Miss Mi is a sprawling venue with comforting Filipino food and a strong drinks offering. Filipino-born head chef Alex De Leon (now-closed Low Key Chow House) blends traditional Southeast Asian techniques with modern presentation and local ingredients.
You’ll want to get messy with melt-in-your-mouth lamb ribs coated in a luscious Szechuan glaze, chicken wings with Filipino-style spicy banana ketchup, or kangaroo skewers, marinated overnight and sprinkled with candlenut and coconut. There’s also a truly sublime side dish of garlic fried rice with beef fat crumbs and a perfectly runny sous-vide egg.
The drinks list includes cocktails that feature complementary Asian flavours; for example, the Pandan Escape with vodka, house-made pandan syrup and coconut milk, and the Wasabi Mi which blends the hot and cool flavours of wasabi, cucumber, gin and lemon juice. For those on the alcohol-free train, there is a large selection of non-alcoholic beers, wines and mocktails made with Lyre’s non-alcoholic spirits.
Larger than its Melbourne sibling, Miss Mi Perth seats 180 across the dining room and two semi-private dining areas. The space is clad in comforting dark, natural woods housing earthy pottery, and wall murals that evoke the smoke of a fiery barbeque. A neon mural by local artist Drew Straker that glows with electric colour after dark is also a highlight.
