The follow-up destination from the team behind Tbsp delivers new brunch classics and winning pastries in a leafy, light-filled space.

With dishes ranging from tonkotsu congee to chorizo French toast, Forklore reflects Perth’s diverse food culture, offering brunch classics reimagined with Southeast and East Asian flavours, then delivering them with neat, minimalistic flair. What’s more impressive is how the menu caters to all tastes, while bringing twists to the familiar  suspects. Want scrambled eggs on toast? Here they’re spiced up with bacon XO sauce and topped with chilli oil. Craving something heavier?  Go for the katsu sando, with golden panko-crumbed chicken and yuzu and jalapeño slaw sandwiched between fluffy white bread. 

Soft-centered ogura French toast, with sweet red bean paste and genmaicha crunch, brings sweetness to the menu, while the tonkotsu congee satisfies all comers, the rice infused with the rich flavour of pork, then topped with chashu and a jammy egg. Forklore also knows the basics, be it smooth Five Senses coffee or complex, bittersweet matcha, then backs it up with baked goods merging French technique with Southeast Asian and Japanese inspiration: try the pandan-flavoured doughnuts; go back for crisp-fried kare-pan.
