Hero Sushi – Woden

I felt like sushi and have gone to Hero Sushi at Westfield Woden on a few occasions. It is located in an odd spot – next door to Price Attack near Coles. The shop has a nice open seating area and you can see the sushi chef slicing up fresh raw salmon on the kitchen […] Read more…

Croissant D’or – open in Woden

Croissant D’or finally opened today at Westfield Woden. I’ve been walking past anticipating its opening for the last few weeks as it was meant to open in September. I love the feature wall they have of Paris and the Eiffel Tower. It’s quite a small space and only fits a few tables and chairs. There […] Read more…

Lunch @ Santa Lucia Trattoria

I headed to Santa Lucia Trattoria in Swinger Hill for a weekday lunch with a work colleague. Entry is through the side where there is a rather large outdoor dining area. Tables are covered in red and white checked tablecloths. The only thing missing was some Italian music playing in the background. The menu is […] Read more…

Haute dogs @ Snag Stand

I hadn’t been back to Snag Stand in while, and on a cold windy Friday, I felt like something naughty. Snag Stand sells ‘haute dogs’ – artisanal and hand crafted sausages.  The menu has changed slightly since my last meal here, and now they’ve added a new line – Haute Burgers.  This time, I chose […] Read more…

Opening of new cafe – Quizine

Walking into work early this morning, I was greeted by a friendly man standing on the street who informed me that a new cafe/coffee shop just a few doors down had opened up, offering free coffees to everyone today. Who can pass up free coffee?! The cafe is called Quizine, located on Botany Street in […] Read more…

Noggi Frozen Yogurt @ Woden

Frozen yogurt store Noggi opened its second store at Westfield Woden today. There was a long queue, even at 2.30pm, for their buy one get one free opening day special. Flavours include original, watermelon, coconut, mango, blood orange and taro. I chose 2 flavours in a regular sized cup ($6.50) – the watermelon and blood […] Read more…

Lunch @ Thai Spice

Thai Spice in Woden serves amazing curry puffs and decent Thai food. I come here quite regularly being so close to work. The pad thai chicken and prawns is my usual order. My work colleagues tell me it has changed ownership over the years and isn’t as good as it used to be. It still […] Read more…

Baitong Laos and Thai

Having walked through the Cooleman Court shops a few times now (my local shops soon!) I’ve seen the sign for Baitong Laos and Thai Cuisine and have been meaning to try it out. A fellow work foodie and I managed to duck out for a weekday lunch to give it a go. My foodie friend […] Read more…

My’s Vietnamese

I’ve heard a lot of good things about My’s Vietnamese restaurant. Located at the Cooleman Court shops in Weston Creek. I was able to duck in for a weekday lunch to check it out with a work colleague. There were only a handful of diners during that weekday. We ordered the Chef’s Special Beef Hot […] Read more…

Early bird dinner @ Peppered Prawn

The Peppered Prawn in Woden offers a $35 early bird dinner. This includes 2 courses – an entrée and main, or main and dessert. (I’ve noticed they’ve changed this to just entrée and main now.) Being a massive dessert fan, I went with the main and dessert combo. I’d already picked out what I wanted […] Read more…
