When people think of Canberra they probably think of a place that’s boring and slow but its food scene is far from that.
We went on a little family trip for four days and wished we had more time to explore more eateries.
Day one we got to eating at around 5.30pm so visited a joint called Mookie (most of the other places I wanted to visit closed at 4pm!!!).
Hubby had the pork belly burger which had pork belly, Asian slaw, kewpie (Japanese mayo) and pork crackling in it and he absolutely loved it!
As a side he had the gem-go-bell which are potato gems topped with cheese sauce, jalapenos and chives which was quite tasty.
I had the Mookie wings which are spicy crumbed buffalo wings with your choice of Texas bbq sauce or devil chilli. I opted for the bbq sauce because I’m already a wimp when it comes to chilli and the spice factor on this one was already high on my radar!
I also had a small side of French fries with this.
For dessert (because who doesn’t eat dessert?!) we had concretes which are frozen custards.
These are the best thing ever! I had the geisha which was a vanilla flavoured custard with cheesecake, pink rose petals, strawberries, watermelon and crushed pistachios. Very reminiscent of Black Star Pastry’s watermelon cake.
Hubby had the apple pie which was also a vanilla flavoured frozen custard with cinnamon donut, crushed apples, corn flakes and cinnamon.
I have to say that these two desserts really blew my mind in terms of taste. They were super refreshing and just had the perfect flavour combos.
I know where I’ll be going for a frozen treat next time we come back!
Oh and for all you mummies out there, it’s also baby friendly.
