Little Matcha Girl – Perth

I head back to Perth every year to see my family and always check out Instagram for the latest in food and restaurants. As I love all things matcha, I came across Little Matcha Girl, a small French-Japanese patisserie in Como. A friend, J and I headed there for a shared slice of cake and […] Read more…

Swan Valley Food and Wine Trail – Perth

I’m showing J around Perth at the moment as this is his first time on the west coast. I had the opportunity to show off some of Western Australia’s best wineries and it just so happens that the Swan Valley is only a 25 minute drive from the Perth CBD, so we decided to spend […] Read more…

Breakfast @ 1 or 2 Cafe

Taking over the old Grande’s spot in Manuka, is 1 or 2 Cafe. I was warmly greeted when I entered the cafe early on a Saturday morning. The family-run cafe was small and cosy – the front counter’s display filled with pastries and sandwiches, and the back wall loaded with fresh loaves of bread. Who’s […] Read more…

Lunch @ Nutrition Station

A new eatery focused on healthy food, Nutrition Station, has opened in Braddon.

The all day menu is quite extensive making it a little difficult to decide on what to eat! For […] Read more…

Vegetarian @ Au Lac

The last time I dined at Au Lac in Dickson was for Chinese New Year about two years ago. I can’t believe it’s been that long. Being one of the most popular vegetarian restaurants in Canberra, I was happy to go back. I noticed the restaurant has had a bit of a revamp including new […] Read more…

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…
