Eat Drink Perth – Twilight Hawkers Markets – 28 Feb 2014

Boss Hoss BBQ - Pulled Pork, Corn Bread, Potato Salad

I stumbled upon The Boss Hoss BBQ stall and was intrigued to see what they offered. Their menu presented 3 choices – ribs, brisket, and pulled pork. Whoo hoo pulled pork! I’m a real fan of pulled pork but have yet to come across a version that compares favourably to my travels in the US. The texture, spices, and flavours are important so for $10, with corn bread and a serve of potato salad (or coleslaw if you prefer), I thought why not. The ribs and brisket are other items I’d love to try from the US themed menu. I really enjoyed this snack which is quite filling, more something in between a snack and a meal. Now ribs or brisket next time around? . . . → Read More: Eat Drink Perth – Twilight Hawkers Markets – 28 Feb 2014

USA, New York - 11 Madison Park

11 Madison Park - Course 7: Option #2 Seared Foie Gras

I’ve never had a degustation with so many courses and while I was full, I wasn’t uncomfortable fortunately, but not far from it. It was also my first time to a world ranked restaurant and a 3 Michelin star restaurant. We entered at 7pm and left at 12:20am – yes, over 5 hrs of eating and drinking! However, it was all delivered at a comfortable pace. I loved the duck and sea bass and was amazed at what they did with tomato in creating a confit, jelly and soda. However, I can’t say I was blown away with what I ate. Maybe I’m unfairly drawing comparisons to other restaurants with courses, but the London restaurants, The Ledbury and Petreus, were far superior in flavour and far cheaper. The setting of the restaurant at 11 Madison Park is modern and smart, while the service was highly professional. Some meals had a bit of theatre and drama and while the food was prepared to a high standard and quality, in some dishes I didn’t think the ingredients always paired well in terms of flavour. There were some really clever techniques employed such as the numerous ways they utilised tomato, but in the end, it’s all about the taste and it didn’t reach the high levels I was expecting. . . . → Read More: USA, New York – 11 Madison Park

Monterey's - 19 Jul 2012

The coupon offering a $50 buffet at $30 only is a bargain. While the buffet range was massively reduced, it still offered good value. However, come tasting time, I was very disappointed with the average tasting meals at best. I can’t really say there were any highlights and were quick to leave. The food wasn’t horrible, but it was average. I’d prefer to have ordered a meal at another restaurant instead. I’m not sure what has happened, but the standard has really fallen to an all time low. Your money is best spent elsewhere. . . . → Read More: Monterey’s – 19 Jul 2012

Atrium @ Burswood - 21 Jun 2012

For $39.90 per head for lunch (check pricing during weekends etc), the range on offer is unbeatable. There’s a range of dishes from a variety of cuisines that should please everyone. I think what let down the offering was the lack of consistency in flavour. The dishes weren’t horrible by any means but while the Asian dishes were delicious, the others were let down in taste and could have been a shade more tender. The same went for the desserts. The eclair was excellent and some other cakes not bad. The waffle was passable and one can eat better outside while the ice creams were enjoyable. I think if you want a range of cuisines, for the price it’s worth a visit. Given parking is $15 for the day, it’s worth becoming a Club Burswood member for free which entitles you to other discounts amongst parking and the Atrium. Entertainment cardholders get 25% off up to $40. . . . → Read More: Atrium @ Burswood – 21 Jun 2012

Monterey's - 14 May 2012

For $25 with the coupon the variety is amazing and allows you to try a wide selection of dishes that suit your tastes. I think my last visit was far superior with some of the dishes this time round lacking the right flavour balance and seasoning. The meals weren’t horrible though and there were other dishes to lift the experience. I loved the prawns, smoked salmon, yabbie, quesadilla, soup, Asian stir fry, Mongolian casserole, mousse, certain tarts, and the cappuccino ice cream. Excellent value, pleasant setting, excellent variety and service. There were plenty of other people there, some of which used the coupon to enjoy a lovely spread. . . . → Read More: Monterey’s – 14 May 2012
