Dinner @ Thip’s Thai

I caught up with some friends North-side for dinner. Having heard that Thip’s Thai in Belconnen was authentic, I was keen to try out it out. The restaurant is difficult to find if you don’t know where it is as there is no signage out on the street. It’s actually located upstairs in the Churches Centre […] Read more…

Cheap Chinese @ Orient Kitchen – Chinese Cuisine and BBQ

Orient Kitchen has been open at the Weston Creek shops for about a month now. There are so many restaurants in Weston Creek that I haven’t yet had the opportunity to dine at, but when I saw glazed roasted ducks hanging from the window at Orient Kitchen, I couldn’t resist going in and checking out […] Read more…

Weekend lunch @ The Merchant

One lazy warm weekend, J and I were strolling past the Kingston Foreshore looking for lunch. We ended up at The Merchant Café, mainly because we knew they made iced coffees and shakes, and we were after something cold to drink. We were lucky enough to grab the last popular outdoor table underneath the shade […] Read more…

Bao and Pao – The Fish Can and Daana @ Westside Acton

Indian street food @ Roleee

One of the lesser known eateries to open in the Braddon precinct, is Roleee. Offering roti wraps and rice bowls, Roleee provides an Indian twist to fast food. Choose either a roti wrap, rice bowl or salad bowl, then choose from the chicken, beef, goat or vegetarian (chickpea and paneer) options. I love the sign […] Read more…

Lunch @ Arirang Korean

My friend V and I decided it was time to head far North-side to try out some food. It was a cold winter weekend, so hot Korean food seemed like a good idea. We walked into Arirang Korean restaurant in Gungahlin (no booking made) and there were a few spare tables available. After sitting down, […] Read more…

This year, […] Read more…
