Dragon Palace Dim Sum, Northbridge (Perth)

Dragon Palace Dim Sum, Northbridge (Perth)

 


Think Dim Sum in Perth and the one of the names that come to mind is Dragon Palace. It’s one of the few restaurants whose name is synonymous with authentic Dim Sum Lunches in Perth.

Situated in Northbridge, ala Chinatown, Dragon Palace Seafood Restaurant (it’s full name), is located within the premises of a two storey building that looked rather promising on first sight. Tables were spread out fairly far apart, unlike say Tim Ho Wan in Hong Kong and the noise levels for a yum cha dim sum restaurant are kept to a somewhat acceptable volume – you wouldn’t need to shout to get yourself heard – Lin Heung.

The Quarter on Hay, CBD (Perth)

The Quarter on Hay, CBD (Perth)

A quick search on Urbanspoon led me to The Quarter on Hay. A cafe-restaurant located in the middle of town – next to the likes of brand-name shops.

For starters, I tried the Bresse Blue and white onion tart, roast pear and rocket salad. Think, white onion quiche and you basically get the idea. According to the waiter, the white onion tart is one of the restaurant’s more popular dishes and I can see why so; The pastry was firm and not too crumbly and the combination of the Bresse Blue (which was on the mild side of things) and the white onions was excellent.

Le Benardin New York Lunch HungryEpicurean Food Blog  (6)

Chef Eric Ripert – I’ve heard of his name, I’ve watched shows that he has hosted (Avec Eric, anyone?), I’ve seen him on Top Chef, and I’ve read his cook books. I’m glad to say that I’ve met him and dined at his restaurant, Le Bernardin, in New York. I made my reservations for lunch on OpenTable.com some weeks ahead of my planned visit, yet some of my initial date choices were already full for both sittings.

The moment that I stepped into Le Bernardin, I thought, “Wow, this is some restaurant, eh?” High ceilings, fairly large tables and many wait staff, all of whom serve with a smile. I checked in my coat and was seated at a table. I perused the menu and made a mental note of what to choose. Nonetheless, I asked my server for his recommendations. I was rather glad that with the exception of dessert, his recommendations checked with mine. It was like telepathy, I kid you not.

I’ve heard so much of Le Bernardin prior to my visit (even my Uncle who’s a chef and lives in New York has praises for it) and so, with built up anticipation and eagerness to try the food here,  it was time to get my adventure started..

Nature Valley Chewy Bars

Nature Valley Chewy Bars

I receive quite a number of press releases but I seldom publish them here especially for products that I’ve never tried before. But this is slightly different – How different, you ask? – For one, I have a stash of them every so often lying in my cupboards to beat those hunger pangs and where a fruit or a can of tuna just doesn’t quite cut it and two, they taste real good.

So here goes –

Nature Valley is also launching a new chewy bar, available on selected supermarket shelves from 8 April 2011 onwards for a limited period only. The chewy bars come in two flavours – Mixed Berry and Fruit & Nut. The bars are made with all-natural ingredients, such as almonds, peanuts, cranberries and blueberries and whole-grain oats. They are priced at $6.30 per six-pouch box and are now available for sale at major supermarkets for a limited time only
