First Edition Canberra

We recently dined at First Edition and ordered the American BBQ Beef Ribs with Sweet Potato Waffle Fries. Perfectly crunchy outside and fluffy inside, we honestly couldn’t decide whether the ribs or the fries were the best part of the dish!

Grease Monkey

Everyone knows Greasy’s for their awesome burgers, but their Cheesy Loaded Fries alone are worth the trip to Braddon. Think thick cut chips absolutely smothered in liquid cheese, bacon, jalapenos, pickles, and Greasy’s famous sauce.
