Enrique’s School for Bullfighting, Mt Lawley


Lark Distillery Pepperberry Gin & tonic, with apple and mint ($10)

Just a quick one from a couple of weeks ago, where I visited Enrique’s School for Bullfighting, a pop-up bar on Mt Lawley’s Beaufort St cafe strip. Done by the guys who brought us the Beaufort Street Merchant and The Trustee Bar & Bistro, this temporary bar serves tapas style food and a lot of different kinds of gin and tonic. As we were setting off for Tasmania the next morning and wanted to save some money and energy to spend over there, I just ordered a gin & tonic – which is not such a simple thing at a bar which boasts 15 gins, 5 tonics, and 15 different garnishes. Thankfully they printed some handy suggestions of combinations at the moment, and I went with a Lark Distillery Pepperberry Gin with one of the tonics (no idea which!) plus apple and mint ($10). The old G&T is a favourite of mine on a hot day, and I appreciated having not only more options to choose from, but suggestions of good combinations.

I didn’t end up ordering any dishes, but peeking at the ones coming out confirmed my suspicions of it being Perth-style ‘tapas’, (that is, tiny overpriced dishes), which I’m finding I don’t have much patience for after experience the magnificence of pinxtos and tapas in Spain. I’m not sure I’d attempt to make a meal out of it, but the menu descriptions (plus the excellent gin) have piqued my interest enough to want return for drinks and snacks sometime before they pack up in February 2014.
