The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Perth eats: homecooked, takeaways and foodstall food

We're back in Tokyo after a great time in Perth. Bub had plenty of playmates and willing babysitters during that 10 days, and that is definitely something I will miss having. Rob and I went on our very first dinner date in more than 6 months since Zak was born, and it certainly was nice to have plenty of "me" time. Anyway, as usual, we ate lots of good food, and this post features some of the meals we had at people's homes or in very casual dining. I have so many photos to wade through, so please forgive the lack of detailed description.

Lunch at a Malaysian foodstall in Wanneroo Market, a few hours after arriving in Perth: Chaitaukueh, Charkueyteow, Nasi lemak and Horfun. Not really anything special - I reckon my dad makes nicer chaitaukueh (and Rob even reckons the one we made was better than this one), and you can get much better noodles at Malaysian Gourmet in Nedlands.:

Home-made Salmon Salad with delicious honey citrus dressing made by Rob's sister's husband; homecooked Greek meal consisting of Tava (lamb casserole with tomatoes, onion and potatoes) and Salad with feta and olives, prepared by my Greek stepmum-in-law; Baked Chicken Thighs prepared by my older sister; and waffles and ice-cream from Gelare on 1/2-price Tuesdays:

Chicken Kebab, a takeaway from a Turkish shop in Canningvale Market; and takeaway chooks and chips from Red Rooster:

Keep posted for more to come...
