Moving down to Margaret River I was pretty eager to discover any and all of the food experiences the region had to offer but also knowing it may not be quite as exciting or varied, as the hundreds of options in Perth. Finding out about a brewery, showcasing a pop up winery, offering an Indonesian inspired degustation menu with matching wines for $80 a head was exactly what I was hoping for.
After a few enjoyable visits, The Standard in Northbridge often comes to mind when I’m asked for suggestions in the CBD/Northbridge area, somewhere cool but casual with yummy share style food. On this particular mid week evening, with a group of girls and a few glasses of wine, it certainly ticked lots of boxes.
There’s going out for dinner and then there’s going out for a 3 course dinner over 3 venues with a rickshaw as your mode of transport. The Leederville Food Safari takes in Kitsch Bar Asia, Ria Malay Kitchen and Foam coffee bar over 3 hours with entree, main and dessert. The order of venues and start times vary slightly to fit in more bookings (the first time we tried to book they were booked out!). Definitely book early to avoid disappointment.
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!
