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…

Dining @ Salotto

Replacing The Kennedy Room in Kingston, is newly opened Salotto Bar and Kitchen. By the same owners as Santa Lucia Trattoria down the road, this modern Italian eatery offers the shorter version of Santa Lucia’s menu. You’ll find some tempting starters such as an antipasto platter, arancini balls and zucchini fritters. Pastas are homemade and […] Read more…

Brunch @ Muse

After the recent launch of Joe’s Bar at the East Hotel in Kingston, Muse has opened up nearby. Part book store, part wine bar and part cafe, Muse offers a sleek new hangout all day and night. There was no signage out the front of the East Hotel (yet) so J and I walked in […] Read more…

Italian fare @ Joe’s Bar

* I dined as a guest of Joe’s Bar, however all opinions are my own. I was kindly invited to try out the newly opened Joe’s Bar located at the East Hotel in Kingston, where Ox Eatery is also situated. Owned by brother and sister duo, Dan and Dion Bisa, who also run East Hotel, […] Read more…

Mr Scroll @ Old Bus Depot Markets

On a lazy Sunday morning, I was blogging at home when my partner J, who was at the Old Bus Depot Markets, texted me a photo of a new stall Mr Scroll. I immediately raced across the road to get my scroll fix. There were 9 different types of scrolls on display that day for […] Read more…

Dinner @ Me and Mrs Jones

My partner J and I had dinner close to home at Me and Mrs Jones in Kingston when we both didn’t feel like cooking that night. I hadn’t dined there in a long time (I’ve previously found it to be very hit and miss) so it was interesting to see the updated menu. There were […] Read more…

Latino American tapas @ Mazorca

A new Latino American restaurant is in town. Mazorca offers Central American, Salvadoran and Mexican style food in Kingston’s green square (replacing Bodega de Pintxos). The fit out inside hasn’t really changed but I could see a new mural on the back wall. The mural of farmers picking corn fits the name of the restaurant […] Read more…

Good Food Month @ Silo Bakery

As part of Good Food Month, Silo Bakery in Kingston is holding a 3-course set lunch menu for $38. This offer is available Tuesday to Saturday lunch during the month of October. I was greeted at the door and shown to a table. The set lunch menu was explained to me and includes either a […] Read more…

Vietnamese street food @ Saigon Foodies

Saigon Foodies opened up about 3 weeks ago in Kingston’s Green Square. The signage outside implies the place is all about Vietnamese street food. I was excited to see a picture of a banh mi! The inside is very small (I actually don’t remember what used to be here?) with only 5 small tables in […] Read more…
