The Gaya Applecross

Hmm... Korean Food... I am a sucker for Korean food. I decided we would try this restaurant in Perth and here is my verdict:


I found out when we got there that the restaurant promises that there are no MSGs in their foods. Awesome! While we were making up our minds about what to order, they also gave us this complimentary dish of mini pancakes and what tasted like cheese puffs.


I personally am not a fan of their pancakes. The cheese puffs though, was delicious!

We decided to order four dishes to try. One entre (Japchae) and three mains (The Gaya Bulgogi, 36 Pork and Kalguksoo).

Entre: Japchae
Now I've had Japchae before at a few different restaurants and it's one of my favourite Korean dishes. This one surprised me in that it's wrapped in some sort of pancake. I really liked that! It added a crispy element to each bite which was refreshing!

The Gaya Bulgogi
Bulgogi is the standard dish I always try at Korean restaurants. Purely because it's commonly available. The Gaya's version has more soup than ones I usually eat but the taste is beautiful. Plus, the butter on the rice added that extra flavour that I craved after tasting the bulgogi soup. I would go back just to eat this.

Kalguksoo
Hmmm... I love anything with red sauce! Though I am no good at spicy foods haha. This dish had a very mild spicy taste. Love the noodles, love the fresh king prawns. Yum.

36Pork
I have to admit I was sceptical about 36Pork. Fusion dishes are usually not-so-great for me. However, this pork was so so so tender and smooth! The apple and cinnamon refreshes the mouth after the greasy pork.

Side Dishes at The Gaya Applecross
Side Dishes
A Korean feast is never complete without side dishes. Every main meal at The Gaya Restaurant came with a plate like the photograph above. From left to right, the dishes are pickled celery, pancake, apple kimchi. I personally absolutely hate celery but I decided to give this pickled celery a go anyway. I still hate it but this was the most bearable experience of eating celery. The pancake was cold and again, not really a fan of their pancake. The apple kimchi though, YUMMMM. It reminded me of an Indonesian dish we call "Asinan". I think I can eat a whole tub of that.
Nezuki at The Gaya Applecross
Nezuki, my partner in crime.
Food is more enjoyable when you have someone to share it with. This time, surprise surprise, I had the pleasure of dining with the awesome Ness from Nezuki.com! What is it with us and food? haha!

The Gaya Restaurant
The Gaya Applecross
The atmosphere in the restaurant was nice, though nothing super special. Just nice for a casual gathering with family and friends.

The prices were a little high - around $25-$30 per main dish. Though the portion sizes were huge! I thought, with the amount of food we ordered, we could've fed two more people. For the four dishes we ordered, it totalled to $100. If four people were dining, that's $25 a head - not too bad for Korean food though it's not the cheapest either.

Another thing I always cringe when eating out is parking space. The Gaya Applecross is located directly behind Gelare and shares parking spaces with other businesses around it. The spaces were full even though it was on a Wednesday night. Though I was really lucky to find a parking spot pretty much as soon as I got to the area.

All in all, I was quite happy with the food and service. Especially that it's MSG free! I would definitely go back to eat there.

NEZUKI is a Periwinkle Girl

Ness (a.k.a Nezuki, fashion blogger) and I went out to get some lunch a few weekends ago. What happens when Ness and I meet? We take photos. I mean, what do you expect when a fashion blogger and a photographer become good friends and meet every now and then?

What she picks out are always candy to my eyes and this time it's no exception. Love the colour. Love the style. Not for me, but I think the outfit totally suits her! Being her photographer always a fun activity for me.


I love her magenta hair against the periwinkle colour and that greenery in the background just made this picture for me I think. Most importantly though, her smile! How genuinely happy does she look? I love it.


Fun photos with light posts on the road...




Ness also got a ton of complements on her shoes while we walked around that day so we wanted to make sure it was photographed.


Oh yes, we got lunch at Typika and I wondered where has this been all my life???
French toast with banana, caramelised bacon, and salted caramel sauce. Oh My...
