A LONG WEEKEND IN MARGARET RIVER – NOVEMBER 2019

January 4, 2020

I’m sure most people know about our renowned wine region, down south as we call it. Famed not only for its wines but food offerings and great surf. For those who don’t, it’s a good 3.5 hours drive south of Perth where you pass other beautiful holiday, eating and drinking towns such as Busselton, Dunsborough and Yallingup in our southwest.

I’m sure that if you Google Margaret River or WA’s southwest region, it will give you a wealth of information on what you can do, places of interest, wineries, breweries, eateries and must do tips. Not to mention, there are a host of cheese, chocolates, olive oil and arts and craft delights to fill your days too. Continue Reading…

Blue Manna Bistro, Dunsborough – June 2019

July 18, 2019

This place sprung up a few years ago in the heart of Dunsborough where it quickly earned the reputation as a place to try. We had missed trying this place until now, visiting friends who live in Dunsborough. The reason is, it is predominately seafood and my husband is not really a fan of going to seafood restaurants. Whilst I would go to good seafood restaurants at a drop of a hat due to the fact that there really isn’t many, if really any good seafood restaurants around any more…..(please, I would welcome any recommendations).

Nunzio’s – May 2019 and other occasions

June 30, 2019

If you grew up or worked in Fremantle, you would know about Nunzio. My first memories of Nunzio was his very popular coffee establish on the corner of South Terrace and Collie Street in the heart of Fremantle 20+ years ago. This place seemed to be the hub of all the Freo community any time of the day from early morning to the early hours of the weekend. It was a constant hub of activity not only for coffee drinkers but a meeting place for all walks of life. Continue Reading…

Amore Floreat February 2019

March 17, 2019

I met a lovely gentleman at a function who shared my love for red wine. And since he enjoyed his red wine, I quizzed him on whether he has the same liking for food. In my encounters, people who enjoyed red wine as much as I do also really like their food too. So, with conversations about the wines we both liked to enjoy, he recommended his neighbourhood eatery that I must try. Continue Reading…

Shy John Brewery and Yum Cha November 2018

November 24, 2018

Most Asians love dim sum or yum cha. Being Asian, I crave dim sum all the time. For me, it’s about the being able to enjoy many morsels of different dishes at one meal. To be honest, the dishes are pretty much the same, no matter if you go to the finest establishment or to the cheap and cheerful. The price range can be extensive and they can range from frozen re-heated to expertly handmade. Shy John sits somewhere closer to the expertly handmade. Continue Reading…

Santini Bar and Grill October 2018

October 23, 2018

So, the much-anticipated QT Hotel in Perth opens. Everyone is talking about how cool this place is, the décor, the dynamic nature of their concept, their staff and what they offer to the hospitality scene in Perth. The commentary also bang on about the new Italian restaurant that is going to hit Perth right between the eyes. Continue Reading…

Wildflower September 2018

September 7, 2018

This is not your everyday place to dine…..however, if I had my way, I’d dine there once a week! We had dined previously on a couple of other occasions for lunch and dinner and have thoroughly enjoyed our experiences. As they change their menus regularly, and I believe their chefs since then, it is nice to enjoy their different menus and culinary talents of their different chefs. Continue Reading…

Hampton and Maley September 2018

September 4, 2018

You would not expect any less from the genius couple that was Amuse. When they decided to close Amuse because they’d decided to have a bit of work life balance, we were a little gutted as we went there for a few years in a row for our birthdays or anniversary (they were all in the same month). However, you do not expect an exceptional restaurant to keep their doors open for you for your once in a year celebrations. Continue Reading…

Chu Bakery August 2018

August 31, 2018

This place is not a restaurant however it deserves a mention. We’ve heard so much about this place and now we’ve sampled, we want to tell everyone about it! As per usual, I’ve read about it and just had to venture out there when one of my colleagues mentioned he had a craving for éclairs. Continue Reading…
