Chili Mussels from Rockpool in Perth, Australia


It seems that one of the local things to get in Perth is a dish called chili mussels, which are done up in chili, garlic, and tomato. I'm not sure if Rockpool's version above is meant to be an interpretation of that or not, but the mussels were very fresh at least, and that vermouth and pepper based broth that it came in was surprisingly punchy. Anyway, it's hard to go wrong with anything at Rockpool; I was happy with my squid ink risotto as well as a number of other starters that we had shared. The thing I maybe liked the most was a sesame old fashioned that I closed the meal with.
