Canberra Eats Day Three

Today we went to the zoo.

A little tip for anyone wanting to visit is to purchase your tickets online as it saves you a dollar or two. It might not be much to you but it all adds up at the end of the day and you can buy a small sundae with that!

Anyway, the food at the zoo wasn’t too bad. I had a carrot cake and hot choccie to start the day off and then a sausage sizzle as a snack before lunch.

The zoo is a reasonable size so make sure you have good walking shoes on!

After the zoo we headed out to Patissez for some lunch.

The weather was scorching hot so I had to opt for something green which I never do!

The Green Goddess Bowl saved the day with fresh ingredients like green pea hummus, avocado, quinoa, sauteed spinach, broccolini, lemon, house made hazelnut dukkah, haloumi and a poached egg.

Green Goddess Bowl $21

This was really quite good. It’s my one healthy meal of the year!

Hubby went for the reuben which had shaved Wagyu corned beef, melted Swiss cheese, house made Zuni pickles and Russian dressing on toasted sourdough and served with mixed leaves.

The Reuben $21 plus $2 extra for fries

He thought it wasn’t bad but said it was a bit too ‘hammy’. What a shame Katz’s deli isn’t here to make a fortune out of people like us!

For drinks I kept my ‘green’ streak going by having an acai smoothie which had organic acai, strawberries, blueberries, coconut water, chia and raw honey.

Acai smoothie $9

This was quite nice and refreshing in the heat.

After that we headed to our Airbnb for a little nap before dinner.

For dinner we went to Burger Hero.

The burgers here are legit! I haven’t had a good stack in agesSss so this was a welcome.

I went for the cheeseburger which had 200g of hickory beef, American cheese and hero sauce.

Cheeseburger $12 plus $5.50 for waffle fries and a can of drink

That hickory beef was so good! And the flavour of that hero sauce was also really good. Those who know me know I’m a bit like Jeffrey Star and hate sauce (and like my burgers plain) so to willingly try this and like it is a rarity for me.

Hubby had the Rockin’ Rooster which had buttermilk soaked crumbed chicken, lettuce, tomato, onion, liquid cheese and chipotle sauce.

Rockin’ Rooster $15 plus $5.50 For waffle fries and a can of drink

Hubby loved this! He said the chicken was juicy and flavoursome.

I wish we had more time in Canberra, as there are so many different places to eat!
