El Grotto, 5 / 148 The Esplanade, Scarborough.
Andale! Arriba! … Which just means “hurry up” or “get going”. If ever there was somewhere to get you going it would be El Grotto a Mexican Taqueria and Bar on the Beach.
Brika, 3 / 177 Stirling Street, Perth, Phone 0455 321 321.
A little Slice Of Greece … Brika is a Greek Bar and Restaurant. In fact they are the first Meze Bar to open in Perth. Meze is the Greek version of Tapas and the White Washed walls and exposed timber rafters make you feel you could be in Santorini.
Pinchos Tapas Bar Restaurant, Revisit, 749 Newcastle Street, Leederville WA 6007, Phone 9228 3008.
Down on the Corner … Out in the Street. Pinchos has expanded into the building next door and the venue now has a presence on Oxford Street. Some of that has to do with the large Pan of Paella cooking on the pavement. But mostly it’s because the space is now right on the Corner.
Dainty Dowager, 564 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley WA 6050, Phone 9328 9728.
A Dainty Little Sister … The Dainty Dowager is the sister restaurant to Leederville’s Low Key Chow House. It’s been on my wish list for a while now so we headed there for lunch.
La Cholita, 279 William Street, Northbridge WA 6003.
Phone: 9227 9238.
Tacos … Ah, a lovely lunch at La Cholita’s today with friends. There is something wonderful about being able to order small plates of delicious food. Rather than the tough decision of one large plate that you may not like. And, the Restaurant is doing small plates of delicious food well. Especially on the weekends, when they’re open for lunch.
Bob’s Bar, Print Hall, Brookfield Place, 125 St Georges Terrace, Perth Wa 6000, Phone 6282 0077.
Dumplings and Cava … What I like about Bob’s Bar most is that it’s named after Bob Hawke. Not because I’m a fan but because if ever there was a larrikin that deserved a bar named after him it’s BH. The walls are lined with quotes from the man himself. “Any boss who sacks anyone for not turning up today is a bum.” Etc.
