Hikaru, St Martins Centre, 50 St Georges Terrace, Perth, Phone 9225 5700.
Shine, Shine On … Stumbled across Hikaru in St Martins Centre by chance. Of course, I was foraging for food and this brief encounter proved to be a lucky break.
Tan Po Po Japanese Tea House, 623 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley, Phone 9328 8313.
No Frills, Simple Home Cooked Fare … Was pointed at this little Tea House on Beaufort Street and pushed in their direction. A friend said if you want tasty Japanese at a good price then try Tan Po Po. So I did.
Sushi WAWA, 8A Sunray Drive, Innaloo WA 6018, Phone 9445 1894.

Tsuke Ba, Shop 3 / 139-141 Oxford Street, Leederville WA 6007, Phone 9201 0800.
Gyoza … Finally tried Tsuke Ba’s gyoza, after walking past the shop for months and never stopping. Picked up a pack of 4 seafood gyoza (dumplings) to take home and was impressed with the $4.50 price tag. The dumplings contained mashed prawns, water chestnuts and fresh herbs with a distinct garlicky taste and a dipping sauce. They were light and very fresh tasting.
Tak’E Sushi, Shop 14a, Dianella Plaza Shopping Centre, Corner Alexander Drive and Grand Promenade, Dianella WA 6059, Phone 9275 5882.
Hidden Treasure in Dianella … Have been going to Tak’E Sushi for five years now and haven’t had a bad meal. They are takeaway only, the place is teeny tiny and it pays to phone your order in. But, the staff are always friendly, the food is always fresh and tasty and if that means waiting, I wait.
