Last Thursday, I went out with Joe, Frances and their relatives (Uncle Klass & Aunt Patricia) from Holland. They came to Perth for a short holiday together to celebrate their wedding anniversary. How sweet. :)
We went to the famous French restaurant Bouchon Bistro in Wembly. Frances' friends have been recommending this place a lot and I saw some good reviews too. So we were all eager to try.
Inside was decorated with all kinds of posters and pictures from France. Very cool. and lots of french wine too!
That day was pretty busy for the staff, so the service was a bit slow.. we waited about 15 minutes and asked for menu, and about 20 minutes to order our food. I was hungry and feeling a lil annoyed cuz it was 8pm at night. But everything went okay after eating :)
They served us some bread and butter for starters.
and this.. I forgot what it is.. :P but very tasty

As usual, I was busy taking photos when the food arrived. Frances and Joe had to explain to them that I'm a *cough*food*ekhem* blogger, I always take photos on anything and everything and will blog about it. It's good that they don't mind while taking photos of the food all night, cuz some of my friends does, they will laugh at me even! But it's okay.. I don't mind being the weird one once a while~ creates topics anyway haha! While I was taking photos, uncle took out his camera, start taking photos too! Join the fun uncle! Snap! snap!
