Entertainment Book Project 2013/2014

I've decided to start a little project this year and it involves eating.  Yes, I'm serious more eating! 

Most of my friends and colleagues and probably your friends and colleagues buy the Entertainment Book every year, and most of the time you don't know if the restaurants are any good, so this year I'm going to review a restaurant listed in either section A, B or C of the Entertainment Book once a week and compile a list of whether they are worth going at all.  I know you get discounts with the Entertainment Book but some restaurants are not worth destroying your taste buds for. 

So please keep following my blog and feel free to suggest which restaurants you want me to try and/or which restaurants I shouldn't try (please think of my taste buds too). 

Thank you and wish me luck!

Mr Munchies Sushi

It's taken me a long time but I finally made it to Mr Munchies Sushi to find out what all the fuss is about.  I've tried to get in once before but they were full and I was too hungry to wait.  This time I thought I'll be organised and book a table but unfortunately they don't take bookings for less than 6 people. Luckily when I arrived a couple of tables had just finished and were on their way out so I scored a table within 5 minutes of arrival. 

The Office on Harrogate

RW is going to be a dad tomorrow so LD and I decided to take him out for lunch to celebrate the fast approaching new chapter of his life.  We decided to check out The Office on Harrogate as we heard from our workmate how amazing their coffee is and how awesome their breakfast looked.

If you don't work or live around the area, you definitely won't know about The Office on Harrogate yet because it  is tucked away in a quiet pocket of West Leederville.  However, I think the locals have all heard about it because when we arrived just after 12:30pm, there was already a long line at the counter with more people rushing in behind us.

Jersey Boys

I was going to give Jersey Boys a miss as no one seemed to be interested in going, but thank goodness LT asked me to go because it was such a spectacular show!  You don't need to know the story beforehand, but you'll definitely know the story after you watch it.  If you like musicals, I recommend you check this one out, but remember, it's only on until 30th June 2013.

The Merrywell

First things first, I just want to tell you that there are not many photos in this blog entry because I didn't want to look too uncool at a pub full of people on a Friday evening, so I apologise for this but one needs to keep up one's image, right?  Maybe?  Anyway...

Tonight, LT and I had a date to see Jersey Boys (it was awesome, go see it!) and we wanted to grab something to eat beforehand.  We thought we'll try our luck at The Merrywell first before venturing off to the other eateries at the Crown Entertainment Complex.  It was packed at The Merrywell, but it was our lucky night because we found a free table!  We were not really hungry but we knew if we didn't eat now, we'll be really hungry during the show.  The lovely LT wanted to order everything on the menu as usual but we managed to limit that to three dishes only.

No 4 Blake St

Happy early birthday to me!  Tonight is my first and only planned birthday celebration this year as I'm trying to forget how old I am.  I chose No 4 Blake St, a restaurant tucked away in the back streets of suburbia because I love trying out new restaurants with my loved ones and I had never been before.  I had no idea whether it was good but the reviews from Urbanspoon seemed quite promising.

Toast

What's my perfect Friday morning? A nice breakfast at a nice cafĂ© at a nice location and not having to rush to work afterwards.  Well, this perfect Friday morning was a semi reality for me this morning.  I know I was going to have a nice breakfast at Toast which overlooks the picturesque canals of East Perth and I didn't have to go to work (I did however have to go to a training course).

Jamie's Italian

Happy birthday hubby!

Hubby and I have wanted to try Jamie's Italian since it first opened but it's taken a good month and a bit before we made it.  Why?  I don't like lining up especially when I'm hungry and there seems to be a constant line outside Jamie's Italian.  When I found out from my workmate that you can book online, I jumped on straight away and booked a month in advance for hubby's birthday.  I think I was more excited about going than hubby, but all the same, we've been looking forward to this for a good month.

Bos Taurus

 I've wanted to try Bos Taurus since it first opened, located where Caffe Martino used to be, it's a welcome change.  Everytime I've walked or driven past Bos Taurus, it lures me to look at this mysterious, dark place and each and everytime I had already been booked elsewhere.  So for our Saturday date night, hubby and I decided to waltz in at 7pm, hoping that we would be able to get a table.  They were not very busy at that time and we were seated quite quickly.
