The Table Community Food Centre, and Community Chef Judy Dempsey are excited to announce, for a limited time only, the return of one of Perth’s all-time favourite restaurants – The Hungry Planet!  Many people have fond memories of the famous Pad Thai and the Santorini sandwich among other delicious creations. Do you remember the brown paper menu on the walls, the busy open kitchen and the sense of community?

For two days only, Saturday June 2 and Saturday June 9, Judy will be cooking from the Hungry Planet’s original menu at The Table Community Food Centre. These special “pop-up” events are a fundraiser for The Table’s community meals program which offers free, nutritious and delicious meals three times a week.  In 2017, The Table served almost 13,000 community meals.

The pop-ups will run from 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on both Saturdays, service will be take-out only and will feature many of the Hungry Planet’s most popular dishes. Everything will be made fresh as you would expect from The Hungry Planet. Dishes on the eclectic, globally-inspired menu will highlight a variety of local ingredients. All main dishes will be priced at $25 and Judy plans to have a few of her famous desserts, side salads and specials on hand.

Orders must be called in the week prior to each event by speaking with Judy or leaving a message on 613-267-0484. Orders for Saturday, June 2nd, call by Friday, June 1st at 5:00 p.m., and orders for June 9th can be called in by Friday, June 8th at 5:00 p.m. Organizers expect popular items to sell out and encourage people to order early in the week. The menu and other details are available at (, “The Hungry Planet Pop Up” event page on Facebook ( and our new Instagram account @hungryplanet_popup.
