The Gaya – Applecross, Perth

Korean food is not something that I'm intimately familiar with, but I am always very interested to try new things, especially at a place like The Gaya, which strives to use Korean flavours and techniques in a modern way. "Fusion" has become somewhat of a buzz word in the culinary space as of late, and is a word that describes accurately what The Gaya tries [...]

Noodle Forum – Perth

Australia does Asian food well. Maybe adapted to our palates so not always completely authentic in the choice of ingredients and cooking methods, it is never too hard to find really high quality food inspired by the flavours and dishes of Vietnam, Thailand, Japan and China. One of the newer places to open its doors in Perth is Noodle Forum, in the Equus Arcade on [...]

Chik and Kent – Perth

Chik and Kent - whose name pays homage to Chikmagalur, a region in India known as the "land of coffee", and L.P Kent, an Englishman who planted the Doddengudda Estate - is an Indian restaurant situated towards the quieter end of Murray Street in the Perth CBD. It is one of the few places in the city centre that actually remains open on a Sunday, [...]

  • Willie Wagtail Perth - Exterior Sign

Willie Wagtail – Perth

I was walking back home from Northbridge about a week ago and noticed this small cafe on William Street that I'd never seen before. I don't know what it was, but it looked like the cooler sort of cafe; the sort that does good coffee with a unique food offering. I made a mental note to revisit when I had more time. That time was [...]

  • Sixteen Ounces Perth - Exterior

Sixteen Ounces – Victoria Park, Perth

Victoria Park has its fair share of very mediocre eating places, but it also has a bunch of really cool little cafes that do great breakfasts and brunches. Sixteen Ounces is on the Albany Highway and opened up earlier this year. Before going we had a quick look at the menu to decide what we would order for brunch - the obligatory check to make [...]

Hopper Espresso – Perth

New places are popping up all the time in Perth, so I'm never surprised to come across a new restaurant, cafe or bar when I'm doing my usual back and forth between the shopping district and my apartment. Walking down the same road every time gets boring, so I sometimes try to change up the path. Today I took a stroll down Shafto Lane (between [...]

  • Buckwheat and quinoa porridge, macerated strawberries, back puffed rice, banana and coconut

No. 4 Blake Street – Perth

Father's Day breakfast at No. 4 Blake Street in North Perth. The dishes were generally unique, tasty, and looked amazing! Enjoy this brief photoblog of some of the unique dishes on the menu. Buckwheat and quinoa porridge, macerated strawberries, back puffed rice, banana and coconut French toast with caramelised milk espuma, red wine poached quince and toasted almonds Duck and [...]

  • The Old Crow

The Old Crow – Perth

Hungover after a heavy night out, sometimes nothing pleases more than a nice, heavy, soul-comforting meal to satiate the morning's hunger. Although I was not at all hungover (perhaps a little tired from nearly thirty hours of travel from the USA), The Old Crow in Northbridge was certainly a welcomed treat. Unlike the Tuck Shop just down the road, with people brimming out the door, [...]

Headed by stockbroker-turned-restauranteur Logam, Big El's presents a menu of modern dishes from the far south, bringing together flavours and techniques from different parts of Latin America. Belinda [...]

The Fat Duck – Bray

What can I say, my lunch at The Fat Duck was by far the most spectacular, and expensive, dining experience I've ever had - I still get excited just thinking and talking about it, and cannot wait to go back the next time I go to the UK. The Fat Duck is the restaurant that brought fame and fortune to arguably one of the most [...]
