Pinchos, 749 Newcastle Street, Leederville WA 6007, Phone 9228 3008.
Small plates of delicious food to share … Have been to Pinchos a number of times now and really like anywhere that has share plates as good as these are.
V Burger Bar Floreat Forum, Shop 81/5 Howtree Place, Floreat WA 6014, Phone: 6161 0322.
Refreshingly Different … Decided to try a different burger chain. And, seeing the good reviews we settled on V Burger Bar at Floreat Forum. The place is well decorated, with the decor being very much to my taste. The staff were efficient and very friendly.
Choux Cafe Patisserie Francaise, 93 Shenton Rd, Swanbourne WA 6010, Phone 9385 4227.
Elusive Eclairs … A friend mentioned that I had to go to Choux Café Patisserie Francaise for their éclairs. So off we went to Swanbourne but sadly, they were already sold out by the time we got there. The waitperson explained that Tuesday mornings were a good time to snag an éclair.
Grill’d Claremont Quarter, 23 St Quentin Avenue, Claremont WA 6010, Phone 9384 1084.
It’s all about the Sliders … Grill’d Claremont Quarter is opposite Lucioli. Just outside, in the laneway, near the Koko Black exit. It’s a lot cosier than many of their venues, but small and perfectly formed. It’s also decorated with their traditional industrial, trashy chic. They’ve added a funky mural to the entire back wall. Nice.
Engine Room Espresso, 450C Fitzgerald St, North Perth WA 6006, Phone 0420 703 419.
Delightful … Engine Room is a small and cosy café opposite the Rosemount Hotel on Fitzgerald Street. The décor is part industrial, part trashy chic. Decor includes distressed cement floors, exposed ceilings and eclectic furniture.There is a tiny but swish outdoor courtyard.
Crown Metropol Lobby Lounge, Great Eastern Hwy, Burswood WA 6100, Phone 9362 7551.
High Tea … When we were being highfalutin and dining at Rockpool this week we noticed that the Crown Metropol Lobby Lounge had started serving high tea. We booked, which is mandatory apparently, and went along with high expectations.
