After a lovely scenic drive through lush greenery, vineyards galore and the occasional threat of rain, we were hungry and desperately needed to make a decision on where to eat lunch. I think I will forever find this decision difficult, partly because I’m indecisive but also because I live in an incredible part of the world full of so much deliciousness which I wholeheartedly intend on eating my way through, more than once.
A night out in Busselton meant one thing, I was finally going to experience dinner at Laundry 43. This place had been on my list for quite some time and over the years it had been open I had only heard good things, I just never managed to get there. So, you could say I was pretty excited to have the opportunity to see if it was as good as the hype. Laundry 43 is located in Prince St (number 43) in Busselton and this unassuming building was originally the iconic Busselton Dry-Cleaners, hence the name. Inside, you are transported to a bar and restaurant that exudes a modern and trendy but also quirky and cosy vibe. The venue is dotted with memories of its dry-cleaning past, clothes hanging from the exposed ceiling, the red brick wall and posters reminding you of its history.
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.
