When researching places to eat in a different city or country I can spend hours on Urbanspoon and reading blog reviews. For our quick weekend to Canberra, I took a different approach. I asked the Canberra folk on Twitter for their recommendations.
A lot of you would know that J travels a fair bit for work. When he does, we occasionally make the most of it and I join him for a weekend away.
When looking for a venue for our regular catch up I suggested Gasometer to KB1 and KB2.
Working all day digging ditches works up an appetite.
I drive past the bright pink awning of Persian Flavours on my way to and from work everyday, but have never been that interested in dining there.
J, being a wise man, decided to book us a night away in the midst our bathroom renovation. We were tired of the dust and dirt, and a tad over having tradies in our house (especially on weekends).
Decent restaurants are a little thin on the ground in the outer Eastern ‘burbs, so I was very interested when one of my tennis team mates said The Brewhouse in Ringwood East does good food.
A night in the city to celebrate J’s birthday meant an opportunity to check out another dumpling establishment.
Breakfast round up part three sticks to the Eastern suburbs, and I try to mix things up with some different dishes.
Spring sprung early this year in Melbourne, with slightly warmer and longer days arriving a good week before the official start date of September 1.
I was pretty excited to be finally dining at what I consider to be an institution, Grossi Florentino. The upstairs, fine dining arm of the Guy Grossi empire.
