Pho

Vietnamese @ Pho Phu Quoc

I’ve dined at Pho Phu Quoc in Dickson a couple of times now. It’s a great place for fast Vietnamese food with an extensive menu. House specialties include camp fire beef, roast duck, chilli mussels, Vietnamese sour soup and steam boat. On a Friday night, the place is absolutely packed. There are always people coming […] Read more…

Wild Duck dumplings

Dinner @ Wild Duck

A few weeks ago, J and I had a celebratory dinner at Wild Duck in Kingston. I had never eaten at Wild Duck before so this was a good opportunity to try it out. It was a Friday night and we walked in without a reservation. The restaurant offers modern Asian cuisine in a fine […] Read more…

Ramentic tonkotsu

Ramen @ Ramentic

In case you hadn’t noticed, a new ramen shop opened up on Lonsdale Street in Braddon. Ramentic is located in a small nook in the Mode 1 building. Canberrans must really love their ramen, as on Ramentic’s opening day, they sold out of ALL the broth including the portion saved for the weekend! There really […] 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…

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…

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…

Spice Temple steamed eggplant

Dinner @ Spice Temple Sydney

While visiting Sydney for the weekend, my friends made a dinner reservation at Neil Perry’s Spice Temple. The entrance was a little inconspicuous and we only found it as we noticed the street number displayed on the building. The front door was covered in an LCD sceen playing a loop of curtains unravelling. We pushed […] Read more…
