Lot Twenty – 7 Apr 2016


Cuisine: Modern Australian, Bar
Location: Northbridge – William Street

Yesterday I went to Lamont’s Bishop House to enjoy one of their Eat Drink Perth specials and today I’m at Lot Twenty to try another. It’s been a bit cool lately so I took a seat outside in the sun to get the warm rays. Lot Tewnty is situated in Northbridge off James Street just around the corner from William Street and close by to the State Theatre of WA, State Library of WA and State Museum. It has an open, inviting, casual space with outdoor seating and limited seating on the ground and top floors.

 

Neal Jackson’s Pork Belly $16

Neal Jackson’s roasted Linley Valley pork belly and grilled prawns, carrot tartare with a carrot and coconut sauce

Lot Twenty - Neal Jackson's Pork Belly & Grilled Prawns

The pork belly is perfectly cooked, nice and tender with the fat rendered and a lovely crunchy crackling that is not chewy. The coconut sauce is subtle and flavours the pork belly suitably. I haven’t seen South East Asian flavours used in this manner but it works a treat. The coconut sauce is more noticeable with the prawns. The prawns are soft and juicy and the shell is crunchy so you can easily eat this if you like. In between the pork belly and the prawns is a tasty and refreshing carrot tartare that cuts through the fattiness of the pork and the richness of the prawns. It cleanses the palette allowing you to effectively enjoy the different flavours.

 

Raspberry Pannacotta, Chocolate Granola, Fresh Mint $10

Lot Twenty - Raspberry Pannacotta, Chocolate Granola, Fresh Mint

I really liked the buttery crunchy granola which then contrasts textually against the soft smooth pannacoota. The pannacotta was tasty though it was a bit too sweet. The mint adds a nice pepper flavour to round out what is a tasty finish to the meal.

Verdict: Lot Twenty presents a relaxing casual atmosphere to enjoy a few drinks or a meal. As part of the Eat Drink Perth food festival Lot Twenty featured Neal Jackson’s Pork Belly, which presented crunchy crackling and tender succulent pork which was delicious. I also loved the grilled prawns with a tasty coconut sauce. The carrot tartare was refreshing cutting through the richness. For dessert I had the raspberry pannacotta with granola which was yum. I really liked the buttery crunchy granola contrasting against the smooth pannacotta which was a little too sweet for my liking.
