Monday, April 10, 2006Following my recent layover to Perth, and being told by 3 different people that I have a knack for finding good places to eat, Here's a sample of decent places to go to if you're feeling peckish.
Oriels cafe - (www.orielcafe.com) Open 24 hours, this used to have the best hot chocolate in Perth, but have recently dumped it. God knows why. The staff have all snapped up the suckao sets, so now the only place to get Max Brenner hot chocolate is from David Jones. They do a good affogato though. Hot fudge sundae is pretty good too.
Wagamama - (www.wagamama.com) Located in Subaico, only opened in April. I love the restaurant in Dubai and now Subi have one too. I recommend the Chilli Beef Ramen, cooked medium rare. Very filling and very nice.
Coco's - (www.cocosperth.com) Best breakfast buffet. Made to order unlimited Omlettes. Mmmmm
Farrell's - Vic Park restaurant. Good decent ala-carte breakfasts. Close to my old place too.
Cicerello's - (www.cicerellos.com.au) Fremantle Fish & Chip shop. I don't eat fish but I eat other seafood, and this place kicks the local chippy's arse every time. Portions are pretty huge too. Nice to follow with a Cold Rock ice cream afterwards, should you still have stomach room.
Sugar and Spice - Joondalup bakery, the chef here used to be trained by Gabriel Gate. Amazing cakes (I recommend the Orgasm cake slice) and every time I was in Joondalup for something I'd stop by for a very satisfying sausage roll. They made my 21st birthday cake, and it didn't survive in the house for too long.
Marconi's - Fremantle Italian restaurant. I recommend the Fettucini Pollo, and Darren's favorite is the Lasagne. And any place that serves Coke-cola in glass bottles always has my approval.
Sandrino's - Fremantle pizza specialists. Kris and Coralee recomend pizza no. 10, whereas I recommend the Chili Mussels. Half a kilo for $14.50, and I couldn't finish the bowl.
Il Gelato (www.ilgelato.com.au) - Subaico and Northbridge. No doubt about it, best Gelato in WA. Bacio sundaes are very very good, and you can get alcoholic ones too. :-)
Metro Bar and Bistro - Perth Convention Exhibition Centre. Where I used to work and where Darren currently works. Try the Club Sandwich, Mushroom Risotto, Sirloin Steak, Agnolotti, Barramundi and Warm Chicken Salad. And say hi to Jorg and Lilly whilst you're there. :-) 5 comments
