Dumplings @ Yat Bun Tong

Found this old post that I never got around to publishing! I’d been eagerly stalking the construction of Yat Bun Tong in Braddon when I read that it would be a new dumpling house. It opened a few months ago and I headed over there with some work colleagues for lunch. Upon entering, I got […] Read more…

Dinner @ Temporada

A few weeks ago, my friend organised a group dinner at Temporada for a Monday night. I always hear good things about Temporada and hadn’t been back since it first opened so I was really excited to try it out again. As we were seated and waiting for others to arrive, drink orders were taken. […] Read more…

Breakfast @ Remi Food & Wine Bar

*I dined as a guest, however all opinions are my own. Remi Food and Wine Bar is tucked away between two buildings on Moore Street in the city. Originally owned by the Trimboli family (of Mezzalira, Italian & Sons, Da Rosario, Bacaro fame), it has recently been rebranded and taken over by Michael De Silva […] Read more…

Pizza and board games @ Guild

Canberra’s first board game restaurant, Guild, opened its doors a few weeks ago. This is exciting news for board game lovers! My fellow board gaming friends and I booked in for dinner and a board games night. Guild is tucked away nicely downstairs at Bailey’s Corner (where APK used to be next to Hogs Breath […] Read more…

Dinner @ Chez Kimchi

14 types of fried chicken. That’s what Chez Kimchi in Civic offers and more. On one spontaneous Friday night shopping trip into the city, J and I stopped in for dinner at Chez Kimchi. After hearing good reviews from various people, it was time to try it out. The menu has plenty of Korean dishes […] Read more…

Asian fusion @ Soi Noodle Bar

I’d walked past the boarded up space when Soi Noodle Bar was being constructed wondering what it would offer. The signage only stated that it would be Asian Fusion dining and to me that means $$$. Soi Noodle Bar has been open for about a month now and it was about time I went to […] Read more…

Weekday lunch @ Milk Crate Cafe

Milk Crate Cafe in Civic has been open for a few weeks now. With photos of the funky looking cafe being posted on my social media feeds, I made this a lunch time destination on a day off. Milk Crate Cafe is located at 12 Moore Street.┬áNot too hard to find as the number ’12’ […] Read more…

Banquet @ Soju Girl

For a friend’s hens night, a bunch of us had dinner at Soju Girl. This Asian fusion restaurant and bar focuses on modern Korean, Thai and Japanese cuisine. I hadn’t been to Soju Girl since its renovations and was sad to see all the cool manga print on the walls were gone. I was happy […] Read more…

Winter Chocolate Alchemy Party @ Koko Black

Each year, Koko Black puts on a winter evening of chocolate indulgence – 5 courses of chocolate presented to the table with a special theme such as truffle. I’ve been the last three years and have absolutely loved it. It is something I look forward to every year. This year, the format was different. It […] Read more…

Nonna’s House @ Provini

V and I headed to newly opened Italian restaurant, Provini, which replaced La Scala in the city. Provini is owned by the Cocu Group which also owns Shorty’s next door, Little Brooklyn in Kingston, Public in Manuka, Suburban and much more around Canberra, so I couldn’t help but have high expectations of this place. The […] Read more…
