Decided to head on out to Crown Perth today, a lovely Friday with my Hubby to have a few bets at the Casino and have lunch at The Merrywell.



We've dined here before and love the casual vibe and American style menu. The Merrywell won WA's Best Steak Sandwich Competition in 2013!! I wish I could have eaten one of these but the portion sizes are very generous and I think I would have had to be carried out after one of these and a beer or 2!



My husband stuck to his usual 'Really a Reuben' Burger, with salty pastrami, sauerkraut, swiss cheese and a nice dressing, served with potato crisps. What really makes it special for him is that we can order the El Pacifico Clara Mexican beer ($10.50) that we can't find ANYWERE else in Perth....only Rockpool and The Merrywell. If anyone can help us find this particular beer in Perth that'd be so helpful!!



We had the 'Jalapeno Pepper Corn Dogs' for starters, and they reminded me of a Dagwood dog you get from the Royal Show but so much tastier. The corn batter was crispy, tasty and I ended up eating more then I expected.



Finally my mains, which was the 'Meryywell Macho Nachos', they had 2 options Angus beef or BBQ pulled pork, so I chose the latter and as I said before the portion size was great value! I left half on the plate.



We will definitely be back to The Merrywell very soon, very keen to try the Alaskan King Crab on the Dinner menu and have a few drinks from the huge variety on tap.

Also, next month they will be launching a Food Truck bringing all the American "dude food" they create at Crown to Festivals, Markets, Beaches etc, you can also book them for private or corporate functions! Awesome!

  1. Yummy! Sounds just as good as Merrywell Melbourne, with that modern twist on some favs. If ever they have a baked snapper make sure you try! That's what I had last time and it was great.
