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…

Taking over the old Grande’s spot in Manuka, is 1 or 2 Cafe. I was warmly greeted when I entered the cafe early on a Saturday morning. The family-run cafe was small and cosy – the front counter’s display filled with pastries and sandwiches, and the back wall loaded with fresh loaves of bread. Who’s […] Read more…
