Wait until April

Posted March 4th, 2010 in Perth WA 6 Comments »

It’s been soooo… hot  🙁  Summer is not my season, I’m so weak against the heat and my body has been really weird.  Headache, sleepy, tired, and annoyment…   I go out for walking in the evening so that I can feel cool air on my face and body.

I have been planning to go to Tenkadori in Subiaco (please see the comments on my old post) to try their yakitori, but I heard that they are still not opened at night.

I could talk to the head chef in this restaurant.  He told me that the boss (owner) is currently in Japan, and they are still waiting for the liquor license to be approved.  All the equipments and menu has been organised already, and they assume they will get the liquor license very soon.  So, they will start opening at night with Yakitori menu after the boss comes back (after 8th of March)

Too bad, I will be in Japan by then.  Well, I will go there after I come back to Perth :p

I was thinking which Japanese restaurant I should go to with my friend. Then I thought “hey I’m going to Japan in few days.  Maybe I shouldn’t go to Japanese restaurant in Perth.  I can enjoy lots of nice food in Japan.”  That is true…  I guess I will postpone the night out and try Tenkadori after April.

    There’s a cute little cafe in Marmion St, Melville called Blend. If you want to eat out something that isn’t Japanese but very yummy, you should try there. We totally love the salt & pepper squid and believe me, we have been looking for a long time for somewhere that does this well.
    I agree, you should wait till you go to Japan to eat amazing Japanese food. Although, have you been to Ohnamiya in Applecross? It’s simple, but you can’t beat it for freshness and authenticity.

    Hi Megan,

    I didn’t know about this place “Blend”. Is it a Chinese style cafe? I would like to try the salt&pepper squid ! 🙂

    Yes I’ve been to Ohnamiya. The food is nice and I like the restaurant. But, I just have to compare the price with Japan.. :p

    I will wait to eat Japanese food until I go back to Japan.

    Hi Ume,

    Blend is a cafe & pizza bar. They serve all types of food and have a pizza oven. The coffee is great too! It is at 356 Marmion St, Melville. You don’t have to book and they are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week, I think.

    You’re so lucky going back to Japan. I wish it was me!

    Have you been to Japan? I’m getting excited about seeing my family (^^)

    Hi Ume

    Yes, my husband and I went to Japan for the second time together in September/October last year. You can check it out on our blog. My husband speaks Japanese. He was a Japanese teacher for most of his career, but he has now changed jobs. I’m not sure how many times he has been there – about 15, I think. We are in love with Japan and want to go and live there. We just don’t know how that will ever happen though ;-(.
