Brunch @ The Public Place

J’s parents live in Tuggeranong and told me about a new cafe at their local Chisholm shops that took over from an old bakery. Located right next to Coles, is newly opened The Public Place. Searching for whatever I could find on them, I saw very cute looking Pokeball cake pops on their Instagram page […] Read more…

Dinner @ Vincent

New wine bar and eatery Vincent, opened up a few months ago at Governor Place in Barton. After hearing good things about it, a friend booked dinner there for a group of us on a Friday night. We were split over 2 tables as there were 9 of us altogether. The first thing I noticed […] Read more…

The Bearded Bean – Civic

The Bearded Bean in Civic has been open for a couple of months and has made a huge impact to office workers close by. It’s always packed with people queuing up to place their coffee orders or grabbing a quick breakfast in the morning. One morning, I noticed a sign out the front advertising specialty […] Read more…

Burgers @ Ace High Eatery & Bar

J and I happened to be in Tuggeranong on a Saturday afternoon and decided to have lunch at one of the eateries near the Hyperdome. Walking past the main restaurant strip on Anketell Street, we spotted Ace High Eatery & Bar which offered burgers, hot dogs, milkshakes and beer. That sounded good so we went […] Read more…

Casey Jones Gastropub launch

Note: I was invited to dine as a guest of Casey Jones, however all opinions are my own. The media launch of Casey Jones was held last week in the new suburb of Casey in Gungahlin. Locals are going to love the new gastropub in the neighbourhood and I am a tad jealous. The new […] Read more…

Mud crab @ Jimmy’s Place

I am always reading about Tales of a Confectionist’s food trips to Jimmy’s Place in Dickson for mud crab. We finally got together with fellow foodies and our other halves for dinner on a Monday night. There were two styles served with the mud crab – an XO sauce on vermicelli noodles, or ginger and […] Read more…

Mussel Sunday @ C Seafood and Oyster Bar

A fellow foodie advised me that C Seafood and Oyster Bar (formerly known as C Dine Bar) on the Kingston Foreshore were doing a 1/2kg of mussels for $15 or 1kg for $25. Since the Little Brussels Belgian Beer Cafe closed in Kingston, I’ve been trying to find another place that sold 1kg of mussels. […] Read more…

Contemporary Chinese @ Tasting China

Replacing Chairman and Yip in Civic, is new contemporary Chinese restaurant Tasting China. It sneakily opened over a month ago and the menu looks pretty tasty. Prices for mains are around the $25-35 mark so it’s definitely not your cheap Chinese take away. I love the gorgeous Chinese decor inside mixing traditional furniture with the […] Read more…

Indian street food @ Binny’s Kathitto

Some friends and I caught up for lunch at Binny’s Kathitto in Braddon. Binny’s used to be in a small food van across the road at The Hamlet but recently expanded into its own store. As I walked up to the entrance, the large and heavy-looking glass sliding door was slid open by one of […] Read more…

Brunch @ Public

J and I decided to head to Public in Manuka for brunch one weekend. I’ve been to Public on a few occasions, mainly during the evening with work colleagues but never for brunch. It was such a beautiful sunny morning that we left the car at home and walked to the Manuka shops instead. We […] Read more…
