March into Merivale, the recession busting promotion that has been running offering $33 meals, is almost over and I only managed one visit! But I made sure it was to the best: Est Restaurant…awarded three hats by the SMH Good Food Awards, and with Peter Doyle at the helm it is consistently reviewed as one of the best restaurants in Sydney.

*squeals with delight* At last I can bring you evidence of one of my fave meals I’ve had recently. I brought my boyfriend here recently for his birthday and to make it a little special left all photographic equipment at home. Halfway through the meal sensing my excitement at how good everything was, and how frustrated I was in not being able to record it, he offered me his iphone to take pics with. I refused, only because the camera is so crap! But luckily for me, I had opportunity to go back and try some of the dishes I missed out on on my previous visit, and take photos!

Located at the far end of Kent St, this out of the way spot is a gem. Not too flashy, but with some great food and decor to please.

I’d heard rumblings from the Twitterverse of the cafe/bar Tiger, Tiger during Edge of the Web held in Perth. So it was our first stop on arrival in the CBD. By day 4 of our trip, as I have previously mentioned, we were desperate for decent coffee. Lucky for us, Tiger, Tiger was a mere hop, skip and a jump away. In addition it also supplied free wireless! So on our first visit (a scorcher of a 42° degree day) we headed into it’s cool surrounds to get some coffee, find out what was going on over East via the interwebz and try some of their goodies. I must make honourable mention of the wonderful waitress who wrapped a bunch of ice in a tea towel to place around our hot necks…

Ah, breakfast in Darlo…one of my favourite things to do! The choice available never ceases to satisfy!
Since Pelagio changed hands about a year ago, things have changed. Formerly a deli/greengrocer with a huge range of products available with some eat in options, the space has been cleared and refined…
We meet here for breakfast bright and early (9am) to avoid a wait for tables…
Breakfast in Perth again. This time another little spot on King Street; Etro. In my travels on the web, I had read comments highly praising Etro over No. 44 King Street, so we had to try both!
