Delicious Japanese food at Raku

Raku Japanese Restaurant

Japanese food is one of my favourite cuisines but it wasn’t until I visited Japan in 2016 that I knew just how good Japanese food can be. It’s hard to find Japanese food as good as the food I ate in Japan…. My first memory of eating Japanese food is when my mum would cook tempura for my sisters and I when we were kids. If it was one thing we didn’t go without when we were growing up, it was amazing food. My mum is an incredible cook! I still remember the crunchy coating on the outside and the delicious and fresh vegetables or fish on the inside. Mum’s combination of onion rings and grated carrots in a tempura batter was one of my favourites! Continue reading Delicious Japanese food at Raku

Must try burgers in Canberra

Who doesn’t love a good burger?! There’s something about deliciously tasty (and sometimes indulgent) fillings sandwiched between a soft bread roll that has sent Canberra and the world a little burger mad. I’m guilty of eating a few burgers out each month and we also make a killer burger at home (I’ll share the recipe with you soon). You can pack so much flavour in a burger and it’s so satisfying holding a juicy burger in your hands and devouring every last mouthful. We’ve put together a list of burgers and burger joints that we think you should check out in Canberra. Some places are dedicated burger joints and others have one or more ‘must try’ burgers on their menu! WARNING: Drool-worthy images ahead. Continue reading Must try burgers in Canberra
