The Cupping Room re-run

I haven’t written another post about The Cupping Room since my first visit when it opened in 2013. I’ve been back several more times now, so this is a compilation of some of these visits (and of the photos I could dig up). The ‘Eat All Day’ menu has its perks meaning you can eat […] Read more…

Fox & Bow Cafe re-run

Some friends and I headed back to Fox & Bow Cafe in Farrer to check out the new menu since our last visit in January. I was impressed with the menu, prices and vibe so I was keen to go back. First up, I ordered the Bruno Mars ($6.90) shake consisting of milk, chocolate gelato, […] Read more…

Taste and Test – April 2015 @ Sage

With my fellow foodie friends Mr STTA and Dr L, we booked into Sage’s Taste and Test night, now in its fourth year. I’ve attended a few times in the past (see links to March 2014, October 2013, August 2013) and I always think this is such a worthwhile event. For $75, you get 5 […] Read more…

Lunch @ Eschalot

A few weeks ago, some friends and I headed to Berrima in NSW (1.5 hour drive north of Canberra) for birthday lunch #3. Eschalot Restaurant has won multiple awards as you can see once walking into the reception area including retaining one chef’s hat in the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide. We were shown […] Read more…

Lunch @ The Merchant Deli & Cafe

I’ve been back to The Merchant Deli & Cafe at the Kingston Foreshore a few times after my first visit in September. A change that I immediately noticed was the glass display cabinet filled with meats, cheeses and more was gone! It’s been replaced with a wooden counter as kitchen staff needed more space. It’s […] Read more…

Brunch @ Ona on the Lawns

Happy New Year all! I hope everyone had a peaceful and relaxing Christmas and New Year’s break. Thankfully, there were a few cafes and restaurants still open during the Christmas break in Canberra. I headed to Ona on the Lawns in Manuka for brunch with my friend Mr STTA. I’d been to Ona before its […] Read more…

Brunch @ Fox & Bow and GIVEAWAY!

Tucked away on the corner of the Farrer Shops is Fox & Bow, a cafe that recently opened up. I got there early on a Sunday morning, around 9.45am, to find a few people enjoying the sunshine outside. You can’t help noticing the large colourful mural along the wall outside which has additional seating. One […] Read more…

First time @ The Boathouse by the Lake

I dined at the Boathouse by the Lake for the first time a few weekends ago. Friends had given me a gift voucher for my last birthday and it was time to cash it in. With my two gluten intolerant buddies, Mr STTA and Dr L, I made a 6pm reservation noting that we were […] Read more…

A healthy addiction @ SpudBar

Potato lovers rejoice! SpudBar recently opened in Civic selling all things spud. Though the address is on Bunda Street, it’s not actually on Bunda Street which I found out after walking up and down numerous times trying to find the place. SpudBar looks out onto Garema Place and is next to iPho. The menu is […] Read more…

Good Food Month Issan Odyssey lunch @ Morks

During Good Food Month, I booked into Morks for the Issan Odyssey lunch ($40) – a one off lunch providing street food from the Northern Thai region. We were lucky to have a table outside on a sunny warm day. Two of us enjoyed the Issan Odyssey lunch while my other two gluten intolerant friends […] Read more…
