Third time lucky at The Generous Squire

In celebration for Miss Jimmy’s birthday we went to The Generous Squire for dinner.

I had actually been to The Generous Squire a couple of times prior for birthday lunches at work and hadn’t been a fan. The first time I went was ok but the squid I had ordered was too battered for my liking so that was just a poor selection on my behalf but the second time we went, I ordered the $20 tasting plate which arrived 45 minutes after I had ordered. It was also after everyone else had finished their meal, the worse thing was that I was absolutely starving that day and had been looking forward to lunch and really didn’t have a whole lot of time to waste – I had literally 15/20 minutes to eat before I had to rush back to work for a meeting. To top it off the food was cold and tasteless.

So anyway from my previous experience you can gather that I wasn’t that keen on going to The Generous Squire for dinner. But Bocca which I had planned on taking Miss Jimmy to was closed and she had blisters which meant walking wasn’t an option so The Generous Squire it was…

I was craving Bocca’s gnocchi and because of my bad experience at The Generous Squire last time, I was even pickier than usual with my food so I opted for the safe option and had a steak sandwich.

The safe option paid off :) the caramelized onion was delicious and the steak was cooked perfectly and well done as requested.

 Miss Jimmy really enjoyed her roasted vegetable tart $20 which was filo pastry filled with slow roasted tomato, sweet potato, red onion & zucchini topped with balsamic rocket leaves & capsicum coulis.

So it was third time lucky for The Generous Squire…and I can say I will be back for not just their drinks but also their food next time! But I think I’d just stick to their pub grub.

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.

    Waiting become such a relative thing. When in a rush, the food can’t come soon enough, but when you have nothing on after the meal, eh, it’s not a big deal.

    45 minutes is a while to wait though – in any case.

      I think it’s worse when you’re hungry and what’s served after waiting all that time is not as expected! And in my case I had to try to eat it all in 15 minutes to make it my meeting on time :( But yes completely agree, waiting when in a rush is completely different to waiting on the go.
