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…

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

Loading Zone in Civic recently opened its doors for Saturday brunch. And of course, I wanted to try it out 😛 I ordered the Baked Eggs with tomato sugo, fennel, chick peas and sausage. This was nice, warm and hearty. I felt like I was at nonna’s house having a home-made breakfast. The eggs were […] Read more…

Lunch @ Alchemy Bar & Restaurant

I checked out Alchemy Bar & Restaurant in Manuka with a fellow foodie during the first few weeks of its opening. There are quite a few nice things on the menu so I was excited to try it out. The first thing you notice upon entering the restaurant is all the space. There aren’t that […] Read more…

Cakes @ Flute Bakery

This post is an amalgamation of the times I’ve visited the Flute Bakery and their tasty treats. I’d heard of Flute Bakery from several people, but as they’re opening times are Monday to Friday 9am-3pm, it’s almost impossible to visit. Earlier this year, on a day off, I decided to check this place out for […] Read more…

Dinner @ Me & Mrs Jones

I organised a group dinner at Me & Mrs Jones in Kingston with some friends. When I rang up to make a booking, they informed me that there were only spare tables in the enclosed heated outdoor area. It was a cold Canberra’s Winter’s night but the staff member assured me it would be warm […] Read more…

Bean & Grain bagel

A friend suggested I check out Bean and Grain for their awesome bagels. I must admit, I’m not a huge fan of bagels – they’re usually dry and dense. Bean and Grain bake their bagels and other breads fresh every day. Located at the Fyshwick fresh food markets, you need to get in early-ish (before […] Read more…

Yumcha @ China Plate at Kingston

When I found out the new-ish China Plate restaurant in Kingston was serving yumcha on weekends, I put it on my foodie bucket list to try out. There are two yumcha banquets available – standard and premium. We went with the premium banquet. Each person receives one of each yumcha dish. At $40 per person, […] Read more…

Lunch @ Shorty’s Bar and Restaurant

Replacing Milk & Honey in civic is Shorty‘s – restaurant and bar. They offer bar food, finger food, mains, desserts and drinks. The fit out inside is pretty funky. They’ve kept the two levels and it now has a lounge/bar feel to it with limited outdoor dining. I’ve been here on 2 separate occasions so […] Read more…

Brazilian BBQ @ The Copa

I was so excited to try out Canberra’s first Brazilian churrasco restaurant – the Copa. I’d read that the massive churrasco (bbq/oven pit) that you see as you walk in was imported straight from Brazil. I organised a group booking for a Thursday night – the second night of it opening. It was also a […] Read more…
