Farmers Daughter – fail

20130323-181837.jpg

Farmers Daughter (sic) is the Britta of Canberra cafes

A long wait and then the most pathetic limp tasteless zucchini and corn fritters ever

Oh and by the way the were cold (they were replaced promptly though)

Food

With the pathetic fritters we also ordered a breakfast burger, that while passable could have had more bacon for the price tag

Drinks

coffee was passable

Ambience

Meh, ok hipsterish

Service

Slow, but the replacement hot fritters were served quickly

Price

Overpriced! $42 for two coffees and two mains, with us leaving hungry

Overall

Never again.

indocafe laksa

20120516-203232.jpg

food
A strong contender for best laksa in Canberra, this little hole in the wall dishes up an amazing array of authentic Indonesian classics to the lunchtime hoards.

drinks
A well stocked fridge with all variants of coke and a classic collection of other soft drinks (passiona ftw!).

ambience

Outside under the trees or back at my desk.

service

This place always has a line but it moves fast.

price

$10 laksa or $10 lunch box (curry and rice, can of soft drink and an entree), entrees (samosa, spring roll, corn fritter) are $1.

overall

Working my way through the menu, heck I might even become a regular.

where

Ground Floor Waldorf Apartments London Circuit Canberra

when

M-F lunch only, dinner by appointment, delivery available

Thirst

20120213-160248.jpg

New years resolution – try every restaurant in The Canberra Times Top 20 -2011 list

Up first is Thirst – a Thai wine bar (interesting eh?)

Food

Good range of Thai food. Standouts are the crispy fish salad (warning hot!), pork belly noodles (above) and trout dumpling green curry. House made gelato was a great finish.

Drinks

Cocktail jugs yay! But won’t make them as single drinks boo!

Ambience

Meh, ok

Service

Average (Canberra standard service – slow but not slow enough to complain about)

Price

2for1 Monday and Tuesday winner! Mains about $24

Overall

Have already been twice and will go again especially if it’s 2for1
