IT’S OFFICIAL! CROWN IS ONCE AGAIN HOME TO PERTH’S BEST STEAK SANGA - 17 May 2018
The Merrywell’s Merry Had a Lamb Sanga takes the crown as Perth’s Best Steak Sandwich at the AHA WA Hospitality Expo.
Show Details

PERTH, 17 May 2018: Third time is certainly the charm for The Merrywell, taking out the metropolitan title in AHA WA’s Best Steak Sandwich competition for a third time at the AHA WA Hospitality Expo held in the Crown Ballroom on Wednesday 16 May.
 
The ‘steaks’ were high as The Merrywell Chef de Cuisine, Daniel Lopes, battled it out against three other finalists in the grand final cook-off, which saw Crown Perth’s hero pub come out on top with its mouth watering Merry had a Lamb Sanga.
 
The panel of judges couldn’t get enough of the winning flavour combination - with grilled lamb rump steak, chipotle & fig relish, beetroot pickle, feta mayonnaise & pistachios on a custom designed potato & roast onion bread.
 
With The Merrywell taking out the metropolitian award for Best Steak Sandwich in both 2013 and 2015, Chef Lopes says he was resolved to reclaim the title and up the ante for his first ever entry since taking over as the pub’s Chef de Cuisine.
 
“This year we decided to try something different by incorporating WA lamb along with locally sourced produce. It’s an exciting flavour combination that has also proven very popular with our customers”, said Lopes.
 
Specialty sangas are in high demand on the menu at the moment, with a West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers sanga battle currently on offer – with $5 from every team-themed sanga combo purchased going to charity.
 
Lopes will now take the battle to the rest of the state. The metropolitan and regional winners are now in the running for WA’s Best Steak Sandwich which will be announced at the AHA-Aon Hotel & Hospitality Awards for Excellence.

BATTLE OF THE SANGAS - WEST COAST AND FREO JOIN FORCES TO RAISE MONEY FOR CHARITY - 25 April 2018
Ahead of the Derby this Sunday, the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers ask their fans to put their money where their mouths are - all in aid of a good cause.
Show Details

Wednesday 25 April. As West Australian footy fans gear up for the inaugural AFL Western Derby at Optus Stadium this Sunday 29 April, The Merrywell has come together with both the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers to launch two footy-themed “sangas” to raise money for both clubs’ charity of choice - with $5 from every combo purchased going to each clubs’ charity.
 
Available from ‘Derby Day’ this Sunday April 29th, West Coast Eagles’ fans will be able to tuck into the ‘Eagles Big Bird Sanga’, filled with buttermilk fried chicken, oozy cheese sauce - in true honour of the golden team colours – topped with coleslaw ranch, lettuce and tomato between crispy waffles.
 
Fremantle fans will be able to indulge in the ‘Freo Surf n Turf Sanga’ which pays homage to the club’s maritime history, loaded with popcorn prawns, mouth-watering roast beef, cheddar hi-melt cheese and a punchy remoulade sauce – all served up with lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles on crunchy toasted sourdough.
 
The West Coast Eagles are supporting Telethon, one of Australia's leading children's research centres, dedicated to improving the lives of kids and young people. Freo are supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities, an organisation that helps seriously ill children and their families.
 
Crown Perth’s Chief Operating Officer – Food, Beverage & Entertainment, Andrew Hill, says Derby time provides the perfect opportunity to indulge your team pride in a “sanga” for a good cause.
 
“West Australians love their footy but their passion also runs deep when it comes to giving. We are home to the country’s greatest proportion of charitable givers,” he says. “We are excited to bring two passions together and help us collectively raise money for two causes that make a real difference in the WA community.”[1]
 
So who does Hill think will win?
 
“In terms of our tip on which “sanga” will prove more popular, I think we’ll stay on the fence for this one and barrack for both great community organisations.”
 
Get behind both teams and head to The Merrywell from Sunday, 29 April. The team-themed combos will be on-sale for one month - the question is which “sanga” will you side with?
