Joshua De Vries oversees the culinary team at Pearl + Co (which is part of the Mures Tasmania group). His contemporary menu is brimming with quick and affordable bites, and focuses on oysters. There’s no better place to feast on Tasmania’s freshest seafood than at Pearl + Co, which is located right on the wharf at Victoria Dock next to the trawlers unloading their catch.
Seafood lovers will be in heaven here, whether your penchant is for prawns, oysters, scallops or fish. Pork, octopus and almond has an unusual yet excellent combination of flavours that complement each other beautifully. The almonds provide the dish with great texture. Scallops, leek and onion is perfectly cooked and divine. The strong flavours of the leek and onion do not overwhelm the delicate freshness of the scallops.
PSST! If you love to watch culinary theatre, ask to be seated at the kitchen bar so you can see the chefs in action.
