Lunch @ Grill and Sizzle Fusion

I noticed the new Grill and Sizzle Fusion restaurant in Dickson a few months ago. There used to be a sign advertising it was Asian/Japanese fine-dining but noticed this was taken down. On a Sunday afternoon, I headed in for lunch with a friend to check it out. We were greeted by our waitress and, […] Read more…

Brunch @ Trev’s

Some friends and I had Sunday brunch at Trev’s in Dickson. They must have lost our booking because when I enquired about our table, they had to quickly scramble to get a table for 5 together and looked a little lost. I like the funky ‘Keep Calm’ posters on the wall, with ‘Keep Calm, Weekend […] Read more…

Dinner @ Thai Garden

Thai Garden restaurant is located in Dickson, opposite the Copa. This is a place I’ve always walked past but never went in to. A living social voucher came up offering dinner for 2 including entrees, soups and mains so it was a great opportunity to try it out. For the entrees, we chose the curry […] Read more…

Dinner banquet @ Persian Mawlana

Some friends and I tried out Persian Mawlana in Dickson, located on the main strip of restaurants along Woolley Street. I can see the similarities between Persian and Afghan food with thick flat bread and rice with carrots and berries. The hot starters on the menu looked good – ashak (fresh pasta filled with scallions, […] Read more…

A taste of Peru @ Cholo’s Peruvian Restaurant

Cholo’s Peruvian Restaurant opened up in Dickson in July. It’s been on my list ever since and I finally got an opportunity to try it out last week. The restaurant is very colourful inside with bright red walls, Peruvian textiles, and pictures of Peru. The salsa and cha cha music playing inside immediately puts me […] Read more…

Brunch @ Good Brother

I decided to head into Dickson to try out Good Brother for brunch.  Besides with the locals, it isn’t a very well known cafe. It is kind of hidden around the corner towards the back near Barcode at the Dickson shops. I love the cute chalkboards that are hung up around the place. There are […] Read more…

Japanese @ Kagawa

I caught up with some friends at Kagawa Japanese Cuisine in Dickson. This is another restaurant I always pass but never have the opportunity to try. There is moderate seating capacity inside. The menu is bright and colourful, and completely packed with pictures of each dish on both sides. So much to choose from! To […] Read more…

Dickson Dumpling House – take 2

So I decided to try out more items on the menu at the Dickson Dumpling House after having a dinner banquet here with work colleagues. I made a reservation for Saturday night and we showed up on time. When I told the waitress of my booking, she yelled out something in Chinese to a fellow […] Read more…

Banquet @ Dickson Dumpling House

My foodie work colleague calls me the dumpling queen. I absolutely love eating them!! The Dickson Dumpling House was chosen as a venue for one my work dinners. I’d been here a few years back and didn’t think it was that impressive. However, two of my work colleagues have been raving about it, so I […] Read more…

Brazilian BBQ @ The Copa

I was so excited to try out Canberra’s first Brazilian churrasco restaurant – the Copa. I’d read that the massive churrasco (bbq/oven pit) that you see as you walk in was imported straight from Brazil. I organised a group booking for a Thursday night – the second night of it opening. It was also a […] Read more…
