$50 degustaton @ Les Bistronomes

I’d heard about a 5 course lunch for $50 at Les Bistronomes in Braddon and had always been meaning to check it out. I finally got together with fellow foodies to try it out one Saturday. The eatery had such a comfortable vibe with soft comfy chairs and our table right by the fireplace (though […] Read more…

It opened in November 2015 with about a month’s break after Christmas and New Year. Buvette is a modern and sleek […] Read more…

Dessert @ La Sable Patisserie

I first heard about La Sable Patisserie on the radio, via Scotty and Nige, and took my sweet tooth there on the weekend. La Sable Patisserie can be found in Mitchell and opened up a month ago. I spotted the patisserie when I saw a bunch of cars parked on the side of the road […] Read more…

Dinner @ Bistro Guillaume Perth

There are so many places I want to check out in the Perth food scene. Offering modern French cuisine, I picked Bistro Guillaume at the Crown Casino for dinner with a friend after looking at the menu and seeing a few pictures of the restaurant and, of course, the food. The original restaurant opened up […] Read more…

Brunch @ Croissant D’or

Croissant D’or in Woden have an all-day breakfast menu and I’ve been wanting to try their smoked salmon bagel with scrambled eggs ($12.90). I headed there with a work colleague one weekday and ordered just that! Sadly, I was disappointed with it. The scrambled eggs were nothing special, just plain and not very flavoursome. I […] Read more…

Croissant D’or – open in Woden

Croissant D’or finally opened today at Westfield Woden. I’ve been walking past anticipating its opening for the last few weeks as it was meant to open in September. I love the feature wall they have of Paris and the Eiffel Tower. It’s quite a small space and only fits a few tables and chairs. There […] Read more…

Cannelle @ the Bus Depot Markets

Walking around the bus depot markets in Kingston with half of Canberra, I did a lap of the mini food court. The crepe stall (forget what they’re called) had some samples of something cake-like on the counter. Not knowing what it was, I sampled a tiny sliver. I fell in love with this instantly and […] Read more…
