Carlo’s as a tradeoff between a hearty meal and something a bit upmarket. Flatheads as a fish-and-chip shop where you can take a beer.

Flatheads or the van at Wanniassa for fish & Chips, Sage or Verve for a slap-up feed and The Ginger Room or Anise for somthing special. Can’t go past the wine list at Ginger Room for choice and value.

WEnt to Ginseng in Manuka the other night. Upmarket Chinese with regular prices. The ninja waiters pulled our chairs out, had our table reset, water and glasses and our napkins on our laps almost before we sat down. Great food too, they even made tofu taste good.

I used to like Montezumas but then they became wholly franchised, leaving me rather disenfranchised. They still have the best margaritas around though and they do have a comprehensive allergy/intolerance menu which is fantastically useful.

Mezzalira on London is good 1 on 1 with my lady.
For the undisputed best Duck/chicken/seafood/vegetarian laksa in town go to the Tai Garden restaraunt in Dickson chinatown, in the courtyard near turkoz and Zeffers

Pangea in Manuka – where Tossolini’s used to be – if you haven’t checked it out yet do it soon.

On the cheap – can’t beat the Schnitty at the Austrian Club in Mawson.

And with Vic on Ramas – that place kicks arse but I would advise take-away or delivery because the dining space can get a bit squeezy.

Spice of India in Belcos Mallos does one of the hottest vindaloos going around…

Speaking of which does anyone know where I can get a good fish curry… I used to get a beautiful goan fish curry from toorak…. and there used to be a good one in watson but someone told me that the indian restaurants there had closed…

Sammy’s Kitchen in Civic for the chicken laksa that you will compare every other laksa you ever eat again against.

FEKERTE’S ETHIOPIAN CUISINE restaurant in Dickson do a pretty good fish curry type of thing. And whilst not my fave place, I can recommend the restaurant all round. If you have a few people, go and try the lunch banquet (the fish dish is a part of it).

As for my fave eating hole, it may not be fine dining, but Marty’s van in Phillip is always pretty handy coming home late from a show.

For class – I also a fondness for Sage.

Cheap – the Nixon Doodle House can’t be beat (especially now they’ve stopped washing the Laksa pots again).

I’d also like to see a smackdown between Jimmy’s in Dickson and Ginseng in Manuka (though I’m backing Jimmy – he’s a scary looking dude). Both are reasonably priced and excellent on all fronts.

Mr. Shab: Apart from the duck’s feet at Jimmy’s. Brrrrr… I forgot: In terms of Asian, I also love the Griffith Vietnamese and Khin Do (sp?) at Macquarie Shops. I think they are run by the same people.
