I felt like sushi and have gone to Hero Sushi at Westfield Woden on a few occasions. It is located in an odd spot – next door to Price Attack near Coles. The shop has a nice open seating area and you can see the sushi chef slicing up fresh raw salmon on the kitchen […] Read more…

Dinner @ Jimmy’s Saigon

A friend and I headed to Jimmy’s Saigon Vietnamese Restaurant in the city on Friday night. It replaces Oishi inside the Garema Centre.
