Italian @ Da Nunzio

I’ve been wanting to check out the other restaurants out at Gungahlin for while now and finally managed to try out Da Nunzio Caffe Bar Ristorante. The menu on their website looks good with a range of pasta dishes, seafood and steaks. I managed to book the last table for 2 on Friday night. They […] Read more…

Brunch @ C Dine Bar

I headed back to C Dine Bar with some friends on a sunny Spring morning. I’d already tried out their $25 breakfast prefix menu a few weeks ago, but was keen to try it again. As it was such a beautiful day, we sat outside. The wooden benches were long and made comfortable with cushion […] 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…

Discovering cronuts

Ricardo’s facebook page has been tantalisingly teasing me these last few weeks with the latest items on their menu. Introducing the cronut. What is a cronut?

Breaking news – Croissant D’or opening up in Woden

Brunch @ 4th Seed

4th Seed is a great new-ish cafe in the Queanbeyan CBD serving breakfast and lunch. I’d read a review that the French Toast was pretty good but was only available on weekends. So on a free Saturday morning, I headed over. They have a display cabinet of yummy treats like macarons, tarts, muffins, cakes and […] Read more…

Sage – ‘Taste and Test’ 5-course tasting menu

I received a text message from Sage Dining introducing the ‘Taste and Test’ 5-course tasting menu ($60) available for diners to provide feedback on their new menu. This is a heavily discounted deal running Tuesday to Thursday nights until September 26. Great opportunity to test out their new concepts. Sage is one of my favourite […] Read more…

Dickson Dumpling House – take 2

So I decided to try out more items on the menu at the Dickson Dumpling House after having a dinner banquet here with work colleagues. I made a reservation for Saturday night and we showed up on time. When I told the waitress of my booking, she yelled out something in Chinese to a fellow […] Read more…

Ricardo’s cakes

I had to write a blog about Ricardo‘s Cafe. I visited this place about a year ago after hearing of Ricardo’s from several people for its cakes and pastries but since it’s located in Jamison, and therefore quite far from me, I’d just never had a reason to drive by and visit. I had a […] Read more…
