Full of warmth and packed with flavour, Manuka Woodfire Kitchen in the heart of Fremantle serves delicious local produce straight out of their wood fired oven. A newcomer at this year’s Taste of Perth Festival, Manuka took out the top spot winning Best of Taste, with their delicious wood roasted chicken.
I’ve now visited Manuka a couple of times, and would bring anyone here as they serve a crowd-pleasing menu for everyone, whether fussy or picky. Their friendly team were extremely accommodating to my friend who is gluten intolerant and doesn’t eat garlic.
We ordered two serves of the Wood Roasted Chicken ($21), one done with the exclusion of garlic. They came out in a generous serve, with pickled red cabbage and an addictive miso sauce. A standout dish, and must order every time!
Manuka’s pizzas are also cooked too perfection, the base is not too thick or thin and there are a variety of flavoursome toppings to choose from. During lunchtime we chose two pizzas, one with sweet corn, baked eggplant, peppers and fior di latte ($19) and another with roasted potato, onion, goats chevre and basil pesto ($19).
Their menu changes often based on the seasonal ingredients they can get their hands on, so expect something different on offer each time!
Good job to the team at Manuka for their amazing work so far and also at Taste, keep up the good work! I can’t wait to return for more of your menu very soon.
