Milky Lane

Friends and I ate here for the first time today after church.

The pop korn chicken was delicious, crispy, and juicy, and that gravy was delightful.

Sweet potato fries were good, potato fries even better.

Milky Lane burgers with bacon were well received by my friends, although my Milky Lane burger with pineapple could have had more pineapple.

Big L delicious but deceptively spicy, so don’t order if you don’t like your chicken burgers hot.

Milkshakes were also delicious but pricey at almost $10 for the large.

We ate outside where water sprinklers helped with the summer heat.

Overall, I would go back for the chicken, and perhaps another burger from their wide selection.

On Flinders

My family and I had a Friday dinner at On Flinders, a lovely little Italian restaurant in Manuka, and it did not disappoint.

A truly flavourful arrabiata–not too spicy, not too mild–for my wife and garlic bread that exploded with flavour were the star choices.

I also had fish and chips that were made from scratch and just delightful.

My two kids had the prawn and garlic pizzas, respectively, which they also enjoyed.

Also had great service. Overall a good experience, and we’ll definitely return when we’re in the area.
