PERTH - Where to Go ?

Quite lucky to have a chance to visit Perth for the 3rd time. I am surpised with the changes around the city, they have done major works since my last trip back in 2006, it is now a pretty city !!

Perth has relaxing atmosphere, everything seems running at a slow pace (no mad morning rush like Sydney), hardly any traffic jam.

Here's where to go:
I love this place, it is really unique, they really are GREEN wholistically. Everything seems to be made from recycled materials.
100 St Georges Terrace
  • Phin Vong
Family run Vietnamese restaurant, very affordable, approx $15 per head (appetiser, main, drink), restaurant is really clean which is a relief !!

William street
  • CORICA Pastries
Famous for their apple struddle, prebooking is recommended, they sold out like hot cakes
Pity I didn't have time to go there during this trip.

106 Aberdeen Street

Northbridge, WA 6003

p: (08) 9328 8196

  • King st cafe

Nice cafe across Louis Vuitton & Tiffany co., they baked their own bread, has great wine selection. The great thing about the cafe is they open till 10pm.

King Street (enter from Hay street)


Authentic Italian restaurant, nothing flash about the joint, food & service are great, they accept no booking, about 10 mins from city by car
273 Mill Point Road (Corner Douglas Ave)
South Perth

GREENHOUSE cafe - St Georges Terrace - city

The wall is filled with strawberry pots !!

GREENHOUSE cafe - My fresh Orange juice came in a (recycled) bottle
GREENHOUSE cafe - menu from recycled paper
and I love this bit ..

"Our eggs come from chickens @ margaret river organic free range, the back from pigs@ ...the bread@ greenhouse is made of house milled ...wheat...we make our yoghurt in house with milk from caprino farms..all the goats have names out there...
We will harvest herbs from the roof top when they are at their best"

GREENHOUSE cafe - breakfast - pancake with peach compote & vanilla mascarpone
They use real vanilla !! I can see the black dots !! It is nice & the sweetness level is low.

GREENHOUSE cafe - home made Peach Almond Tart
I love them, not too sweet which is great & it is freshly baked !!

PHINH VONG - Sugar cane prawn vermicelli
Tasty, love their radish/ carrot pickles, generous portion
Sugar cane prawn has good texture, not too doughy/ chewy

PHINH VONG - Fresh prawn spring roll

CIAO Italia - Seafood Pizza (called SARDEGNA)
CIAO Italia - Seafood Pizza (called SARDEGNA)
Generous seafood !! Nice pizza base too
CIAO Italia - Penne Arrabiata (olive, chilli, garlic)
Generous portion, I reckon this can be shared for 4 people, they use fresh tomatoes for sure !!
A little too sweet for my liking
