Location: Perth CBD, food court @ Brookfield Place
I have a more recent food review of Crust at the Victoria Park store here.
After my first visit to Brookfield Place where I tried Viet Hoa, I was keen to try Crust Gourmet Pizza Bar’s offerings. We had morning tea at work so I was a bit full, but was feeling quite hungry after 1pm and with a meeting pending, I decided to make a quick trip across the Terrace and grab some pizza. Obviously the place must be popular, as I entered the food court at around 1:30pm, there was very little pizza left in the display cabinet. The lunch time crowd had gone and with it, most of the pizza. I had a look at the different pizza offerings and was intrigued by a Peking Duck variety. The attendants told me that the price also includes a choice between a Caesar or Greek salad, or, garlic bread. I chose the Peking Duck variety and waited for that to be heated in the warming oven and opted for the Greek salad.
After making a trip back to the office, I was presented with a very large slice of pizza which was well covered with toppings. A big piece of buk choy covered one side of the pizza with plenty of thinly sliced pieces of tender Peking duck. The duck carried plenty of flavour and the sticky sweet Asian style sauce was a treat. It really brought the other ingredients together upon the crisp, thin pizza base. Buk choy on a pizza? Didn’t think it could work so well. An interesting pizza creation that works. I really enjoyed the pizza and was then on to the salad. The salad seemed pre-prepared and packed in a largish plastic contained. While the salad was quite tasty, the dressing wasn’t amply mixed so some parts of the salad were a little dry. Maybe I should have given it a good shake but I thought walking along the Terrace back to the office would have had the same effect. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the salad and loved the bits of feta and the delicious olives. I just wish there was more of the dressing which was lovely.
Crust Food Review Summary
Verdict: For $9.90 I got a largish slice of pizza with a decent serve of Greek salad. I really loved the generous layering of toppings, the delicious flavour of the tender Peking Duck and that sticky sweet Asian style sauce. The crispy thin base was tasty and the Greek salad was tasty but needed a bit more dressing. For a quick lunch that delivers on taste without breaking the bank, I recommend a trip to Crust. I wonder what other interesting pizza varieties they have? Might have to head there again.
