Japanese catering and take-away shop in Subi-
aco, Nippon Fare has recently put brown rice
sushi on the menu. With a little more texture
than white rice, it's particularly delicious with
raw fish (try the salmon) and is fast becoming a
Scoop favourite. We are not alone, it is proving
a hit with Subi locals but they are going to have
to learn to share soon with a new Nippon Fare
shop soon to open in Shafto Lane in the city.
Look out for it around the end of June.
George s Meze Restaurant in Subiaco has re-
vamped its winter menu to place extra emphasis
on a bigger variety of meze (dishes that are slightly
larger than tapas) with such delights as rabbit
pie, smoked trout and dill dolmades and roasted
pumpkin and fetta keftedes. They take particular
pride in their moussaka, but what caught our eye
was the promise of belly dancing on Friday and
Saturday nights. Get to the Greek. George s Meze
Restaurant, 26 Denis St Subiaco. (08) 9388 1585.
Hay Shed happenings
The Hay Shed Deli Cafe in Wilyabrup -- always
a favourite because of its location right next to the
Hay Shed Hill cellar door -- has a new team mem-
ber in Luke Clarke, formerly at Clairault, who
returns to the region from a stint in the Pacific and
Tasmania. As well as the fabulously stocked cheese
and smallgoods deli and the scrumptious in-house
pizzas, Luke s new menu focuses on a variety of
seasonal dishes to share. Hay Shed Deli cafe is open
for breakfast and lunch daily from 9am. Harmans
Mill Road, Willyabrup, (08) 9755 6046.
THE STEAKS ARE HIGH(GATE) | Bid auf wiedersehen to cult German eatery Alt
Heidelberg and say g'day mate -- or should that be meat? -- to 283 Beaufort Street's newest tenant, the
prosaically named Beaufort Street Steakhouse. Only time will tell if it will ever rival the meaty goodness that
was the Turn 'N' Tender Steakhouse (these guys used to serve some serious slabs o'flesh one block down at
96 Beaufort Street) but carnivores will no doubt welcome the arrival of more meating places in the inner city.
283 Beaufort St, Highgate, (08) 9228 0888
LORETO LOUNGE « Taking over
the high-vis Northbridge corner where Vultures
Cafe once roosted is combined restaurant-cafe-
bar, Loreto Lounge. Chef Scott Lawrence's menu

West Australian produce while a strong local
flavour also permeates the wine list. Northbridge
residents and workers will also be interested to
know breakfast is also available. Corner William and
Francis streets, (08) 9425 5233, loretolounge.com.
Right in the heart of the CBD, located within
the Wesley Quarter, is the gorgeous Quarter
on Hay, specialising in modern European
cuisine. Chef Shannon Wilson is a Perth lad
who has been firing up the kitchens of
London for 10 years (he was head chef
for The Botanist in Sloane Square and at
Richard Branson s Babylon Roof Garden)

Bluewater Bar and Grill and Ecucina. While
the restaurant itself is a beautiful, sophisticated
space, with the feature wall of 3D cut-outs
based on the motifs in the windows in the
nearby Wesley Church, the food is also living
up to the promise of the surroundings,
garnering gushing reviews from food critics.
