Do not judge a book by it’s cover

Walking down James street returning from a team lunch last week, I noticed a menu in a window stating Malaysian Food, not knowing there was even a restaurant there, I noted nothing other than the location vowing to return later as I really enjoy good malaysian food.

On return I found a little nondescript cafe in front of a combination pool hall/karaoke space. Not deterred, I checked the menu on the window out, it was rather long and had all the usual malaysian/singaporean food I adore #8230;

Return to Hoka Restaurant

Friday, January 6th, 2012

After the Singaporean Style Fish episode, I decided to return to Hoka Restaurant to see if there was something on the menu that excited my taste buds. I ordered as I was getting seated and two minutes later, a regular Chilli Chicken and rice was on my table. Chilli Chicken consisted of chicken, capsicum, baby […]

Ray’s Kitchen revisited

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Last time I visited Ray’s Kitchen, I was disappointed. I returned as a hungry cyclist looking to consume a roti or two.

Intrigued, as I never heard of Singaporean Style Fish before, I walked in as a hungry cyclist and ordered a large Singaporean Style Fish & Rice for $10.

Sometimes I don’t realise I lucky I am

I had to head to West Perth for an appointment and took the opportunity to catch up with a couple of friends for lunch. The eating establishment of choice was Tim’s Thai, which sounded ideal for a change in cuisine as I have yet to find a Thai restaurant in Northbridge I enjoy eating at.

The lunchtime menu, was typical generic south east asian noodle house. …

Ray’s Kitchen

Friday, October 28th, 2011

Ray’s Kitchen has taken over from Maks Place on William Street. Still has the same signage, same tired decor, and an almost identical menu of Malaysian/Singaporean hawker dishes. While I ate sparingly at Maks Place, I really enjoyed their Roti and Murtabak, but generally found the noodle and rice dishes disappointing. So what did I order first time at Ray’s Kitchen …

Give me some flavours

Vegetable Biryani

Still recovering from a cold, I thought about trying to treat my taste buds to some subtle flavours for a few seconds, before deciding my taste buds need to taste real flavours and I made the trek up …

A windy and wet October day, was a good excuse to enjoy my favourite winter meal, Raw Beef and Beef Ball Pho.

Hong Kong BBQ

There are only limited options for lunch on Monday, so seeing I was halfway down Francis street, I might as well walk a little further to …
