Consistently Good … Funnily enough I used to dine at Blake’s Café when it was a humble brunch place. It became a degustation place after a change of ownership and got a little too rich for my blood. I believe the café has closed now.
Vesuvio Hand Made Pasta and Pastries, 1 / 20 Exchange Road, Malaga WA 6070, Phone 9248 1777.
Rage Against The Machine … Vesuvio hand make all their Pasta and Pastries. They are often asked why they don’t use Machines. They say they’re happy to do it all by hand because their customers enjoy the food so much.
Sizzler Morley, 131 Walter Road West, Morley WA 6062, Phone 9276 2000.
Fawlty Towers … It had been a terrible day. Not only was there a huge thunderstorm but the car broke down on Karrinyup Road. We had gotten stuck in a traffic jam and the alternator just stopped working. Some International Golf Tournament had caused the jam. Luckily the RAC chap who came to take a look stopped for 20 mins to give us enough power to get home. And, we made it home.
Miss Maud Pastry House, Perth CBD, 97 Murray Street, Perth WA 6000, Phone 9325 3900.
Since 1971 … Miss Maud is a Perth tradition. Established by Maud Edmiston, an immigrant from Sweden, who wanted nothing more than to cook for Perth. And, to introduce Swedish food to a new audience. Her success today is the culmination of years of hard work on her part. In 2011 Maud celebrated 40 years of trading and over 16 venues to her name. They seem to have been a part of my early life and family celebrations for a long time.

Hainanese Chicken Rice … There’s a new café at the Coventry Village Markets in Morley. Singapore Chicken Rice is a small, neat and clean café that serves Singaporean Hawker Food. Love the blue chairs, they stand out and the colour is very attractive.

Comida do Sul, Location Varies, Phone 0405 967 469.
Coxinha … Caught up with Comida do Sul at the Maylands Hawkers Market and finally tried a Coxinha. Such great flavours, a pear shaped croquette with creamy mashed potato, a super crunchy coating and shredded chicken right in the centre. Awesome.
