New owners have taken over the lease at the upstairs Chinese restaurant at the Italian Club in Forrest. It seems that the previous owners didn’t come back after Christmas? The new people have decided that a yum cha set up was going to be the most appropriate, considering the clientele is mostly public servants. And…… Continue reading Dim Sim Dumplings House, yum cha @Italian Club Forrest – Review

Francisco’s Cantina, Manuka – Review

I work in Forrest so I’m spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out for lunch. My team and I decided to check out Francisco’s Mexican Cantina. It’s in the middle of an arcade, not so much a restaurant but an area, with a bar in the middle and the kitchen in the Cantina…… Continue reading Francisco’s Cantina, Manuka – Review

Cafe Borellas, Albury – Review

I had a weekend in Albury recently, as I have family there. We decided to head to Peard’s Nursery where there is a cafe attached, Cafe Borellas. In the 30 odd years I’ve been going to Albury, I’ve never been to this cafe. I’ve been to Thurgoona Golf Club for dinner a million times, never…… Continue reading Cafe Borellas, Albury – Review

Henry’s @ Canberra Southern Cross Club, Woden – Review

We had dinner out tonight for my father in law’s birthday. We frequent Henry’s at the Canberra Southern Cross Club in Woden often, but I’ve never reviewed it before. It feels like home sometimes, as birthdays, special dinners and just dinner out on the spur of the moment are held at Henry’s.

A Salted Caramel Journey – Ricardo’s Cafe, Jamison – Review

I had experienced the heavenly joy of a Ricardo’s Cafe salted caramel cronut on one occasion at work, and even though I’m not a sweet gal, I was so enthralled by the creation. It’s probably the sweet n savoury combination of caramel and salt that tickled my tastebuds. I was determined to introduce Tweenie to…… Continue reading A Salted Caramel Journey – Ricardo’s Cafe, Jamison – Review
