Stirling has cause to celebrate as a new Spanish/South American restaurant pops up in the hills. Miss Perez Kitchen & Bar, named after owner Rebecca Zahra’s mum, has a cozy decor with bright colours. Fireplaces, timber clad walls, jam jar light fittings, planter boxes and a burst of colours on the mural work so well together. This place looked every bit promising.
I’m definitely guilty of having sat on this post for a while, we went there for mother’s day breakfast. My mother in law absolutely loves Stirling and what better way to celebrate than to try out a new restaurant in this beautiful hills suburb in all its autumn glory. When we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff and quickly shown to our table. Coffee orders were underway as I quickly got my snaps before the rest of the crowd arrives. The benefit of an early booking! I do love how they’ve decked out the place, on the way to the washroom I noticed a private dining room which would be perfect for small parties or functions. The main dining area extends onto the deck outside separated by folding glass doors. It looked like the perfect set up for summer tapas and cocktails.
On this particular morning it was a set breakfast menu and three of the orders were for the Bacon and Eggs with Toast and Chimichurri. The bacon was rolled which usually retains moisture quite well. The serving size was on the smaller side so not T-Rex friendly.
I went for Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict. The house made hollandaise sauce was creamy and delicious while the eggs were perfectly poached. I also love roasted tomatoes so it was a nice touch for me.
My first encounter with Miss Perez probably wasn’t for their signature dishes but I would love to come back for dinner one night!
