High tea @ Cafe Societea

I read about this new place that served high tea in an article on Hercanberra. There is such a ‘princess’ feeling when going to high tea. Something so special about sharing food and gossip with close girlfriends. The article stated you’d have to book about 2 months in advance to get a table. I got […] Read more…

Lunch @ Loading Zone

I’d read that Loading Zone was to be Canberra’s first lane way dining café. It is located on Odgers Lane, a little alleyway in the Melbourne Building. The kitchen part is in quite a tiny space in the wall. There is limited seating available – a few stools inside with a small table lining the wall, […] Read more…

Lunch @ Flint in the Vines

I decided to head out of Canberra to Murrumbateman for lunch on a nice Summer’s day. Flint in the Vines has always been on my food bucket list and it was perfect weather for a nice drive out. The restaurant is set in the Shaw Vineyards and has lovely views if you can get a […] Read more…

Dinner @ La Scala

La Scala is an Italian restaurant in civic that I find to be a bit hit and miss with their dishes. When you first walk in, it doesn’t look very big until you walk to the back and see another back room full of tables and another room sectioned off with a heavy curtain that […] Read more…

Early bird dinner @ Peppered Prawn

The Peppered Prawn in Woden offers a $35 early bird dinner. This includes 2 courses – an entrée and main, or main and dessert. (I’ve noticed they’ve changed this to just entrée and main now.) Being a massive dessert fan, I went with the main and dessert combo. I’d already picked out what I wanted […] Read more…

Lunch @ Peppered Prawn

The Peppered Prawn in Woden is a short walk from my work. Located on the ground floor of the Sky Plaza, the restaurant specialises in seafood. The menu looked pretty enticing so I suggested lunch here with a work colleague. There are tables outside although the view and noise is not the best. You’re basically […] Read more…

Dinner @ Quay Restaurant Sydney

After watching Masterchef, I put Peter Gilmore’s Quay restaurant in Sydney on my foodie bucket list. Going on to their website, I found out group bookings needed to be made at least 6 months in advance! So I decided to organise (very early) my next birthday dinner with some friends.  Fast-forward 6 months and it […] Read more…

Gelato @ N2 Extreme Gelato Sydney

During a weekend in Sydney, I headed to N2 Extreme Gelato to try their gelato made right in front of you with liquid nitrogen. The store had a laboratory feel to it with glass beakers filled with ingredients displayed everywhere. The flavours available are written up on the blackboard. Lots of weird and interesting flavours. […] Read more…

Ice cream cake @ Gelato Messina Darlinghurst

I read about Gelato Messina for the first time on Urbanspoon as one of the best ranked restaurants/cafes in Sydney. To my delighted surprise, it is an ice cream shop specialising in awesome looking miniature ice cream cakes. I am really grateful to my partner (a non-foodie) who puts up with my innate cravings and […] Read more…
