Choux Cafe - 23 Dec 2011

Choux Cafe - Various

The pastry in all items were delicious. Light and soft. While the pastries were enjoyable, I felt they didn’t quite hit the mark of other pastries I have eaten at other patisseries. I particularly enjoyed the blueberry slice and the quiche was an absolute standout. I could have easily kept on easting more. One slice just wasn’t enough. . . . → Read More: Choux Cafe – 23 Dec 2011

Secret Garden - 21 Dec 2011

Enjoyed dining outside in the undercover and enclosed garden. My burrito was good but could have been more flavoursome with stronger level of spices required. The salad and salsa were lovely though. I was more than full with the affogato and my meal. . . . → Read More: Secret Garden – 21 Dec 2011

Greenhouse - 7 Dec 2011

An adventurous menu selection today, trying crumbed pigs head and trotters. Wow! I really loved it and would certainly recommend you try it. The flavours of the crumbed pocket is delicious and the texture of the crunchy crumbing delicious. The soft pork meat is something to be savoured and has a unique, soft taste. The warm salad is just as delicious and contains quite a subtle chilli kick. The salad is the perfect complement to the dish where a certain freshness and softness in flavour is needed to counteract the slightly intense filling of the pockets. I loved my meal and left satisfied and full. . . . → Read More: Greenhouse – 7 Dec 2011

The Terrace Lounge - 6 Dec 2011

A very well made fish and chips. The crispy batter may have been in the deep fryer a bit too long but the crispy batter was delicious and the fish tender. I loved the chips and the tartare sauce and the fresh salad topped things off. A decent serving left me a satisfied and full customer. Excellent value meal. . . . → Read More: The Terrace Lounge – 6 Dec 2011

Belgian Beer Cafe

Apart from some aspects of the service and the long wait for our pre-ordered meals, I quite enjoyed my Roman gnocchi with the ingredients working well on the plate. The lovely Napolitana sauce was the highlight with the soft, slightly cheesy semolina gnocchi complemented well by the sauce and fresh basil. The Belgian waffles were lovely too. Quite a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a group lunch and knock back a few beers. Meal offers available Monday – Thursday. . . . → Read More: Belgian Beer Cafe

Twilight Hawkers Markets - Friday 27 Nov 2011

Well after the success of the twilight hawkers markets held as part of the Eat Drink Perth Food festival that ran earlier this March, I’m glad to see they’ve started it up again. This time, this food event is running every Friday from CHOGM in October to March 2012 next year. Open every . . . → Read More: Twilight Hawkers Markets – Friday 27 Nov 2011

Hong Kong BBQ House - 13 Nov 2011

A first look at the menu left me a bit shocked at the prices. Asian food in general is very affordable but the prices here were a bit steeper than the usual Asian restaurant. That said, the food was very tasty and the preparation of the roast duck and BBQ pork is not something that is whipped up in a jiffy and involves a great deal of preparation to get the meat cooked just right with crispy skin of course. The roast duck and minced beef fried rice in XO sauce were stand outs. They also serve dishes such as shark fin soup, tooth fish, jelly fish and sea cucumber. The servings were commensurate with the price, the food delicious, the service excellent and an enjoyable experience all round. Plenty of food left over which we took home to enjoy later. . . . → Read More: Hong Kong BBQ House – 13 Nov 2011

The Prophet Lebanese Cafe

Well, for predominately vegetarian food apart from the lamb skewers, we were all really full and satisfied with our meals. I had a nice night enjoying some unique flavours and tasty food. The restaurant provides a warm comforting setting with warm friendly service from the family run business. Among our small group, it worked out to cost a tad over $20 a head. Who said vegetarian can’t be tasty? BYO and cash only. . . . → Read More: The Prophet Lebanese Cafe
