After seeing Dream Cuisine Patisserie at their stall at the Kingston Bus Depot Markets, I went onto their website and found out they had a little shop in Fyshwick. Some free time on a Saturday morning lead me to drive to Fyshwick to check it out. The shop is pretty much located in the middle […] Read more…

Ippudo Sydney

I don’t get to go to Sydney often (even though its less than a 3hr drive from Canberra), but when I do, I make sure I try out a different restaurant/cafe. This time, I decided to head to Ippudo for some ramen. Some friends had mentioned this was one of the best places to eat […] Read more…

$25 breakfast prefix at C Dine Bar

The breakfast prefix menu at C Dine Bar provides a 2 course menu where you can choose what you would like in each course. It also includes an amuse bouche as a starter. I think this is the only venue in Canberra to offer a breakfast prefix. Love the idea! The amuse bouche was a […] Read more…

Belluci’s Manuka

A group of friends and I dined at Belluci’s Manuka for a birthday dinner. The inside of Belluci’s Manuka is relatively new and fitted out quite nicely. Belluci’s serve nice Italian food but I’ve had so many bad experiences with the chain (there’s another Belluci’s restaurant in Phillip). I’ve found the wait time is ridiculous […] Read more…

Brunch @ Loading Zone
