el PUBLICO, 511 Beaufort Street, Highgate, Phone 0418 187 708.
Mexican Brunch … el PUBLICO is a stalwart member of the Highgate eateries. The venue has been around since the rebirth of the small bar scene in Perth, Circa 2013. Their new twist is to offer Brunch on the Weekends and let me tell you, it’s worth a visit.
Love the décor of el PUBLICO with it’s bright colours and the skulls and cacti adornments. And their little Burro which appears in lights in the Bar and on the napkins and menus.
So, the Brunch menu is small but perfectly formed and I liked the sound of just about every dish. The Huevos Rancheros was definitely the dish for me.
My meal arrived with the explanation that the Tortillas, Cheese and Salsas were all house made. An impressive start and the plate of food looked amazing.
Cut into one of the baked eggs and the yolk colour was dark orange, always a good sign. Delicious creamy eggs that blended well with the other ingredients.
The cheese was crumbled all over the dish and it turns out there were three eggs. A large dollop of smooth Black Beans, soft corn tortillas and that salsa wow. Every element was spot on.
I had a smile on my face from start to finish and enjoyed every mouthful.
The coffee was extraordinary. Not only was it above lukewarm it was very strong in a very pleasant way. Made with love.
Oh and the music was amazing it added to the whole experience.
