Dainty Dowager – Asian Street Food with Class

Dainty Dowager-Perth-Asian Street Food

Street Food is most definitely all the rage right now, if the popularity of Food Trucks on the Perth scene is anything to go by. And we just can’t seem to get enough of the authentic charcoal flavours and fresh-from-the-wok goodness that is making its way to tables around Perth.

Dainty Dowager markets itself as a Roasting House come Snack Joint come Bar, and it truly is all this and more. If the flavourful aromas don’t hit you the minute you walk through the door, then the sight of hanging roast duck in the windows will definitely give you the full Asian sensation you’re looking for.

With a menu designed to be shared, this much-loved establishment can do no wrong, comprising menu items such as coal charred pork spareribs and karaage chicken pops that get the tastebuds rejoicing. But their in-house roasted meats are definitely the drawcard for Dainty Dowager, with their roast duck, crispy roast pork and char siu barbeque pork being the highlights of the menu.


If you’re just stopping in for a drink, then you won’t be disappointed either, with their Asian Flavours extending into the bar. Their cocktail list oozes with Asian flavours and ingredients, with some far more daring than others, but each looking as delicious as the last.
