First look @ Cinnabar (Kingston Foreshore)

*I was invited to dine as a guest, however all opinions are my own. As mentioned in last year’s post on what’s opening at the Kingston Foreshore, Cinnabar is a new Asian Fusion restaurant. I got a sneak peek at Cinnabar last night and learnt that it focuses on bringing a new modern spin to […] Read more…

Lunch @ Cisco’s Restaurante Mexicano

Some friends and I headed to Cisco’s Restaurante Mexicano in Kingston after walking past it a few weeks ago. Seeing as there aren’t may Mexican food options in Canberra, it was a must try for blogging purposes. We were there for Sunday lunch where there was only one other table of diners in the establishment. […] Read more…

Italian @ La Dolce Vita

A few months ago, V and I were going to head to Salotto at the Kingston shops on a Sunday night but realised it wasn’t open when only a dark locked up restaurant greeted us. We had no choice but to find somewhere else to eat and we were both in the mood for Italian. […] Read more…

New menu @ Walt and Burley

A friend had her birthday lunch at Walt and Burley on the Kingston Foreshore. It had been a while since I’d dined here and I noticed a brand new menu. Since I wanted dessert, I decided to order the pulled confit duck salad ($28) as my main. The salad was really just rocket. A LOT […] Read more…

The name ‘hoi polloi’ is Greek for ‘the masses’ and is a fitting […] Read more…

Weekend lunch @ The Merchant

One lazy warm weekend, J and I were strolling past the Kingston Foreshore looking for lunch. We ended up at The Merchant Café, mainly because we knew they made iced coffees and shakes, and we were after something cold to drink. We were lucky enough to grab the last popular outdoor table underneath the shade […] Read more…

Modern Asian @ XO restaurant

New modern Asian fusion restaurant, XO, has opened at the Narrabundah shops replacing The Artisan. The restaurant is easy to spot with a large artistic mural outside. Taking on the same narrow space as the previous eatery, the inside of XO is surprisingly bright and light. The exposed brick walls have been painted white, there’s […] Read more…
