A Green Day - The Raw Kitchen



Prior of going to The Raw Kitchen. I was very sceptical about going to a vegan or raw food place.Personally I am not into those foods, when I was young; I never liked vegetables much. I’ve always love my meats.

I met up with my previous co-workers, which I haven’t seen for a while. One of them is a vegan and the other one said had you been to The Raw Kitchen? So we venture out to Fremantle, parking is easy on a Sunday. There is the multi storey car park just around the corner to it. 


Inside The Raw Kitchen the deco is very earthy. 

The waitress greeted me and showed me to the table. I was given the menu. I was thirsty so I ordered a Summer Green - Organic spinach, cucumber, mango, mint, lemon, dates, $9.50. It tasted very green, the price is a bit steep.




As for mains, we ordered the Warm winter pizza - sweet potato, apple sauerkraut, preserved lemon, cinnamon oil and spring onion $24 
I like the base of the pizza, it tasted very good.  




The Yellow coconut curry - spicy Margaret river tempeh, broccoli, sweet potato, sugar snap peas, crispy shallots, lime, fresh chili; coriander with a side of quinoa $25 
I like the coconut curry its to my liking.


 


Live zucchini pasta with tomato pasta sauce, avocado, mushroom, Kalamata, olives, basil, Parmesan and; crack black pepper $23
It tasted very good indeed quite surprising.


After having a meal at The Raw Kitchen, my thoughts on their food -food was very tasty surprisingly and I am very open to going back there again. Even I was feeling full, it wasn't the sensation that you feel like you are sickly full on your normal meals.

The taste that lingers – Nobu



Three years ago today, 19 Nov we were at Crown watching Eddie Izard. He was funny and that’s was the first time that we been out. It was a fun evening going out.

Anyway, Mr. S picked the restaurant in the Crown venue. It was Nobu is famous for their fusion of Japanese and South American style by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa.

I had been trying to get a reservation for the last few times but they are full on most Saturdays.

Finally, I am in Nobu the restaurant that I've wanted to try for a while. We were greeted at the door by 2 waitress, we were taken to the table and seated. I find that the cushiony seats is bit too low for me, hence I swapped with Mr. S to sit on his chair. He even said that the cushiony seats are a bit low; hence he put a cushion on his bottom to lift him up a bit.

We were greeted by the cocktail waiter who showed us the wine and cocktail list. We both ordered 2 glasses of Sparkling Rose. I really liked it.

Then we were greeted by an Asian waiter he showed us the menu. He informed us about the specials and also suggested what we can order in sequence. That was a good suggestion.

We ordered the dishes below:

Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno $26


This is the taste that lingers it taste so good and I can still taste it next day in my taste buds. This is a must order dish from Nobu.

New style sashimi, white fish $21


Dry Miso Octopus $24


Seared Scallop with JalapeƱo Salsa $26


Specialty Tempura Ebi, Hotate and Nasu Hasamiage $25
