Evening feast of many at Asado

South American street food sounded like a superb way to begin the boy's birthday weekend.  Add a parilla BBQ and we could possibly be set for a feast of many at Asado. On a Thursday night the streets in Claremont appear to be empty and we conclude it's going to be quiet one as we short cut walk through Claremont Quarter, yet when we enter Asado the restaurant is teeming with people and I’m quietly regretting ...

Warming Lunch at The Hummus Club, Trinity Arcade

Finding myself in the city for a hectic run around kind of day also meant I had the opportunity to lunch. Woohoo! It's been a while since I've spent lunchtime in the city and I definitely miss the buzzing atmosphere and access to an elaborate spread of eateries in every nook and cranny of the CBD! With rain falling down on the terrace and me having forgotten the umbrella, I retreated into Trinity Arcade where ...

Coffee and Cake by the sea, City Beach

Located on the City Beach foreshore, Odyssea beach café is a scenic spot for an espresso. Monday mid-morning, the unexpected small queue isn’t an issue as there’s a two seat bar table on the alfresco decking area available, and with only the two of us we’re in luck today! On the way to the table we notice a cake and pastry table, and take a quick photo in passing, it's a good ...

Degustation at Print Hall Dining Room

We've been all over the place since the start of this year, working on most public holidays, Valentine's Day and more recently my birthday.  It's been chaotic to say the least. Having heard via social media the closing of the Print Hall Dining Room, a place that's been on the wish list for 18 months now, we decided to book in for the final degustation evening as a belated valentines ...

Breakfast at The Shipping Lane, North Fremante

I feel a good majority of my posts on this blog mention the words– ‘today was a beautiful sunny warm day of clear blue skies.’ Anyone not living in Perth might find this difficult to believe. Aside from my fascination with the weather, Perth truly is the sunny state and today was much the same, even better because we had an enjoyable breakfast at the breezy beach cafe, The Shipping ...

WA Restaurants in the top 500 of Australia – 2016

The good food guide editors have put together a list of 500 restaurants in Australia ahead of announcing the top 100 later in May. I've taken the dining establishments from Western Australia and organised them under neighbourhoods as well as those that do breakfast. It's great to see small bars and casual style restaurants alongside fine dining establishments in this list. Whether you are wanting to try something new, West Australian produce or ...

Breakfast and Cider in the Perth Hills

The scenery at CORE Cider House is really sensational and it hits you the moment you pull up in the car park. The cidery and restaurant is set on a slope in the Perth hills with picturesque views across its orchard and Australian forest in the background. I have to say half way though our breakfast we spotted a prey bird with a huge wing span circling low through the orchard, it ...

Raw Nachos in Fremantle

Well, 220,000 kms and 10 years later, we upgraded our car and to say the least, it has been a well deserved purchase and I'm super happy. I have a tendency for holding onto things :).  10 years sure does equal a whole heap of electronic advancements in automotion. There is a button for almost everything and seat heaters are a great idea!  To celebrate, we took Tigger (yep it has a name) for a ...

Sugo is great at Tommy Sugo

This wintery evening we stopped in at Tommy Sugo, a pop up store located at Stimulatte Café in Subiaco. Pop up, meaning the coffee centric café transforms into a pasta serving eatery in the evenings from 5pm. It's a cool concept and the name is somewhat catchy too. Fresh pasta and great ingredients combined with an Italian heritage are three standouts from Tommy Sugo’s story and philosophy. Worth a read if you are interested ...

Burgers, Ribs and Steak at Tony Roma’s

Celebrating Derek's birthday we found ourselves at Tony Roma's Restaurant in Perth's CBD. The birthday boy was super excited about tucking into some sticky slow cooked ribs.  When I initially phoned earlier in the week to make a reservation, the staff member advised the restaurant doesn't take bookings on a Saturday of which I responded 'I have a group, will this be an issue?' 'Yes ma'am, before 7pm is recommended' he said. Okay ...
