Healthy Options @ Vans Cafe, Cottesloe, W.A.


When organising a venue for a meeting with an interstate colleague, I decided to branch out of my usual coffee favourites and suggest somewhere new. We wanted to be near the beach but somewhere that would be quiet enough to discuss work. Vans Cafe in Cottesloe seemed to fit the bill after reading online reviews,…

I’ve been food blogging since 2011 and this is my first post on one of my birthday dinners! I have a knack of heading to my favourite restaurants on my birthday (or heading overseas!) but this year, I tried a new venue – Bib & Tucker at Leighton Beach. Before A and I moved to…

Support Local Produce @ Tropico, North Beach, W.A.


If you’ve been reading PFJ/CFJ for a while, you will know that I love supporting local produce and their producers. The second best thing to this is supporting eateries who support local businesses, as it seems silly to import products when Western Australia has an abundance of amazing produce available. Tropico in North Beach not…

Great Nasi Lemak @ PappaRich, Northbridge, W.A.

Nasi lemak 2 @ PappaRich

While A and I were living in Canberra, PappaRich opened an outlet in the Canberra Centre and it was constantly busy. We dined there twice during our time in Canberra and after the first time, I wasn’t impressed. The second time was marginally better, but I was still unsure of the hype. While I was…

When A and I found out we were moving back to Perth, we started discussing eateries that we would want to visit or revisit when we returned. Top of the list for both of us was Lalla Rookh, which has been raved about by friends, other bloggers and by the media. When Cyn (AKA The Food…

Fast Paced but Delicious @ Brika, Northbridge, W.A.

Halva cheesecake

A and I love Greek food and when we stumbled upon Brika’s great reviews on Urbanspoon, we decided it would be a perfect venue for a Saturday night dinner. The dishes at Brika are designed to be shared, in the Greek style of meze. We ordered our dishes all at once, and the first to…

Dragon Rolls & Corn Tempura @ Aisuru Sushi, Subiaco, W.A.


When A and I arrived back in Perth, we stayed in temporary accommodation in Subiaco for a few weeks. After a chaotic move, it took us a little while to get back into cooking at home but luckily, there were a variety of eateries within walking distance. When Aisuru Sushi in Nortbridge opened up a…

On one of these occasions, we made our way to Treehouse in the Sydney Building, located on Northbourne Ave to partake in their $9 lunch menu, available Wednesday to Friday from 12pm. The selection of $9 lunches were…
