A and I had dinner with Erin from Mouthless Mutters a few weeks ago. Erin suggested we meet at Eightysix in Braddon, which had been on my wishlist since our arrival in Canberra. Thinking back on it, I think the reason why it’s taken A and I such a long time to visit Eightysix was…

When A and I were in Perth, we were spoiled for excellent Mexican food options. Our favourites were El Compa and La Cholita and A and I would frequently head to either of these establishments for Mexican.

I spent a Friday in Sydney for work a few weeks ago and when I arrived back in Canberra after a 12 hour return trip, I was tired and craving comfort food. My idea of ‘comfort food’ changes regularly – it could be ice-cream on one day and a big bowl of soup the other….

Indian Feast @ Jewel of India, Manuka, ACT

Array of curries

For some unknown reason, A and I hardly frequent Indian restaurants in Canberra however when we were in Perth, we’d regularly visit one of our many favourites.
