It Just Has To Be Delicious

My House Dumpling, Leederville

We stumbled across this Taiwanese venue when looking for somewhere to eat on a Friday after work. Most venues were not quite open yet, but My House was already buzzing with plenty of reserved tables. It stands on Oxford Street on the site where Low Key Chow House used to be. The lovely gentleman in charge of front of house found us a table and explained the dumpling serving sizes and the technology to order them. They give you a tablet device to peruse the menu and order which is fun and a good way to make sure that you get the order right.

The range of dumplings is extensive, and you can choose from various fillings. We chose the famous xiao long bao – juicy pork soup dumplings and were advised to dip them in the vinegar sauce that is provided on the table. They tasted amazing and we were helpfully given a spoon to help with eating them.

We also chose spicy kimchi and beef boiled dumplings. Again delicious.

We chose a few non-dumpling dishes – a fried kueh teow with chicken, very authentic with the lovely smoky wok flavour running through it.

Then some spring rolls with crab and prawn, which were served with a sweet chilli sauce – very moreish.

We left feeling very satisfied and as we paid the man gestured towards the owner who was busy hand making all of the dumplings. The dumplings may not be as perfectly uniform as the restaurants where they buy them in (probably frozen), but they are certainly very tasty and you can tell the difference in the freshness. This restaurant is well worth a visit for the tastiest dumplings in town and the friendliest service.

Sandalford Estate, Caversham

Sandalford Estate Restaurant Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Sandalford is one of the best known Swan Valley vineyards, with quite an impressive land area and a lovely cellar door and restaurant area.

The menu is modern Australian, and the drinks menu contains every drink that you could imagine along with the selection of Sandalford wines of course. As it was lunchtime and several of us were driving, we didn’t go for a full wine tasting on this occasion.

Everything on the menu looked appetising and it was hard to choose, but eventually I went for the Exmouth tiger prawns salad with orzo pasta. This was absolutely delicious, great quality fresh prawns and really good flavours throughout.

My partner chose the pork belly with watermelon, radish and sherry vinegar. The pork was nicely cooked and the sweet melon offset the vinegar. A great plate.

We shared some sides of salad leaves and fried royal blue potatoes – all very tasty.

One of our friends chose the lamb shank with roasted eggplant, carrot, feta and date relish, and soft herbs. He loved the texture and flavours, and said that he would choose it again.

Another friend chose the pizza with prawns, nduja (pork sausage spread), zucchini and mozzarella. All pizzas are hand made fresh in a dedicated pizza oven and this one was as delicious as it looked.

Another winning dish consisted of figs with orange, heirloom carrots and caramelised nuts (entree size).

Desserts were spectacular and included a chocolate cube with tonka bean gelato:

A bomboloni Italian doughnut with coffee Frangelico semi freddo, macadamia and white chocolate:

A cassata of raspberry, coconut and mango:

A coconut gelato with berries and melon:

Everything we ate at Sandalford was delicious, the setting was great and it was a very relaxed lunch. Will definitely return.
