These Days … A revisit to Kailis Brothers Leederville has been a long time coming. So, with the decision made, off I went to Leederville. Xena may never forgive me for going solo.
The food, on the last visit, did not meet expectations. And, only because those expectations were based on all the fabulous meals we’d eaten at Kailis. So, it was time to see what the food was like these days.
Kailis Brothers Leederville is a clean, crisp environment with spotless floors and an open kitchen. There is also a mini Fresh Fish Market in the same building.
Staff were enthusiastic and very efficient. Had tap water and menus on the table quickly. And, my glass of Italian Prosecco was not far behind them.
Ordered one of the Specials. Panko and Parmesan breaded King George Whiting with a beetroot, spinach, walnut and goats cheese salad. And, a pretty near perfect dish for me, all my favourites on the one plate.
When the food was put in front of me the first thing noticed was the herbs embedded in the crumb which enhanced the flavours considerably. Basil, pretty sure.
So, can’t praise the dish enough. The fish was firm, white and perfectly cooked. The spinach was fresh and the combination of the other ingredients made it pretty memorable. Yum.
Oh, and that Prosecco was totally on point. Wine makers have been creating Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco since 1876. From the Veneto region, approximately 56 KM from Venice.
It’s a pleasant place to sit and watch the world go by, as Oxford Street is very busy. Nice, comfortable surrounds and muted low key muzak made lunch a treat.
