Two more sleeps...

Until Japan, this food blog might end up starting off there instead.

Have been feeling much distracted and have this work colleague who actively food blogs. I just don't seem to have the energy after eating to blog about it. Hopefully the transit times while on train in Japan could mean I can blog a few times.

Korean BBQ Chapter 1

I seem to eat a lot at Korean BBQ restaurants. To name a few based in Perth: (not in order of preference or quality. Mind this is just a list.)

  • Seoul Korean BBQ (William St, Perth)
  • Arirang Korean BBQ (Barrak St, Perth)
  • Shilla Korean BBQ (Royal St, East Perth)
  • Took Bae Kee  or Took Begi - original (Pier St, Perth)
  • Took Bae Kee or Took Begi 2 (Barrack St, Perth)
  • Dae Jang Geum (Francis St, Perth)
  • Hana Korean BBQ (Mt Pleasant; the Northbridge one closed down)
  • Cora Korean BBQ (Applecross)
  • Ninniku Jip (Albany Hwy, East Victoria Park)
  • Tong 86 (Beaufort St, Northbridge)
  • Seoul Korean BBQ & Steamboat (Albany Hwy, East Victoria Park)
Ok that's the best list I could come up with. I think there's only 3 there I haven't tried yet. So I'll do individual reviews of the ones I have shortly. We'll start with my most often visits and then organise to re-visit the other ones before posting a review. 

Oh and I'll learn how to link posts and update links later too.

Intro: nekomancy's new food porn blog

Many people would Google up restaurants or cafe names, cuisines and recipes, chefs and novice cooks and avidly read what some would now term: "food pornography".

This is not only one neko's journey through the various foods and coffees of Perth, Western Australia. If you need to google this place you're outa luck of actually eating here. The trip over to our remote little island coast could be quite costly.

I'll try to make the journal interesting with amateur photos, snide commentary, cooking tips and criticisms - even some research into the techniques, but I can't really guarantee a master-piece by any stretch of imagination. Hopefully I can help you feed your inner foodie or give you a pleasant food pornography journey to tickle a guilty pleasure node or two.

Where do I start?

I love eating out and I really like cooking for friends and family. Not so adventurous now with home cooking, since I've basically found places I'm fond of and return often to the same places... This blog will also help me look for new venues, discover what's new or old around in Perth which I haven't tasted.

I normally spend almost 3-4 days a week out at various restaurants and cafes. Friends have told me to set a food blog up and really spend more time writing about the foods I've tried and the ideas I have for recipes. I've just been too lazy, Twitter has totally stalled my literary abilities and Facebook only helps me whinge or gloat about what I'm eating - with iPhone pictures. Yes, I take the amateur photos with iPhone 4. They'll get better once I learn to use technology I'm sure.

So I'll be starting with a number of the places which I usually go and love... the first few posts will not have "dates" of attendance but just photos, general comments and review.
