Ramen @ Ramentic

In case you hadn’t noticed, a new ramen shop opened up on Lonsdale Street in Braddon. Ramentic is located in a small nook in the Mode 1 building. Canberrans must really love their ramen, as on Ramentic’s opening day, they sold out of ALL the broth including the portion saved for the weekend! There really […] Read more…

The Duxton breakfast

Breakfast @ The Duxton

*I was kindly invited to dine courtesy of The Duxton, however all opinions are my own. The Duxton in O’Connor recently introduced its weekend breakfast service, and we were invited to check them out. With so many new hipster places popping up around town, The Duxton wanted to focus on the breakfast classics with big […] Read more…

All you can eat @ Eightysix

My fellow foodblogger friends and I dined at Eightysix in Braddon for their all you can eat feast. Yep that’s right, for $86 per person you can have whatever you want and order seconds or thirds!

Cheap eats @ Tu Do Vietnamese

I only managed to try the popular Vietnamese restaurant, Tu Do, in O’Connor very recently to the chagrin of my foodie friends. Located at the O’Connor shops, Tu Do was not hard to find and filled with diners. The restaurant was a lot more modern than expected – I loved the dark timber floorboards. It […] Read more…

Dinner @ Zaab

Zaab is a trendy new Laotian/Thai joint in Braddon offering a modern take to these cuisines. The place was packed out on a Friday night with a queue of people in front of what was a reservation lectern waiting to be seated. My friend and I had no booking and there were no tables left […] Read more…

This used to be a small shop inside Fitness First in the Canberra Centre, and has now expanded to its own separate cafe. The all day menu is quite extensive making it a little difficult to decide on what to eat! For […] Read more…

Vegetarian @ Au Lac

The last time I dined at Au Lac in Dickson was for Chinese New Year about two years ago. I can’t believe it’s been that long. Being one of the most popular vegetarian restaurants in Canberra, I was happy to go back. I noticed the restaurant has had a bit of a revamp including new […] Read more…

Lebanese cuisine @ La Mono

La Mono in Braddon offers a variety of Lebanese cuisine and charcoal chicken. My first thought was that it was great to see the eatery had thought about ventilation with the kitchen’s smoky BBQ pit sealed off from the rest of the restaurant so we didn’t leave with a smoky smell on our clothes. The […] Read more…

The Gods Cafe and Bar @ ANU

The Gods Cafe and Bar at the Australian National University had been on my list of cafes to try for a long time. As it’s only open Monday to Friday, I had to wait for a day off before I could visit. After coming back from overseas, I had a few days off work so […] Read more…
