sliders – juicy patties with smoked cheese, rocket and smoky barbeque sauce and with sweet potato chips was hailed as very enjoyable.
My chilli tuna roti also satisfied – triangles of roti slathered with a mix of tuna, chilli, red onion, tomato and guacamole was full of contrasting flavours and textures and of generous proportion.
A glass of Margaret River’s Churchview Silverleaf rosé washed it all down.
From our two visits we think Joe’s has added something positive to the Subiaco strip, helping to enliven an area that has been somewhat dead and in decline – hopefully with places like this, things are looking up.
