Fajita @ the Beach Burrito Company

The Beach Burrito Company has opened! I arrived to a massive queue that hardly moved during the 12.30 Friday lunch rush. The place was packed both indoors and outdoors. The whole place is decked out in bright splashes of colour with some funky decor, like their skull style chandelier. I like how they’ve incorporated a […] Read more…

Mr Wei’s now open

I’ve noticed that a new Asian restaurant Mr Wei’s has replaced The Hermitage on London Circuit (near the Canberra Theatre). A Canberra City News article states the owner retired in August and chef David Wei (formerly of Wild Duck in Kingston) is rebranding the restaurant. Prices are a bit more expensive than your average Asian […] Read more…

Brunch @ Loading Zone

Loading Zone in Civic recently opened its doors for Saturday brunch. And of course, I wanted to try it out 😛 I ordered the Baked Eggs with tomato sugo, fennel, chick peas and sausage. This was nice, warm and hearty. I felt like I was at nonna’s house having a home-made breakfast. The eggs were […] Read more…

Lunch @ Shorty’s Bar and Restaurant

Replacing Milk & Honey in civic is Shorty‘s – restaurant and bar. They offer bar food, finger food, mains, desserts and drinks. The fit out inside is pretty funky. They’ve kept the two levels and it now has a lounge/bar feel to it with limited outdoor dining. I’ve been here on 2 separate occasions so […] Read more…
