This time we visit Nasi Lemak Korner – Como. It has Malaysian taste. I came here with my husband and my two boys, they are really fans of Asian food. The place is nice and quite cozy. We order nasi goreng and nasi lemak. Those foods that we ordered are really nice. And for the drinks we ordered raspberry mocktail and three layer tea. Love them both. They sometimes have special menu and also special dessert. Lately i’d like to try their durian strudel, but you have to call them first to make sure they have it on the day.
Address : 18 Preston Street, Como, South Perth, Perth, WA

Three Layer Tea
Last Saturday me, my husband and Lola walking around Fremantle cafe strips. It was rainy day but we love rain so we just enjoy the walk. Lola a bit scared when she heard loud sound but it’s good to make her get used to with some loud sound and rain. We park near esplanade hotel then walk down the street toward Fremantle Market. Then turn right near hungry jacks. Fremantle was really nice place to walk along with your dog.
I ordered one mocha for me and one cappucino for my husband. We also had brunch there. We ordered smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel and also mashed avocado bagel. They are really nice especially the mashed avocado one. The cafe is lovely, really nice to hangout with your friends. It’s really suitable for breakfast and brunch. They have some variant of bagels, cakes and muffins in their menu. The price is reasonable. And the more important for us is we can bring Lola there, lol.
I really love the ambience in that place. I think i fall in love with hustle, lol. Think about having those little wood tables for my bedside. They really awesome. And they could be my food photo props as well, really handy to bring everywhere and use it as my background. They really are photogenic. I absolutely want to go back there again.

The mullets or grey mullets are a family (Mugilidae) and order of ray-finned fish found worldwide in coastal temperate and tropical waters, and in some species in fresh water. Mullets have served as an important source of food in Mediterranean Europe since Roman times. The family includes about 80 (at least 73) species in 17 genera, although half of the species are in just two genera (Liza and Mugil).
Mullets are distinguished by the presence of two separate dorsal fins, small triangular mouths, and the absence of a lateral line organ. They feed on detritus, and most species have unusually muscular stomachs and a complex pharynx to help in digestion.
