Restaurant Ember never fails to please and this meal was no different.

I’ve blogged about Restaurant Ember once before and have probably dined here at least 4 or 5 times since then.  Ember’s a relatively well-established restaurant run by husband and wife team of Sebastian and Sabrina continues to serve delicious dishes that tempt my taste buds on every visit.

Note: This visit took place a few months back and as such there might have been changes to the menu since.

Tambuah Mas

Tambuah Mas

Do you have a favourite place to go to when a certain craving jumps out of the blues? I’m not sure about you, but I definitely do. And when it comes to curbing my urge for Indonesian food – there can only be one – Tambuah Mas. 

 

Tambuah Mas is probably one of the oldest (or simply, THE oldest) Indonesian restaurant still running. Oh for the record, it is the favourite of my parents too! I think there was a period when my mum would patronize them a few times a week. They’ve since expanded and opened outlets beyond the main branch at Tanglin Shopping Centre. Having tried both the Paragon and Marina Square outlets, I have to say that the main outlet still retains the quality that I’ve since grown accustomed to.

Seasons of Hanoi (Hanoi)

Seasons of Hanoi (Hanoi)

Hanoi oh Hanoi, how I miss you so… And writing this post is not helping matters.

We arrived into Hanoi late afternoon and pretty much unpacked our luggage. Not long after, we approached the concierge at the hotel to recommend to us a restaurant that served Classic Vietnamese cuisine, just to get ourselves in the mood for the few days that we had. Without much thought, Seasons of Hanoi, came to his mind. We agreed and reservations were made for that evening.

Actually, since we (or rather, I) were feeling rather peckish, we had already ventured out nearby to have a bowl of Pho Bo at a roadside stall. But, that’s another story for another time. Suffice to say, that was one of the best bowls that I’ve had the pleasure of having and only for (if memory serves), US$2.

Balthazar, CBD (Perth)

Balthazar, CBD (Perth)

Truffle honey cream, berries, pecans, licorice and Black Garlic ice cream (A$18)

Balthazaar is consistently ranked as one of the better restaurants in Perth, especially in the CBD region. One of the restaurant and dining guidebooks, even referred to it as, “The Restaurant-to-Go in Perth“.  Balthazar is rather centrally located, just off St. Georges Terrace and within a few minutes walk from the Esplanande Bus Port.

I wondered if the restaurant would live up to both the heightened expectations and bold claims.
