A healthy addiction @ SpudBar

Potato lovers rejoice! SpudBar recently opened in Civic selling all things spud. Though the address is on Bunda Street, it’s not actually on Bunda Street which I found out after walking up and down numerous times trying to find the place. SpudBar looks out onto Garema Place and is next to iPho. The menu is […] Read more…

Dinner @ Wood & Coal

I was looking forward to having dinner at Wood & Coal Spit & Bar at the Canberra Centre with V last weekend. Wood & Coal, located opposite Jamie’s Italian and replacing Babar’s, is the latest BBQ/wood fire/grill based eatery to open up joining the likes of Smoque, Hopscotch, Ox Eatery, and Blackfire.

Canberra’s new healthy cafe @ Eighty/Twenty Food

Walking through Braddon to grab some take away dinner, I noticed an ‘Opening Soon’ sign for Eighty/Twenty Food. Doing a little bit of research into the place, the focus is 80% on healthy good food and 20% on indulgence. Officially opening earlier this week, sister duo and owners of Eighty/Twenty, Klarisa and Tihana have brought […] Read more…

$5 dumplings @ Eat Me Drink Me

Tucked away on Dundas Court in Phillip is Eat Me Drink Me – a small cafe serving Nerissimo coffee, breakfast, sandwiches, pies and surprisingly dumplings! The inside of the cafe is as playful as it’s name. Bright blue floor tiles, fuchsia painted walls on one side and lime green walls on the other. There are […] Read more…

BrodDogs by Brodburger

A few weeks ago, Canberra burger institution Brodburger opened up its second venture, BrodDogs, in its distinctive red van in Belconnen. Selling gourmet hotdogs, BrodDogs made an appearance back in February at the Canberra National Multicultural Festival and it must’ve taken off from there! BrodDogs is located on the top floor carpark of Westfield Belconnen […] Read more…

Sri Lankan food @ Banana Leaf

When I moved to Canberra 6.5 years ago, I would often walk past Banana Leaf in civic to get to the Canberra Centre. Seeing the multiple award winning signage got me intrigued and its been on my list to try ever since. I was finally able to try it out for dinner with some friends […] Read more…

Dinner @ Aroma Indian Cuisine

A friend and I headed to Aroma Indian Cuisine in Isaacs for dinner one night. I had never heard of this restaurant until I bought a $39 Groupon deal for a 3 course meal for 2. The restaurant is located at the Isaacs shops in Woden. The decor inside looks like your typical suburban restaurant […] Read more…

Brunch @ Local Press Cafe

After my having lunch at Local Press Cafe, I headed back the next day with friends for brunch. The one page menu makes it easier to decide on what to order. Cups and a water jug are provided after sitting down. The menu does not include drinks so I didn’t know how much my soy […] Read more…

Brunch @ Doubleshot in Deakin

I used to grab take-away lunch in Woden from a cafe called Pure Oxygen. They made some fantastic toasted sandwiches. To my dismay, they closed down the Woden shop to move to Deakin under new management and a new name – Doubleshot. That was late last year. I finally made it there over the Anzac […] Read more…
