Lebanese cuisine @ La Mono

La Mono in Braddon offers a variety of Lebanese cuisine and charcoal chicken. My first thought was that it was great to see the eatery had thought about ventilation with the kitchen’s smoky BBQ pit sealed off from the rest of the restaurant so we didn’t leave with a smoky smell on our clothes. The […] Read more…

$20 lunch plate @ Wood & Coal

I hadn’t been to Wood & Coal for a few years (since 2014!). I had passed by one day and saw a sign for a $20 lunch plate which sounded good to me, plus I was starving, and decided to dine in. There was a choice of house wine, beer or soft drink included so […] 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…

Cook your own steak @ The Kingston Hotel

I’ve been in Canberra for over 8 years now, and only made my first visit to the Kingston Hotel, lovingly known as the Kingo, a couple of months ago. I remember my friends talking about cooking their own cheap steaks years ago but never felt inspired to try it out myself. I’d rather pay for […] 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…

Roast pork and lamb rolls @ The Spit Shack

The Spit Shack in Pialligo have the best roast pork and lamb rolls in Canberra. A big statement to make but it’s true. As the name suggests, both pig and lamb are spit-roasted on site. Located at a nursery in Pialligo (near the airport), there’s a large sign at the front identifying that you’ve reached […] Read more…

The popular Smoque BBQ restaurant has quietly opened in Woden and introduced breakfast at this new flagship. For the last few weeks, loyal followers have been teased with photos of various types of waffles on Facebook and eagerly anticipating the opening. That day is today with Smoque Woden’s Facebook post announcing a soft opening today […] Read more…

Dinner @ Wood & Coal

I was looking forward to having dinner at Wood & Coal Spit & Bar at the Canberra Centre with V last weekend. Wood & Coal, located opposite Jamie’s Italian and replacing Babar’s, is the latest BBQ/wood fire/grill based eatery to open up joining the likes of Smoque, Hopscotch, Ox Eatery, and Blackfire. As the name […] Read more…

First look @ Black Fire (Braddon)

I’d been eagerly waiting for Black Fire Restaurant in Braddon to open its doors. Specialising in authentic Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine, the dinner and dessert menu was up on the website before the restaurant was even open causing me some serious hunger pangs. Located on Mort Street in the Habitat apartment complex (next to the […] Read more…
