Roll back eight years and I was out on the town nearly every night with friends, dancing until dawn and drinking whatever was the cheapest option that evening (usually Passion Pop, ew). These days I prefer a few drinks with close friends and something I actually enjoy drinking. Introducing my new favourite go to beverage – Coco Vodka. Sounds delicious already, right?
Life has just been so insanely busy lately I haven’t had much of a chance to dine out in true food reviewer form. I know right? Blogger blasphemy!

Secondly, so many cafes are the size of a shoe box of late that seven people wouldn’t even fit in the space! So finding a crowd pleasing option to suit seven felt like a bit of a mission a few weeks back, but the mission was a total success when we discovered the slick and sexy Tabella. Perched near Fremantle cafe royalty Gino’s, Tabella is an Italian foodie dream. Serving good honest meals from dawn till dusk, we were lucky to book a table (via Dimmi) for our large party without any trouble. And it was a good table.

A very short and sweet post today but it is time for an announcement! I’m so excited to share some exciting news with you all (if you hadn’t seen it on Instagram already). Last week foodie website OZeating launched their very own WA based online food experience. Welcome to the world OZeating WA!
