Brika Meze Bar

Located just outside the hustle and bustle of Northbridge, Brika is one of the first authentic Greek meze bars in Perth offering contemporary Greek cuisine with a rustic twist.

Upon entry, you almost instantly recognise the robust, refreshing, rustic and edgy ambiance that links in with left-of-centre eateries. With exposed timber rafters, a chalkboard menu, rustic timber tables and chairs, exposed concrete with Drachmas (Greece’s old currency) cemented into the floors, assorted window frames and edgy graffiti art gives the space a Greek rustic feeling with an Australian hipster lifestyle twist. A rough choice of materials are used in the restaurant, however it adds to the welcome and cosy feeling of the space.

The guests have the option to dine inside or outside, however with the huge openings that span the whole front wall, dining inside still emanates an ‘alfresco’ feel. The alfresco extension area is located on the pavement in front of the restaurant. Fully roofed and decorated with exposed rafters. It is hits home perfectly for Australians that love enjoying the outdoors.

The seating arrangement along the window is a smart use of space, with the wide window sill doubling as a bar-like table for dining. This is appealing for the solo-diner, especially on the go, while also adding a bustling vibe to the full restaurant when in full swing. 

With a casual and young atmosphere, there’s no surprise that the dishes are designed to be shared; which complements the vibe, rustic and casual ambiance of the space.

The menu lists dishes by their Greek moniker, accompanied by an English explanation next to it. The waiters will always be happy to explain the menu to you if in doubt too.

To start lunch, we ordered a shot of skinos mastiha, a sweet Greek liquer from the island of Chios. With two hungry boys on the table, we ordered saganaki (kefalograviera cheese pan fried), patates (hand cut potatoes with sea salt oregano) and melitzanosalata (smoked eggplant spread for the meze), followed by manitaria (mushroom mix saute garlic), prawn saganaki, ¼ boneless Chicken with Maryland souvla rotisserie and a spinach & rocket salad with goats curd cheese. Finishing off with dessert, we ordered the Loukomades; greek donuts topped with honey walnuts.

All the dishes were presented as equally rustic as the setting; not extremely tailored but still full of class in its edgy yet simple presentation. 

Each of the dishes were splendid; full of flavour and delicious! Even my Greek partner in crime agreed. 

This is not our first trip to Brika, and I can assure you, it won’t be our last either. Efharisto Brika!
