Suki Randhawa owns and operates Perks Kitchen at Westfield Garden City, and has been serving quality meals to patrons for the past seven years. Specialising in brunch and breakfast options alongside a delicious lunch and dinner menu, Perks Kitchen is a great spot to take a load off while shopping or to catch up with friends. The menu is a mixture of westernised options with influences from Indian cuisine, using ingredients sourced fresh and locally from Bidvest and artisan producers. Must-try options include the Canadian pancakes with bacon and craft maple syrup or slow poached egg stack with mushrooms and spinach for breakfast, paleo chicken soup for lunch or the slow-cooked leg of goat with curried chickpeas and rice pilaf for dinner. Perks Kitchen is renowned for its pot-brewed chai, made using full cream milk, raw sugar, Himalayan tea leaves, ginger root, cardamon pods, cinnamon bark and ajwain. Suki’s British background is reflected in the drinks list, which contains two bawdy British varieties Old Fart Ale and Sheep Shagger Scotch Ale. The robust and rustic interior of Perks Kitchen makes it a cosy spot to avoid the hustle and bustle of Westfield Chermside – stop in and relax with a pot of chai or a cup of Campos coffee next time you hit the stores.
