The minute you walk into Joe’s Oriental Diner you’re hit with the overwhelming aromas of garlic, chilli, lemongrass and many other nostril tingling fragrances. The open kitchen plays centre stage among all the traditional wood carvings and antique artefacts to transport diners into the ancient world of the Orient. In a venue with such genuine decor, I had to ask how it came to acquire such a non-traditional name. To cut a long story short, the restaurant is dedicated to Joseph Mink; an eccentric American junk millionaire who in the 1800s opened a small noodle house in Singapore bearing the same name. With his cheeky pet monkey playing the piano, the venue fast became the place to be seen and a haven for great tasting food. Sadly one night Joe had one too many Singapore Slings and knocked over the kerosene heater, burning the diner to the ground.
Located on the ground floor of the Hyatt Regency in Perth’s CBD, this particular version of Joe’s Oriental Diner is without the piano-playing monkey yet offers amazing South East Asian cuisine. Following traditional recipes to create dishes such as tom yum kung (hot and sour prawn soup), Thai fish cakes and prawn toast for appetisers, the international chefs hail from a range of different regions to ensure the food is as authentic as possible. Servings are of decent proportions and those with a penchant for Asian style noodles and soups will love the curry laksa, fried kway teow, pad Thai and Malaysian mee goreng. If you prefer a hit from the wok, there are plenty of dishes to choose from like the chilli crab, beef rending and Fu Yong shrimp omelette. With “chilli ratings” next to each dish on the menu, it’s the perfect spot to introduce the kids to the flavours of the Orient.
