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.
Hangout On 20 Preston, 20 Preston Street, Como WA 6152, Phone 9474 1914.
Is Preston St the New Orange? … Pretty sure the last time I was in Como there wasn’t really a Strip. But on my way from the car to Hangout on 20 Preston I counted a good 7 or 8 Cafes. Also, there are a couple of High Rise Apartment Buildings going up nearby, so I imagine that will attract even more Cafes.
Asian Tapas … Heard through the grapevine that the Adelphi Grill at the Parmelia Hilton had had yet another revamp. The place has changed 3 times in the last few years. It now has a huge Bar with windows overlooking Mill Street. And, a pavement dining area with big umbrellas.
