Truffle lunch @ Otis

Last month, along with my friend Michelle (of HerCanberra), we headed to a truffle luncheon at Otis who were offering 3 courses at $58 per person. It was a Saturday and there weren’t that many people dining in, so our food arrived reasonably quickly. Course 1 – truffled house made tagliatelle with parmesan. This was […] Read more…

The Farmhouse Restaurant at Pialligo Estate was recently renovated, (they knocked down a whole wall), to make the space inside a bit more spacious. It reopened for business and we booked in for a winter’s lunch with family. The new winter menu had just been introduced and I was really looking forward to it. To […] Read more…

iPho beef pho

Lunch @ iPho

iPho in Garema Place has opened up a second restaurant of the same name on the corner of Marcus Clarke and Rudd Street. This is great news given the limited amount of seating available at the Garema Place eatery. I’ve been to the new iPho twice now for lunch mainly because the Garema Place eatery […] Read more…

Cuppaflower totoro chiffon cakes

Brunch @ Cuppaflower (Sydney)

My friends and I had brunch at Cuppaflower in Sydney a couple of months ago. I had heard good things about the newish café but I must admit, I was there for the Totoro chiffon cakes! I could see them in the display window in two flavours – matcha and black sesame. There were also […] Read more…

The Duxton breakfast

The last time I dined at B-One Korean Restaurant in the city was probably 6 years ago. I’ve strolled past so many times and had been meaning to go back. After near the 100th time of passing by their advertised cheap $12 lunch specials, I finally walked in to try it out again. There were […] Read more…

Matcha Mylkbar matcha chicken burger

Lunch in Melbourne

Following on from my breakfasts, desserts and sweets in Melbourne posts, I’ve put together some lunches in Melbourne. Tipo 00 I’d heard good things about Tipo 00 and fortunately the restaurant was extremely close to my hotel. The restaurant was one of the few on my hit list that was still serving food around 2.30pm. […] Read more…

Natural Nine dumplings

9 Dish Roulette @ Natural Nine

*I was invited to dine at Natural Nine courtesy of the restaraunt, however all opinions are my own. Not long after a dinner degustation at Natural Nine, Casino Canberra’s renovated fine-dining restaurant, I heard news of its rebranding into a modern Asian eatery. I must admit the fine-dining theme didn’t do enough for me to […] Read more…
