Casey Jones Gastropub launch

Note: I was invited to dine as a guest of Casey Jones, however all opinions are my own. The media launch of Casey Jones was held last week in the new suburb of Casey in Gungahlin. Locals are going to love the new gastropub in the neighbourhood and I am a tad jealous. The new […] Read more…

Fried chicken @ Young & Frisky

J and I headed to the new pub in Gungahlin, Young and Frisky, for a late lunch one weekend. Dubbed a fried chicken and whisky bar, Young and Frisky is the brain child of the owners of Hopscotch in Braddon. The menu includes a choice of burgers (including a fried tofu burger and prawn po […] Read more…

Dinner @ Jade Dumpling Noodle House

Located in Gungahlin, the Jade Dumpling Noodle House is a bit of a drive for me but I am trying to dine at more North-side eateries. J and I drove there the night that Canberra had all of that constant flickering lightning – a bit scary but we managed to park undercover. I was excited […] Read more…

Lunch @ Frankies at Forde

I don’t remember how I came across gastropub Frankies at Forde, but the website menu had such a variety of food that I organised a group lunch there one weekend. There is plenty of indoor seating as well as outdoor seating out by the street and in a rear courtyard. Orders including drinks are taken […] Read more…

Brunch @ The Drawing Room

I caught up with a friend who lives in Crace and decided this was the perfect opportunity to check out the newly opened The Drawing Room at the Crace shops. Located underneath a brand new apartment complex, The Drawing Room looks stylish with large windows and glass doors (that look like they will open up […] Read more…

Lunch @ Arirang Korean

My friend V and I decided it was time to head far North-side to try out some food. It was a cold winter weekend, so hot Korean food seemed like a good idea. We walked into Arirang Korean restaurant in Gungahlin (no booking made) and there were a few spare tables available. After sitting down, […] 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 @ Kokoro

My partner and I caught up with some friends over the weekend. Seeing as they live in Gungahlin, I thought it would be a good opportunity to try out a restaurant in the area. We all like Japanese food, so I made a booking at Kokoro Japanese Restaurant. I don’t drive to Gungahlin often, so […] Read more…

Afghani breakfast @ Koochi Cafe

A friend and I headed to Koochi Afghan Cafe in Gungahlin on a Sunday to try out their Afghani Bedouin breakfast (a Livingsocial deal I’d purchased). I had to wiki ‘Bedouin’ which translates in Arabic to mean nomad or wanderer. Not really knowing what Afghani food was like, I was very curious in trying this […] Read more…

Italian @ Da Nunzio

I’ve been wanting to check out the other restaurants out at Gungahlin for while now and finally managed to try out Da Nunzio Caffe Bar Ristorante. The menu on their website looks good with a range of pasta dishes, seafood and steaks. I managed to book the last table for 2 on Friday night. They […] Read more…
