Burgers @ Burger Hero

A friend and I caught up at Burger Hero in Braddon for lunch one weekday. We had both heard of Burger Hero but had never tried it. There were a few tables and chairs in the small eatery, however it looked to be mainly a casual take away joint. There were 14 burgers on the […] Read more…

Lunch @ Nutrition Station

A new eatery focused on healthy food, Nutrition Station, has opened in Braddon. This used to be a small shop inside Fitness First in the Canberra Centre, and has now expanded to its own separate cafe. The all day menu is quite extensive making it a little difficult to decide on what to eat! For […] Read more…

The Gods Cafe and Bar @ ANU

The Gods Cafe and Bar at the Australian National University had been on my list of cafes to try for a long time. As it’s only open Monday to Friday, I had to wait for a day off before I could visit. After coming back from overseas, I had a few days off work so […] Read more…

Brunch @ The Public Place

J’s parents live in Tuggeranong and told me about a new cafe at their local Chisholm shops that took over from an old bakery. Located right next to Coles, is newly opened The Public Place. Searching for whatever I could find on them, I saw very cute looking Pokeball cake pops on their Instagram page […] Read more…

Burgers @ Ace High Eatery & Bar

J and I happened to be in Tuggeranong on a Saturday afternoon and decided to have lunch at one of the eateries near the Hyperdome. Walking past the main restaurant strip on Anketell Street, we spotted Ace High Eatery & Bar which offered burgers, hot dogs, milkshakes and beer. That sounded good so we went […] Read more…

Hale + Mary Kingston

New American sports bar, Hale + Mary, has been open for a few weeks replacing what used to be San Lucia Trattoria in Kingston. It’s been very popular since opening with massive HD TV screens streaming all sorts of sports games – grand prix, footy, rugby, basketball and more. There are seats along the bar, […] Read more…

Lunch @ Tree Eighty3

A few weeks ago, a friend and I met up for lunch in Civic. I picked Tree Eighty3 in Bailey’s Corner as it had been a long time since I’d been there. The last time I was there was for breakfast, but I was keen to go back for lunch to try out the ‘Pork […] Read more…

Cheap eats @ Hot Pop Cafe

After a quick bite to eat at LSR 7 on Lonsdale Street, I noticed newly opened Hot Pop Cafe right next door. Peeking in, the cafe is small with about 4 tables so I gather it is mainly a take away spot. There is no hipster decor in sight. The cheap prices on the menu […] Read more…

Burgers @ Brodburger

In its early days, Brodburger started off in a bright red food van stationed at Bowen Park in Barton/Kingston. Locals came from all over the Canberra region just for its burgers. The queue was notorious – at least a 1 hour wait for the best burgers in Canberra. Fast forward a few years and Brodburger […] Read more…

Lunch @ Frankies at Forde

I don’t remember how I came across gastropub Frankies at Forde, but the website menu had such a variety of food that I organised a group lunch there one weekend. There is plenty of indoor seating as well as outdoor seating out by the street and in a rear courtyard. Orders including drinks are taken […] Read more…
