Perth – Citadines St Georges Terrace Perth

We stayed at the Citadines St Georges Terrace Perth, a service apartment, when we returned from our grand 5 day holiday in Margaret River. There are lots of options for accommodations in Perth city. One of the options was the service apartment/business hotel Citadines St Georges Terrace Perth, which we eventually settled for for the following reasons.


  1. Walking distance to Perth city centre – Where the shopping malls and car free zones are located (Hay Street / Murray Street). And also where the Perth Underground is located, for easy train access to numerous parts of Perth and beyond. There are also numerous eateries within 2 or 3 minutes walk from the apartment, as well as a supermarket about 5 minutes walk away.
  2. Along the CAT transport zone There are four CAT buses that ply the city centre for free, stopping at major places of interest. Interestingly, even if you board a normal bus, it’s free as long as you get on and off within the city zone limits.
  3. Service apartment amenities – It’s always such a convenience to have cooking facilities within the apartment because it means you can buy up delicious and beautiful local produce at farmers markets and cook them yourself! Particularly useful for us after amassing lots of goodies from our 5 day stay in food and wine paradise Margaret River.

The Chop House (I12 Katong)

Finally blogging about the last tasting session that I went for prior to popping! I’d been to the 1st Chop House at Vivocity and I was looking forward to the same meat fest at the new Katong outlet to load up on my iron levels. The Chop House is renown for its generous meat dishes, which is not surprising since it is owned by the same people who own Wooloomooloo at Raffles City.

However the restaurant was keen to showcase its new or lesser known dishes, which turned out to be a good thing because they have some gems that are really worth highlighting to you guys out there. With a name like The Chop House, you wouldn’t be faulted for thinking that they specialise in meats, which they do, but they also have numerous “cafe” dishes as well.

The Chop House - Churros $6

For one, if you’ve been trying to find the best churros in Singapore, you might just want to pop by The Chop House. At $6 for 6 pieces of crispy on the outside and slightly under-baked on the inside to give a somewhat creamy texture, this must surely be one of the most value-for-money churros around. Also comes with a generous portion of chocolate or creme anglaise sauce.

The Chop House - Aussie Burger $24

This beautiful well done Aussie Burger $26++ would also be a recommendation of mine. Any burger with a sunny side up is a winner in my opinion! Plus the sweet onion jam and beet root added extra moisture and sweetness to the burger which I liked very much. Just don’t order it well done like I did, which I had to since I was pregnant. Medium-well should suffice for burgers.
