Coin Laundry

tucked away in the chichi-lala suburb of Armadale is Coin Laundry
what drew me in was (apart from the name and the constant stream of happy eaters)
their MOVEMBER displays!

don’t hang your dirty laundry … no wait that’s kinda cool!

for many, many years the same spot use to be a coin laundry,
it’s quite poetic to salvage a remnant of local history
and also I’m sure the local customer base would be used to saying
‘hey so I’ll meet you around the corner at the coin laundry’!

in keeping with the theme of a laundromat the cafe is large and airy
with open brick walls and concrete flooring

cute green tile details!

this was so fresh! mmm

Gewurzhaus

 Spice house in German, Gewurzhaus is like a modern zouk of salts and spices,
packed with freshly baked goodies, retro kitchen trinkets and utensils in vibrant colours

For the epicurious and those who have come to appreciate the finer details in life,
Gewurzhaus is the mecca to visit!

I loved the patterned tiles!

I went away with a lot of things I wanted to google about,
such as what would I do with a big slab of this :

A huge Himalayan salt block!

Apparently you’d heat up the slab and cook thin slices of meat, fish or vegetables on top
or it could be chilled and used as a serving plate for anything ranging from
cheese to sushi!
What a creative idea for restaurants!
My mouth is watering from the prospect of thin slices of wagyu beef simmering on top….

A little trivia! Himalayan salt is considered the cleanest, purest form of salt in the world,
Reaped from the Himalayan mountain range the salt is sheltered from pollution & impurities

I had no idea there were so many different types of salts!
Being quite the little oenophile I was very drawn to the vintage merlot salt … mmm .

 
the sacred wall of spices
how can one resist ….

I love these restaurant stamps! Some were hilarious~

every household needs a vintage scale and some apothecary inspired bottles!
