{ YUM! } Sayers Sister

A celebratory lunch date to Sayers Sister with my bestfriend last week after my final exams! I've been meaning to try the food at this place for a while now since I've read quite a few awesome reviews, seen a ton of mouth-waterin' photos plus I love the food at Sayers which is their Leederville counterpart.

When you enter the cafe, you're greeted with an amazing decor- vintage elegance I like to call it. I love every detail they've put into this place, from the quirky ornaments, lux glass cloches, velvety glam couches and the beaten-down rustique walls.

Both the bestie and I ordered the same dish- chorizo and corn croquettes! The croquettes at Sayers Leederville is absolutely delicious so I really had to try the ones at Sayers Sister, and the fact chorizo was also in the dish was a major plus!

Corn and Chorizo Croquettes on a bed of blanched spinach and salsa topped with fresh rocket. 

Soo so yummy! Great crunch to the croquettes and not drenched with oil luckily! I really liked how not only were there slices of chorizo on the plate but also cubed chunks in the croquettes. The freshness of the salsa and vegies really made the dish a delight to eat as well. I think this dish was around the $17 mark which is not too bad. Only downside I would say about the dish is the lack of seasoning in the croquette mix. I'm actually not 100% sure if the filling was mash potatoes like traditional croquettes or something else. It tasted a little sweet, almost like there was a mix with sweet potatoes.

Overall an impressive dish with wonderful ingredients! I would definitely return to Sayers Sister to try more of their dishes- possibly their breakfast menu next time : )

I've only been to Sayers Sister once so I really can't compare it to Sayers in Leedy. Although, when it comes to interior and ambience, Sayers Sister definitely trumps Sayers!

On a random note, I just finished watching season 1 of Once Upon A Time in like 3 days or so *cheers to the freakin' holidays!*. I know season 2 has already started but I'm waiting for the bf to finish exams so we can watch it together! Apparently Mulan will appear in season 2 which will be portrayed by Jamie Chung!! Cannot wait!

Holidays are partly for discovering and catching up on my favourite tv shows. I'm currently watching around 9 different shows I think? #yeahimmatvjunkie. I recently started watching Scandal too and omgosh I'm hooked! Any suggestions for great tv shows?
