Eating in Chiang Mai – Part 1

So I’m finally getting around to writing about my food adventures in South East Asia late last year. For J’s milestone birthday, a group of us headed overseas to celebrate. We traveled to Chiang Mai in Thailand, Luang Prabang in Laos, various parts of Vietnam with a final stop in Singapore. It started off with […] 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…

B-One teriyaki chicken

$12 cheap lunch @ B-One Korean

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…

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…

Dinner @ Thai Amarin

Tucked in between The Durham Castle Arms and Harem Turkish in Kingston’s Green Square is Thai Amarin. Some Kingston local friends and I headed there for dinner one night where I learnt it was a regular go-to for Thai take away before the Foreshore opened up the options. The inside was cosy and homely with […] Read more…

Can Tho pork chop

Dinner @ Can Tho

A friend and I caught up for dinner in Belconnen one night and I suggested Can Tho as I’d heard good things about it and had never had a chance to dine there previously. The restaurant had plenty of seating inside, though the decor is nothing fancy. The menu was extensive and it was difficult […] Read more…

Eating in Japan – Hakone, Yokohama, Kamakura and Nikko

I’ve put together some smaller trips to Hakone, Yokohama, Kamakura and Nikko into this final post in my Eating in Japan series, even though I didn’t actually travel in this order. Following on from Eating in Japan – Kyoto Part 2, we took a train and ferry to Hakone. My sister and I both bought […] Read more…

Eating in Japan – Kyoto – Part 2

Following on from Eating in Japan – Kyoto – Part 1, we headed out of Kyoto to visit the town of Uji. Uji Uji is a small city situated between Kyoto and Nara, and is famous for its green tea. My sister and I both wanted to take part in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony. […] Read more…

Cheap eats @ Tu Do Vietnamese

I only managed to try the popular Vietnamese restaurant, Tu Do, in O’Connor very recently to the chagrin of my foodie friends. Located at the O’Connor shops, Tu Do was not hard to find and filled with diners. The restaurant was a lot more modern than expected – I loved the dark timber floorboards. It […] Read more…
