Tang Dynasty @ the Kingston Foreshore

I’ve been eagerly awaiting for the re-opening of Tang Dynasty at the Kingston Foreshore. It used to be located in Kingston’s Green Square, a popular spot for politicians and senior public servants, but closed down about 10 years ago. Now, the original owner of the restaurant has made made a comeback on the Foreshore. I […] Read more…

Lunch @ The Merchant Deli & Cafe

I’ve been back to The Merchant Deli & Cafe at the Kingston Foreshore a few times after my first visit in September. A change that I immediately noticed was the glass display cabinet filled with meats, cheeses and more was gone! It’s been replaced with a wooden counter as kitchen staff needed more space. It’s […] Read more…

Summer menu @ Local Press Cafe

Local Press Cafe is my local breakfast spot and being an early morning person, I usually go for a walk or bike ride around the lake before stopping in for breakfast. The cafe offers completely wholefood and healthy options for both breakfast and lunch. I can never pass on a cold pressed juice ($7) from […] Read more…

2 for 1 tapas @ The Rum Bar

Since my first visit to The Rum Bar at the Kingston Foreshore, I’ve been back a few times for drinks and tapas with friends. When I heard that 2 for 1 Tapas had been introduced on Tuesday nights (Toofer Tuesdays), and there was a new chef AND a new summer menu, I couldn’t wait to […] Read more…

Dinner @ The Dock – Kingston Foreshore

New sports bar/pub, The Dock, is the latest addition to the Kingston Foreshore whose co-owners include Brumbies and Wallabies players Scott Fardy and Ben Alexander. I headed there one weeknight to meet up with some friends, not expecting it to be so busy! All outdoor tables were full of people enjoying a drink after work […] Read more…

Good Food Month Issan Odyssey lunch @ Morks

During Good Food Month, I booked into Morks for the Issan Odyssey lunch ($40) – a one off lunch providing street food from the Northern Thai region. We were lucky to have a table outside on a sunny warm day. Two of us enjoyed the Issan Odyssey lunch while my other two gluten intolerant friends […] Read more…

The Merchant Deli & Cafe at the Kingston Foreshore is having its soft opening this weekend. A limited selection of items on the menu is available to try out with the full menu being launched this Tuesday. Walking past outside, you can’t help but notice the brightly coloured glossy tiles along the back wall and […] Read more…

Breakfast @ Walt and Burley

Walt and Burley recently introduced its weekend breakfast menu. There was talk about it opening for  breakfast after it had settled in to the Kingston Foreshore so I was super excited to try it out. Love the idea of brunch by the lakeside in Spring. The one page menu has enough to satisfy most people […] Read more…

Take 2 @ Chong Co Thai

A few weeks ago, I went to a birthday dinner at Chong Co Thai along the Kingston Foreshore. My first visit there didn’t impress me but I have heard good things about the massamun curries and other dishes from friends. We were seated outside under the warmth of the outdoor heaters where we were protected […] Read more…

New Thai restaurant Coconine @ Kingston Foreshore

Another new Thai restaurant, Coconine, has opened up at the Kingston Foreshore in addition to Morks and Chong Co Thai. By far the smallest restaurant of the lot, Coconine offers some nice culinary surprises. I understand that the Head Chef’s name is Nine (not sure about the Coco part). The fit out is comfortable and […] Read more…
