Choux @ Chu Bakery (Perth)

I found Chu Bakery in Perth via instagram and put it on my list of places to check out during my visit. The bakery is located on a corner in kind of the middle of no where. There are no other shops around it giving it a nice neighbourhood bakery feel. The store is tiny […] Read more…

Dinner @ Buvette Bistro & Wine Bar

*I was invited to dine as a guest, however all opinions are my own. Portion sizes may vary. Buvette Bistro & Wine Bar is part of the Realm Hotel’s suite of restaurants in Barton. It opened in November 2015 with about a month’s break after Christmas and New Year. Buvette is a modern and sleek […] Read more…

Canberra Enlighten Night Noodle Markets 2016 wrap up

Canberra’s second year of the Enlighten Night Noodle markets has ended. I thought it was a lot more successfully run compared to last year – doubling the space allowed more room to manoeuvre which meant queues didn’t cross over each other, there were twice as many seats spread out in different areas, two bars and […] Read more…

Tom Roberts High Tea @ National Gallery of Australia

*I dined as a guest of the National Gallery of Australia, however all opinions are my own. I was kindly invited by the National Gallery of Australia (NGA) to try out the Tom Roberts High Tea in the Wedgwood Tea Room. Tom Roberts (1856-1931) was an Australian artist and part of the Australian Impressionists group. […] Read more…

Canberra’s Night Noodle Markets starts tomorrow

The 2016 Enlighten Night Noodle Markets commence on Friday 4 March 2016 at 5pm at Reconciliation Place. After last year’s feedback, the space for this year’s markets has apparently doubled. Here’s hoping, remember these intertwining queues from last year? And the sun hadn’t even set yet! More stalls have been added on. Here’s the line […] Read more…

Steak @ Chifley’s

So many foodie friends have told me that Chifley’s Bar & Grill is the place to go for Canberra’s best steak. Chifley’s opened in Hotel Kurrajong in Barton I think about two years ago, and I finally organised dinner there with friends one Friday night. There are outdoor tables underneath shady umbrellas, an undercover outdoor […] Read more…

The Muffle @ Muffle & Co

I discovered the muffle at the Fremantle markets in Western Australia. The small store that sells muffles is Muffle & Co which I found out has a few stores across the world. Using a waffle-like maker with deep semi-circles rather than squares, staff pour the batter over and it only takes about a minute for […] Read more…

Dinner @ Pod Food

Some friends and I dined at Pod Food a few weeks ago for dinner using a Livingsocial voucher which discounted our 5 course degustation to about $60 per person. The last time I was there was for a 4 course breakfast so it’s been a while since I’ve sampled their non-breakfast items. We were seated […] Read more…

Breakfast @ Pialligo Estate Garden Pavilions

After my experience at the launch of the Pialligo Estate Garden Pavilions late last year, I was keen to go back to try out the newly introduced breakfast menu. Michelle of HerCanberra and I made a breakfast date last week to check it out. We walked past and peeked into Pialligo Estate’s second kitchen in […] Read more…

Brunch @ 7th and Bake

Another new eatery to open at the Kingston Foreshore is 7th and Bake, a bakery and patisserie, offering an all day breakfast menu and lunch. There are also freshly squeezed juices, milkshakes, coffee and tea available. There’s colourful outdoor seating with lake views while the timber wraparound counter with stools on one side with a […] Read more…
