Lunch @ Neho Asian Tapas – Perth

My sister and I had lunch at Neho Asian Tapas in Victoria Park, Perth. I had heard some good reviews about it and was keen to check it out. Seeing as it was a Friday lunch, we had no problems getting a table or finding a parking spot. I loved the quirky signs of Asian […] Read more…

Little Matcha Girl – Perth

I head back to Perth every year to see my family and always check out Instagram for the latest in food and restaurants. As I love all things matcha, I came across Little Matcha Girl, a small French-Japanese patisserie in Como. A friend, J and I headed there for a shared slice of cake and […] Read more…

Dinner @ Zaab

Zaab is a trendy new Laotian/Thai joint in Braddon offering a modern take to these cuisines. The place was packed out on a Friday night with a queue of people in front of what was a reservation lectern waiting to be seated. My friend and I had no booking and there were no tables left […] Read more…

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…

Luckily, the […] Read more…

Giant dumpling @ Din Tai Fung

When I heard that Din Tai Fung was creating a giant xiao long bao (soup dumpling) for the month of November, I had to make some time to get to Sydney to try one. That day was today. For $8.90 I got a xiao long bao the size of a small bamboo steamer and a […] Read more…

Pop-up dinner @ Lolo and Lola’s

Note: I was invited to dine as a guest of Lolo and Lola, however all opinions are my own. The popular Lolo and Lola by Waterhouse Bakers at Westside Acton Park recently introduced monthly pop-up dinners. I was kindly invited to the October dinner and didn’t know what to expect. The tables in the enclosed […] Read more…

$6.99 curry @ Burmese Curry Place

I had heard about the famous Burmese Curry Place from friends that work in the city. The best and cheapest curry you will find in all of Canberra, I was told. As it’s only open Monday to Friday, it was never a place I could easily get to. Until now. I could smell the hit […] Read more…

Mooncake Festival 2016

Happy Mooncake Festival! Aka the Mid-Autumn Festival (Autumn over in Asia). I headed to Canberra’s first Mooncake Festival held at the Kingston Old Bus Depot last weekend. Sadly, there was really only one stall selling mooncakes but I made my purchases anyway (I didn’t have time to go to Dickson and look in the various […] Read more…
