Lady of Ro: Always bring wine for the recently-pregnant

On a rainy Friday afternoon, Mr Blue and the Artist Formerly Known as Ms Pregbot, along with Ms Pregbot's new young son and first time reviewer, the Prince of Margs (note: we were initially going to go with 'Vomit Machine', but decided that might have unintended implications for a Food Blog), check out a new cafe with a bit of buzz on Rokeby Road, the Lady of Ro. 

Only a short visit, we were keen to see what the buzz was about.  Find out below.

La Cholita: Where I Wanna Meet Ya

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.

Pinchos: Pinch Me

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.

Chapels on Whatley: A perfect setting for your next oriental tea party

A Sunday brunch with Marmite, Midnight Oil, Ms Grey, Madam Rabbit and I at Chapels on Whatley, a quaint and somewhat oddball cafe in the curious suburb of Maylands. 

Chapels describes itself on its website as the sum of three separate components: 

  1. a retail store for 'Chapels Fine Teas'; 
  2. the Chapels Cafe; and
  3. an Antiques and Artifacts Emporium. 

I'm staggered to realise this only now, but we limited ourselves to the Cafe and did not check out the Emporium.  Perhaps next time.

Shadow Wine Bar: The Incident Report

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.

The Old Crow: [Jon Snow joke goes here]

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..

The Cabin: Arguably Ron Swanson's Favourite Small Bar

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.

Lot 20: Needed lots lots more..

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...
