A quaint cafe with restaurant quality Chef-prepared food
I went out with a friend for a late lunch early dinner at a cafe/restaurant in South Perth called "Hangout on Preston". I was a little disappointed when I arrived, as it seemed so small, much more like a casual cafe than the restaurant I had expected. However, I am happy to say that was the only disappointment I felt on the day.

There was street parking, which was pretty full when we arrived, so I was pleasantly surprised to see free parking next to the theatre, just a few metres away, which had plenty of empty spaces.

Once we were seated, I spotted the water with citrus slices and poured us a couple of glasses. I love water that is citrus tangy and this water hit the spot.

The menu was not large but pleasant enough I think to accommodate most peoples different taste preferences. We ordered the Salt & Pepper squid for a shared entree, which was so big we dare not finish it in case we couldn't fit in our main meal and a dessert. It was delicious and tender and was the perfect start to a great experience at this small quaint little spot.

We ordered the Barramundi and the Chicken Parmigiana for our mains. The Barramundi was sweet and perfectly cooked and the fresh accompaniments on the plate complemented the fish beautifully. The Chicken Parmigiana was also well cooked with a generous helping of ham, cheese and sauce, and we both thought our meals were chef-quality and the quantity was befitting a king.

After being super satisfied with our chef-quality meals so far, we decided to go for desserts and we were not disappointed. The pavlova was very fresh and just melted in the mouth and the mango sauce was tangy and delicious. The crepes were also a delicious treat and the combination of the sliced banana and blueberries were divine. We were glad we had them to finish off a lovely afternoon of eating indulgence.

Altogether, it was a surprisingly good meal out and I would definitely put this on the favourite map.

I'll have the left over salt & pepper squid Tania. Those deserts look almost worth a trip from Melbourne to indulge in.
