Perth Vegan: C Restaurant, CBDMay 6th, 2013 17 comments
How great are Mums?
Mine is especially lovely. And funny and kind, and was away on holidays this year for her birthday so I didn’t get to spoil her.
I decided an early Mother’s Day treat was in order.
I’d heard a rumour that C Restaurant (Perth’s only revolving restaurant) had recently gotten savvy with the vegan and gluten-free party at 33 floors in the sky! Now that’s special. I channeled my inner Trixie Belden and investigated further.
One phone call and a quick pre-order email later (to order special meals at least 3 days in advance), and we were booked in for their Sunday Luncheon – 3 courses for $60 per person.
My parentals are not vegan (yet! ) so they were free to order from the à la carte lunch menu when we arrived, whilst my Lovebug and I sat back and relaxed.
Meanwhile there were smiles, great service, great vino, great company, and stunning views.
In no time at all, the deliciousness was underway! My Lovebug and I shared the vegan dishes.
Starting with Green Leaf Salad with pear, roasted walnuts, cranberries, and orange dressing:
And Cauliflower Carpaccio with lime vinaigrette, roquette salad, pine nuts, and cranberries:
Both salads were gorgeously fresh and seasoned with just the right touch of salt and pepper to bring out all the heavenly flavours, and the portion sizes were perfect.
Next up were Wild Mushroom, fresh shitake & morels Risotto with roasted pine nuts and asparagus:
And Roasted Butternut Pumpkin Risotto with pumpkin oil and crispy pumpkin seeds:
Now, I am a very lucky woman to be in love with a man who can whip up an incredible Mushroom, Asparagus, Beetroot and Thyme Risotto in about 20 minutes flat, and I couldn’t say these Risottos were better than his, but they were creamy and tasty and hit the spot.
But the real star of the show? Dessert, baby!
Please give it up for the incredible Steamed Apple Fondant with Guava Puree and Raspberry Sorbet!
Did you catch that? SO GOOD, we need to see it again:
Holy guacamole, this dish was sublime and I was so happy I’d had the sense to order two of these (and not one of these and one of the other option – fruit & sorbet).
Oops!, I was too busy reliving the magic of this dish to take a quick snap of our soy coffees afterwards but they were just as delicious, and very strong – just the way I like them.

Bex is an incredible beauty, who is probably the cutest person I’ve ever met. She radiates positivity so much that she glows, or dare I say, sparkles. I am even more obsessed with Bex and her blog now.KristyKeepin It Kind

Rebecca posts awesome recipes and witty repartee, she is a brilliant photographer as well.
I love this blog for the density of information Rebecca delivers in a witty, fun way. Her blog’s title intrigued me and the content didn’t disappoint. It’s also chock full of great links that have been extremely helpful.
I love this blog not only for her awesome recipes, but also as a testament to how cool it is to commune with someone a half a world away (she’s in Australia, I’m in Colorado, USA).
I love Rebecca’s site. She looks so beautiful and her posts are so down-to-earth and fun. Vegan Sparkles is just an all-round cool site!MadisonVeggieful
Ms. Sparkles is an adorable Australian… We made the Cashew Cream of Mushroom soup and the Moroccan Sweet Potato Chickpea soup. Both were incredible! Vegan or no, you must try them!CatherineThe Catherine Blog
A cheerful vegan blog with great recipes and photos I would like to eat!
Vegan Sparkles makes me want to go Perth! She has probably won The Sunshine Award a dozen times but she’s just too adorable to leave out of this list.LindsayLindsay is Vegan
