Molto Italian @ the Kingston Foreshore

Another new eatery to join Cinnabar, 7th and Bake, and Beef & Barley at the new end of the Kingston Foreshore, is Molto Italian. Headed by Carlo Tosolini, the same guy who owned the now closed Tosolini’s in Civic, I couldn’t help but go in with high expectations for decent portion sizes and lots of […] Read more…

Burgers @ Beef & Barley

The next eatery to join the recently opened Cinnabar and 7th and Bake at the Kingston Foreshore is Beef & Barley. Offering gourmet burgers and craft beers, Beef & Barley has a very laid back hipster vibe minus the plants with chipboard and timber decor. The outdoor seating provides a combination of benches and high […] Read more…

Breakfast @ Pialligo Estate Garden Pavilions

After my experience at the launch of the Pialligo Estate Garden Pavilions late last year, I was keen to go back to try out the newly introduced breakfast menu. Michelle of HerCanberra and I made a breakfast date last week to check it out. We walked past and peeked into Pialligo Estate’s second kitchen in […] Read more…

Bookplate @ the National Library of Australia

My friend and I met up for lunch at Bookplate in the National Library. I hadn’t been to Bookplate in about 5 years but knew that it had been revamped in the last year or two. The menu has certainly been updated with some trendy items for lunch such as baos and chimichanga. For breakfast, […] Read more…

Brunch @ 7th and Bake

Another new eatery to open at the Kingston Foreshore is 7th and Bake, a bakery and patisserie, offering an all day breakfast menu and lunch. There are also freshly squeezed juices, milkshakes, coffee and tea available. There’s colourful outdoor seating with lake views while the timber wraparound counter with stools on one side with a […] Read more…

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…

Garden Pavilions are open @ Pialligo Estate Farmhouse

A group of us Canberra foodbloggers were invited to Pialligo Estate Farmhouse to enjoy its garden pavilions which officially opened two weekends ago. The garden pavilions (you can’t miss them outside the main farmhouse restaurant) fit around 20-25 people and can be booked if you have a special function or occasion. Two pavilions can be […] Read more…
