Canberra’s Night Noodle Markets starts tomorrow

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…

Lunch special @ Chaki Chaki

Newly opened Chaki Chaki in Braddon offers high end Japanese cuisine from chef, Yujiro Takeda, who brought us Tasuke. I’ve been stalking the website for a few weeks and I must say the website alone is beautiful! Chaki Chaki predominantly offers a $60 or $80 set degustation with a few tapas on the a la […] Read more…

Breakfast @ Remi Food & Wine Bar

*I dined as a guest, however all opinions are my own. Remi Food and Wine Bar is tucked away between two buildings on Moore Street in the city. Originally owned by the Trimboli family (of Mezzalira, Italian & Sons, Da Rosario, Bacaro fame), it has recently been rebranded and taken over by Michael De Silva […] Read more…

10 Places for Mocktails in Canberra

I don’t drink alcohol but that doesn’t mean I don’t like ordering a pretty drink in a pretty glass! I hate those half-assed attempts at a mocktail that are really just a mix of juices with tonic water without tasting it or with any reasonable idea of what it should taste like, especially when you […] Read more…

Dinner @ Pod Food

Some friends and I dined at Pod Food a few weeks ago for dinner using a Livingsocial voucher which discounted our 5 course degustation to about $60 per person. The last time I was there was for a 4 course breakfast so it’s been a while since I’ve sampled their non-breakfast items. We were seated […] Read more…

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…
