Pretty Average Dinner #10 – Roast Duck in 2 hours!

Last November I decided to make ‘Peking Duck’ which took me like 2 days!  I had to marinade it over night, pumped some air to separate the skin, then coat it with some sweet boiling water and then let it dried for 5 hours.   Turned out great but boy it took me forever to…

French Martini – Southbank

Girls night out on a Tuesday at French Martini. A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to join a few girl friends for dinner at French Martini.   They heard about the restaurant’s 50% off special for the month of February so decided to organise a dinner gathering.  I feel quite lucky to have…

Marinara Cafe & Restaurant

A nice Italian cafe and restaurant in Hawthorne, Brisbane.   I hardly eat on this side of town, but a friend decided to give this place a go since she heard it was a pretty good Italian restaurant from another friend.     Indeed, this place was good. We ordered some Kilpatrick oysters, a bruschetta pizza and…

Lot 3 Wanaka

Lot 3, a warm and cosy cafe store in Wanaka, New Zealand.  The cafe store was located a bit out from the main block of shops from memory.  The appearance outside of the cafe store was very simple and it looked quite small.  However, on the inside, the high ceiling made it looked very big…

Thai Rose

Thai Rose is one of my favourite Thai restaurants for lunch in Brisbane.  I used to go here at least once a week when I worked at the Gabba (Woollongabba) years ago.  I started going back here when I ended up working in the same building again at the start of the year. The lunch deal…

Pineapple Express

For those who are fit and health conscious, Pineapple Express is the perfect place for you. This cafe is situated on Portside Hamilton on the block across from Ginga Sushi Restaurant. We’ve been here a few times for coffee and breakfast.  I think it’s quite nice, but to me I think the meals and drinks are quite easy…

Reef Seafood and Sushi

Seafood and sushi joint at Gasworks was okay; pretty average.   I’ve been here a several times for sushi and a couple of times to try their seafood platters.  The place itself is pretty nice, however I think the dishes are just a little bit more expensive compared to other places in the Brisbane city…

PappaRich in Brisbane

I’m back!  I was talking to a couple of people today about my neglected food blog so I decided to do a post.  Yes, I still take photos of food.  Yes, I have a huge collection of food photos!  It has been a busy year for me with work, bridesmaid’s duties, attending bridal showers, hen’s nights…

Beartown Coffee House

Beartown Coffee House; a new cafe joint in Woolloongabba.  This place has only been opened since last week and I’ve been meaning to have breakfast here since last Friday.   So, I decided to ask a friend out for breakfast here yesterday since we both work around the area. I ordered the daily special; frittata with bacon,…

Bishamon

Bishamon is another Japanese restaurant in Brisbane. I went with a friend here for dinner probably just after my Japan trip.  I think I was going through some holiday withdrawals and really wanted Japanese food.  However,  I think I would consider Bishamon as a “modern Japanese restaurant” as opposed to like Hosokawa, Sono or Kabuki where they…

Miel Container – Best Burgers in Brisbane CBD

Probably the best burgers in Brisbane CBD! IMO. If you work in Brisbane CBD and haven’t been to Miel; you’re missing out! The shipping container burger joint have been opened for awhile now and yet there are still people that haven’t heard about it. (Well, random people I talk to while I buy make-up and…

Burch and Purchese Sweet Studio

The Burch and Purchese Sweet Studio adventure on Chapel Street, Melbourne. A few weeks ago, my friend and I decided to head to Melbourne for a short girls weekend trip. We’ve been saying it for like the past 2 years that we should really go on a trip somewhere together to explore food. Yes, that…
