A party of six thoroughly impressed by the Hummus Club.

A review split over two visits to the Deja Vu restaurant in Northbridge. One to the rooftop restaurant and one to the Tapas Restaurant. Both trips identified nice drinks, average-to-poor food and decent service.
Two walk-ins during the busy Fringe Festival. We should have kept walking.
Two walk-ins alongside a beautiful sunset at Kailis Trigg Beach.
6 blokes at a somewhat impromptu tour through one of Perth's fine dining destinations, Rockpool Bar & Grill.
Again celebrating Madam Rabbit's birthday, Madam Rabbit, the Walking Inheritance and I fancy-pants it up at Matilda Bay Restaurant.
Madam Rabbit and I check out the Old Crow, recently taken over by new owners.
Madam Rabbit, the Amazonian, the Walking Inheritance and I visit Theo and Co Pizzeria in East South Park (aka. Vic Park) before heading to see Wicked at Crown. How was it? Well it was pizza, so it was awesome, but for pizza, it was just ok.
Dinner on a Monday night at one of the original 'fancy pubs', the Brisbane on Brisbane Street.
The Face on Mars is bad, and left us sad (face) (on Mars).
I know nothing about Rugby, but Madam Rabbit and I had been convinced to accompany Ms. Grey (a Nu Zulander) to watch the World Cup Final at the Sports Bar in Northbridge.
We decided to try out somewhere new for dinner on the way, and for some reason ended up at Romany, on the corner of Aberdeen and Lake Streets. Was it good? No, it wasn't.
Duende sits about a 200m walk away from the main Leedy Cafe strip, and offers some more Leederville-Spanish tapas options. We trundled down for a feed following a WAFL match, and none of us can remember much of it.. this is probably a review you can skip - but, uh, at least the photos are ok?
Ms Foodie and I check out Porky's BBQ and Bar for a quick visit and to get our meatsweats awwwwnn...
This review follows two separate visits to La Cholita about a month apart. Both visits were similarly good and so we've combined them into the one write up. Our two visits included Mr Blue, Madam Rabbit and Ms Foodie. A relaxed Mexican adventure (kind of like the Goonies, I guess, but with more siestas?) ensued.
For our second Perth Food Underground dinner a group of six (Mr Blue, Madam Rabbit, the Irish Hawk, Red Jocks, the Gingham Surprise and the Architect's Daughter) visited Pinchos, a small Spanish tapas joint in Leederville.
I understand that Pinchos used to be some kind of fancy hotdog venue, serving up sausages slightly more dressed up than the Bunning's Special. Now, however, it's something much warmer, much classier, much more worth a visit.
Read on to find out why.
To celebrate my birthday, Mr and Ms Foodie, Madam Rabbit and the Pretty Shit Farmer accompanied me to the Shadow Wine Bar, a fancy'ish restaurant that is attached to the new boutique Hotel Alex on William Street, Northbridge.
We left having been adequately fed and watered, and with one of us wearing more red wine than she drank. It was an ok night, all things considered.
A dinner for 5 at one of Northbridge's flagships, the Old Crow, on Newcastle Street (just a few houses down from another Northbridge favourite, the Tuck Shop). For this visit we had three newcomers to Perth Food Blog, being The Double Pork Belly and Preggers McGee (a couple) and the Pretty Shit Farmer (a sexy third wheel).
How did the Old Crow do? Let's find out..
For the very first Perth Food Underground dinner, a mix of our regulars (that did not know each other previously - which is kind of the point of the PFU Project) hit up the Paddington Ale House for a pre-dinner drink and then the Cabin for an evening of getting-to-know-you food.
The Cabin smashed it - and was able to impress us almost as much as 'the Paddo' didn't.
A group of seven ate at Lalla Rookh as the final warm up for the Perth Underground Dinners, but we actually sat down for the meal over a month ago now and I've just been way behind on writing it up. As a result some of the comments are probably a little bit vague, as they're based on people's scribbled down notes and emails from a few days afterwards. Apologies.
Dinner for two with Madam Rabbit and Mr Blue at Lot 20, one of the kale-serving-topknot-wearing-hyper-hipster small bars that have sprung up in Northbridge of late.
How did it go? It didn't quite reach bad, but it wasn't far off. Read why...
