Stanley's chicken parmagiana

Lunch @ Stanley’s

Stanley’s is a relatively new family friendly pub located in Bruce (replacing what was Ellacure) with beers on tap and regularly changing specials. My friends and I headed there for Saturday lunch (with no reservation). About 70% of the tables were reserved however there were a few small tables available. The space inside is quite […] Read more…

Can Tho pork chop

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…

Pizza @ Pizza Artigiana

*I was invited to dine as a guest, however all opinions are my own. I was contacted by Silvio, one of the owners of Pizza Artigiana in Macquarie, to come try their pizzas. The small eatery is tucked away behind the Jamison shops and opened in August 2015. Owning a pizzeria had been a passion […] Read more…

Dinner @ Thip’s Thai

I caught up with some friends North-side for dinner. Having heard thatΒ 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…

Lunch @ Ellacure

(I dined as a guest of Ellacure, however all opinions are my own.) I was invited to dine at Ellacure to provide an honest blogger review of the restaurant. Ellacure is part of 2617 Group that also own Soju Girl and Versatile. My last visit was back in 2013 so I was happy to try […] Read more…

All day menu @ Two Before Ten (Aranda)

Many of you may know that the much loved Two Before Ten (TBT) in the city temporarily shut down due to the redevelopment of the building. A coffee cart/trailer acted as a substitute enabling city workers to grab their coffee fix. The plan was to build a brand new bigger and better TBT out in […] Read more…

BrodDogs by Brodburger

A few weeks ago, Canberra burger institution Brodburger opened up its second venture, BrodDogs, in its distinctive red van in Belconnen. Selling gourmet hotdogs, BrodDogs made an appearance back in February at the Canberra National Multicultural Festival and it must’ve taken off from there! BrodDogs is located on the top floor carpark of Westfield Belconnen […] Read more…

Dinner @ Malaysian Chapter

A few weeks ago, a friend and I tried out Malaysian Chapter for dinner after buying a Livingsocial voucher for a 3 course dinner. Specialising in hawker cuisine, you will find this family-run restaurant tucked away on Weedon Close in Belconnen. Because of the Livingsocial deal, we had a limited menu of what we could […] Read more…

Brunch @ Little Oink

On one of those spur of the moment Saturday brunches, a friend and I decided to head north-side and try brunch at Little Oink in Cook. There are a few tables outside covered in brightly coloured tablecloths. As I stepped inside, the beautiful colours and images painted on the feature wall are the first things […] Read more…
