International style with a local feel at Pulp Kitchen

06/10/2015 by OutInCanberra

Among the quiet, red-tiled rooves of Canberra’s Northside, sits a bold and adventurous restaurant with huge floor-to-ceiling windows. However, while Pulp Kitchen’s glass façade provides an excellent view into suburban Ainslie, it’s much more exciting to focus on the highlights of the French bistro-inspired menu.


Dog Friendly Cafés in Canberra

30/09/2015 by Brian Tam

You wake up on Saturday morning, open the curtains to find a beautiful spring day outside, and find yourself having the same old debate in your head: should I head out somewhere for a nice leisurely brunch, or take the dog for a walk so I can carry its sh!t around for an hour? Well, if the girl on the Old El Paso ads has taught me anything (other than not to eat Old El Paso), it’s to solve difficult problems by sitting on the fence and adopting the mantra of "Why not both?"

It seems that we’ve come a long way in terms of appreciating what makes a good pizza, and more and more Canberrans are fast become pizza connoisseurs. Our hospitality scene is certainly taking note, with plenty of places now offering handmade, woodfired pizzas with great bases and restrained amounts of traditional toppings (less is more, right?). Here’s our ‘Top 10’ list of places to grab an authentic, fight-you-for-the-last-slice, pizza! Briscola Pizzeria | Civic

Checking out Milk Crate - Canberra's newest café

23/09/2015 by Brian Tam

Despite being open for less than a month, Milk Crate in Civic is already making its mark on our lively café scene. Its vibrant, colourful design has brought some much-needed life to the courtyard in front of Pilgrim House, and it’s fast becoming popular with Canberrans with its unique, simple concept.


Great Vego Burgers in Canberra

15/09/2015 by Kate Walker

If you live in Canberra and burgers are a regular aspect of your life, you will have heard of (and more than likely will have frequented) the burger bosses – Brodburger, Grill’d and The London Burgers and Beers. They offer a ridiculous variety of meaty choices and as you would expect, in this day and age, a pretty yum line up of vegetarian options for the non-meat eaters too.


Bagels are the next big thing…here’s where to get them.

08/09/2015 by Sarah Pritchard

My first bagel was from Costco when it opened in Canberra a couple of years ago and I had no idea what to put on it. The dough was denser than bread… like a savoury donut. Toasting a bagel takes it to greater heights than I had thought bread products could reach. Once toasted though, the problem remained: What to put on it? Well, there are a few places with some great ideas.

Since opening late last year, Fox and Bow in Farrer has become one of the Southside’s most popular cafes. With a great family feel and a sense of humour that runs through the venue’s fitout and menu, Fox and Bow has become something of a mecca for Canberra foodies thanks to owner and chef Alex Piris’ fresh and fun flavours.


The Best (Worst) Takeaway Joints

03/09/2015 by Sarah Pritchard

Every local shop has a little takeaway place to turn to when you want something quickly (or late at night, when you don’t mind not knowing what’s in it!) It’s a place with greasy hamburgers, fish and chips or chunky pizza with so much cheese it forms a blanket over the top. Some of them still number in my favourite places to eat, so here are the best of the bad takeaway foods.
