Gastronomy is all about the way that food and culture are combined. Eating the food of a certain culture is almost a transporatative experience where you feel like you’ve been whisked away to France, just by eating a scrumptious croissant, or sent to the beach by devouring a freshly caught plate of fish with chips.
It may not be as effective as a holiday, but these five dining destinations in Perth all have a great power to deliver amazing food to your table and inspire you with gastronomy. To celebrate Scoopon Perth’s Gastronomy Week, we’ve featured five top restaurants and why we love their food and atmosphere.
