Filipino Pop-Up Dinner @Lolo and Lola

Yesterday I had to opportunity to dine at Lolo and Lola for their 6th Filipino pop-up dinner. Seats to the pop-up dinners are usually all booked out weeks and even months before. But I was lucky enough to grab a seat because there was a cancellation, two days prior to the dinner. So shall we…

Chinese New Year @ XO

In many Asian communities around the world, one of the most important event celebrated would have to be Chinese New Year (or Lunar New Year). Food is one of the important aspects when celebrating Chinese New Year and this year I had the opportunity to try the Chinese New Year menu at XO with a…

Lunch at Paleo Cafe Canberra.

Last month I was lucky enough to win a $100 gift card from Eat Canberra, so I treated my family to brunch at Paleo Cafe Canberra. We arrived around 11:20, which I reckon had to be the worst time because the breakfast service ends in less than 10 minutes so we had to wait until…

Orient Kitchen – Canberra’s Newest Chinese Barbecue.

Orient Kitchen opened their doors just before the end of 2015, increasing the number of Chinese barbecue stores in Canberra to eight (please correct me if I’m wrong). I finally got the chance to have lunch at Orient Kitchen, six months later…

Lunch session at Kinn Thai.

Since opening in Canberra last year, I have been to Kinn Thai numerous times, mostly for lunch. Besides Morks, Kinn Thai would have to be my other favourite Thai restaurant in Canberra.

MCC: The District, Crace.

It turns out it was my turn to choose where to have our MCC, I took a risk venturing out of the CBD and decided to go to Crace, a fairly new neighbourhood. Once again we plagued by the same problem as last time, we didn’t do enough research. We originally planned to visit The…

MCC: Dumplings @ Yat Bun Tong

I was actually excited for our next MCC (Monthly Cousin Catchup) because we were planning on going to the newly opened Japanese restaurant on Lonsdales Street, Chaki Chaki. Unfortunately, they are closed on Sunday’s and Monday’s and it was a Monday when MCC happened. We were sad and disappointed. Because we wanted Japanese food and…

Lunch @ MY’s Restaurant, Weston

A while back, I went to MY’s Restaurant for lunch with the family. It has been nearly 5 years since the last time I went to MY’s Restaurant, maybe even longer since it was at their old premise.

Monthly Cousin Catchup – Grease Monkey

After our previous catch up at Doubleshot, it was my turn to choose where we were going to catch up next. I went to Instagram to find some inspiration on where we could go, after looking at several photos, I decided on Grease Monkey because of a photo on their fried chicken…

Morks, not your everyday Thai.

It has been over two years since Morks opened their doors at Kingston Foreshore. Throughout these two years, I’ve been there numerous times and everytime it has been very satisfying. If you think the Thai you had last week was the very best in Canberra, I am so sorry, but you’ll need to get yourself…

Monthly cousin catch up @ Doubleshot

Recently I had been catching up with two of my favourite cousins on a monthly basis. In the past, I would usually see them once a year on Chinese New Year. I say ‘favourite’ because we share similar interests. So at these ‘catch ups’ we talk about anything, family gossips included; food is always included….

New Eatery in Civic, Soi Noodle Bar

This morning, I was faced with the worst decision ever…where to eat?? For me I would just go to grab some pho or a bibimbap at my usual go-to restaurants in Civic. But today it was different. Mum somehow got first hand information from her friend, that there was a new eatery opened in Civic….
