Breakfast degustation @ Pod Food

It had been years since I’d last tried Pod Food’s 4-course breakfast degustation – yes, you can get a breakfast degustation ($40) in Canberra! I had absolutely no plans one Sunday, and decided to treat myself. I made sure I arrived early (8.30am) as I didn’t have a reservation, and was the second diner there. […] Read more…

Winter Lunch @ Pialligo Estate Farmhouse

The Farmhouse Restaurant at Pialligo Estate was recently renovated, (they knocked down a whole wall), to make the space inside a bit more spacious. It reopened for business and we booked in for a winter’s lunch with family. The new winter menu had just been introduced and I was really looking forward to it. To […] Read more…

Dinner @ Pod Food

Some friends and I dined at Pod Food a few weeks ago for dinner using a Livingsocial voucher which discounted our 5 course degustation to about $60 per person. The last time I was there was for a 4 course breakfast so it’s been a while since I’ve sampled their non-breakfast items. We were seated […] 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…

Vegetarian for a day @ Sweet Bones Bakery, Pialligo Estate Farmhouse and Au Lac

Warning: Long post and photo heavy. It’s the Year of the Sheep. I’m usually back in Perth for the Chinese New Year holidays, but due to the timing of other things going on in my life, it was best to stay in Canberra this year. Being a weekday, I took Chinese New Year’s day off […] Read more…

Roast pork and lamb rolls @ The Spit Shack

The Spit Shack in Pialligo have the best roast pork and lamb rolls in Canberra. A big statement to make but it’s true. As the name suggests, both pig and lamb are spit-roasted on site. Located at a nursery in Pialligo (near the airport), there’s a large sign at the front identifying that you’ve reached […] Read more…

Breakfast Degustation @ Podfood

Pod Food in Pialligo recently introduced a breakfast degustation to its weekend menu. 4 breakfast courses (two sweet and two savoury) for $40. I’ve only been to Pod Food for lunch, during my pre-blogging days, and I remember loving every course of the 3-course set lunch menu. I’ve been meaning to go back but never […] Read more…

Pulled pork burger @ Rodney’s Garden Cafe

I’ve found a hidden gem in Canberra – that is Rodney’s Garden Cafe in Pialligo (near the airport). The cafe is located within a plant nursery, Rodney’s Plants Plus, so this isn’t exactly on everyone’s radar. The doors into the cafe are a bit run down, but I love the cute mosaic sign on top.
