Wild Duck dumplings

Dinner @ Wild Duck

A few weeks ago, J and I had a celebratory dinner at Wild Duck in Kingston. I had never eaten at Wild Duck before so this was a good opportunity to try it out. It was a Friday night and we walked in without a reservation. The restaurant offers modern Asian cuisine in a fine […] Read more…

Trecento pizza

Pizza @ Trecento

*I was invited to dine at Trecento as a guest, however all opinions are my own. I headed to newly opened pizzeria, Trecento, in Manuka for their media launch a few weeks ago.

Truffle lunch @ Otis

Last month, along with my friend Michelle (of HerCanberra), we headed to a truffle luncheon at Otis who were offering 3 courses at $58 per person. It was a Saturday and there weren’t that many people dining in, so our food arrived reasonably quickly. Course 1 – truffled house made tagliatelle with parmesan. This was […] Read more…

A lot of the products are vegan and I’m told that this is purely because vegan […] Read more…

The inside was cosy and homely with […] Read more…

Butterbings @ 38 Espresso

Last Friday, 38 Espresso on the Kingston Foreshore sold a limited number of Melbourne’s butterbing cookie sandwiches. I headed down there around 9.30am, and must have bought the last few butterbings. The two flavours available that day were salted caramel and peanut butter ($5.50 each). I loved the soft dark chocolate cookie. The softness made […] Read more…

Breakfast @ 1 or 2 Cafe

Taking over the old Grande’s spot in Manuka, is 1 or 2 Cafe. I was warmly greeted when I entered the cafe early on a Saturday morning. The family-run cafe was small and cosy – the front counter’s display filled with pastries and sandwiches, and the back wall loaded with fresh loaves of bread. Who’s […] Read more…
