Five months on...
Written months apart, my last three posts share a common theme... trees! Coincidentally (or not), City of Trees is a Centenary of Canberra project. There is no denying trees form an important part of Canberra's landscape.
|At the National Arboretum (second visit)|
While Canberra continues to grow on me, it's no surprise that my favourite places remind me of Melbourne. I remember laughing at an article describing how Canberra's first official laneway restaurant would 'kick-start Canberra's laneway dining revolution'. Laneway dining is nothing new in Melbourne!
But I take it all back now... Loading Zone is my new favourite place to dine in Canberra. I went for the first time for lunch yesterday and again today! The food is simple but brilliant, the music great and the service excellent.
|Pappardelle with portobello mushrooms, mascarpone & hazelnuts|
This dish was so good... I was torn between eating it all at once and savouring every mouthful! The flavours were perfect - the earthiness of the mushrooms, fresh parsley... Loved it! Now, to share or to keep secret?
