A new season has come around and new dishes are now on offer at Harvest Espresso. I’ve always loved their creativity, bold flavours and strange combinations! This place has been blogged about so many times, so I’ll try to keep this short and simple.
This time round, we started with Long Macchiatos topped up and I had an Iced Matcha Tea.
For food we tried out two new dishes on the Winter Menu, the Harvest-Smoked Salmon Fillet ($26.5) and the Steamed Mandarin Pudding ($18.5). The Smoked Salmon Fillet was delicately flakey, topped with two perfectly poached eggs and combined with leek ash, toasted buckwheat, hon shimeji, braised leek, salmon caviar and butter lettuce jus. The buckwheat gave it a crispy textural element and the creamy, smokey flavours worked very well together.
The Steamed Mandarin Pudding was light and moist, with Lochan Ora jelly, crème fraiche, coconut crème gel, toasted muesli and earl grey crumble.
Overall, I give them 10/10 for creativity and giving me a reason to return with their ever-changing seasonal menu. For fellow Western Australians who live under a rock, or those from out of state who haven’t yet visited Harvest Espresso, I highly recommend trying the seasonal dishes.
