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…

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…

Cheap eats @ Tu Do Vietnamese

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…

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…
