Little Cultures, Subiaco

Little Cultures Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

lc 1

Little Cultures is a healthy superfood and dessert bar on Rokeby Road in the heart of Subiaco. If you are on a dairy free or paleo diet, there are plenty of options to choose from, and there is seating inside and on the pavement.
The menu consists of yoghurt bowls and smoothie bowls with all of the health freak ingredients like acai, goji berries and raw cacao. You can also order a smoothie to drink or for dessert a Hong Kong/Macao style egg waffle puff. The waffle puffs are a hexagon of bumpy puffy batter, dressed with all kinds of goodies like banana, strawberry and caramel.
You can also have the waffle puff folded into a cup and filled with ‘yolato’ or other goodies. Yolato is yoghurt gelato. I chose the strawberry fields waffle with coco yolato, nutella and whipped cream.

My partner chose the popcorn cookie party – with cookie crumbs, caramel and chocolate sauce, vanilla ice cream, and caramel popcorn.

Both were nice, I loved the eggy waffle, it was more interesting than a regular waffle. The yolato didn’t blow me a way, but the rest of the ingredients were good quality. After a while, I found the whole thing a bit sickly and it would have been nice to have a half serve. I would like to return to try some of the other offerings like the superfood bowls.

Satsuki, Subiaco

Satsuki Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

I love Satsuki, it is always consistently good. The menu is designed for sharing – tapas style, high quality, and not the standard Japanese fare. To have a reasonable sized dinner, I would recommend 6 dishes between two people. I would say that Satsuki’s signature dish is the spicy tuna tataki, which is always delicious. The menu has had a makeover in recent years, and we return again and again.

Fee Fi Pho Fum, Subiaco

Fee Fi Pho Fum Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

I found myself in Subiaco one lunchtime with an hour to kill and chanced upon Fee Fi Pho Fum, a Vietnamese cafe on the main Rokeby Road strip.

fee 1

The lady at the till greeted me warmly and gave me a menu which contained all of the vietnamese favourites – rice paper rolls, stuffed chicken wings, pho, bun, stir fries, fried rice, noodles and salads. There’s also jelly tea, coffee, and complimentary vietnamese highland tea at lunchtime.
I chose the vietnamese chicken salad, and I wasn’t disappointed. Lovely fresh tender chicken strips, coriander, mint, cabbage, carrot, and nuts along with a home made dressing. It was bright, zingy and thoroughly delicious. 

fee 2

Shortly after I arrived, the cafe filled up with local workers and is obviously a popular spot. They also serve dinner.
I was quite impressed with the serve yourself counter where you can get beansprouts, mint, chilli, and all of the other accompaniments for the soups. It’s nice to be able to take just what you need.

I’d like to go back to Fee Fi Pho Fum and try some of the other dishes. It was authentic and yummy – definitely worth a try.

Chutney Mary’s, Subiaco

Chutney Mary's Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

It’s been a while since I visited Chutney Mary’s which is one of the stalwart establishments in the heart of Subiaco on the corner of Hay Street and Rokeby Road.
The menu is a blend of traditional Indian fare with some specialities like goat curry. The staff were very welcoming and there were three of us dining on this occasion. After perusing the menu, we decided to go straight for main courses.
The portions were really generous too! We chose a king prawn masala, which was nice and spicy, with a great tomato flavour. The prawns were good but did taste frozen, and I think that fresh prawns would have made this really superb.

We also selected makhani dhal which was delicious. I would have liked more lentils though – the sauce was quite runny. It didn’t need the cream garnish.

2

The star dish for me was the kadhai chicken – lovely and rich with tomato and capsicum.

3

We also shared basmati rice – beautifully separate grains as you would expect from the rice-making experts, and a keema naan. The keema kept falling out of the naan, but it was very tasty nonetheless.

Our fellow diner chose a butter chicken. He’s from Mumbai and he craves this dish – he really enjoyed it. He also chose a butter naan. I didn’t try either of these because I prefer to avoid butter, but there’e no better recommendation than a man from Mumbai enjoying Indian food in Perth.

Chutney Mary’s has stood the test of time and it’s easy to see why. Great Indian food in a busy location, with some great lunch specials too – one of Subi’s best.
