CANBERRA - Where to Go ?

My 3rd trip to Canberra, discovered new eating places thanks to friends recommendation.

According to my source, Canberra just recently built this shopping centre called Canberra Centre. The centre is kinda the IT place to hangout during the weekend where people are quite dressed up (I was wearing my CROCS ... LOL).

All the nice places to go for dining are all located within the Canberra Centre (Bunda Street).

Few places that that you can go within the city centre:
Cafe with history dated back in 1960's, quite cute
Lounge/ Bar - they are famous for their pizookie (pizza cookie)Nice atmosphere for breakkie, I would say food is average, presentation & service are good
  • Sammy's Kitchen
Mad chinese restaurant, booking is a must, really nice, fast & great service
Definitely for chocolate lovers, I didn't try their dessert, only went to the shop, the shop is really nice, great for gossip/ coffee session.

Canberra City Centre (Bunda Street) - all the nice places are located within the street

Gu's Cafe (outdoor & indoor seatings)

CREAM cafe
CREAM cafe - big breakfast

CREAM cafe - breakfast menu - Waffles with berries compote
Was OK - the compote was too runny on that day

SAMMY's kitchen - asparagus with garlic & oyster sauce
The asparagus was so fresh, perfectly cooked & not overcooked !!
SAMMY's kitchen - Belachan (shrimp paster) beans

SAMMY's kitchen - ShangTung chicken (vinegar sauce??)

SAMMY's kitchen - Duck Pancake (duck, pine nut, celery)
The fillings resemble San Choy Bow
