Contemporary Chinese @ Tasting China

Replacing Chairman and Yip in Civic, is new contemporary Chinese restaurant Tasting China. It sneakily opened over a month ago and the menu looks pretty tasty. Prices for mains are around the $25-35 mark so it’s definitely not your cheap Chinese take away. I love the gorgeous Chinese decor inside mixing traditional furniture with the […] Read more…

Cheap lunch @ Empire BBQ Cafe

One Saturday afternoon, J and I walked around Dickson to find somewhere to have lunch. There are still so many places in Dickson I am yet to visit. We passed by Empire BBQ Cafe which I don’t remember seeing before. It replaced the upstairs food court that had been there for years. A glance at […] Read more…

Nepalese @ The Hungry Buddha

I dined as a guest of The Hungry Buddha, however all opinions are my own. J and I headed in for dinner at The Hungry Buddha in Curtin one weeknight, courtesy of the owners of the restaurant. The entrance can be hard to find as it’s actually located underground next door to the Beyond Q […] Read more…

Dumplings @ Yat Bun Tong

Found this old post that I never got around to publishing! I’d been eagerly stalking the construction of Yat Bun Tong in Braddon when I read that it would be a new dumpling house. It opened a few months ago and I headed over there with some work colleagues for lunch. Upon entering, I got […] Read more…

Dinner @ Jade Dumpling Noodle House

Located in Gungahlin, the Jade Dumpling Noodle House is a bit of a drive for me but I am trying to dine at more North-side eateries. J and I drove there the night that Canberra had all of that constant flickering lightning – a bit scary but we managed to park undercover. I was excited […] Read more…

Canberra Enlighten Night Noodle Markets 2016 wrap up

Canberra’s second year of the Enlighten Night Noodle markets has ended. I thought it was a lot more successfully run compared to last year – doubling the space allowed more room to manoeuvre which meant queues didn’t cross over each other, there were twice as many seats spread out in different areas, two bars and […] Read more…

Canberra’s Night Noodle Markets starts tomorrow

The 2016 Enlighten Night Noodle Markets commence on Friday 4 March 2016 at 5pm at Reconciliation Place. After last year’s feedback, the space for this year’s markets has apparently doubled. Here’s hoping, remember these intertwining queues from last year? And the sun hadn’t even set yet! More stalls have been added on. Here’s the line […] Read more…

Lunch special @ Chaki Chaki

Newly opened Chaki Chaki in Braddon offers high end Japanese cuisine from chef, Yujiro Takeda, who brought us Tasuke. I’ve been stalking the website for a few weeks and I must say the website alone is beautiful! Chaki Chaki predominantly offers a $60 or $80 set degustation with a few tapas on the a la […] Read more…

Dinner @ Chez Kimchi

14 types of fried chicken. That’s what Chez Kimchi in Civic offers and more. On one spontaneous Friday night shopping trip into the city, J and I stopped in for dinner at Chez Kimchi. After hearing good reviews from various people, it was time to try it out. The menu has plenty of Korean dishes […] Read more…

First look @ Cinnabar (Kingston Foreshore)

*I was invited to dine as a guest, however all opinions are my own. As mentioned in last year’s post on what’s opening at the Kingston Foreshore, Cinnabar is a new Asian Fusion restaurant. I got a sneak peek at Cinnabar last night and learnt that it focuses on bringing a new modern spin to […] Read more…
