International breakfast at Station Street Markets, Subiaco
I mentioned sometime ago that Jac, Juji, Jay and I enjoyed an international breakfast at the Station Street Markets in Subiaco. It’s a great breakfast option if you feel like something savoury that’s not just variations of bacon and eggs and toast.
Jay and Jac headed straight for the Mexican stall where Jay ordered spicy scrambled eggs served with refried beans and corn tortilla.
Jac and I shared a breakfast burrito, served with sour cream and salsa.
The burrito was filled with chorizo, egg, onion, capsicum, tomato and unfortunately, fresh coriander (cilantro). Every now and then I would get a hit of coriander – UGH. I am one of those people who hates coriander.
Coriander(cilantro): do you love it or hate it?
I don’t mind coriander when it’s part of spice blends and cooked e.g. in curry and part of marinades, but I cannot tolerate fresh coriander.
Juji had pupusas from the El Salvadorian stall. Pupusas are made from masa (corn meal). They were filled with shredded pork, beans and cheese.
After demolishing the burrito, Jac and I were still hungry, so we ordered a chicken and mushroom crepe from La Galette de France. When it arrived, we were a little taken aback – it looked… well, a little flat for an apparently filled crepe.
I immediately cut into it to check the filling. It was creamy chicken and mushroom filling all right, but I had to press on the crepe to make it appear! Although delicious, we thought the crepe definitely needed more filling!
After we finished the crepe, Jac was still not satisfied and went off in search of more tasty morsels. She came back with a couple of Vietnamese fried crispy-skinned stuffed chicken wings. The Vietnamese stall sells this awesome Saigon crispy chicken fried rice that I used to eat for lunch when I worked in Subiaco.
The chicken wings were stuffed with pork mince, vermicelli, carrot and other delicious things! They were like meaty lollipops. Nothing went to waste – Jay gnawed on the pointy wing tips that we left behind.
While we ate our chicken wings, Juji ordered dessert from La Galette de France – a waffle with sliced banana and cream.
The waffle was golden brown with crispy edges, the sliced banana sweet and ripe. Next time we go to Subi Markets I’m going to have a waffle. :)
Oh, and if you like freshly squeezed orange juice, make sure you try the OJ at the yoghurt stand near the entrance of the markets. It’s squeezed fresh from whole oranges right in front of you.
So that was our international (Mexican, El Salvadorian, French and Vietnamese) breakfast! See Juji’s post about this breakfast: Saturday is all right for eating
After breakfast, we bought a dozen macarons from La Galette de France and went back to Juji and Jay’s house to eat them.

The Subiaco Pavilion Markets no longer exist. My workmates and I used to buy gozleme for lunch there every week.
There is a Subiaco Farmers Market at Subiaco Primary School on Saturdays. I haven’t been yet, but Juji has written about it: Subiaco Farmers Market
