Ace Pizza

Tonight was our last chance to catch up before we all go off on holidays.  JL and her hubby are off to Japan, ML and Jae (he is also a JL so to reduce confusion I'm going to refer to him as Jae) are off to Europe and hubby and I are off to the states so we won't see each other until December.  JL and I wanted to try Ace Pizzas so we decided to go there for our catch up dinner but we weren't able to secure a table until 8pm.

Hangout Bar N Cafe

My second breakfast today was with MK, SS, RC and PL at the Hangout Bar N Cafe.  It's located on the commercial strip of Preston St in Como and it was not only easy to find the cafe, it was easy to find parking.  Yay!

I was the last one to arrive so I weaved my way in without the waitstaff noticing.  It took a while to make up our mind and also a while to get a wait staff to take our order.

L'Enoteca

Tonight was my monthly catch up dinner with DT.  I chose L'Enoteca for our catch up dinner because I've been wanting to go for a while and the reviews on Urbanspoon were mostly positive.

I managed to book a table for the two of us on a Saturday night and was given the option of 5:30pm or 8:30pm; I chose 5:30pm and was informed that we had to vacate the table at 7:30pm, which was fine.  I prefer that they tell me at the time of booking rather than when I arrive at the restaurant (which has occurred before at other places!).

Apple Daily Bar & Eating House

After hubby picked me up from my Friday night drinks with my workmates, we decided to head down to Apple Daily Bar & Eating House.  I've actually not been to Apple Daily before but have heard good things about it and wanted to go there for a taste test.  As you can't book, we thought we'll try our luck, and at 6:30pm we thought the chances of getting a table was quite high.  As usual on a Friday night there was a line to get into Print Hall but I was pretty sure we didn't need to line up to get into Apple Daily so asked one of the security guys and he directed us to the entrance on the left hand side.  We walked up the stairs and as there wasn't any clear signage I just kept walking up the stairs and ended up at Bob's Bar, whoops, but was directed back down one level to Apple Daily by a friendly staff member.

Croissant x Donut = Cronut™

I had my first imitation Cronut today and to be honest it was unexciting.  The icing was too sweet, it was a bit oily and quite heavy.  I had it cold, well room temperature, but I presume like its parents the croissant and donut it would've been better warm.  Special thanks to my brother who decided he wanted to try this croissant-donut hybrid when we drove past Lawley's Bakery in Mount Lawley and jumped out of the car to get us one each.  At $3 each, it was worth it for the novelty but I won't be having another one.

Cori Anna Korean Restaurant

It's been a bit hectic at work lately and all I wanted to do this Friday night was go for a walk around the city, eat, go home and lounge around; I did exactly just that.  Hubby and I walked around the city after work and we decided to eat something quick and simple before we head home to do not much.  We walked aimlessly up William Street, saw Cori Anna Korean Restaurant across the road and decided to go in.  I felt like kimchi soup.
The restaurant is your typical dingy Asian restaurant.  Bad lighting and décor, sticky floors and tables, what more can you ask for?  We were greeted by a friendly waiter who took us to our seats and gave us some menus.  I already knew what I wanted!

Guzman y Gomez

Guzman y Gomez (GYG) is one of the many Mexican food places that has opened in Perth in the last year or two.  I've been meaning to check it out since it first opened but honestly I'm not a huge fan of Mexican fast food so it took a long time before I walked through the door.  Tonight presented a perfect opportunity to go because hubby and I were in Northbridge and needed to eat something quickly before our appointment.  At 5:30pm, there were few customers but that didn't matter because it meant I can take photos without worrying about disturbing other patrons and that our food should come out relatively quickly (well, it is fast food after all).

E Cucina Wine Bar and Restaurant

It's been a while since I last reviewed a restaurant listed in the Entertainment Book so this Saturday date night took us to E Cucina Wine Bar and Restaurant which is listed in the fine and contemporary dining section of the Entertainment Book. 

Hubby rang E Cucina at 6:45pm to book a table for 7:30pm (yes, a bit last minute) and luckily, we were able to get a table.  It was quite a chilly night and the streets were quite bare and so was E Cucina when we arrived.  We were attended to quickly and were asked to choose where we wanted to sit.
