Bar One – the pannacotta was out of this world but gee it was a pricey lunch!!

So I splurged a bit at lunch yesterday…not at all the intention and a spur of the moment decision! My colleague and I were walking down Hay Street in the city looking for somewhere to have lunch where we had enough space to spread our paperwork…from looking for somewhere that served foccacias, we ended up fine dining @ Bar One.

We both ordered pastas for the mains, I had the penne with fennel sausage special (not sure how much this cost) and my colleague had the linguini which was served with scallops, snapper, prawns, chilli and preserved lemon ($34.50). Both were nice without being spectacular…

Though the dessert did impress!

The chocolate pannacotta was served with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and a delicious milk tuile (a thin crisp cookie) – the combination was scrumptious. The pannacotta was similar to a chocolate mousse but thicker, it was quite rich so the vanilla ice-cream and milk tuile complimented the pannacotta well.

I enjoyed my foodie experience at Bar One much more than my experience at Sentinel Bar and Grill which is also owned and operated by the same Perth restaurateur, Steve Scaffidi.

It was a $100 lunch ($50 each) and we only had mineral water / a lemon lime bitters for drinks…so a very pricey for a week day lunch but the service was fantastic and the food was quality. I will def be back, but next time I feel like pasta I’ll be going to my Italian in-laws’ kitchen or an authentic local Italian Restaurant like La Vela where $100 feeds four!

foodie cravings

I’m a foodie who enjoys trying new food anywhere / any place (restaurants, cafes, bars, market stalls, fast food joints…anywhere just name it!) both in Perth, Western Australia and on my travels. I’m not your ordinary foodie, I’m often described as ‘fussy’ but I really really do love my food - I guess just not everything that’s put on my plate. Though, my other half, ‘burger boy’, eats most foods so I’ll be blogging about what he eats too…and as the name implies, burgers will be a regular foodie blog for all you burger lovers outthere. I love showcasing my yummy food finds with pics so I thought why not share my passion for food with other foodies with my blog, foodie cravings. Follow my food journey as I discover new keepers and rave about my all-time favourites.

    Looks good but I agree $34 for a pasta is a bit much though.

      Also doesn’t help that I’ve been spoilt by my in-laws with their home-made pasta, so it’s got to be really good to get past my taste buds!! :)
