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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
The Thursday night before the Easter Long weekend Madam Rabbit and I visited a quaint Italian joint on the edge of Vic Park with three newcomers to Perth Food Blog, the Quizman, the Bay City Rollergirl and Dr Clarion & Mr Globe.
This Easter Sunday, a party of 10 (a mix of some oldies and some newbies) visit the Monk Brewery on the Cafe Strip in Fremantle. Not quite searching for inner solace so much as beer, we discovered a monastery that deserves a second visit.. and a third.. and a fourth..
One of our regular groups, the Architect's Daughter (and her new beau, the Gingham Surprise), Tom-a-hawk, Divine Brown, Madam Rabbit and I, visit Circa in Mount Lawley for a Friday evening dinner.
Lunch / Dinner in the West End of Freo. Good food, terrible prices.
