Bites: Tiny’s spicy detour under new chef, brunch at the Elford is a drag and Shore Leave unveils celeb chefs

Tiny’s new head chef Erick Martinez plans to bring a spicy South American flavour to the menu at the popular city bar, restaurant and liquor emporium.

Raised in El Salvador, Martinez has previously cheffed at Duende, Bar Andaluz, the Brisbane Hotel and, most recently, The Amberton Beach Bar and Kitchen.

Two dishes in particular epitomise his approach. Martinez has given Tiny’s renowned roast chook a street food makeover, offering a shawarma rotisserie chicken served with toum (garlic sauce), guindilla peppers and crispy pimento potatoes.

Sounds like something you might smash after a night on the tiles — that is, bloody delicious.

Then there’s the pickled green mango with pumpkin seed gremolata, a dish recalling Martinez’s childhood days working in a cart selling pickled mango.

Situated in QV1 Plaza, Tiny’s is open Wednesdays to Fridays for lunch and dinner, and from 4pm on Saturdays.


Brunch doesn’t have to be a drag, or does it? Fab threesome Cougar Morrison, Fay Rocious and Donna Kebab host Beau with the Fab: XXXMas Edition at The Elford on Sunday, December 11 at 11am.

For $59 per person, there is two hours of free-flowing drinky-poos, starting with a cocktail on arrival, and a three-course share menu. Dress up and get into the festive spirit, and then get into the festive spirits.

The Elford is located at 639 Beaufort Street, Mt Lawley.

The Shore Leave festival returns to Geraldton from April 27-30 next year with a couple of gun chefs hosting events celebrating the best produce of WA’s Mid West.

Vasse Felix Wines’ Brendan Pratt presents Abrolhos octopus, scallops and western rock lobster as part of his Abrolhos Long Table Lunch menu, while celebrity chef Matt Moran puts the spotlight on historic Yanget Farm’s beef and lamb for the Midwest Paddock to Plate dinner.

Now in its third year, Shore Leave boasts more than 30 events across the four days of dining, music and art. Surf for more.
