Maylands used to be “home” for E and I. A few years back we lived down by the river in a super cute townhouse and we frequented the Eighth Avenue and Whatley Crescent brunch spots on the regular.
I grew up in the sleepy town of Manjimup, and it seems to be one of those towns where the food scene has always been the same. Pizza shop (pretty good actually), pub (very good food but very pub-esque), and local cafe that I actually used to work at (so of course I didn’t want to dine there because I spent most of my time there working). The odd fast food joint would pop up for a few months then disappear, because although the town is a beautiful escape it isn’t the busiest place to run a business. But when I visited Manjimup on my Christmas break I was dying to try the new bar and restaurant everyone had been raving about. Does Manjimup finally have a modern eatery worth food blogging?
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! I love a good cafe visit, but every time I have dined out recently it has been an eat and run moment. Or a catch up with friends moment. Or a “I am so hungry I can’t be bothered photographing my food until it’s cold” moment. No staged pictures, no “styling” the table. Just good old fashioned nomming. But I thought I’d share a few spots I’ve recently visited (in non blogger style).
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!
It’s not every day you have the chance to sit down to a decadent three course meal, and a birthday is a very good chance to do so! E’s sister S celebrated a milestone birthday a few weeks back so obviously we had to celebrate in style, and Casa Del Amici provided the goods.
WHO: V Burger Bar WHAT: “Blogger Nite” WHEN: October 13 WHERE: V Burger Bar, Floreat WHY: Launch night for the new brioche bun range
If you ever find yourself in the tiny country town of Toodyay and a coffee and cake craving hits (they are very sporadic), pop over to Wendouree Tea Rooms.
We’ve been living in South Perth for over a year and E & I wanted to keep it local for today’s brunch – and nothing screams South Perth than a view of the city and a cool breeze.
