Evening feast of many at Asado

Posted in - Food and Drink Perth on June 4th 2016 0 Comments Veal-tongue

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 …

Just Dessert at The Standard

Posted in - Chocolate & Food and Drink Perth & Perth, Australia on March 12th 2016 0 Comments Chocolate-Ganache-The-Standard

Celebrating my birthday over the weekend we dropped past The Standard in Northbridge for some sneaky dessert.  The bar is located on the fringe of Northbridge along Roe street, a few blocks down from Chinatown where the likes of Billy Lees and Uncle Billys feed late night diners.

Our first visit to The Standard and the rear garden …

A fancy New Years at Terrace Hotel

Posted in - Food and Drink Perth on January 30th 2016 0 Comments beet tart

Our New Year celebrations have been fairly low key for the past couple of years. Last year we hiked, watched a documentary about Phillippe Petit, the man who tightrope walked the north and south towers of the World Trade Center (unbelievable!),  and fell asleep before midnight somewhere in the country town of Bridgetown. It was bliss. …

On the way to the beach one weekend we stopped by Nature’s Harvest for a coffee, and to try CocoWhip. Napoleon Street, situated across from Cottesloe train station has a few good spots for coffee and Nature’s Harvest would have to be one of them.

There are a couple of options on the menu for the coconut …

Sugo is great at Tommy Sugo

Posted in - Food and Drink Perth on August 21st 2015 0 Comments vegetable-pasta-with-meat-sauce

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 …

Breakfast in an old bus garage at Propeller

Posted in - Breakfast & Brunch & Coffee & Cycle Friendly Cafes & Dog Friendly & Food and Drink Perth on July 2nd 2015 0 Comments Long-Black

Rising somewhat at an early hour, well for a Sunday morning that is, we made our way to Propeller in North Fremantle for breakfast and a much wanted coffee. Propeller opens from 7.00am which is great as most places tend to open later on the weekends. It was also nice to get in before the …

Wonderful chaos at Yelo

Posted in - Breakfast & Cake & Coffee & Dog Friendly & Food and Drink Perth & Kid Friendly & Perth Cafes & Perth, Australia & western australia on June 1st 2015 0 Comments Long-Black-and-Cake

Well, winter officially arrived into Perth last weekend and thus begins the season for coffee, tea, hot chocolate or whatever hot drink warms your belly! It’s also the season of stews, goulash, minestrone soup and beef bourguignon. My favourite season and let’s also not forget about the warm apple crumble!

Wanting to enjoy the winter sun, we …

Ocean Views at Bib & Tucker

Beginning a morning at the beach is a must do in Perth, and anywhere along the coast will do. This Good Friday holiday we headed to Leighton beach for an early (for a public holiday anyhow) morning breakfast at Bib & Tucker.  Most places tend to close on Good Friday, however, this year there were plenty open …

Too much to choose from at Little Bird Cafe

Posted in - Breakfast & Cake & Chocolate & Coffee & Cycle Friendly Cafes & Perth Cafes on March 28th 2015 0 Comments Burschetta-Northbridge

Little Bird Café on Lake Street is one of my favourite cafes in Northbridge and not just for the coffee and food. It’s a cafe with ambiance and a quaint courtyard alfresco area where you can enjoy Perth’s mostly mellow weather.

While I tend to shy away from the weekend brunch hour, Little Bird does open from …

Having a merry of a time at The Merrywell

Posted in - Food and Drink Perth on January 30th 2015 1 Comments BBQ-Duck-Sloppy-Joe

By the end of the week and following a day of trekking back and forth around town in sweltering weather, 38C, I was definitely thinking about a nice, ice cold beverage when Friday drew to a slow close.  Derek and I decided to treat ourselves and visit The Merrywell pub located within the Crown, just outside of Perth …
