Mocan & Green Grout

I’d been wanting to try this place out for ages and finally had an opportunity on a Sunday afternoon. Great thing about Mocan and Green Grout is that its open for brunch both Saturday and Sunday which is quite rare for cafés in Civic. The cute and quirky little café reminds me of the cafés […] Read more…

Dream Cuisine Patisserie

After seeing Dream Cuisine Patisserie at their stall at the Kingston Bus Depot Markets, I went onto their website and found out they had a little shop in Fyshwick. Some free time on a Saturday morning lead me to drive to Fyshwick to check it out. The shop is pretty much located in the middle […] Read more…

$25 breakfast prefix at C Dine Bar

The breakfast prefix menu at C Dine Bar provides a 2 course menu where you can choose what you would like in each course. It also includes an amuse bouche as a starter. I think this is the only venue in Canberra to offer a breakfast prefix. Love the idea! The amuse bouche was a […] Read more…

C Dine Bar at the Kingston Foreshore

I had been eagerly awaiting the opening of this restaurant for months. The first to open on the Kingston Foreshore, C Dine Bar specialises in steak and seafood. We went for dinner during opening week. The restaurant is near the water and will be popular in summer when it opens up its foldable glass doors. […] Read more…

Belluci’s Manuka

A group of friends and I dined at Belluci’s Manuka for a birthday dinner. The inside of Belluci’s Manuka is relatively new and fitted out quite nicely. Belluci’s serve nice Italian food but I’ve had so many bad experiences with the chain (there’s another Belluci’s restaurant in Phillip). I’ve found the wait time is ridiculous […] Read more…

Cakes @ Flute Bakery

This post is an amalgamation of the times I’ve visited the Flute Bakery and their tasty treats. I’d heard of Flute Bakery from several people, but as they’re opening times are Monday to Friday 9am-3pm, it’s almost impossible to visit. Earlier this year, on a day off, I decided to check this place out for […] Read more…

Dinner @ Me & Mrs Jones

I organised a group dinner at Me & Mrs Jones in Kingston with some friends. When I rang up to make a booking, they informed me that there were only spare tables in the enclosed heated outdoor area. It was a cold Canberra’s Winter’s night but the staff member assured me it would be warm […] Read more…

Bean & Grain bagel

A friend suggested I check out Bean and Grain for their awesome bagels. I must admit, I’m not a huge fan of bagels – they’re usually dry and dense. Bean and Grain bake their bagels and other breads fresh every day. Located at the Fyshwick fresh food markets, you need to get in early-ish (before […] Read more…

Yumcha @ China Plate at Kingston

When I found out the new-ish China Plate restaurant in Kingston was serving yumcha on weekends, I put it on my foodie bucket list to try out. There are two yumcha banquets available – standard and premium. We went with the premium banquet. Each person receives one of each yumcha dish. At $40 per person, […] Read more…

Brazilian BBQ @ The Copa

I was so excited to try out Canberra’s first Brazilian churrasco restaurant – the Copa. I’d read that the massive churrasco (bbq/oven pit) that you see as you walk in was imported straight from Brazil. I organised a group booking for a Thursday night – the second night of it opening. It was also a […] Read more…
