Chapas is the central point between Spanish-style service and classic Chinese cooking, taking the iconic dishes of the many cuisines that constitute contemporary China and portioning them in sharing small plates and platters. Tapas dishes are all the rage, and so the logical step of using that serving method and applying it to Chinese cuisine isn’t that hard a jump to make, and at Chapas on Beaufort Street in Perth’s Mount Lawley district, they are making the very most of it. Let us give you a brief introduction to what you will discover when you arrive at their doorstep.
To begin, you will want to split a few small plates around between you and your mates. That could be their prawn toast, vegetarian spring rolls or deep-fried honey lemon chicken wings, or more idiosyncratic dishes such as “chinizza” – the penchant for punning doesn’t stop with the name at Chapas – a Chinese pizza with scallions and mozzarella. Follow it up with char siu barbecue pork, roast duck on the bone or salt & pepper lamb cutlets – or a platter of dim sum, steamed or fried – and wash it down something from the cocktail menu. Reserve a table at Beaufort Street in Mount Lawley for a quite unique dining experience in Perth.
Great service, great food. The food was delicious and we let them choose what to bring us. The dessert was superb too. Will definitely go back.
Every time we go it gets better. This is my favourite place to eat. I have coeliacs disease and have never been sick. Excellent service and delicious food.
Loved the food, service and ambiance highly recommend this place. Its really hard for someone with gluten intolerance to go to a restaurant so this was delightful experience.
