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…

Lunch @ Kinn Thai

My partner J and I were shopping at the Canberra Centre one weekend and decided to try out the latest eatery to open on Bunda Street, Kinn Thai Restaurant. Kinn has replaced Wagamama along the restaurant strip outside the Centre. Kinn means ‘eat’ in Thai and we were starving! A sign outside states to wait […] Read more…

The Cupping Room re-run

I haven’t written another post about The Cupping Room since my first visit when it opened in 2013. I’ve been back several more times now, so this is a compilation of some of these visits (and of the photos I could dig up). The ‘Eat All Day’ menu has its perks meaning you can eat […] Read more…

Cafe dining @ 332 Manhattan

Another new cafe to open in Canberra city is 332 Manhattan, underneath the Manhattan apartment complex facing Glebe Park. On a Saturday morning, the place was packed and I just managed to grab a table for three. Table numbers are tied with some twine on either a small jar of succulents or a salt and […] Read more…

Yum cha @ Akiba

Akiba recently introduced yum cha on weekends between 11-3. I was interested to see what it would be like so I booked an outdoor table with some friends. The yum cha menu that day (below) looked like the regular Akiba menu but shorter. This was confusing – what was the yum cha aspect? Thankfully our […] Read more…

Cheap Vietnamese @ Bistro Nguyen’s

New Vietnamese restaurant, Bistro Nguyen’s, recently opened in Civic on the corner of Northbourne Avenue and Alinga Street (replacing what was Wasabi). I originally thought the restaurant was called Vietnamese Food as there’s a massive banner hanging out the front with ‘Vietnamese Food Now Open’ written across it. Approaching the entrance of the restaurant, I […] Read more…

Coffee and jaffles @ Tupelo Coffee Co

A new coffee shop, Tupelo Coffee Co, opened up in Civic last month. Located in the Sydney building on Alinga Street, you’ll spot the cafe with its low wooden tables and crates with wooden seats. Inside, it’s sleek and pristine white indicating this is a no-nonsense cafe that’s all about the coffee. All coffee beans […] Read more…

Oasis Summer menu @ Koko Black

*I dined as a guest of Koko Black. All opinions are my own. Koko Black introduced its new Summer Oasis menu and kindly invited me to check it out. I’m a huge fan of Koko Black and always book into its Winter Evenings of Indulgence each year. At 4pm on a Sunday, the cafe located […] Read more…

A healthy addiction @ SpudBar

Potato lovers rejoice! SpudBar recently opened in Civic selling all things spud. Though the address is on Bunda Street, it’s not actually on Bunda Street which I found out after walking up and down numerous times trying to find the place. SpudBar looks out onto Garema Place and is next to iPho. The menu is […] Read more…

All you can eat ribs and wings @ Outback Jacks

My partner and I headed to Outback Jacks for dinner with the all you can eat ribs and wings in mind. Entering the recently opened Canberra City eatery, the first thing you notice when walking inside is the massive crocodile floating above. I couldn’t get the whole shot as we were sitting underneath, but it […] Read more…
