Back in 2014, there was a humble food truck roaming around Mandurah, called Dinner Peace. Ole was busy serving up delicious Aussie pub grub to customers, when the Dinner Peace team were asked by Mandurah Forum to provide a temporary pop-up store in the food court.
Upon meeting so many wonderful customers, they jumped at the chance to move permanently into the Centre. They became Cherubs Kitchen, and Ole has been there for the entire journey!
Cherubs Kitchen now specialise in traditional Italian food. While we’re still experiencing some colder weather, Ole recommends trying the fettuccine carbonara with mushroom in a creamy sauce. “It’s a nice, heart-warming dish on a cold night. Chicken and bacon pizza can always be enjoyed in every season!”
While Cherubs Kitchen has his heart, Ole also loves visiting Jo’s Place for a meal at the Centre. “They serve handmade burger patties. I enjoy a beef and bacon burger on a brioche bun,” he said. If he’s made a takeaway order, you can find Ole eating it on the beach listening to the waves and relaxing in the sun.
Cherubs Kitchen has become popular not only amongst locals (just check out their Facebook reviews), but people from all areas. Ole told us about a customer who travels quite a way for their awesome food and service.
“We have a customer to comes down to Mandurah on the train from Cannington every Saturday! He orders a bacon and egg toasted sandwich with a small flat white. He enjoys the service, team and of course the food.”
Cherubs Kitchen pride themselves on serving restaurant quality food, and they’ve got a huge selection of delicious Italian dishes. So, what would Ole serve at a dinner party for three famous people, and who would he invite?
“I’d serve pizza and pasta to Gordon Ramsay, Billy Idol and Merv Hughes — a mix of famous people who enjoy a good time and good food.” And what about if he could only eat one dish from Cherubs Kitchen for the rest of his life? “I’d choose pepperoni pizza with mushrooms as I love a good pizza base with pizza sauce, and it’s covered with pepperoni!”
If you’re feeling peckish the next time you’re in the Centre, or are looking for an easy, delicious dinner option, make sure you visit Ole and the team at Cherubs Kitchen. Using fresh ingredients and recipes passed down through generations, you’ll be transported to Italy in a single bite. Best of all, you’ll be supporting a small business.
