Our flight was at 2 am the next morning, so we actually have a full day in Perth. Squeezing in as much as we could, we ticked off another must-go breakfast place in the city. It was Sayers Sister in Northbridge (236 Lake St) this time. Highly recommended. Being foodies that we are, we met Ann again for brunch. We were really late when we got there as the GPS was totally unreliable, making us park so far away, right in Northbridge itself and we had to walk for 15 minutes to get to the café. Be prepared to wait for a table especially on weekends as there is always a queue. It was well worth the wait for a table. By then, we were souper douper hungry and ordered lots this time. The food was amazing.
It was the first time I had cauliflower rice and I absolutely fell in love it. Loving it so much that I decided to actually put it on our menu but mixed in with quinoa.
We had coffees while the kiddos sipped on their juices. Conversations were intense as we try to catch up with all the happenings around us. Isn’t it interesting that although we stayed in the small city we have to do our catching up in Perth. Such are the idiosyncrasies in life.
Uncle Frank, an avid recreational fisherman, invited us for a fun afternoon at Woodman Jetty. Activity: to catch scallops. His friend is a pretty good diver and would go on fishing trips in Exmouth. In Perth, the world is indeed your oyster, or abalone. With a permit, you are allowed to catch seafood in a sustainable manner. There are size requirements and you are not allowed to break this law. They even have peeps from the Fishery Department on patrol at the jetties and at places they know are popular with amateurs. I heard that they would check your catch of the day with measuring tapes!
For a half an hour dive, we went home with 60 scallops. Not shabby at all!
What is an Aussie holiday without some Aussie barbie? If it was one thing we loved it is family barbecues. This was what we had, a night filled with laughters around the barbie, with good friends and family, fresh produce, fresh meats and seafood. Find out more of my ideas and tips on barbecues here.
What a great way to end our Perth holiday! Thank you for your hospitality, for the wonderful time, the inspirations, the campervan adventures and the beautiful people we have met. May our paths cross again!
