The Food Project: Mashawi Moroccan & Middle Eastern

There’s no need for any preamble here, so I’m just going to come out and say it – Mashawi Moroccan & Middle Eastern is, hands down, one of my favourite Perth restaurants.

In a gorgeous space with high ceilings and a great big wooden feature wall, in a prime spot on Mt Lawyley’s Beaufort Street, with very attentive staff, a large menu and SO MANY absolutely delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes, there really is a lot to love here.

Mashawi is a friendly and unpretentious spot – high ceilings, large windows looking out over Beaufort Street, bright decorative touches including recurrent pomegranate motifs. The tables are a little on the small side (especially when you want to try as much from the menu as possible) but the place regularly gets booked out, resulting in a lively and eclectic atmosphere.

The Eisteddfod review + Coma Land giveaway

Thanks to Black Swan State Theatre Company, I have a double pass to giveaway to their latest production, Coma Land, on Thursday 20 July 8:00pm in the Studio Underground of the State Theatre Centre. More details on how to win below!

The Eisteddfod

Descend into the Studio Underground at the State Centre Theatre of WA and enter the bizarre, darkly funny and confronting world of Melbourne playwright Lally Katz’s The Eisteddfod.

After brother and sister Gerture and Abalone are left orphaned following a ‘pruning accident’, the pair retreat into their own world, agoraphobic, starved of human interaction and clinging to each other with both hope and resentment.

So You Think You’re Charlie Smith review

How much of what we see on reality television is actually real? We all know that there’s more to ‘reality’ than what we see on the screen, but we still need to question whether situations are contrived, if outcomes have been manipulated, and how the raw footage has been edited to create entertainment.

These issues are under the spotlight in the theatrical work So You Think You’re Charlie Smith.

The Food Project: Eat the Street Walking Tours

A few weeks ago, I was invited along to experience all that Eat The Street has to offer with an awesome bloggers brunch – if you follow me on Instagram, you would’ve seen all the amazing food we got to eat, but I wanted to share a few more details about the day.

Eat The Street offer unique walking tours of Perth that give you the opportunity to eat some of the city’s best food at a range of impressive locations. Forget boring, stuffy tours crammed with irrelevant historical facts and generic touristy venues, these tours are laid back, fun, and most importantly, put a huge emphasis on amazing food.

Fringe World 2017: Cameron James ’88 review

With a background in music and sketch comedy, Cameron James has the guts and the experience to hit the mark as a relaxed, laid back stand-up comedian with his debut comedy hour at Fringe World.

CamJam, as he is known online, has achieved a lost since I last saw him in as part of the duo Jekyll x James at Fringe World two years ago – placing second in Triple J’s RAW Comedy National Final, he has toured national as a support for well-known Australian and international comedians and was hand-picked to perform at Splendour in the Grass.

Fringe World 2017: Jacque Barrett is Particularly Good at This review

Smart and charismatic comedian Jacques Barrett is a veteran of the Australian club and festival circuit, with almost a decade of shows under his belt –  making his ‘Particularly Good at This’ a funny Fringe trip not to be missed.

Well-paced and consistently on the mark, this ridiculously fun hour is filled with character renditions, strong performance skills and social commentary that captures the audience’s full attention and refuses to let it go.

Fringe World 2017: Yeti’s Demon Dive Bar review

Welcome to Yeti’s Demon Dive Bar – the sleaziest, dingiest dive bar in town and home to a truly bizarre set of characters guaranteed to have you laughing through an hour of no-holds-barred, rollicking and risqué musical sketch comedy.

The seasoned (yet surely slightly mad) geniuses behind EastEnd Cabaret – Jennifer Byrne and Vicky Falconer-Pritchard, together with Tom Velvick of Dead Man Creative – have returned to Perth, where the mop-headed madness began, for a disappointingly short run of Yeti’s Demon Dive Bar.
