Sayers Sister

It’s no surprise to spot a queue outside Sayer Sisters, one of Perth’s best brunch spots (the other fantastic one is Tuck Shop Café), located along Lake Street Northbridge. The interior itself is something to talk about, rustic and romantic at the same time. The vibes? Bustling!

I’ve heard a lot about Bali’s Dirty Duck, hence upon arrival, I told our driver that we would like to head to Bebek Bengil for lunch. Our driver recommended Bebek Tepi Sawah instead, a restaurant that serves the same quality fare, sans the hordes of tourists.
