Thai Spice on Oxford, 135 Oxford Street, Leederville WA 6007, Phone 444 0321.
Adieu Giardini Cafe … And, hello Thai Spice on Oxford. Used to frequent Giardini Café quite a bit. In it’s heyday it was a vibrant place. Saying that, was very excited to see Thai Spice on Oxford arrive on the strip. Was even more excited when I found the Restaurant open for lunch on Saturday.
Curry Thieves, 47A / 366 Grand Promenade, Dianella Plaza WA 6059, Phone 9275 4622.
Thieves Like Us … It was a Video Store. Then it was going to be an Italian Restaurant for a long time but that never happened. Then overnight, it was turned into a tribute to the Dianella Community. And, that’s only in the last five or so years. The space is now home to Curry Thieves, Dianella’s first Indian Restaurant and Take Away. And it snuck up on us.
Five Bar, 560 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley WA 6050, Phone 9227 5200.
Laid Back … These two little words would be a good way to describe Five Bar in Mount Lawley. It is a comfortable environment and the welcome on entering the bar is five star. From the crew who brought us 399 Bar in Northbridge.
Mrs S Highgate, 487 Beaufort Street, Highgate WA 6003, Phone 9228 9999.
Hit the Road Jack … Fronted up to Side Door BBQ in Highgate. But it was not my lucky day as their BBQ Chicken was still a long way from completion. Not a problem really but a little sad that there was to be no BBQ for me.
Stupidly Happy … Something good happens when a café doesn’t have signage and goes by word of mouth. Pixel Coffee Brewers sits on Oxford Street opposite The Re Store. It really is one of the smallest cafes I’ve come across. But it’s producing big things.
Delisio Pizza Romana, ENEX100, 683-703 Hay Street Mall, Perth WA 6000, Phone 9485 0055.
Save Me From Myself … Looking for Lunch in the CBD. Wandering around ENEX100 and nothing appealed. Noticed a really long line of people and, out of curiosity, joined the queue. Welcome to lunch time’s hidden haunt. Pizza by the Slice and some authentic home cooked Pasta at Delisio Pizza Romana.
A Passion for BBQ … Porkies BBQ in Bayswater had me at hello. The space is decorated with outdoor furniture, the napkins are red with white checks and the food is cooked on a BBQ. Seems like we’d accidentally stepped into someone’s backyard and they were cooking up some great smelling food.
Maylands Street Festival 2016, Sunday 1st May 2016, Whatley Crescent and Eighth Avenue, Maylands, Noon to 7.00pm.
A Flying Visit … Decided to put up a brief review of the Maylands Street Festival 2016. We had arrived late to the party but it was still in full swing at 5.00pm. There was food, entertainment and activities on offer on both sides of the Railway Tracks.
