Ribs @ Arnold’s Ribs & Pizza

I was really in the mood for ribs one Friday night, so J and I drove down to Tuggeranong to try out Arnold’s Ribs & Pizza near the Hyperdome. Although there were a few tables inside, Arnold’s is mainly a take away joint. We were only there for the ribs and focused on the ribs […] Read more…

Brunch @ The Public Place

J’s parents live in Tuggeranong and told me about a new cafe at their local Chisholm shops that took over from an old bakery. Located right next to Coles, is newly opened The Public Place. Searching for whatever I could find on them, I saw very cute looking Pokeball cake pops on their Instagram page […] Read more…

Burgers @ Ace High Eatery & Bar

J and I happened to be in Tuggeranong on a Saturday afternoon and decided to have lunch at one of the eateries near the Hyperdome. Walking past the main restaurant strip on Anketell Street, we spotted Ace High Eatery & Bar which offered burgers, hot dogs, milkshakes and beer. That sounded good so we went […] Read more…

Lazy May’s Cafe (Tuggeranong)

I first heard about Lazy May’s Cafe in Tuggeranong thanks to Mouthless Mutters’ blog. I was keen to try it out after looking through the menu and picked out a couple of items to try. Dishes include dessert sliders for breakfast, salads, toasted paninis, tapas, beef short ribs, various burgers including a 16 hour pulled […] Read more…

Dinner @ Shanghai Dumpling King

Those living south-side can now access more dumplings from Shanghai Dumpling King at the Erindale shops in Tuggeranong. This is the sister restaurant to Shanghai Dumpling Cafe in Acton / Civic. The restaurant is much smaller than the Acton version, probably about half the size. Clean and simple with a feature wall of smooth timber […] Read more…

Brunch @ Common Grounds Cafe

A few friends and I stopped in at Common Grounds Cafe in Gowrie for brunch one Saturday morning. I’d never heard of this cafe until reading a Canberra Weekly article about the place. Located at the Gowrie shops in Tuggeranong, the cafe is easy to find. Just follow the signs to the shops. At 10am, […] Read more…

Dinner @ Indian Grill

I caught up with a friend for dinner at Indian Grill in Greenway. It’s not on the main strip of restaurants but on the other side near Athllon Drive in its own mini business centre area. I didn’t think it was a great location, but then again, the Centrelink/Department of Human Services building is across […] Read more…

Discovering Peppercress

Warning: a long post and photo heavy! I was invited to dine and review Peppercress restaurant for the Terra Felix wine dinner held on Thursday.Β  I must admit, I had never heard of Peppercress before (it opened up about 9 years ago), probably because it’s located inside the Canberra Southern Cross Club in Tuggeranong. Head […] Read more…

Dinner @ Little Istanbul

On Sunday night, I caught up with some friends for dinner and we decided to head south-side to Tuggeranong for some Turkish food at Little Istanbul. I love Turkish food! The last time we tried coming here was on a Friday night and it was completely packed out. It was pretty quiet on the Sunday. […] Read more…

Lunch @ Bread Nerds

On a day off, I decided to head out to Hume to try out Bread Nerds for lunch. Having seen it at the Kingston Bus Depot markets (also trading as That Bagel Place) and reading some good reviews about it, I thought it was time to give it a go. Bread Nerds is located in […] Read more…
