Baked goods @ DOJO Bread

One sunny Saturday morning, J and I went for a drive out to Braidwood and stopped in at DOJO Bread, a local favourite bakery tucked away from the main street. Just past the Braidwood Bakery and behind Eureka Pizzeria, you’ll find a small cottage where DOJO Bread is located. The bakery is tiny and could […] Read more…

Lunch @ Nutrition Station

A new eatery focused on healthy food, Nutrition Station, has opened in Braddon. This used to be a small shop inside Fitness First in the Canberra Centre, and has now expanded to its own separate cafe.

Vegetarian @ Au Lac

The last time I dined at Au Lac in Dickson was for Chinese New Year about two years ago. I can’t believe it’s been that long. Being one of the most popular vegetarian restaurants in Canberra, I was happy to go back. I noticed the restaurant has had a bit of a revamp including new […] Read more…

Walking through the tight alleys in the undercover area was […] Read more…

Lebanese cuisine @ La Mono

La Mono in Braddon offers a variety of Lebanese cuisine and charcoal chicken. My first thought was that it was great to see the eatery had thought about ventilation with the kitchen’s smoky BBQ pit sealed off from the rest of the restaurant so we didn’t leave with a smoky smell on our clothes. The […] Read more…

Eating in Japan- Koyasan (Mt Koya)

Following on from Eating in Japan – Osaka, we travelled to Koyasan (Mt Koya) to stay overnight at a temple on the mountain.

We enjoyed […] Read more…

$20 lunch plate @ Wood & Coal

I hadn’t been to Wood & Coal for a few years (since 2014!). I had passed by one day and saw a sign for a $20 lunch plate which sounded good to me, plus I was starving, and decided to dine in. There was a choice of house wine, beer or soft drink included so […] Read more…
