Perth Day 6 – Part 2 Acacia Apartment & Sorrento restaurant

When we decided to go to Perth we searched the internet for an apartment to stay in. Our requirements were a two bedroom/two bathroom apartment since there were 4 adults and 1 child in our group. We found what we were looking for at City West accomodations. We chose this apartment because of it’s location and bus accessibility.

Mounts Bay rd. where our apartment was located on a nice street lined with a hospital and several apartment buildings and hotels. The Philippine consulate was a few buildings away.

We were quite pleased with this apartment although we liked rooftop apartment in Margaret River more because it was way roomier.

Warren, hubby of Rochelle met us in Perth. Aww touching reunion.

I found the parking system in Perth fascinating. Whether we parked in an open lot, street parking or a parking building we never saw a human being manning the ticket booth like in Manila. Instead we faced all kinds of machines to pay our ticket. We stared at this machine for a while before we got the hang of it.

When my friends found out I was going to Perth they kept telling me there’s nothing to do there and nowhere to eat. I guess they haven’t been to Perth in a long time because there were many places to see and even more restaurants to try. For our 1st dinner we went to Northbridge which was only a few minutes away from our apartment. I was surprised to see 3 streets lined on both sides with restaurants representing every conceivable cuisine.

We chose to eat in Sorrento an Italian restaurant because it had a lot of people eating there. So we figured it must be good. We were right.


We sat outside to enjoy the cool air. Thank goodness there was a gas heater beside our table.

Garlic Bread A$6.00


Oysters Kilpatrick A$16.00

Sorrento special sauce


I just loved the lamb chops. The servings were generous too. If you ordered lamb chops in Manila you’d get 3 skinny chops. Here we got 3 triple chops!

Corona di Agnello A$37.00
Lamb rack served with mashed potato,
spinach, mushroom & red wine jus

Everything we ordered was good specially this risotto which was perfectly cooked and chunks of mushroom.

    I agree that the lady from http://www.stayinwa.com was a grouch but I disagree about the cleanliness. I didn’t notice anything dirty unless you cleaned it before I saw it? =-X You just hated the fisher and paykel dishwasher bec. didn’t clean well.
