The Boat House by the lake Thanks @boatpodchef

It’s a Friday night in January and the Boat House by the lake is the perfect place for dinner as the sun sets with a view over Lake Burly Griffin. Bron and I have a reservation for 7.30.

As we arrive the the breeze picks up outside and the sun is streaming through the large windows that open onto a spectacular view of Lake Burly Griffin. The sun is at about a 20° angle and the light is harsh but we know the light of the setting sun will be quite beautiful as the evening approaches. We’ve been seated at a large table next to the rear wall of the dining room. It’s a good spot, we can see the comings and goings in and out of the dining room.

We are advised that the menu is in transition, as the restaurant is changing its offerings to customers to reflect the change in seasons. The left column represents the degustation option and the right column the à la carte choices.

After we were seated we were served an amuse-bouche which included a delightful piece of crispy chili chicken skin, a pâté and foie gras lollipop, some olive shortbread, tomato and parmesan marshmallow and a seafood churros with an olive and garlic smear.

The first course is a chef’s choice and tonight it was a dish made with king fish, onion and coriander. It was a delicious starter.

While we were enjoying the amuse-bouche and starter we had some delicious white sourdough bread with a really nice soft and smooth fennel butter. 

The waiter had started to clear the bread plate and noticed my sad face and arranged to bring out more bread. It was a nice touch. I hate to see butter go to waste. 


 

For an entrée Bron chose the duck ham and I went with the pork belly.

Bron really enjoyed the duck ham which was smoked and had a delicate flavour. The pork belly had been cooking for 14 hours and cut like a hot knife through butter. It was amazing.


 

For main courses Bron chose the Veal loin and I went with the Grilled beef flank.

Bron described the arrangement around the veal as a wreath which seemed to be very fitting. Bron said the veal and the vegetable wreath were very good. I was very happy with the beef, the meat and fruit went so well together. 


 

We were surprised when our waiter came out with a pre-dessert dessert. He said the mango mousse was a new dish and the chef would appreciate feedback. I’m sorry the photograph doesn’t do this dessert justice. The mousse is smooth and delicate with the mango flavour being subtle not strong. The sorbet was refreshing but not as refreshing as the surprise packet of finger lime cells on the mousse. Like balls of excitement they popped in my mouth.

Bron noted how delicious the white balsamic was and the crunch of the puffed white rice.


 

For our main dessert we both asked for the pavlova.

The basil soup was a really interesting and pleasant flavour. Basil seems to go so well with sweet things. The fruits were nice and the consistency of the pavlova was really good. The cream was smooth and not to sweet and the passionfruit not too tart.


 

It’s no surprise that the Boat House by the lake is one of the best restaurants in Canberra. We had a terrific evening. The food was of the highest quality and the service was impeccable. It’s hard not to be impressed when you walk in and are seated at a strong sturdy table big enough for four but dedicated for two with a linen tablecloth and matching serviettes.

 

We both highly recommend the Boat House by the lake to anyone wanting a great dinner in Canberra with amazing views and superb service.

My first @menulog experience #menulog

Tonight I tried menulog for the first time. I recall Shari from Good Food Week writing a review about menulog in August 2014 and I’ve been meaning to try the service ever since. I’d recently received an e-mail from menulog about a prize for a MacBook Air so I thought I should give it a go. My love of Mac computers put me over the line 

It’s pretty easy to get into menulog. Just enter the postcode you’re wanting the food from or delivered to and a list of available restaurants is displayed. I heard from a friend that when she travels for work if she doesn’t want to go out she looks up the menulog app and orders straight to her hotel room. You can choose from delivery or pick up. When I looked up the delivery options none of them struck me as food I wanted tonight. I looked at the pick up list and Malaysian Chapter caught my eye immediately. We’d been to eat at Malaysian Chapter in September 2014 and I really enjoyed the experience. 

The ordering system is really easy. Click to select exactly what you want and everything is calculated in real time as you go. As a first time user I also received a 15% discount which was nice. 

I chose pappadums, beef rendang, coconut rice and roti. The total was $20.78 after the discount and I asked for the food to be ready at 6 pm. I should mention I was able to do the ordering while on a break at work and everything was dead easy. I paid by PayPal which made life easier. If you don’t have a PayPal account you can pay with nearly all available credit cards.

As I started driving home I received a text message confirming my order.

When I arrived at Malaysian Chapter my meal was ready and I was out of the door in a jiffy. 

I could have eaten the food straight from the takeaway containers but I’m a sophisticated food blogger

So how was it? Well the menulog service worked like a charm. No complaints there. The food? The food was good. Takeaway is never as good as the full restaurant experience and my only yearning was for more sauce with the rendang so there could be more to soak into the yummy coconut rice. I think the roti would have tasted better in the restaurant but it was still nice. 

Will I use menulog again? Yes I will. Will I eat at Malaysian Chapter again? Yes I will.

Tell me dear reader, have you used menulog? What was your experience?

The Artisan in Narrabundah

On Thursday night Miss19 and I went to dinner at The Artisan in Narrabundah.

Miss19 is in Canberra visiting friends. It was fantastic seeing her and getting an opportunity to enjoy a nice evening with her over a meal.

 
The Artisan on Urbanspoon
 

Miss19 had eaten a big lunch and she was happy with an entrée as a main while I went for an entrée, main and a side (we shared the side). 

The menu has a good diverse selection of dishes including some Australian fauna. It took us a while to choose what we wanted to eat. 

While we were contemplating the menu we were served an amuse-bouche of apple and goat cheese.

I asked for the Buckwheat crêpe with confit duck leg, sugar snaps, watercress, grapes and saba while Miss19 went for the Twice cooked potato and sorrel soufflé with champagne vinegar compressed pumpkin salad but as a main.

I chose the Angus beef for a main.

For dessert we chose the tasting plate. I’m sorry the pavé is so out of focus.

We enjoyed our meal. 

From my perspective the buckwheat crêpe was okay. It would have been nice to have it like a Chinese style duck pancake but the confit duck was really nice. The beef was very nicely cooked and very tender. 

The desserts were very interesting. Our favourite was the mousse which was quite salty. The saltiness contrasted nicely the sweetness of the chocolate. The pavé was good with a nice orange flavour. The violet crème brûlée was really interesting. The rose rice crisps tasted more like a rose water prawn cracker but in a really good way.

The only downside was that while we enjoyed sitting at a table in the front next to an open window at 8 pm a swarm of mosquitoes invaded and I needed antihistamines to get to sleep. 

Despite the mosquitoes, I’d happily eat at The Artisan again and again. The food is great and the service very friendly. I’m happy to recommend The Artisan to anyone living in or visiting Canberra.

Chicken Schnitzel at The Woden Tradies

A couple of work mates and I went to The Woden Tradies today for chicken schnitzel.

The Tradies at Woden isn’t far from work so it was a pleasant walk in a relatively warm and mildly humid day in Canberra. As a member I was eligible for a discount and I could share that discount with my mates. Ordinarily a standard schnitty costs $18 and a legendary schnitty costs $20. Today a schnitty with any sauce, mash or chips and salad or vegetables cost all of $12.

One of my mates was explaining how one of his daughters has a friend who has hollandaise sauce with her schnitty and she will order two serves of hollandaise sauce so she can coat everything including chips (fries for north American readers and French fries I assume for readers from France ) with it. When I suggested I’d have hollandaise sauce there was laughter and comments about I wouldn’t…


 

Yes, I did 

The Woden Tradies Chicken schnitzel with mashed potato and vegetables plus hollandaise sauce all for $12 Apple iPhone 6 Plus with iPhone 6 Plus back camera 4.15mm f/2.2 at 4mm and f/2.2, 1/210sec, ISO 32

The Chicken Schnitzel at The Woden Tradies is pretty good. It’s a generous portion. The crumb coating is complete and not too thick. The mashed potato I think was powdered potato, its consistency was that of thick clag or perkins paste. The vegetables were on the over cooked side. I’m guessing the Hollandaise sauce wasn’t made in the kitchen. That said, it was tasty and satisfying and a great lunch when enjoying laughs and stories with work mates. 


I was pretty full after lunch so I had a salad for tea tonight

Meatless Monday | It would have been better with #bacon

Will Meatless Monday be a thing for me?

Last Monday I wrote about my last Salmon Monday and speculated on what I would do on Mondays in 2015. I did mention Meatless Monday but dismissed it quickly. I also received some great suggestions

I’m going to mix things up on Mondays I think. Some will be Meatless Monday, some will be Mad Monday, some may be Monster Meaty Monday, and there may be Mushroom Monday. 

Tonight on the first Monday for 2015 I went for Meatless Monday. I cheated by using some Coles kale coleslaw and added some mango, a nectarine and an avocado. I also added in some sesame seeds and dessicated coconut.

Lonsdale Street Roasters

At this time of year a lot of restaurants in Canberra close for the Christmas New Year (CNY) break. Bron and I thought we’d go to The Cupping Room for breakfast but at 8 am the doors were closed and the chairs stacked on the tables. We went around to Lonsdale Street to look around. Eighty-six and Elk and Pea were closed (we’ll go back later in the year). Lonsdale Street Roasters were open so we walked in. LSR has space in front on the street, inside and out the back. We chose out the back because it was shaded  and because the roasting shed was close by. It looks like the shed had its own lot next to LSR itself. Bron reckons the smell was fantastic. I couldn’t smell it myself. The shaded back was also good because the cool shade provided some relief as the day approached it forecast 34 °C (93.2 °F). 

We ordered food, took a number and found a table. I asked for the muesli and Bron asked for quinoa with avocado and tomato. After we sat down I was told there was no muesli so I asked for smoked salmon, cream cheese and bagel. 

The coffee is good at LSR and the food is too.

Bron said her meal was very good. I’d not tried quinoa before and had a couple of mouthfuls. It was an interesting taste.

The bagels are made in house at LSR and was very good. The salmon was flaky and light. I’d happily eat it again. 

We’ll be back to Lonsdale Street Roasters. I’d recommend it to anyone in need of good coffee and a good meal.

 

Bicicletta Restaurant Review

It’s Friday night in the first week of 2015 and Bron and I had plans to dine at Bicicletta Restaurant in New Acton.

Bicicletta Restaurant is in the new Peppers Gallery Hotel where the old Diamante Hotel used to be. When we arrived we notice there was a lot of outdoor seating and when we went inside we also noticed how still and warm the air was. Like most everyone else we elected to dine outside and enjoy the warmth and vegetation. It was quite good for people watching outside and we were surrounded by a mix of locals and tourists who may have been in town for Summernats

The menu was a good combination of Italian fare including pasta and pizza. We decided to share the fritto di calamari (fried baby squid with zucchini strips and spicy basil mayonnaise) for a starter and Bron chose the pappardelle al braciato di agnello (house made pasta with braised lamb in balsamic, truffle oil, thyme and grated pecorino cheese) for her main. I went for the guanaciale di maiale (pork belly braised in balsamic and herbs, apple and rhubarb mousse, sweet balsamic reduction gluten free) and we agreed to share the insalata di stagione (crispy pancetta, tomatoes and butter lettuce, poached egg and black olives, parmesan scales and Italian dressing gluten free) as a side.

The calamari was tender and had a lovely spicy kick to it. I’d happily eat more of this.

Bron’s lamb was tender and full of flavour. The pasta was soft and absorbed the flavours. 2015-01-02_19.30.51_009_GARY_LUM

The salad had a lovely mix of pancetta, olives, tomatoes, lettuce and a poached egg.

My pork belly was good. Not the greatest pork belly but it was certainly tender and the crackling for the most part was crunchy with a few chewing bits around the edge. The night before Bron had cooked pork belly and it was much better. The crackling was perfect and the meat full of flavour.

For dessert Bron asked for a scoop of hazelnut gelato and I asked for an affogato.

 

2015-01-02_20.02.35_013_GARY_LUM 2015-01-02_20.02.50_016_GARY_LUM


We both enjoyed our meals at Bicicletta. The atmosphere was good and the service mostly good. It was certainly friendly but the time between the starter and main was a little long and when Bron asked for the wine list before we had our main meals delivered it never arrived. To be fair, it was busy and English wasn’t the first language for many of the wait staff.


 

On the way out Bron captured me posing in front of some public art, “The Modern Man”.

Yummy Lummy’s 2014 stats from JetPack

The good people behind JetPack have provided me with the 2014 stats summary for Yummy Lummy. 

If you want to see some stats like my most viewed page please click here.

The big surprises are the popularity of a home cooked meal and a place I wasn’t that positive about.  I’m also surprised that boobs and my love of boobs didn’t rate a mention at all. 

I’d particularly like to thank LorraineBarb and John for being the most prolific commenters on Yummy Lummy in 2014. I love that you take the time to leave me comments and connect with me 

I’d also like to thank Bron for being a major part of Yummy Lummy. We’ve visited a lot of restaurants and if you keep your eyes peeled I will soon have on Yummy Lummy my top 10 Canberra restaurants 

Please feel free to check out the 2014 stats and let me know what you think about the information there.

Can you believe my most viewed page? It continues to surprise me!

Do you have any resolutions for 2015? I do and I’ll share them soon. I hope you have a happy, peaceful and successful 2015. If you’re a blogger I hope you achieve everything you set out to achieve. If you’re a bloke wanting to find simple easy things to fill your belly, I hope I can help you. If you’re a Canberra resident wanting an idea on where and what to eat in Canberra I hope I can help you with some ideas and thoughts. 

One question I have for readers is should I accept product reviews or freebies for writing a post on a restaurant or product in 2015? Would you like to see product reviews?

The last salmon Monday for 2014

This year I’ve had salmon Monday every week. Mostly it’s been for dinner but sometimes for breakfast too. 

I’m not sure what I’ll do on Mondays in 2015. Meatless Monday has been suggested. I know that meatless Monday is a thing, especially amongst the healthy hipsters but that’s not me. Not that I don’t want an healthful life, but meatless Monday isn’t me. I’m tending to think it may be monster meat Monday or mammoth meat Monday or just meaty Monday.

I’m happy to take suggestions. What do you reckon my Monday meal meme should be?

To celebrate the last salmon Monday for 2014 I’ve shot a few photographs

So what should I eat on Mondays in 2015?
