PM Eat & Drink

Fresh high quality seafood, sourced direct from local suppliers where possible, meticulous attention to detail in presentation and a charcoal grill. Sounds delightful doesn't it?

OKA Malaysian and Chinese Cuisine Chee Chaa Buffet

Introducing "Chee Chaa", which is the catchy name OKA Malaysian and Chinese cuisine have coined to describe their Asian tapas + yum cha + buffet hybrid. Sounds pretty catchy to me, especially since they're only charging $22!

Little Crumbs

I had a pretty epic weekend just gone, probably gained a kilo or two around the waist but I am totally not complaining. You see, I had a whole box (12) of Little Crumbs cupcakes practically to myself...

Pepper Green Indian Cafe

When it comes to Asian food, you go where the Asians go. Pepper Green Indian Cafe was packed with wonderful dishes and one not to miss! As you can see it's a little difficult to miss the green café at night :)

The O.A.K Dinner

The Outdoor Australian Kitchen (O.A.K) is exactly what you think the name portrays - it's a real grill and chill spot and we absolutely love what they've done with the place!

Besser Brew Bar

Blink and you'll miss the swanky industrialised version of Laneway, Besser Kitchen & Brew Bar. Initially I thought the name was a little strange (try saying it 10 times quick) but now it rolls off my tongue easily, almost as easily for me to waltz in and plonk myself in the corner.

The Poolside Restaurant at DoubleTree by Hilton Darwin

The Doubletree Hilton is a little getaway hotel next to it's more well known big brothers, blink and you'll drive past it easy. We did exactly that - so look out for the massive '122' on the Esplanade or make sure you go into the enterance at the very end of the Esplanade!

Mitchell's Bar and Grill Weekend High Tea

I've been very naughty the past few weeks. If I sees it, I eats it. My excuse is that I was sick earlier this month, hence I needed to eat lots to have the strength to... eat more food and blog about...

The Foreshore Restaurant and Cafe

The family and I are regulars here since it opened, we probably go once a fortnight on average. The location is the best part - it's right along the scenic walking track that runs all along the Nightcliff foreshore, hence the name of the cafe.
