Top 5 Perth Eats & News – May

May’s Top 5 Perth Eats is a combination of warm comfort foods and desserts. With the cooler weather now here I’m loving my comfort foods even more than usual and desserts are always a constant craving. 

Top 5 Perth Eats

#1 Osteria Dei Sapori’s Gnocchi Al Ragu’ Di Carne ($18) – the only gnocchi I’ve ever found remotely comparable to my Italian mother-in-law’s was from Must in Margaret River years ago so I was pretty excited to discover Osteria’s which is much closer to home. I loved that the sauce was richer and more intense in flavour compared to my mother-in-law’s which made it slightly different but still amazing in its own way. The gnocchi was soft and just melted on first bite. Plus I was surprised it was only $18…now I’m determined to find more Italian restaurants like Osteria Dei Sapori in Perth, I always thought quality authentic Italian food was a rarity in Perth but looks like you just have to look for it!

#2 The Honeycake – I was sent this amazing Honeycake to taste from Westfield City’s The Market. I loved the light honey flavour and the texture of the layers. Perfect with a morning or afternoon coffee :) I can’t wait to get my hands on some more!

You’ll find The Honeycake at Perth markets (check out their website to find out where), at a number of Perth cafes/shops including some my favs Uncle Joe’s Mess Hall and The House of Honey, and you can also order from them direct.

#3 West End Deli’s Gluten Free Raspberry Chocolate Cake - I was having coffee with my dear friend and gluten free blogger Martine of Chomp Chomp at West End Deli last month and we decided to share dessert. I don’t tend to pick the gluten free option when I’m out and about but I was glad the Raspberry Chocolate Cake was the only gluten free dessert available on the menu as it was AMAZING. It tasted like a cherry ripe and I’d happily eat it any day.

#4 Little Sisto’s Corn and Bacon Savory Loaf - I was tempted by the sweets in Little Sisto’s cabinet but this particular morning I had just eaten the honey cake before morning tea so I felt like something savoury. Little Sisto’s warm corn & bacon savoury loaf which I covered in butter was absolutely divine and hit the spot.

#5 Voyagers Estate’s Sparkling Red Grape Juice - I was sent Voyager Estate’s sparkling grape juice to taste and was excited that I was able to drink as many bottles as I wanted whilst pregnant :) They are non-alcoholic but made from the same grapes as the wines. The red grape juice is my favourite.

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.
