Dinner @ Jade Dumpling Noodle House

Located in Gungahlin, the Jade Dumpling Noodle House is a bit of a drive for me but I am trying to dine at more North-side eateries. J and I drove there the night that Canberra had all of that constant flickering lightning – a bit scary but we managed to park undercover. I was excited […] Read more…

Dinner @ Buvette Bistro & Wine Bar

*I was invited to dine as a guest, however all opinions are my own. Portion sizes may vary. Buvette Bistro & Wine Bar is part of the Realm Hotel’s suite of restaurants in Barton. It opened in November 2015 with about a month’s break after Christmas and New Year. Buvette is a modern and sleek […] Read more…

Canberra Enlighten Night Noodle Markets 2016 wrap up

Canberra’s second year of the Enlighten Night Noodle markets has ended. I thought it was a lot more successfully run compared to last year – doubling the space allowed more room to manoeuvre which meant queues didn’t cross over each other, there were twice as many seats spread out in different areas, two bars and […] 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…

Tom Roberts (1856-1931) was an Australian artist and part of the Australian Impressionists group. […] Read more…

The 2016 Enlighten Night Noodle Markets commence on Friday 4 March 2016 at 5pm at Reconciliation Place. After last year’s feedback, the space for this year’s markets has apparently doubled. Here’s hoping, remember these intertwining queues from last year? And the sun hadn’t even set yet! More stalls have been added on. Here’s the line […] Read more…

Steak @ Chifley’s

So many foodie friends have told me that Chifley’s Bar & Grill is the place to go for Canberra’s best steak. Chifley’s opened in Hotel Kurrajong in Barton I think about two years ago, and I finally organised dinner there with friends one Friday night. There are outdoor tables underneath shady umbrellas, an undercover outdoor […] Read more…

First look @ Little Bird

J told me about a new cafe that opened up called Little Bird located on the ground floor of a new multistorey carpark as part of the Governor Place complex in Barton. As I was still on leave, I headed in for lunch one weekday. I was meant to meet J for lunch but he […] Read more…

Dinner @ Temporada

A few weeks ago, my friend organised a group dinner at Temporada for a Monday night. I always hear good things about Temporada and hadn’t been back since it first opened so I was really excited to try it out again. As we were seated and waiting for others to arrive, drink orders were taken. […] Read more…
