Taste Test - Toastface Grillah

Hubby is back this week and we decided to go on an eating expedition this weekend. I've been wanting to go to Toastface Grillah since they opened last year but it just didn't happen until this weekend so needless to say I was very excited when I stepped into this tiny eatery hidden in the back alleyway with their menu written on a chalk board door.

At 1pm on a Saturday afternoon, Toastface Grillah was pretty quiet which I found quite nice; it was a little haven from the hustle and bustle of the city only an alleyway away.

Taste Test - Cantina 663: An unexpected experience

I have always been a fan of the food at Cantina 663 however service can sometimes be a bit hit and miss. Last night I went there with my workmates and I wasn't going to blog about it but we had a bit of an issue so thought I would share the experience.

Taste Test - Francoforte Spaghetti Bar

Wednesday night out with the pregnant ones and I suggested we check out Francoforte Spaghetti Bar in Northbridge, a place I've walked past a few times and still found interesting. On a Wednesday night at 6pm, there were already other patrons having dinner. We weren't early enough to get our own table and had to sit at the communal table which was fine as we were sat on one end with a couple sat on the other end. DT and RN were already there and had decided on what they wanted and as they are both pregnant we couldn't order the antipasto plate so settled on ordering four small pastas instead.

Taste Test - Big El's Latin American Fusion

Tonight was my monthly catch up session with JL, Jae and ML, as usual JL was responsible for choosing where to eat and decided on Big El's Latin American Fusion which is located where Sake Bar used to be in Northbridge. 

When I walked in, I didn't get much of a greeting but I was shown to my seat where Jae and ML were already seated and had already chosen what they wanted so it was up to JL and I to quickly choose our dishes...we were hungry! We decided to only order 6 dishes because we were unsure how big the servings were and could always order more if we needed to.

Taste Test - Jackson's Restaurant

Happy belated Valentine's Day! You might have noticed that hubby hasn't featured in my blog posts recently, that's because he has started FIFO again and that he wasn't here for Valentine's Day (not that we usually celebrate) but it was a good excuse to go out for a nice dinner.

Jackson's Restaurant introduced Western Australia to degustation in 1998 when it was first established by chef Neal Jackson who is hanging up his apron in April this year. In September 2013, they ditched their degustation menu for an a-la-carte menu but it didn't seem to be well received and from January 2014 they resurrected their degustation menu. The five course degustation menu is $111 per person and if you want to enhance your experience with wine matching, add an extra $69 per person.
