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

Forklore reflects Perth’s diverse food culture, offering brunch classics reimagined with East and Southeast 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 red bean paste and genmaicha crunch, brings sweetness to the menu, while the tonkotsu congee is rich and satisfying, the rice infused with pork, then topped with chashu and a jammy egg. This place also knows its basics, with smooth Five Senses coffee and complex, bittersweet matcha, and a line of baked goods that combines Southeast Asian and Japanese inspiration – try the pandan-flavoured doughnuts; go back for crisp-fried kare-pan.

Warm, efficient staff adroitly navigate the plant-adorned space to service crowds that, if anything, are testament to the fact that in a format that so often paints by numbers, Forklore has made the likes of katsu chicken and kare-pan into instant brunch essentials. Want proof? Join the queue.
