Dinner @ Ethiopia Down Under

Located at the Pearce shops, Ethiopia Down Under has been quietly serving delicious Ethiopian food to the local community. I first dined there years ago and tried the traditional mosob dining, where you get one massive plate of various dishes to share and eat it all with your hands. I never took a photo (pre-blogging […] Read more…

Replacing Smoque at the Abode Hotel in Woden is Number 10 Restaurant. Some fellow foodbloggers and I headed there for dinner to check the place out. The restaurant is very spacious with a large indoor dining area as well as the outdoor deck. We started off with the smoked ham hock, taleggio and green pea croquettes […] Read more…

Brunch @ Stand By Me

A group of friends and I recently caught up for breakfast at Stand By Me in Lyons. I’d been there once before, about two years ago, so it was definitely time to make another visit. Bookings were not accepted on weekends, but we were advised to get there early as the cafe gets packed quickly. […] Read more…

Nepalese @ The Hungry Buddha

I dined as a guest of The Hungry Buddha, however all opinions are my own. J and I headed in for dinner at The Hungry Buddha in Curtin one weeknight, courtesy of the owners of the restaurant.

I liked that the tables were inlaid with a brass(?) dish/tray in the middle. […] Read more…

Just Feed Me Dave @ Pistachio Dining

Some friends and I took advantage of a Livingsocial deal at Pistachio Dining where we received the ‘Just Feed Me Dave’ degustation for about $30 per person. It is usually about $65 per person so this was a real bargain. The last time I was at Pistachio was in early 2014 and I remembered liking […] Read more…

The new Ricardo’s @ Space Kitchen

I’ve been eagerly awaiting the opening of Ricardo’s Cafe’s second venture in Woden that has been kept heavily under wraps. Ricardo’s Cafe in Jamison offers a fantastic and tempting range of cakes and cronuts so I couldn’t wait to see what the new concept cafe would be offering. Ricardo’s revealed the name of its new […] Read more…

There are 14 types of schnitzel rolls/wraps to choose from, your plain schnitzel or parma with salad and chips, gourmet salads, smaller snack sized options like schnitz sticks, and […] Read more…

Brunch @ Red Brick Espresso

One of the cafes that has long been on my list of places to try is suburban favourite Red Brick Espresso at the Curtin Shops. This cafe has been around for a while and it seems that everyone I know has dined here. I knew it was located at the Curtin Shops but I didn’t […] Read more…
