What I love about this place is the handmade thick flat white hand-pulled noodles. There’s actually so much to choose from the menu – […] Read more…

Gelato and Sorbet @ Spilt Milk Bar (Dickson)

Note: I was invited to visit Spilt Milk Bar in Dickson, however all opinions are my own. Spilt Milk Bar is originally from Orange, NSW, and opened its second store in Dickson, Canberra, back in November 2020.

There were two styles served with the mud crab – an XO sauce on vermicelli noodles, or ginger and […] Read more…
