Wild Duck dumplings

Dinner @ Wild Duck

A few weeks ago, J and I had a celebratory dinner at Wild Duck in Kingston. I had never eaten at Wild Duck before so this was a good opportunity to try it out. It was a Friday night and we walked in without a reservation. The restaurant offers modern Asian cuisine in a fine […] Read more…

Truffle lunch @ Otis

Last month, along with my friend Michelle (of HerCanberra), we headed to a truffle luncheon at Otis who were offering 3 courses at $58 per person. It was a Saturday and there weren’t that many people dining in, so our food arrived reasonably quickly. Course 1 – truffled house made tagliatelle with parmesan. This was […] Read more…

Dinner @ Thai Amarin

Tucked in between The Durham Castle Arms and Harem Turkish in Kingston’s Green Square is Thai Amarin. Some Kingston local friends and I headed there for dinner one night where I learnt it was a regular go-to for Thai take away before the Foreshore opened up the options. The inside was cosy and homely with […] Read more…

Brunch @ Raven & Rose

What used to be the Kingston Grind has been made over with a new look and new name – Raven & Rose. What immediately grabbed my attention was the gorgeous mural on the wall. I was dining solo for Saturday morning breakfast and was pleased to see an all day menu. Prices were average for […] Read more…

Chef’s Tasting Menu @ Otis Dining Hall

Otis Dining Hall, brain child of former Sage chef Damian Brabender, opened a couple of months ago. When I heard they had a mid-week chef’s tasting menu (5 courses for $70), I decided to try it out for lunch after coming back from overseas. I was greeted by the waiter who was wheeling out the […] Read more…

Media dinner @ Jones & Co

*I dined as a guest of Jones & Co, however all opinions are my own. A group of us foodbloggers and media were invited to attend dinner at the newly opened Jones & Co in Kingston. Jones & Co replaced Me and Mrs Jones, and is a revamped version of its predecessor. Gone are the […] Read more…

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…

Hale + Mary Kingston

New American sports bar, Hale + Mary, has been open for a few weeks replacing what used to be San Lucia Trattoria in Kingston. It’s been very popular since opening with massive HD TV screens streaming all sorts of sports games – grand prix, footy, rugby, basketball and more. There are seats along the bar, […] Read more…

Cook your own steak @ The Kingston Hotel

I’ve been in Canberra for over 8 years now, and only made my first visit to the Kingston Hotel, lovingly known as the Kingo, a couple of months ago. 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…

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…
