Food Review: Word. @ Upper Thomson Road

Located behind the upcoming Springleaf MRT station of the Thomson-East Coast Line is a newly opened cafe called Word. It has an industrial, rustic theme going on. Their menu focuses mainly on Asian fusion-ed with western cuisine, and quite punnily-named menu items as well. Cut the Crab (S$15) which is their homemade crab cakes was nicely breaded and pretty salty on its own. The sauce tastes like a combination of a Thousand Island Dressing and a lemon vinaigrette. The pairing went perfectly with each other, toning down the saltiness from the crab cakes. The Vongole Le Cream (S$14) was kind of bland and a tad bit more salt would have been nice. It has quite a large portion, pretty creamy and has a similar taste to a carbonara. However it lacks some sort of meat, so this dish is kinda pricey. We also ordered the chix lollipop (S$14). The chicken was cooked perfectly. The meat comes off the bone nicely and was tender. It is quite an interesting fusion dish, using the Chinese stir-fry black pepper sauce …

Cafe Review: The General Sherman

Saturday mornings are the best time to go out and explore new cafes… And after many failed attempts, I finally had the chance to visit The General Sherman. Located right opposite Fiona Stanley Hospital is a cute little cafe, perfect for a little me-time as it’s quiet on the weekends. The decor in the cafe has an industrial meets organic kind of vibe. With all the natural light shining in from the full-panel windows that is surrounding the cafe to the rustic pieces, I couldn’t help but love the brunch feels that I was getting. In addition to that, I love the fact that they had a kitchen, which basically means that I’m free from the fridge food choices! Yay! After much deliberation, I finally decided on an iced coffee($5) and the Pulled Pork Benedict ($19) as I felt that it was a unique dish that you wouldn’t usually find other cafe menus. And I’m glad to say that it did not disappoint!!    Needless to say, I polished off every bit of my yummy brunch, from …

Food Review: Café Etc

Ambience: We stumbled upon this Café located along Thomson Road during lunch time. It had a very rustic look to the place using dark furniture. It had very interesting decoration along the walls. Food: We ordered the set lunch consisting of a soup of the day, a main, a beverage and an optional choice of a desert of the day which we did not go for. Soup The soup of the day was a tomato soup. It tasted very authentic; you could taste the sourness of the tomatoes. It was seasoned nicely and served with a decent portion. Main The two mains we ordered were their beef steak and their chicken steak. The done-ness of the beef steak was medium rare, however I found the steak to be undercooked making the steak overly chewy. It was seasoned nicely and went well with the steak sauce. The fries were crispy and nicely salted. The chicken steak was cooked well but its sauce was overly salty and a rather boring dish. The mash potatoes were also very …

Food Review : MAX + SONS COFFEE

It’s always risky for me to go to Perth city, not because of safety reasons, but mainly because I have no self control when it comes to shopping. The abundance of boutiques and trendy clothes for affordable pricing available at the city is insane! If I lived anywhere nearer to the city, I would go broke! Thankfully, it takes a slight effort to head to the city, so the laziness is not a bad thing after all, hey! I did some damage to my wallet while shopping for winter necessities and when that was done, I took  a stroll down Williams Street while feeling like a million bucks with new clothes… (but oh, the irony!) After that day, I promised myself that I will only go shopping next season. All that shopping made me hungry and thirsty for something yummy.  I wasn’t looking for anything huge to devour, but a sandwich or a kebab didn’t sound too bad. I was aimlessly walking down Williams street and debating on whether I should go home and eat (to save cost) or …

Food Review: Hush Specialty Coffee

Barely 24 hours from the time I got back to Perth, I started to have massive cravings for coffee (as always) and lucky me lives a 10 minutes bus ride away from my favorite place in Perth – Fremantle. I made my way to there and got my coffee fix from the Markets which I have missed oh so much, I then decided to take a stroll down the Cappuccino Strip in Freo to see what I have been missing out from the last 3 months that I have been away. I made it all the way down to High street which usually is somewhat less crowded than Cappuccino Strip or even Market street in Freo. While I was aimlessly walking around with no sense of directions or whatsoever, I stumbled upon this really cozy looking cafe called “Hush” and I just knew that I had to drag Jannah here to try this place out with me, which then begins our little coffee adventure the very next day. As usual, standard Jannah and Preetha timing for …

Food Review: The Attic

So winter is almost over and the weather is currently pretty awkward. Nevertheless, we were keen on trying out this really cute cafe called “The Attic”. Funny fact, I came across this cafe on Urbanspoon sometime last year but somehow I could never find it in Fremantle because I kept getting lost. Of course like any other hungry human being, I gave up and went for the closest option to fill my tummy instead. Thankfully the weather this time around was perfect. However, we did get a little lost while trying to find this place since its quite easy to miss (especially if you’re not familiar with the streets of Fremantle).      If you are looking to have a nice and cozy Sunday morning breakfast or brunch with a small group of friends or alone then this is the place for you. The first thing that caught my eye about this place was their dessert choices. Instantly, I felt like a little kid craving for my sugar fix. I am obsessed with the layout of this cafe. …
