That Little Mexican Place

Vic Park, 279 AL 

  • Initial feel is good
  • Chairs are to big and the gap between the tables not great enough leading to that change dance with strangers
  • the service is not relaxed particularly. 
  • Top marks for a little creativity
  • While we sat 3 group came in sat down, read the menu and walked out.  Now sure why.  Might me that Perth is not ready for this menu from a Mexican restaurant.  Not sure I am ready.
  • Portions where small - unusual for Perth
  • I think this place just misses the mark - its a really great attempt but it does not make it.  In the end it is expensive for food that is not that special and just not creative or tasty enough.

Real Flavour of India, 2 stars

893 Albany Hwy, East Victoria Park, 08 9470 1112

Large, bright and plain room somewhat missing character.   Food is passable, not the freshest and tastiest Indian food I have had.  Missing the yum factor.

Service was fast and friendly which kind of makes up for the ordinary food.  

Catalano's Cafe, 3.0 stars

Catalano's Cafe 08 9362 1121 266 Albany Hwy, Victoria Park

Huge serves, fast service make this place a winner.  Fancy it is not.  My 75 year old mother, loved this place - enough said? 

Next time we want lots of basic, wholesome we will think of this place.

The Bonsai, Northbridge

Modern Japanese.

We had the seaweed salad, duck, prawn and tuna, total $75 inc 2 beers.  Not a huge amount of food, but certainty enough.

The room is large and a little sterile, the main dinning room looks better.

Cafe Denada (08) 9315 3003, 38 Moolyeen Rd, Ardross

Really busy on this fresh Sunday morning,

Decent Coffee and the tasty fig and ginger bread.  The smoked salmon, egg and spinach is a miss unfortunately.

PhuPho, Vic Park

Cheap and tasty basic Tai food from a busy little place.

The number of items on the menu that are not available is a little disconcerting.
