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.
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.
Madam Rabbit, Ms. Grey and I braved the queues at the Mary Street Bakery on a Sunday morning for brunch. Was it worth the hype?
Madam Rabbit, the Artist Formerly Known as Pregbot, Mr Macaron and the Prince of Margs hit up the Old Laundry for a sunny late lunch. Would recommend.
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.
Lately Madam Rabbit, Ms. Grey and I have been trying out hands at Northbridge Yoga on Sunday mornings. It's ok. There's lots of bending and stretching and that bit's fine, but then sometimes they make you chant 'Ommmm' and I'm not into that bit so much. Also it's early in the morning and often I'm hungover at that time. So, in lieu of yoga one Sunday morning, we went out for greasy breakfast instead. Less stretching, less weird chanting, also less yoga pants but overall I think a fair trade.
Of our recent Mary Street Bakery doughnut tour, the Lamington was the group's favourite. A twist on an Australian classic, the coconut / cake / chocolate flavours combined wonderfully. It's worth pointing out this is not a typical doughnut consistency but more of a heavier, cakier version, it's definitely worth a try.
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?
Read about our thoughts on 'the Bachelor' doughnut, the Pistachio and Rose Water from the Mary Street Bakery.
Although the diaries have slowed, our donut consumption has remained steady. Check out our thoughts on the first of four Mary Street Bakery donut reviews: the Salted Caramel.
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.
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:
- a retail store for 'Chapels Fine Teas';
- the Chapels Cafe; and
- 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.
