Hangout On 20 Preston, 20 Preston Street, Como WA 6152, Phone 9474 1914.
Is Preston St the New Orange? … Pretty sure the last time I was in Como there wasn’t really a Strip. But on my way from the car to Hangout on 20 Preston I counted a good 7 or 8 Cafes. Also, there are a couple of High Rise Apartment Buildings going up nearby, so I imagine that will attract even more Cafes.
Bounced into Hangout on 20 Preston as I’d been reading good things about the food. The Café is the sister café / bar to Nasi Lemak Korner, which is right next door. NLK is one of my favourite Malaysian food places.
When I arrived, Hangout on 20 Preston’s kitchen was closed for half an hour between breakfast and lunch . So I ordered a coffee and settled back for some reading on my phone.
Also took a look over the menu. Lots of interesting items. But when Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sliders was noted, that was that.
It’s a nice Bar, loads of tables inside and out. They have a really good Wine and Cocktail list. Note to Xena: $10.00 Cocktails on Friday Nights.
My food arrived and the sliders were accompanied by the largest basket of chips I’ve ever seen. Not really in quantity but in size, the chips were enormous. They were excellent, and could well become my new “Best Chips in Perth”.
The buttermilk fried chicken was really good, as was the slaw. There just wasn’t enough of the spicy slaw. Really enjoyed the food.
