Molto Italian @ the Kingston Foreshore

Another new eatery to join Cinnabar, 7th and Bake, and Beef & Barley at the new end of the Kingston Foreshore, is Molto Italian. Headed by Carlo Tosolini, the same guy who owned the now closed Tosolini’s in Civic, I couldn’t help but go in with high expectations for decent portion sizes and lots of […] Read more…

Pizza and board games @ Guild

Canberra’s first board game restaurant, Guild, opened its doors a few weeks ago. This is exciting news for board game lovers! My fellow board gaming friends and I booked in for dinner and a board games night. Guild is tucked away nicely downstairs at Bailey’s Corner (where APK used to be next to Hogs Breath […] Read more…

Burgers @ Beef & Barley

The next eatery to join the recently opened Cinnabar and 7th and Bake at the Kingston Foreshore is Beef & Barley. Offering gourmet burgers and craft beers, Beef & Barley has a very laid back hipster vibe minus the plants with chipboard and timber decor. The outdoor seating provides a combination of benches and high […] Read more…

Breakfast @ Pialligo Estate Garden Pavilions

After my experience at the launch of the Pialligo Estate Garden Pavilions late last year, I was keen to go back to try out the newly introduced breakfast menu. Michelle of HerCanberra and I made a breakfast date last week to check it out. We walked past and peeked into Pialligo Estate’s second kitchen in […] Read more…

Dinner @ Chez Kimchi

14 types of fried chicken. That’s what Chez Kimchi in Civic offers and more. On one spontaneous Friday night shopping trip into the city, J and I stopped in for dinner at Chez Kimchi. After hearing good reviews from various people, it was time to try it out. The menu has plenty of Korean dishes […] Read more…

Bookplate @ the National Library of Australia

My friend and I met up for lunch at Bookplate in the National Library. I hadn’t been to Bookplate in about 5 years but knew that it had been revamped in the last year or two. The menu has certainly been updated with some trendy items for lunch such as baos and chimichanga. For breakfast, […] Read more…

Brunch @ 7th and Bake

Another new eatery to open at the Kingston Foreshore is 7th and Bake, a bakery and patisserie, offering an all day breakfast menu and lunch. There are also freshly squeezed juices, milkshakes, coffee and tea available. There’s colourful outdoor seating with lake views while the timber wraparound counter with stools on one side with a […] Read more…

Lunch @ Cornerstone

I have walked past Cornerstone Cafe in Weston Creek numerous times and finally organised a group lunch one weekend. The first thing to catch my eye were the hipster looking timber spools reused as tables, and timber high tables outside. The menu stuck to the window for passerby’s showed inexpensive prices which was another reason […] Read more…

First look @ Cinnabar (Kingston Foreshore)

*I was invited to dine as a guest, however all opinions are my own. As mentioned in last year’s post on what’s opening at the Kingston Foreshore, Cinnabar is a new Asian Fusion restaurant. I got a sneak peek at Cinnabar last night and learnt that it focuses on bringing a new modern spin to […] Read more…

Asian fusion @ Soi Noodle Bar

I’d walked past the boarded up space when Soi Noodle Bar was being constructed wondering what it would offer. The signage only stated that it would be Asian Fusion dining and to me that means $$$. Soi Noodle Bar has been open for about a month now and it was about time I went to […] Read more…
