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…

All you can eat @ Eightysix

My fellow foodblogger friends and I dined at Eightysix in Braddon for their all you can eat feast. Yep that’s right, for $86 per person you can have whatever you want and order seconds or thirds! Foodblogger Tales of a Confectionist mentioned that there are usually two sittings on the weekend, so if you’re in […] Read more…

6 course lunch @ Rubicon

While still on leave, I was trying to decide where to lunch and decided to try an oldie but a goodie – Rubicon at the Griffith shops. The last time I had dined at Rubicon was during my pre-blogging days. I remember a dinner degustation where the diner was able to choose any of the […] Read more…
