There’s been a lot of change in Bunbury in recent times, which is not only great for visiting tourists but also for locals in this lovely coastal town, bringing more opportunities for a nice night out. Sala Wine Lounge, from the talented Jason Casella and team, delivers, with an intimate wine bar that is cosy and inviting.
The Globe opened back in January in the vibrant 140 precinct in the city and although I got to sample some of their bar food with a drink before a Fringe show in February, I was hanging out to go back for dinner in the Eatery. The Globe comprises of a Bar, Lane and Eatery in a beautiful building that was built in the 1880s during the gold rush and has certainly had a few different lives since then.
With all the hype surrounding the opening of The Reveley at Elizabeth Quay, joint venture between The Stables Bar and Brockwell Hotel Group (Rosie O’Grady’s, The Boheme and The Globe Bar and Eatery), expectations were high when some friends and I went for dinner on Friday night, however I was prepared for some teething problems being their second night of service.
One word, dumplings! I just love them and definitely don’t get to eat to them enough, so I was really looking forward to checking out Miss Chows in the Claremont Quarter. It had been a while since I had been to the Claremont Quarter and for a shopping centre it sure is a lovely place to have dinner (or a great lunch in between shopping), it’s certainly no food court!
It’s pretty easy to get excited about a restaurant, located beachfront in this great state of ours, and when it comes from some of Perth’s elite in the restaurant game (The Trustee, Enrique’s School for Bullfighting and the Beaufort Local) expectations start high. This casual chic, Swanbourne beauty had been on my list since reopening as The Shorehouse, so I was looking forward to lunching here on one of our perfect sunny Autumn days.
