Romany: Somany reasons not to return

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: No idea how to pronounce it, let's call it Dewey for short

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?

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.

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.

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..

Eagle Bay Brewery: A place so pretty it should be ill-eagle (get it?)

We are now stretching the limits of 'Perth' food, but during the ANZAC Long Weekend Mr. and Ms Foodie, Marmite and Midnight Oil, Madam Rabbit and Mr Blue (i.e. moi) spent a glorious Saturday at the Eagle Bay Brewery (unsurprisingly located in Eagle Bay, just past Dunsborough). It was good. Real good. Bette Midler wind beneath my wings type good.

St Michael: What is this?! A Restaurant for ANTS?!

Our first real 'group' booking, and a test run for the Perth Food Underground dinners, a group of 12 PFB'ers hit up St Michael 6003 in Highgate.  Big food. Tiny plates. Big table. Not-tiny bill.

Crown Metropol: Room Service Never Tasted So Overpriced

Originally planning to visit the Merrywell, Madam Rabbit, the Artsy Patriot, Princess M and Mistress Ford decided to stay in and try out the Crown Metropol's room service. It appears the King's best cuts were going somewhere else, as while the Crown charges Camelot prices it served us some Harrenhal meals.

Big Els: Meh, I've had bigger..

To celebrate the return of Mr and Ms Foodie (from an 8 week American/South American odyssey) and to mourn the departure of Rose Gold and the Rose Gold BF Experience (they are leaving to live in the UK for 12 months), what has been the standard group of 8 visited Big Els Latin American Fusion in Northbridge. Overall I think we'd probably agree it was more of a 'Medium Sized Els' experience
