Originally appearing as a pop up restaurant in 2014, Piggy Food Co soon made a permanent home on the bustling North Fremantle strip. The small bar has a Southern Californian food offering, featuring the type of easy to eat comfort food that’s found right on the border of the US and Mexico. Here, it’s ok to make a piggy of yourself. Cutlery is optional, but napkins are absolutely essential!

Piggy Food Co is the epitome of Freo chill. We’re given a warm welcome and encouraged to sit wherever we like. We can grab a high table in the industrial-style bar adorned with unique piggy artworks. Or sit out in the beer garden, surrounded by green succulents and shaded with umbrellas. During the day we find a relaxing spot for a bite to eat with family and friends. By night it takes on more of a cosy small bar feel.

If you love craft beer, with a side of dude food – Piggy Food Co is the spot for you. There’s an ever changing draught selection of local, interstate and international beers from small independent breweries. Chef chooses a south west favourite, from Colonial Brewing Co. The “S’wine” list is short and sweet, though not without some interesting choices. I enjoy a glass of fruity Alkoomi SSB, also from Margaret River.

Piggy Food Co, North Fremantle

I order food at the bar, where the furniture has been made by multitalented co-owner and Head Chef Max Kordyl, with locally salvaged materials. The engaging, friendly staff are only too happy to have a chin-wag and offer us suggestions of the best menu picks. There’s even a special grilled cheese menu for those with the late night munchies, well after the kitchen has closed.

Piggy Food Co, North Fremantle

Pork is very much the star of the menu, with pork covered fries, pork burgers and pork tacos. The local produce driven menu offers other choices too. Everything is made in house, from scratch, with the exception of their burger buns and ice cream.

Saucy BBQ chicken wings ($10) are simply scrumptious. The tender wigs are served with a blue cheese sauce or creamy ranch dressing for dipping. If you’re feeling brave, add a kick to the wings with a generous squirt of hot sauce.

Piggy Food Co, North Fremantle

Nicely charred grilled mini corn on the cobs ($5) are delicious, tossed in a little smoked paprika and garlic.

Piggy Food Co, North Fremantle

Loaded “Hog Fries” ($14) are topped with plenty of pulled pork, cheese, salsa fresca, house BBQ sauce and a dollop of sour cream. These fries last a matter of minutes, we should have ordered two serves. The boys are such food-hogs! The topping isn’t gooey enough for my liking, I would have liked to see copious amounts of melted cheese smothering the meaty fries.

Piggy Food Co, North Fremantle

Chef couldn’t say no to the pork-tastic “Whole Hog” burger ($20). This soft ciabatta bun is jam packed full of flavours from a spiced chorizo patty, mouth-watering pulled pork, crispy bacon, cheese, slaw, salsa fresca, smoked chipotle mayo and house BBQ sauce. All that makes for a huge burger to try to fit it in your mouth! Chef only just manages to devour it all.

Let’s Thursday Like We Friday

Why wait for Friday drinks to celebrate the end of the working week? City of Perth has come up with a fantastic initiative to get Perthies to ring in the weekend a little earlier – ‘Let’s Thursday Like We Friday’. The Perth CBD and Northbridge has an eclectic selection of restaurants, bars and foodie events, many of which are taking part in ‘Let’s Thursday Like We Friday’ offering meal deals, entertainment, drink specials and more.

I joined in on the ‘Let’s Thursday like We Friday’ fun with Taco Thursdays at Baby Mammoth small bar in Northbridge and the Two Feet and a Heartbeat cocktail walking tour in the CBD.

Baby Mammoth – $6 Taco Offer

Baby Mammoth is a little piece of South Africa, found in between fellow trendy bars and restaurants on the bustling William Street in Northbridge. Each Thursday Executive chef Ryan Lambson creates three delicious tacos with whatever produce he has, on hand pressed soft corn tortillas. They are SO dang good!

The delicious tacos are just $6 each and there are also glasses of house wine and a selection of tinnies for $6too. At Baby Mammoth, there are A LOT of alcoholic options – an extensive bottled beer list, loads of cocktails and an intensively researched wine list. The bar team love to get creative and their own beer-based vermouths and liqueurs form the base of their unique beer cocktails. The drinks list isn’t full of the usual suspects and I really love that. My friend Reeva and I shared some tacos at the bar over a glass or two of crisp house white and a big bowl of fries.

A hemp seed taco filled with smoked, pickled mushrooms and herbs is available on their menu anytime.

Brisket, queso fresco, confit tomatoes and fried purple sweet potato tacos were sooo tasty!

Salmon, creme fraiche, celeriac kraut, lemon juice and coriander tacos really hit the spot too!

The food at Baby Mammoth is wonderfully different and reasonably priced. Totally recommended for some drinkies over some bites with friends or your work besties.

Two Feet and a Heartbeat – Cocktail Tour Offer

Two Feet and A Heartbeat have been running their walking tours of Perth for over a decade. My lovely friend Jo and I popped along to their Cocktail Tour, which usually is held on Saturdays and especially for “Let’s Thursday” during May. The tour takes in three sophisticated bars where you can expect a night filled with yummy cocktails, fun facts and quirky tales of Perth characters. We were excited to meet our guide, the very knowledgeable Ryan, and our friendly tour group under the arches of Perth Town Hall. The secret itinerary only added to the excitement!

The Treasury Lounge & Bar’s “Kings Park” Cocktail

First, we headed to the neighbouring State Buildings, where there were so many exciting cocktail possibilities! I had thought we were going to enjoy drinkies at Halford Bar, though we headed downstairs to trendy Thai spot, Long Chim. Here,Ryan paused to give us a little history on the buildings.

Then we carried on through the grand old building to The Treasury Lounge and Bar, which is the swanky lobby bar of the luxe Como Hotel. Their “Kings Park” cocktail showcases fresh local ingredients like Jarrah honey water, a housemade lime sherbert, orange bitters, and a jasmine green tea infused Tanqueray gin. The flower garnished drink is so refreshing!

After, we took a stroll down St Georges Terrace, with Ryan telling us interesting titbits of Perth information along the way.

Print Hall’s “Red Skye Over Red Sea” Cocktail

At Print Hall were treated to an exclusive cocktail made one time only by one of Print Hall’s talented bar mixologists.

If you love a slightly sour cocktail, with lots of tang, this one is definitely for you. The tasty cocktail is a twist on a Dark and Stormy with Campari, sweet lychee syrup, rhubarb bitters (not heard of that one!), ginger beer and finished with a slice of orange and dash of lemonade.

Our group also tucked into some drool-worthy stone baked pizzas, as well as octopus and chorizo.

Next, we walked down King Street in search of our final cocktail. Along the way, Ryan stopped to tell us a tale about the delivery boys that used to sit on a step at His Majesty’s Theatre, when they’d have their beer after work. Years ago, they would cross King Street to push their bottle tops into the trunk of one of the Palm trees outside the Intercontinental Perth. I couldn’t believe that I’d walked past this tree hundreds of times and never noticed all the shiny and weather rusted bottle tops!

Ryan gave us a clue that there would be live music involved in our final stop and I had a pretty good feeling we were headed to a spot that I’ve always wanted to try…

Laneway Lounge’s “Champagne & Strawberry Martini” Cocktail

The Laneway Lounge Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato
I always thought the Laneway Lounge would be my kind of bar and I was right. A live band was playing old school RnB classics and there was a great atmosphere.

Here, we had my favourite cocktail of the evening, though it was a tough call! This cocktail tastes like strawberries and cream with ketel one vodka, fresh pressed strawberries, creme de fraise, and a champagne emulsion. SO LUSH!

I was really impressed with Two Feet and A Heartbeat. A walking tour is a great way to meet new people and discover something new about our beautiful city. ‘Let’s Thursday Like We Friday’ runs during May 2018 in the City of Perth. There are over 50 fantastic food, drinks and events offers to check out here.

I was invited to check out these ‘Let’s Thursday like We Friday’ offers by the City of Perth, all words and opinions are my own.

Dutch Trading Company, Vic Park


Dutch Trading Company Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Found at the city end of the Albany Highway strip is Dutch Trading Co. It’s a hip hang out for craft beer lovers and good news… it’s also family friendly! I was meeting some of my friends for a casual catch up, with kids in tow. As soon as I stepped inside the bar I knew I’d been here before, in a past (kid-free) life, back in the day when it was known as Manhattans. Chef was doing his apprenticeship at the Hyatt and this was a after work hang out, just over the Causeway.


Here is where I should insert snippets of knowledge about craft beer… except I have none. I made a mental note to bring Chef back here, as he’d really be able to appreciate a beer lovin’ spot like this. Continue reading

New Normal, Subiaco

IMG_9572Subi is on the up – home again to some of Perth’s best restaurants. LuLu La Delizia was recently named Australia’s number one pasta restaurant and another to add to this list of must-try Subiaco dining spots is New Normal.IMG_9604

The new bar and kitchen, found in the Simon Chugg heritage building, is a place to share grazing plates with friends over some carefully selected local wines. There are long communal tables with vases of native flora, cosy booths draped with art deco style light fittings and high stools at the bar.IMG_9600

Varsity Bar, Nedlands


Varsity Bar Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Varsity Bar is quite the popular burger joint. The American themed bar, with huge mural of the “stars and stripes”, was heaving on a Sunday lunchtime. Tables full of punters devouring burgers, $5 pint cans of PBR American beer and Pyrex jugs filled to the brim with creamy milkshakes.


The bar is found on the ground level of Broadway Shopping Centre, a hop skip and jump from UWA, giving Varsity a student bar feel, though there were plenty of “cough” older people chowing down on their burgers there too.


The crowd at Varsity is pretty lively. It’s not a quiet bar. There’s sports on big screens, pool tables, ping pong and more.


With Little Chef being an only child, we tend to think of where we’d like to go to eat and hope that there’s a kids menu, rather than take him somewhere geared at kids with an indoor playground and average food. Varsity isn’t a bar you’d immediately think of taking kids to, though there were quite a few families when we visited. I think its fine for older kids, like 8 year old Little Chef. There’s a kids menu so it ticked that box for us.
Little Chef picked the cheeseburger and fries ($10), which he devoured in next to no time.IMG_8937

West at Ku De Ta Perth {CLOSED}

IMG_5554Ku De Ta Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

I sit with a cocktail in hand on the deck of one of Perth’s most anticipated new venues. A Bali favourite, Ku De Ta has opened its first international outpost in Perth, one thinks as Perth natives are most familiar with the chilled chic of the Indonesian restaurant and beach lounge.IMG_5563

Ku De Ta Perth doesn’t borrow from its Bali counterpart, except for the luxe vibe, water views and smooth soundtrack. For a true Bali experience, Ku De Ta will soon will have Bintang on tap. IMG_5559

Natural and organic materials are used throughout the venue, many incorporating a little piece of WA. Reclaimed timber from the Bunbury Jetty is used for bench seats. Dark wood is used throughout and the space has an industrial feel.IMG_5557

Architect Perparim Rama has created three distinct spaces at Ku De Ta, each with a different purpose. The Deck bar sits above the Swan River offers casual food, including gourmet pizzas.IMG_5555

A second area, West, steps things up a notch with a focus on fresh seafood and charcuterie share dishes. Ku Dining is their contemporary a la carte restaurant.IMG_5649

Apart from its stunning setting on the Swan River, the thing that immediately grabs me is the sheer number of staff. They’ll be needed when the 850 capacity venue gets busy. They are well versed in engaging customer service and knowledgeable when quizzed about their offerings.IMG_5610

After pre-dinner drinks on the Deck, we head to West without a booking – a bit risky in opening week, but for an early midweek dinner, we think it will work. We’re greeted by a group of wait staff and after a shocked gasp that we did not have a booking, we are ushered to a table which we are happy to hand back by 7.30pm.IMG_5665

The menu descriptions name just a few main ingredients for each dish, which adds to the element of surprise. I guzzle down three freshly shucked oysters, with a dash of a zesty vinaigrette.IMG_5583 Continue reading

Mayfair Lane – West Perth

IMG_2160Mayfair Lane Pub & Dining Room Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato
Mayfair Lane is a British pub, but not as we know it. The West Perth venue is not similar to other theme bars, with their faux Tudor façades and twee interiors. Mayfair Lane oozes cool Britannia.

We reviewed this venue, then known as The Brown Fox, a few years ago. It was adequate and did everything it said on the box. With the addition of new owners Chris and Foni Pollitt, and a new Head Chef, everything has been stepped up a few notches.

Gone is the dingy interior, now there’s welcoming subtle blue/grey hues and chandeliers to lighten up the bar. The dining room is elegant. If you’re after something more casual, sit on a high table near the bar or outside on the veranda along with the West Perth office workers.IMG_4815

Foni, along with her husband Chris, have spent many years in hospitality all around the world. Their very different experiences bring a lot to this gastro pub. Foni has had a polished, silver service career in high end restaurants as a Maître’D, as well as opening many gastropubs in the UK and Canada. Chris ran some of the hippest bars in East London. Head Chef, Shannon Wilson has rattled his pans all around the world, including at Necker Island for Sir Richard Branson, no less.

As we arrive for lunch, there doesn’t seem to be any wait staff on the floor. We seat ourselves on the veranda and find menus, unsure if table service is on offer. It is and after our wait person arrives, the service is on the ball. At Mayfair Lane you can dine on traditional pub fayre, like bangers and mash or choose something a little fancy, like their lamb assiette. I’m here for one of their signature dishes, the steak tartare, which some have said is the best in Perth.IMG_2178

The extensive wine list is a little bit special. Foni, is somewhat of a Sommelier extraordinaire. The certified wine educator has created what is arguably the best wine list of any pub in Perth. There’s a large choice of by the glass wines and I pick a French rose, feeling confident that it will be a cracker. The pale rose Château Les Crostes Cinsault Grenache is indeed a tasty drop.IMG_4746

I start with the famed steak tartare, $22, which is always a good measure of a kitchen. Ultra-fresh raw steak is bound together with herbs, shallots and a spiced mayo then topped with a gooey, soft-boiled quail’s egg.  I scoop at the delicious tartare with the house made game crisps. It’s spot on.IMG_4771

At $21, the three pan-fried scallops are a touch on the pricey side. Served with a creamy pommes purée, vanilla tomato compote and a verjuice jus, this light dish has well balanced, punchy flavours.IMG_4763 Continue reading

5 Perth-fect Valentine’s Day Ideas


Cocktails for two with an oceanside view at Odyssea, City Beach.

Some may say February 14th aka Valentine’s Day is the cheesiest day of the year, but honestly who doesn’t love a bit of cheese? Whether it’s in the form of a triple brie, gouda or a bit of giggle-worthy romance, we think V-Day is the perfect excuse to treat yourself and/or a loved one.

Here in Perth we have a myriad of options that will work as the perfect gift for both him and her on this loved up holiday. In our opinion nothing says ‘I Love You’ more than treating the senses to a gastronomic delight or special outing together. There is a ton of über romantic Valentine’s venues and ideas to indulge in, however here are 5 of our top picks to get you in the mood.

1. Romantic Restaurant or Flirty Café


Pick Wildflower restaurant for an Indulgent Valentines dinner.

You can say that romance is in the eye of the beholder. Everyone has a different perspective on what they call romantic whether it’s a single red rose and a 5-star restaurant or heading out to a favourite coffee shop where you first met your beloved for the first time for some reminiscing. Romance can be simple or extravagant, it’s just a matter of putting some heart into it.

Whether you’re looking for a fun and flirty café or a romantic restaurant in Perth, there are platefuls of options! If you want to have a laugh at the cheesy pun of Valentine’s Day, why not head out to The Cheese Barrel in the Swan Valley for a very cheesy date teamed with some fabulous wine from sister property Olive Farm Wines. Or perhaps try one of the most talked about venues at the moment Wildflower in the Perth CBD where the dishes are inspired by the six Noongar seasons. You can enjoy either a 5-course tasting menu or order off the à la carte menu.

If neither of those tasty spots grab your attention, then you can find a range of Perth-fect dining options here.

2. Hand-Holding Beach Stroll


Scarborough Beach is just one of many beautiful Perth beaches for a sunset stroll.

We live in Perth – one of the most amazing destinations in the world for glorious stretches of beautiful coastline – so it’s only natural to head there as much as possible. Whether you visit the beach a lot or don’t get there as much as you would like to, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to plan a beach visit.

Between the rolling waves, sand between your toes and hopefully some hand-holding, there’s no doubt some beach time should be on the cards. Team your beach trip with a picnic (see point 5 for some top picnic tips) or some fish’n’chips on the beach and it’s the perfect low-key yet dreamy V-Day idea.

3. Gondola & Champagne Cruise

Between the pizza, pasta, prosecco and red wine – Italy simply oozes love, or should we say oozes amore! Okay so you may not be able to sneak away for that much-needed Italian holiday, but you can have a piece of it here in Perth.

Have you heard about the gondola boats that glide around the canals in Venice? Well, here in Perth we have a beautifully crafted gondola that glides around the Swan River. You can opt for either a 15-minute cruise or a lush 1-hour cruise between 11am and 7pm daily.

With the 1 hour cruise, you can also choose to add on a bottle of sparkling wine or champagne, a red rose and chocolates to really step it up a notch. Make it an 11am champagne breakfast/brunch cruise or why not a magical 6pm cruise after which you can hit up one of the many Elizabeth Quay or Perth CBD eating and drinking spots.

4. Not Your Typical Dinner/Lunch Date


Something different for foodies. Pic credit : Two Feet & a Heartbeat

In Perth, we have some awesome alternatives to your typical sit down meal. A food and/or drinks tour is a fun date idea and it helps you avoid any awkward silent moments because you’ll be in a group situation. Perhaps this is the perfect idea for those who are not quite ready for a one-on-one evening with your new/potential bae.

Plus, if your date is into their exercise and getting their ‘Fitbit Steps’ or closing their Apple Watch Activity Circles then why not opt for something like a Two Feet & a Heartbeat tour. These guys operate several walking tours involving food and drinks from a Morning Tea Tour of Perth City to a CBD Progressive Dinner and Eat/Drink/Walk Small Bar Tours of both the CBD and Northbridge.

5. The Loved-Up Picnic


The beautiful Zig Zag, Perth Hills.

There’s something extra special about a picnic – whether you pick the location for the amazing view, for the secluded privacy or for the nostalgia – a picnic is an easy-to-make happen yet incredibly romantic Feb 14th idea. Make it a surprise for your other half and it’s the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift. You can put as much or as little effort into it.

Whether you want to hand-make a basket full of treats or purchase a ready to go picnic hamper it’s up to you. In Perth we are lucky to have loads of gorgeous lookouts and parks for picnics from the Kalamunda Zig Zag Lookout in the Perth Hills to Bayview Park in Mosman and of course all those glorious Perth beaches.

Great food, great drinks and without a doubt great company is all you need to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember. Just don’t forget the cheese 😉

Leederville Food Safari

kitschKitsch Bar Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

With Christmas Day less than two weeks away, there’s inevitably some hard-to-buy-for people still on your Christmas shopping list. If they’re a foodie, gift them something a little bit different this year. A food tour or progressive dinner are always great for discovering a tasty new eatery. We checked out one of the most unique progressive dinners in town. The Leederville Food Safari is a progressive dinner, by rickshaw, to three of Leederville’s most popular eateries.img_2706

A foodie friend of mine, Jennie from Buggybuddys and I kick off the night at Ria Malay Kitchen, an Aladdin’s cave of rich murals and aromas. Malay cuisine is a melting pot of Malaysian, Indian, Chinese and even Portuguese foods.ria

We’re seated by the window, at what seems like the best seat in the house and order a couple of mojitos from their drinks menu as well as pre-order our mains for Kitsch.img_2710

We receive a plated entrée each of selection of Ria’s favourites. There’s crisp lotus chips, with a house made chili samba for dipping, two spring rolls, a generous chicken satay with traditional peanut sauce and more. I’m really impressed by the fried mushroom ball, a whole mushroom filled with spiced potato and mint and deep fried till crisp, it’s deliciously different.img_2714

After we finish our Malay inspired nibbles, our friendly driver and guide appears and escorts us outside to the rickshaw. We sit back in our rickshaw and our driver steers us up the Oxford Street strip. I’ve had some hairy rickshaw rides in Asia, but with Leederville’s 40Kmph zone and a bike lane for most of the journey, we feel very safe. It’s a lot of fun!img_2735

Thanks to our driver’s pedal power we arrive at our second stop, Kitsch, in no time. We sit on miss matched furniture in the courtyard of the quirky bar, overlooked by a vibrant mural and frangipani tree adorned by fairy lights. It’s the perfect spot for a warm summer’s evening. The bar has a vibrant atmosphere without being too loud. We feel like we’ve been transported to somewhere a little more tropical than the inner suburbs of Perth.img_2741

The drinks list at Kitsch is extensive and has plenty of interesting wines and cocktails. It seems rude not to partake in something festive, so I choose a pineapple cinnamon margarita, $18. A delicious combination of tequila and Cointreau, shaken with pineapple and fresh lime juice. The refreshing drink is served in a short glass, on the rocks with a cinnamon sugar rim.img_2743

Here at Kitsch, the Asian menu is very “street”. Think robust hot, crisp, sweet, salty and sour flavours. For our mains we choose two street plates from the set menu and a side to share. All dishes are accompanied with coconut jasmine rice.img_2758

We share crispy skin pork belly. The moist meat is topped with crunchy crackle and a chilli caramel. On the side is a crisp apple salad.pork-belly

Another share dish we relish is the barbeque Szechuan chicken. Its spiciness nicely warms the palate and is complimented by the fresh flavours of the corn salsa and coriander.img_2750

On the side we enjoy a Thai favourite, a spicy green papaya salad with tamarind dressing and crunchy peanuts.

img_2763Night has fallen and we take the trip back down Oxford Street, past the bustling bars and restaurants to our last stop, Foam Coffee Bar. Previously, I have enjoyed a very tasty brunch at Foam.img_2764

At Foam we have the pick of the sweet treats and cakes in their cabinet and we enjoy an iced water infused with berries and mint as we make our difficult choice.img_2766

I choose a berry cheesecake which is to be devoured along with my choice of drink. I temped by a chili hot chocolate, though not wanting to overload on the sweets, I choose a chai tea. We stay and chat for a while about our exciting rickshaw ride, before walking off into the night, thoroughly full!img_2780

The Leederville Food Safari is available at $95 per person. Included with each course is sparking or still water, with an option to add wine and beer for an extra $48 per person. Jen and I couldn’t go past the cocktails though! The service at all venues is helpful and extremely organised. The progressive dinner is ideal for pairs or small groups and runs Friday and Saturday nights, weather permitting.img_2762

The Village Bar {See Subiaco}


The Village Bar Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Subiaco is full of hidden gems that are frequented by locals who I’m sure would like to keep their haunts under wraps. One of these local “secrets” is The Village Bar, which is owned by the same people as the fabulous Little Way in Nedlands. It doesn’t look very big from the outside, but it’s a bit of a tardis, with plenty of room inside.img_0697

The Village Bar, the third venue on our cocktails and canapés tour of Subi, has a pub feel and the menu has a lot of pub favourites on it. We enjoyed some classic share platters, Moroccan crumbed squid rings served with hot sauce, a prosciutto board brimming with cheese, salami, olives, fetta, bread and more, My favourite morsel was the crisp pumpkin and saffron arancini.img_0694

To wash down all of the tasty food we were treated to a couple of their cocktails. First up was their gin and tonic with a twist.. this G&T had an added kick of fresh chilli! It was an interesting take on the classic drink. We also tried a delicious wine based cocktail that has been made especially for the UnWined 2016 after party.img_0691

The Village Bar has good vibes and is a great spot for a casual meal and drinkies with a group of friends. Check out their website for food specials, quiz nights and more.img_0688
