Social Media

I'm finally embracing social media and am now on Twitter and Instagram.  Please follow me by clicking the badges at the bottom of my home page or right now on this page!  I have also added my Instagram feed to my blog thanks to SnapWidget.  I'm so excited!  All I need to do now is to start using all these things.  Wish me luck.

Rochelle Adonis Cakes + Confectionary

High tea on a Saturday morning, what a great way to start the weekend albeit 10am is not the usual time for high tea.  It was a pretty dreary Saturday morning actually, as it was grey and rainy but going to Rochelle Adonis Cakes + Confectionary with DT made up for the weather.  I haven't been to the Highgate shop before, only the Northbridge one and I remember how snobby the staff were but I have to say she does serve a fantastic high tea.  I just hoped that the service would be better this time round but with the same tasty high tea.

CoCo's Rant

Sticky Date & Macadamia Bombe Alaska $19
I wasn't going to blog about CoCo's but I was so appalled by their service that I had to have a rant!  To be honest I have never rated CoCo's very high, purely based on the fact that they are pretentious at best and the food ain't that great - tonight was no different, the only difference was the level of rudeness.

After our ordinary dinner at Ciao Italia, we decided to have dessert elsewhere, so we headed down to CoCo's because it was close by and there wasn't much other choice.  When we arrived at the entrance, a man who we thought was the manager looked at us from the inside as we signalled to him from the outside that we have four people.  He didn't even have the courtesy to come out and greet us.

Ciao Italia

My friends told me that I'm probably the only Asian in Perth that hasn't been to Ciao Italia so they decided to take me there for our Wednesday night catch up dinner.  In my defence, I don't particularly like going to places where I can't book and I know I have to wait and possibly for a very long time.  To reduce waiting time, we decided to turn up straight after work at 5pm as surely we won't have to wait at that time.  Wrong!  MK and I had to wait because they don't give you a table unless all your guests have arrived.  This annoyed me especially since we told them they were no more than 5 minutes away but their response was "We may be full by then." Really?  Well, not really because they were still pretty empty 5 minutes later when FH and TW arrived.  Nevertheless, I was excited because this long anticipated visit has taken at least 10 years to become a reality.

Run Amuk Hotdogs Unleashed

I've been wanting to taste test Run Amuk Hotdogs Unleashed since I first heard about it from my workmate RW and today I finally made it there with my hubby.  Located outside the main drag, I didn't know about this part of Fremantle as I usually hang around the main strip or the fishing boat harbour, but I'm glad to say we'll be visiting this part more often as I discovered there are quite a few restaurants and cafes around there.

Pure Bar

After our Friday night drinks, a few of us decided to have dinner before we head off to our other Friday night activities, or non-activities in my case.  As there wasn't too much choice around the area, we headed down to Pure Bar where I've been a couple of times before for lunch.  However, I've never had dinner there before so I didn't know what to expect, but if the quality was as good as lunch, I'd be happy.

Sake Bar

The last time I went to Sake Bar was at least 6 months ago.  I've been there a few times before and each time it's a bit hit and miss with both food and service.  Tonight I decided to venture back there for my Entertainment Book project and actually write a review.

As we approached the entrance to Sake Bar, we were greeted by the maĆ®tre d' who quickly showed us to a table.  At 6:30pm on a Friday night, they were pretty quiet - only a table of 6 girls and another table at the bar occupied by a single man.

V Burger Bar

I love a good burger now and then, and tonight was one of those nights.  This Saturday date night took us to V Burger which is located in the Vic Park Village which of course, is in Victoria Park.  I have only been there a couple of times before and that was quite a long time ago but I was hoping that it was still as good as I remembered.

Sushia Izakaya and Bar

Tonight we celebrated LD's last week in Perth before she goes off to Europe and USA for 3 months, how exciting!  We decided to try out the new kid on the block, Sushia which is run by three of the ex-Nobu chefs and has only been open for about a month.
