C Dine Bar at the Kingston Foreshore

I had been eagerly awaiting the opening of this restaurant for months. The first to open on the Kingston Foreshore, C Dine Bar specialises in steak and seafood. We went for dinner during opening week. The restaurant is near the water and will be popular in summer when it opens up its foldable glass doors. […] Read more…

Belluci’s Manuka

A group of friends and I dined at Belluci’s Manuka for a birthday dinner. The inside of Belluci’s Manuka is relatively new and fitted out quite nicely. Belluci’s serve nice Italian food but I’ve had so many bad experiences with the chain (there’s another Belluci’s restaurant in Phillip). I’ve found the wait time is ridiculous […] Read more…

Lunch @ Alchemy Bar & Restaurant

I checked out Alchemy Bar & Restaurant in Manuka with a fellow foodie during the first few weeks of its opening. There are quite a few nice things on the menu so I was excited to try it out. The first thing you notice upon entering the restaurant is all the space. There aren’t that […] Read more…

Cakes @ Flute Bakery

This post is an amalgamation of the times I’ve visited the Flute Bakery and their tasty treats. I’d heard of Flute Bakery from several people, but as they’re opening times are Monday to Friday 9am-3pm, it’s almost impossible to visit. Earlier this year, on a day off, I decided to check this place out for […] Read more…

Dinner @ Me & Mrs Jones

I organised a group dinner at Me & Mrs Jones in Kingston with some friends. When I rang up to make a booking, they informed me that there were only spare tables in the enclosed heated outdoor area. It was a cold Canberra’s Winter’s night but the staff member assured me it would be warm […] Read more…

Bean & Grain bagel

A friend suggested I check out Bean and Grain for their awesome bagels. I must admit, I’m not a huge fan of bagels – they’re usually dry and dense. Bean and Grain bake their bagels and other breads fresh every day. Located at the Fyshwick fresh food markets, you need to get in early-ish (before […] Read more…

Yumcha @ China Plate at Kingston

When I found out the new-ish China Plate restaurant in Kingston was serving yumcha on weekends, I put it on my foodie bucket list to try out. There are two yumcha banquets available – standard and premium. We went with the premium banquet. Each person receives one of each yumcha dish. At $40 per person, […] Read more…

Dinner @ Malamay

Malamay is part of the Chairman Group of restaurants made up of Chairman & Yip, and the Lanterne Rooms. Malamay specialises in South West Chinese cuisine. To complete the trifecta, I decided to organise a group dinner here. Malamay is modern Asian restaurant, dimly lit with black and red decor throughout and long dark wooden […] Read more…

High tea @ Cafe Societea

I read about this new place that served high tea in an article on Hercanberra. There is such a ‘princess’ feeling when going to high tea. Something so special about sharing food and gossip with close girlfriends. The article stated you’d have to book about 2 months in advance to get a table. I got […] Read more…
