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…

Dinner @ Thip’s Thai

I caught up with some friends North-side for dinner. Having heard that Thip’s Thai in Belconnen was authentic, I was keen to try out it out.

Weekend lunch @ The Merchant

One lazy warm weekend, J and I were strolling past the Kingston Foreshore looking for lunch. We ended up at The Merchant Café, mainly because we knew they made iced coffees and shakes, and we were after something cold to drink. We were lucky enough to grab the last popular outdoor table underneath the shade […] Read more…

‘The One’ and other food vendors @ Westside

I was contacted by Tom Luxton, co-owner of the newest food stall to open at Westside Acton Park, to try out their popular dishes on offer. The One offers a variety of pressed buns, Thai tacos and soon chicken wings once […] Read more…

Kinn has replaced Wagamama along the restaurant strip outside the Centre. Kinn means ‘eat’ in Thai and we were starving! A sign outside states to wait […] Read more…
