Lunch @ Quizine

After my first time at Quizine, I wanted to head back for a healthy lunch. Inside, there is a large glass display cabinet filled with fresh fruit for juicing, salads and focaccias. I decided on the salmon focaccia ($8.50) that had a bit of cream cheese, capers and lots of spinach. When I took one […] Read more…

Brunch @ Trev’s

Some friends and I had Sunday brunch at Trev’s in Dickson. They must have lost our booking because when I enquired about our table, they had to quickly scramble to get a table for 5 together and looked a little lost. I like the funky ‘Keep Calm’ posters on the wall, with ‘Keep Calm, Weekend […] Read more…

Papparich take 2 and 3

Some friends and I headed back to Papparich for dinner one weeknight. We got there at 6pm, however all diners must be present before a table is provided (I’m thinking that might only be the case on weekends). There was quite a queue from 6 and we only waited about 20 minutes after all diners […] Read more…

Brunch @ The Cupping Room

I’ve been keeping a close eye on The Cupping Room – a project by Ona Coffee. Their aim is to ‘…involve, engage and educate coffee drinkers in the finer appreciation of coffee’. Located on London Circuit across the road from UniPub and the police station, the place looks impressive with the wooden paneling outside. I […] Read more…

Local businesses are utilised to source fresh produce, cows and lambs are 100% grass-fed and hormone-free, and even the chickens and eggs are free range. Burgers are advertised […] Read more…

Sunday brunch @ 39 Steps

Sunday brunch with friends was had at 39 Steps in O’Connor. The café has charm with an eclectic mix of decor and a mish-mash of high and low tables, benches and chairs. There is artwork available for purchase on the walls. On a cold rainy day, it was lovely sitting inside this cosy homely cafe. […] Read more…

First look @ Jamie’s Italian Canberra

Along with most of Canberra, I headed to Jamie’s Italian when it opened to the general public on Wednesday night. We didn’t have a booking. The website claims that online bookings are being accepted but it’s either a really bad booking system or most tables had been allocated, as I couldn’t book for any night […] Read more…

Dinner @ Chong Co Thai Kingston

The latest restaurant to open on the Kingston Foreshore is Chong Co Thai Restaurant and Bar providing some competition to contemporary Thai restaurant Morks just a few doors down. Chong Co Thai currently have two other restaurants in Belconnen and Gungahlin. We were warmly greeted by our waitress and picked a table by the window. […] 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…
