Secret/not so secret backyard pizza @ Pizza Arte

Did you know that in Kingston, there is a house where you can buy pizza from its backyard? Okay, so backyard pizza sounds a little dodgy, but it’s completely legit. Pizza Arte has been open for 17 years, first opening its backyard in 1999, and has since been run by the same Romanian family. They […] Read more…

Dinner @ Vincent

New wine bar and eatery Vincent, opened up a few months ago at Governor Place in Barton. After hearing good things about it, a friend booked dinner there for a group of us on a Friday night. We were split over 2 tables as there were 9 of us altogether. The first thing I noticed […] Read more…

Mussel Sunday @ C Seafood and Oyster Bar

A fellow foodie advised me that C Seafood and Oyster Bar (formerly known as C Dine Bar) on the Kingston Foreshore were doing a 1/2kg of mussels for $15 or 1kg for $25. Since the Little Brussels Belgian Beer Cafe closed in Kingston, I’ve been trying to find another place that sold 1kg of mussels. […] Read more…

Brunch @ Public

J and I decided to head to Public in Manuka for brunch one weekend. I’ve been to Public on a few occasions, mainly during the evening with work colleagues but never for brunch. It was such a beautiful sunny morning that we left the car at home and walked to the Manuka shops instead. We […] Read more…

Cook your own steak @ The Kingston Hotel

I remember my friends talking about cooking their own cheap steaks years ago but never felt inspired to try it out myself. I’d rather pay for […] Read more…

Brunch @ Urban Pantry

Urban Pantry in Manuka went through some renovations late last year with a new look restaurant and menu. The outside patio that used to be covered by plastic blinds has been turned into an official deck attached to the eatery. With a wall knocked down, the space has really opened up. I had made a […] Read more…

Burgers @ Brodburger

In its early days, Brodburger started off in a bright red food van stationed at Bowen Park in Barton/Kingston. Locals came from all over the Canberra region just for its burgers. The queue was notorious – at least a 1 hour wait for the best burgers in Canberra. Fast forward a few years and Brodburger […] Read more…
