Perth: Epic Espresso, West Perth (Perth)

Perth: Epic Espresso, West Perth (Perth)

Perth - Epic Espresso - Best Espresso in Perth - HungryEpicurean (1)

Have you ever been to a place and you start falling in love with it the very moment you lay eyes on it? In our (my friends and I) opinion, we have;

And that place is Epic Espresso. Located along Hay Street, near the junction of Ord St. and Outram St., this quaint cafe serves up some of the purportedly best coffee in Perth. Had it not been for the reviews found online and in the lifestyle magazines, one could easily miss this place. Although, it’s still in the Perth CBD and while it’s within walking distance from the Murray/Hay St Malls, there’s a reason why the free Red CAT bus exists!

Walk into the cafe and you literally feel invigorated from the (can-i-say-soothing) aroma of roasted coffee that permeates through the air. I kid you not, we’ve been back here quite a number of times and Epic has never disappointed anyone of us yet.

Trattoria L’Ancora (CLOSED)

Trattoria L’Ancora (CLOSED)

It’s hard not to like L’Ancora – yes, it’s not a fine dining establishment, there’s no wood-fire pizza oven or even an Italian chef to boot, but L’Ancora is definitely one for keeps!

Granted you won’t find out-of-this-world meal choices here, but what you get is Italian cuisine that feels makes one feel a little like home. Although, I have found the food a lot better whenever the Head Chef Shaminda is in the kitchens. So ask when you make the reservations!

Michael’s (New York)

Michael’s (New York)

The age old saying that “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” is definitely not without truth.

Many people tend to skip breakfast in the name of DIETING or LOSING WEIGHT. But you are so, so wrong. On her blog, nutrition consultant Olivia Lee, who publishes interesting nutrition related posts under the moniker, Nutritioneer states,

“Some adults and teens skip breakfast in an effort to lose weight. That is one of the most common errors in any weight-loss diet. Skipping meals, especially breakfast, can actually make weight control more difficult because people tend to eat more food than usual at the next meal or nibble on less healthy snacks to stave-off hunger. Furthermore, some studies suggest that skipping meals is associated with greater odds of weight gain compared with those who regularly eat breakfast.”

Technicalities and scientific research aside, I love my breakfasts; Scrambled eggs, Poached eggs, or the occasional pancakes – you name it, I’ll have it. Coming back to the food – I thought, what better way to start off my New York posts with how each and every day should be started – Breakfast at Michael’s.

Eat Drink Perth 2011

Eat Drink Perth 2011


Eat Drink Perth is a festival run by the City of Perth (meaning East Perth, West Perth, the CBD, and lower Northbridge) and will run through all of March, and will involve lots of food events, dinners, talks, and tastings. The main aim is to promote the City of Perth as a great place to eat, drink, and generally be merry.

For more information on the event, a program brochure (PDF 7MB) can be downloaded, print out a calendar of events (PDF 168KB) or simply head on to the Eat Drink Perth website.

Not wanting to lose out on the Social Media aspect of things, the Eat Drink Perth festival is jumping on the bandwagon.

One of the events that my friends and I are quite keen on is the Hawker Food Market in the heart of the city every Friday in March – 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th – inclusive of Indonesian satay, Cambodian Larb Salad, Spanish Pinxtos, Turkish gozlemes, Moroccan tapas, Columbian empanadas, Mexican tacos and Singaporean noodle dishes. Sounds like something you’d find on the street corners of KL or Singapore.

So, the most important question is – Who’s going?
