Pinelli Estate Wines, 30 Bennett Street, off Benara Road, Caversham, Phone 9279 6818.
Don’t Want To Tarantella … But I do want to eat some Italian food at Pinelli Estate. At one point a French chef operated Fillaudeau’s Restaurant but now the menu is strictly Italian.
The Local Northbridge, 197 Brisbane Street, Northbridge, Phone 0448 555 583.

Fika On Brix, 86 Brixton Street, Beckenham, Phone 6369 1213.

Wakaranai … Translates to I don’t know. But here’s what I do know, I caught a plane, then took a train and ended up in Asagaya Tokyo. Joyously eating the best ramen I’ve ever had at Ramen CiQUE.
Lavender Bistro & Boutique, 6 Cranleigh Street, Off West Swan Street, West Swan, Phone 9250 7711.
Purple Haze … Lavender Bistro sits in a bush setting behind the Margaret River Chocolate Company. The smell of lavender as you walk in the door is very appealing, as is the clean, streamlined venue.
