Those whose appetites are tickled by the tantalising taste of truffles (see story above) can find the delicacies in specially prepared dishes at Star Anise, The Loose Box, Jackson’s and The Gala Restaurant. Subject to extremely limited availability, of course.


Must Winebar already has 550 wines on its master list, so when the Mt Lawley venue decides it’s going to do something adventurous with wine, it’s usually right.

Russell Blaikie’s team felt a compulsion to offer punters a bit of a challenge following the success of their ‘Pinot Parade’ earlier in the year. So to extend Perth wine connoisseurs’ horizons even further, Must is extending its special wine weeks.

Next in line will be some Bordeaux beauties, ranging from succulent cabernets and merlots, through to inspiring semillons, and finally the haunting tastes of sauternes and Barsac.

Wines such as Rothschild Reserve Speciale Bordeaux Rouge 2002, Chateau Langoa Barton 1999 Saint Julien and Chateau Meyney 2000 Saint Estephe  will feature during the week from July 11 to 17.


Joe’s Oriental Diner at the Hyatt is spicing up Perth’s winter palates with the return of the Curries of the World.

Every Tuesday and Wednesday in July and August, the South-East Asian-style restaurant presents some of the international superstars on the world curry scene.

Malaysian vegetable curry, Sri Lankan seafood curry, Thai mussaman beef curry and Nepalese chicken simmered in yoghurt with coriander will all feature.

Five chefs from five different Asian countries will take turns presenting the best curries their cuisine has to offer.

With the menu changing weekly and standard items retained throughout, Joe’s can no doubt curry favour with everyone.
