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…

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

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…

Brunch @ Raven & Rose

What used to be the Kingston Grind has been made over with a new look and new name – Raven & Rose. What immediately grabbed my attention was the gorgeous mural on the wall. I was dining solo for Saturday morning breakfast and was pleased to see an all day menu. Prices were average for […] Read more…

Chef’s Tasting Menu @ Otis Dining Hall

Otis Dining Hall, brain child of former Sage chef Damian Brabender, opened a couple of months ago. When I heard they had a mid-week chef’s tasting menu (5 courses for $70), I decided to try it out for lunch after coming back from overseas. I was greeted by the waiter who was wheeling out the […] Read more…

Lunch @ Yarralumla Gallery and the Oaks Brasserie

On a leisurely Saturday afternoon, J and I were meeting up with a few friends at the dog park in Yarralumla. I was hungry so we stopped by the Yarralumla Gallery and Oaks Brassierie for a bite to eat first. I had only been to the brasserie once previously where many scones with jam and […] Read more…
