Jin's Bibimbar

Jin's Bibimbar

The name pretty much says it all, they offer a range of bibimbaps.  Bibimbap is a Korean dish which is 'mixed rice', of course together with other ingredients.  If you haven't had one before, the friendly staff will be more than happy to explain to you how it works.  Tick the boxes, and create your own for under $10.  Your bibimbap is constructed in front of you.

Empress Chinese Restaurant

Empress Chinese Restaurant

The lights have lit up again on Greenhill Road opposite the Burnside Village Shopping Centre.  Eastern Garden Chinese Restaurant has moved and in its place is new restaurant called Empress.  The owners have certainly put a lot of effort into renovating this restaurant.  There is a takeaway section at the back and an impressive grand entrance into the restaurant.  Empress specialises in shared plates and yum cha.  We came here for yum cha one time, but I am just going to concentrate on dinner this time.

Rose Garden Restaurant

Rose Garden Restaurant

One night we were strolling down Churchill Road in Prospect and entered into a Thai Restaurant called Rose Garden.  A narrow front entrance led us into a bigger area.  There is nothing special about the decor, we were there for the food.  There was certainly a decent range of Thai food on the menu and the prices are acceptable.

Hot pot dishes are popular in Korean cuisine, and it is perfect to have on a cold night like tonight.  We selected the octopus hot pot.  It is a spicy hot pot which consists of bulgogi beef and fresh octopus.  This is cooked at the table at your leisure.  Imagine beef cooked in a sesame soy sauce marinade, fresh octopus soaked in a rich spicy broth together with vegetables.

Settlers Gin Range & The Collins Bar Spritz Cocktail Collection Launch

I was at the launch of Settlers Gin range at The Collins bar in the Hilton hotel a couple of days ago.  I was not very fond of gin before, but I think after that night I am proud to say I have become a Gin fan.  The new Spritz Cocktail menu was featuring the Settlers Gin Collection at the bar.  On the night, we tasted some of the finest local gin on offer.
