The theme of this funky new restaurant is “Old Ways meets New Traditions”, which is emblazoned on the menu, best described as New Asian. Think spring rolls of wild mushrooms, palm heart, and vermicelli, grilled king prawn with tomato curry and shellfish oil, and a dessert of Vietnamese coffee salted caramel, condensed milk ice cream, wild rice and cacao nib…yum.

A favourite from last summer, The Boat House’s epic outdoor Armada Bar is back for 2021. Combining The Boat House’s fine dining talents with a laidback open-air lakeside setting (think: oysters and champagne), Armada Bar will be this summer’s ultimate destination for sunset sessions. Did someone say knock-off drinks with a view…?

For the love of cereal, Canberra finally will have its own cereal bar! Serving coffee, ice cream, dinner and (of course) cereal, it will be located on Dairy Road.

Wilma…or is it The Pearl? 

If you haven’t heard the news, we have something sad to tell you: Kokomo’s is no more.  Meet Wilma, Canberra’s first ever progressive Asian BBQ. The new restaurant launched officially on social media on Tuesday 16 November and it will be coming soon to the heart of the CBD.

But wait, that’s not where the mystery ends! Just days ago on Facebook, Kokomo’s changed their handle to The Pearl. So what is happening behind the hoarding – two venues in one? Perhaps one more casual and one fine dining? Or could The Pearl be a cocktail bar? We’ll just have to wait and see.
