Mooncake Festival 2016

Happy Mooncake Festival! Aka the Mid-Autumn Festival (Autumn over in Asia). I headed to Canberra’s first Mooncake Festival held at the Kingston Old Bus Depot last weekend. Sadly, there was really only one stall selling mooncakes but I made my purchases anyway (I didn’t have time to go to Dickson and look in the various […] Read more…

Eating in Tokyo – Part 6 – Akihabara, Roppongi, Odaiba

Following on from Eating in Tokyo – Part 5 – Narisawa… Akihabara Akihabara is otherwise known as ‘electric town’, (what Akiba in Civic is named after), and is the geek hub of Tokyo. Obviously it looks a lot more electric by night when everything is all lit up. My sister loves anime and manga so […] Read more…

The Black Sheep – Braddon

Replacing what was Mood Food in Braddon, is Black Sheep Bar & Grill. The fit out instead is basically the same with the addition of a funky art print of a ram on one wall. A friend and I headed there for breakfast to check it out. We were both greeted warmly upon entering and […] Read more…

Filipino @ Delikase (Gold Creek)

I first came across new Filipino restaurant Delikase in Gold Creek while on a metrogaine around Gungahlin a couple of months ago.

Social & Co – Civic

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…

Eating in Tokyo – Part 4 – Shinjuku and Ginza

Following on from Eating in Tokyo – Part 3 – More Markets and Depachikas… Shinjuku We had to stop in Shinjuku, known as one of the many foodie destinations in Tokyo. I found this Time Out article on the Best 20 Ramen in Tokyo very handy (too bad I couldn’t visit all 20!) I picked […] Read more…

Japanese @ Pepper Lunch

I saw fast food chain Pepper Lunch everywhere in Tokyo but found there was always something better to try. When I came back to Canberra, the first Pepper Lunch eatery had opened in Civic. Pepper Lunch is a DIY teppan eatery where the majority of items are cooked by the diner on sizzling hot plates. […] Read more…
