399 Bar, 399 William Street, Perth WA 6000, Phone 0417 388 257.
Whisky sour … On my first trip to Asia, in the Kuala Lumpur Hilton Hotel, the bartender made me a Whisky Sour. Saying that it would change my life and I would always remember my first one. Well, he may have been wrong about the life changing thing. But he was certainly right about the drink being memorable.
Mechanics Institute Bar, 222 William Street, (Access Via Rear Laneway), Northbridge WA 6003, Phone 8228 4189.
Bohemian Hideaway … Walking back to our car down a Laneway in Northbridge we stumbled upon the Mechanics Institute Bar. A little excited we rushed up a flight of fire escape stairs. At the top we found a decked area overlooking Northbridge roof tops. There was also the brick building which incorporated the actual “Bar”.
Cocktail Gastronomy, 452 Newcastle Street, West Perth WA 6005, Phone 0428 823 569.
Pop Up Bar … Took a lovely break from the crowds at the Food Truck Rumble. And sat quietly sipping a Lychee Mojito in the Popup Bar. They were playing music and the actual cocktail making was a little bit of a show in itself.
What The Flip, Location Varies, Phone 0407 021 485.
Crepes & crowds … Was great to catch up with What The Flip at the 2015 Food Truck Rumble. We went early to try to avoid the crowd and did for a short while. But the crowds, when they came, where like a deluge. Filling up queues faster than a thunder storm fills up a bucket.
Caviar Catering and Kitchen, 32 Kennard Street, Kensington WA 6151, Phone 9367 7691.
Chicken, Leek & Gruyere Pie … There was definitely something different about this pie. I spied it sitting in its cute Caviar Catering take away container, it was a small pie but it had height. Unusually high but couldn’t wait to try it.
Mixed Feelings … Firstly, let me just say that Jayleas Patisserie is miles from my home, miles and miles. But I had read the rave reviews for their pies and had to make the journey to see for myself. And, secondly, I don’t eat pies all the time, just occasionally. It seems I write about them a lot though.
