Natural Nine dumplings

9 Dish Roulette @ Natural Nine

*I was invited to dine at Natural Nine courtesy of the restaraunt, however all opinions are my own. Not long after a dinner degustation at Natural Nine, Casino Canberra’s renovated fine-dining restaurant, I heard news of its rebranding into a modern Asian eatery. I must admit the fine-dining theme didn’t do enough for me to […] Read more…

Buddha's Kitchen Co box

Buddha’s Kitchen Co – Canberra

I was invited to sample a box of goodies by Buddha’s Kitchen Co, however all opinions are my own. Buddha’s Kitchen Co was established in June 2016, and has been supplying Canberra with various bagels, schmears and banana breads. A lot of the products are vegan and I’m told that this is purely because vegan […] Read more…

Mocan Green Grout Canberra baked eggs

Brunch @ Mocan and Green Grout

Mocan and Green Grout in Acton is a favourite coffee destination for inner city office workers, students, hipsters and weekend brunchers. I often find a queue of people waiting for a table or take away coffee. I hadn’t been back to dine in for years so I got up early one weekday morning to have […] Read more…

Zierholz pork knuckle

Pork knuckle @ Zierholz Brewery

I hadn’t been back to Zierholz in Fyshwich in years (since about 2014) but recently had lunch there to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Zierholz is a German brewery selling pork knuckle, schnitzel, goulash, German sausages and other typical dishes we’ve come to appreciate. The last time I was there, I had one of the tasting […] Read more…

Courgette flavours of corn and croquette

Dinner @ Courgette

J and I were invited to a milestone birthday dinner at Courgette. It had been years since I last dined there so I was really looking forward to it. As there were a few of us dining for dinner, we were seated in the wine cellar. A dangerous place to be in if you love […] Read more…

Breakfast @ EQ Cafe and Lounge

I was told to try out EQ Cafe and Lounge years ago, and although it was always on my list of places to visit, it just never happened until recently. I found myself with a free morning and was close to Deakin, so I finally stopped in for breakfast. The cafe was larger than I […] Read more…

Dinner @ Thai Amarin

Tucked in between The Durham Castle Arms and Harem Turkish in Kingston’s Green Square is Thai Amarin. Some Kingston local friends and I headed there for dinner one night where I learnt it was a regular go-to for Thai take away before the Foreshore opened up the options. The inside was cosy and homely with […] 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…

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…
