Neho Asian Tapas, East Victoria Park

Neho Asian Tapas Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Absolutely everything about Neho is fun. Booking is easy – online, no fuss, the wait staff are lovely, and the quirky signs and decor of the place puts you right into a carefree, fun state of mind before you even look at the menu.

The signs are great examples of how meaning gets ‘lost in translation’, and the owners have chosen some really funny illustrations of this.
Before ordering we were presented with a bowl of great crispy prawn crackers which had a superb intense flavour and got our tastebuds tingling. The drinks menu is full of wonderful choices and great cocktails – we chose a Great Southern Riesling which was apple-y, slightly smouldering and a little musty, a fine example of how many keynote flavours a Riesling can have and very good value for $11 – very very drinkable.

The menu is tapas style as the name of the restaurant suggests with small plates and large plates all designed for sharing. We really wanted to try everything, it all sounded so yummy, and there’s also a ‘feed me’ option where you can let the chef choose for you, but we plumped for 3 small dishes, a veggie dish and a main dish. The waitress thought we might not manage it all, but we decided to give it a go and get a doggie bag if we had leftovers.
The first dish to arrive was a duo of Macao pork sliders with Toasted Brioche, Crumbed Pork, Garlic Aioli, Pineapple Relish, Lettuce. They were really tasty, lovely tender pork and great aioli, and I did wonder if were going to manage all of the meal as they were very satisfying.

Next came the garlic tomyum prawns. Three giant prawns that had been split and grilled with a tomyum oil, coconut cream and herbs. So crispy and delicious that I ate some of the shell as well.

The meal was nicely paced and the wait staff held back on other items until we had finished what was on the table – I like this approach – much better than having a table full of food that you are racing to eat before it all gets cold.
The next dish was an absolute star – Folded Arms in Red Oil – Pork & Cabbage Dumplings, Szechuan Chilli Dressing, Chilli & Scallion. We could have eaten a trough of these – they were so good.

For the fourth dish we ordered Cauliflower goreng – Deep Fried Cauliflower, Pickle Shallots, Sambal Aioli, Pork Crackling. This was an absolute revelation. Who thought that cauliflower could taste so wonderful, and the crackling was beautifully crisp – probably my favourite dish of the evening.

The last dish was the signature 36 hour rendang ribs – 36 Hour Beef Short Ribs, Rendang Curry, Toasted Coconut. The waitress suggested a rice accompaniment which was perfect because we needed something to soak up the lovely rendang sauce. We were full, but couldn’t stop eating these amazing ribs – wow – what a dish.

We were really keen to try the desserts, but we simply had no room left in our tummies. We will be back to try the banana doughnut, the pandan panacotta or the creme caramel custard cake very soon. This is one of Perth’s finest – make sure you give it a try.

Sedap Place, East Victoria Park

Sedap Place Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

I wasn’t aware of Sedap Place until it came up on an Entertainment Book email, so I checked out the menu, it sounded good and we decided to give it a go. It’s on the main strip of Albany Highway among many other Asian restaurants. The menu is fairly typical Malaysian with favourites like laksa, nasi lemak, char kway teow, roti canai, and nasi goreng. I chose a lemon ice to drink, and we started with some spring rolls.

The achar pickle was a nice touch with the spring rolls.
For mains I ordered char kway teow and my companion ordered beef rendang but was told that he could only have the rendang as part of a nasi lemak. When he asked if he could have just the rendang and rice it seemed that the kitchen were unable to manage anything not on the standard menu. We also noticed that there were a lot of items on the menu marked as not available. He also asked for a mango smoothie….not available. Any other smoothie ?…..not available. He ended up having lemonade.

My char kway teow was nice and had all of the standard authentic features but could have done with some spice. A small pot of chilli oil or sambal would have been a good addition. I have eaten better c.k.t. in Perth.

The beef rendang was very tender, and the nasi lemak was good, but again could have done with some seasoning.
We probably won’t return to Sedap Place – it is fairly average, and the service is not the best. The nasi lemak arrived about 20 minutes ahead of the char kway teow, and it really shouldn’t be that difficult to coordinate two dishes being cooked together.

Tutti Frutti, East Victoria Park

Tutti Frutti Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

If you want a dessert, Tutti Frutti is a frozen yoghurt bar with some interesting flavours and a toppings bar that will please children and adults alike. What you have to do is choose an appropriate size cup – strangely they didn’t have any small – they all seemed to be large or ginormous !

Then you go to the dispensers at the wall and choose your froyo flavours. I chose coconut and strawberry, but there were plenty of other flavours like green tea, soy peanut butter, salted caramel, berries, chocolate, vanilla, lychee etc.
Next you choose toppings and sauces from the toppings bar where you can choose honeycomb, cookie dough, fruits, jazzies, jellies etc.

Then you get the resulting sundae weighed and end up paying about $11 for it !
No wonder they don’t have small cups. The sundaes were very enjoyable, and it’s a nice dessert option, especially a favourite with children because they can design their own dessert.
