wrap of some of my favourite noodle places in Perth. Since the piece was published, there's been a bit of movement in some categories - Trang's Cafe in Girrawheen is now my go-to for pho dac biet, plus the discovery of house-made soba at Sasuke is an exciting development - but I still think the list makes for good reading.

Balingup Summer Long Table is little more than a week away, the (re)discovery of these images from lunch at Millbrook in March 2011 is a timely one. I remember being particularly impressed with that carrot centrepiece in the first shot.

I’ve been lucky enough to eat some great things in the line of duty this year. Here’s a dozen of the best (in a sort-of chronological order from latest to earliest, plus any relevant online links), starting in the top left corner and finishing in the bottom right.
- Impossibly fatty Geraldton yellowfin tuna belly nigiri at Miki’s Open Kitchen in Margaret River.
- Chase Kojima’s "tai-nori" uni sushi, as seen at the Sokyo sushi bar.
- Attica’s super-pretty (and super-delicious) broad bean flower, sheep’s milk yoghurt and pumpkin seed construct.
- The “sweet corn arrancini” at Torrisi Italian Specialties starring sweet corn, baby chives and a mochi made using Tamaki gold rice.
- Benu’s unbelievable lobster coral xiaolongbao.
- That brilliant smoked duck and barbecued cabbage one-two the crew at Momofuku Seiōbo were doing in the middle of the year.
- Thomas Lim’s scallop ceviche accessorised with fried Jerusalem artichoke and a sake vinaigrette (Goldie’s Los Angeles).
- All the Hainanese sticks at Shi Xiang Satay in Singapore’s wondrous Chinatown Food Complex.
- That legendary braised bone marrow you can enjoy at Lalla Rookh in Perth.
- The pork and bone marrow sate at Sate Plecing Arjuna in Denpasar.
- This year’s first taste of whitebait care of Chameleon, the in-house restaurant at the Intercontinental Wellington.
- The bargain-priced nasi Bali at Warung Liku.
