Such a great place, very nice food, one of our favourites!
Lovely restaurant, though rather pricey for their dim sum. We had: Prawn dumplings - generous in portion size but the skin was too thick and sticky. Steamed BBQ pork buns - very small size and infused with a flavour that we couldn't pick. Didn't taste like the traditional ones. Salt and pepper tentacles - this was cooked with a batter which felt more like something from the fish and chip shop. Lovely service, but won't be going back soon.
The team at Vivisen Teahouse in Fremantle are champions of health, and everything from their carefully sourced teas, to each ingredient used throughout their menu is of exceptionally high standard. Stop in for a goji tea and fresh dim sum with friends, or opt for something a little more substantial at this Perth favourite and start with the scallion pancakes, salt and pepper squid, and refreshing cucumber salad with garlic and vinegar dressing – ideal choices for sharing. Following on, go for a Chinese classic of Szechuan beef or chicken, crispy golden butter floss chicken or twice cooked pork belly with chilli and black beans that is certainly going to invigorate your senses.
Vegetarians are well-looked after at Vivisen Teahouse as well, and you’ll find dishes like spicy sambal fried rice or the tofu and Chinese shiitake mushroom hotpot, with a range of delicious sides like baby mustard greens, stirfried with organic goji berries to fill your boots with. You’ll find Vivisen Teahouse a stone’s throw from the beautiful Fremantle coastline, and right by Fremantle markets on Point Street. Be sure to reserve ahead though because Vivisen Teahouse attracts foodies from all over Perth so they tend to fill up quickly.
