Dinner @ Knuckles (Harmonie German Club)

Some friends and I headed to Knuckles restaurant in the Harmonie German Club for some German food for dinner.  There was a bit of a wait at the door to sign people in / sign up for membership, but we had luckily booked a table so there were no problems there. Orders are paid for […] Read more…

La Cantina calzone

$19 lunch set menu @ La Cantina

La Cantina at the Narrabundah shops offer a 2-course lunch set menu for $19 Tuesday-Fridays. During my holiday break, I headed in to try it out. The polished wooden floorboards, white linen table cloths, a brick facade and European paintings add a lovely touch of elegance. There was a choice of 3 starters and 9 […] Read more…

Secret Garden Manuka

Hidden away inside Manuka Village is a small oasis surrounded by plants that is the Secret Garden cafe. I stumbled across it while getting our wedding rings ordered at Village Jewellers (who I highly recommend btw).

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. The first thing I noticed was the inside was very small – fitting maybe 20 people. But there are plans for several […] Read more…

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…

Buddha's Kitchen Co box

Buddha’s Kitchen Co – Canberra

I was invited to sample a box of goodies by Buddha’s Kitchen Co, however all opinions are my own. Buddha’s Kitchen Co was established in June 2016, and has been supplying Canberra with various bagels, schmears and banana breads. A lot of the products are vegan and I’m told that this is purely because vegan […] Read more…

Dinner @ Thai Amarin

Tucked in between The Durham Castle Arms and Harem Turkish in Kingston’s Green Square is Thai Amarin. Some Kingston local friends and I headed there for dinner one night where I learnt it was a regular go-to for Thai take away before the Foreshore opened up the options. The inside was cosy and homely with […] Read more…

6 course lunch @ Rubicon

While still on leave, I was trying to decide where to lunch and decided to try an oldie but a goodie – Rubicon at the Griffith shops. The last time I had dined at Rubicon was during my pre-blogging days. I remember a dinner degustation where the diner was able to choose any of the […] Read more…
