Pialligo Estate Farmhouse milk buns

Winter Lunch @ Pialligo Estate Farmhouse

The Farmhouse Restaurant at Pialligo Estate was recently renovated, (they knocked down a whole wall), to make the space inside a bit more spacious. It reopened for business and we booked in for a winter’s lunch with family. The new winter menu had just been introduced and I was really looking forward to it. To […] Read more…

Natural Nine dumplings

9 Dish Roulette @ Natural Nine

*I was invited to dine at Natural Nine courtesy of the restaraunt, however all opinions are my own. Not long after a dinner degustation at Natural Nine, Casino Canberra’s renovated fine-dining restaurant, I heard news of its rebranding into a modern Asian eatery. I must admit the fine-dining theme didn’t do enough for me to […] Read more…

Desserts and snacks in Melbourne

During my week away in Melbourne, I hit up a few dessert places during the day as I love my sweets! (Also, see my Breakfast in Melbourne post for ideas on breakfast stops). The Dessert Kitchen I tried the Nippon warabi ($10.50) aka the raindrop cake with house made matcha balls and red bean. The […] Read more…

Breakfast @ EQ Cafe and Lounge

I was told to try out EQ Cafe and Lounge years ago, and although it was always on my list of places to visit, it just never happened until recently. I found myself with a free morning and was close to Deakin, so I finally stopped in for breakfast. The cafe was larger than I […] Read more…

Dinner degustation @ Koi Dessert Bar – Sydney

A few months ago, some Canberra foodies and I did a massive Sydney food weekend. One of our meals was held at Koi Dessert Bar for its set 5 course dinner at $77 per person. The ground floor has a display cabinet filled with an assortment of cakes. These disappeared quickly so I’d recommend buying […] Read more…

All you can eat @ Eightysix

Foodblogger Tales of a Confectionist mentioned that there are usually two sittings on the weekend, so if you’re in […] Read more…

Butterbings @ 38 Espresso

Last Friday, 38 Espresso on the Kingston Foreshore sold a limited number of Melbourne’s butterbing cookie sandwiches. I headed down there around 9.30am, and must have bought the last few butterbings. The two flavours available that day were salted caramel and peanut butter ($5.50 each). I loved the soft dark chocolate cookie. The softness made […] Read more…

Gelato @ Jersey Jack Gelato – Perth

While in Perth, I had to try the ‘Little Mostro’ (little monster in Italian) gelato at Jersey Jack Gelato in Como. For $15, you get 3 scoops of gelato of your choice (all freshly made on site), a mini cone of whipped cream, a mini cone of liquid dark chocolate, and a few other trimmings. […] Read more…

$20 lunch plate @ Wood & Coal

I hadn’t been to Wood & Coal for a few years (since 2014!). I had passed by one day and saw a sign for a $20 lunch plate which sounded good to me, plus I was starving, and decided to dine in. There was a choice of house wine, beer or soft drink included so […] Read more…

The Commons Street Feast

In case you didn’t know, The Commons Street Feast is a food truck festival being held in Commonwealth Park, Canberra, from 9 to 18 December 2016. It’s an exciting time with this being the first of several food festivals being held across the capital this month (more on that later). Despite the fact that gates […] Read more…
