Restaurant Amuse, East Perth (Perth)

Restaurant Amuse, East Perth (Perth)

Restaurant Amusé (pronounced with an é) is probably THE restaurant to visit when one is in Perth. Having won over many food critics and bloggers alike, it has been accoladed with many awards including being rated number one in Western Australia in the Australian Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Guide three years in the row, 2010, 2011 & 2012 and Awarded Three Hats and rated 17/20 in the Australian Good Food and Travel Guide 2012 (Sidenote: This is one guide that I refer to quite frequently.)

Be forewarned though, that at Amusé, there are no ala-carte options. There is only the ONE degustation menu which changes based on ingredients and seasonality. You are, however, requested to make your allergies and dietary requirements known at point of reservation. (Considering that the restaurant is quite small and tables are quite wide spread, my recommendation to potential visitors is to definitely make a reservation before heading down!)

Ming Yuen Noodles (Hong Kong)

Ming Yuen Noodles (Hong Kong)

A random late night supper stop brought us to Ming Yuen Noodles, a nondescript noodle house in Kowloon. Ming Yuen Noodles has quite a few branches in Hong Kong and by most accounts, the reviews of the other outlets seem rather similar – being rather average.

To be honest, we were rather famished by the time the food arrived, but even with that in mind, the meal at Ming Yuen did come across as being rather disappointing.

For those of you who like their rice, in particular ‘hot-potted rice’ dishes, do read a review of another Hong Kong establishment that specializes in it – Four Seasons Pot Rice

New York: Cafe Boulud (5)

Part of the Daniel Boulud empire, Cafe Boulud NYC was one my last minute dining destinations while I was in New York back in December 2010. A last minute choice, yes, but a bad decision, it was not. In fact, this meal was one of the more memorable during my short trip to New York.

Tim Ho Wan, Sham Shui Po (Hong Kong)

Tim Ho Wan, Sham Shui Po (Hong Kong)

Tim Ho Wan Hong Kong

It is an undeniable fact that I am very, very fond of the dim sum at Tim Ho Wan. Having first blogged about it sometime back in December 2010, I have since revisited Tim Ho Wan two more times; this post documenting the latest visit in January 2012.

Instead of paying a visit to the first branch located in Mong Kong, we decided to drop by their outlet in Sham Shui Po. Benefiting from a significantly larger premise and more service staff, the outlet has reeled in the crowds since it opened. Of course, the Sham Shui Po outlet has its detractors – the main comment that the food served here pales in comparison.
