Incongruously housed in an office block between the freeway and Perth Zoo, this long-standing fine-diner offers clever, careful food with a winning lack of pretension. Black curtains separate the long, narrow dining room from the outside world and there's a deck for warmer nights. Tasting menus are what the Cabbage does best, with nicely rich emulsions, hero proteins that are allowed to shine and the occasional tip of the hat to molecular gastronomy (hello prawn floss). Whipped spiced butter accompanies glossy brioche buns, warm and buttery within, and biscuit-like on the outside. Marron, lightly seasoned and succulent, comes with pressed rockmelon and fermented strawberry. A burnt-apple mayo accompanies scallops cooked to opaque perfection. The signature suet pudding is worth seeking out, but the cheese course - Cashel Blue with a carrot and white chocolate ganache - is the real sensory roll in the hay.
