Dry combination noodles & Thai iced coffee from Boonchu

One of my all time favourite Thai food places is Boonchu. This place is a little different to other Thai restaurants because they mainly serve Thai street food such as noodles & rice with a choice from a variety of simple but full of flavour dishes. One of my all time favourite is the dry…

Tumeric & basil chicken with begs & egg stir fry rice noodles

This is another easy after work homecooked meal. First put a pack or however much you need (I use half a pack for 2 people which is 2 cakes of noodles) into a bowl of hot water & set aside. Then, cut a piece of chicken breast into cubes, marinate with tumeric powder, dried basil…

Coffee with rum & raisin gelato from Giardina’s Gelati

We just had to go back to Giardina’s for dessert after our dinner at The Loose Moose (see previous post) seeing that we were in the area. This time, I tried the coffee gelato & the rum & raisin gelato! Oh my gosh, they were both amazing! Instagram: @giardinagelati

Dinner at The Loose Moose

Been wanting to try this place for a long time & finally got around to it with some friends. We tried the classic burger (all their burgers are served as an open burger), sweet potato fries, Kentucky wings & frickles (fried pickles). All of these were nicely shared between 3 people. The frickles were really…

Lemon cream chicken & broccoli topped with shaved parmesan

This is a really easy meal to make… just cut up a piece of chicken breast into cubes, season with salt & pepper & drop into a pan with a swirl of hot oil to brown. Add chopped up to bite size broccoli florets & some frozen vegetables (peas, corn & carrots). Then add some…

Coffee & Gelato from Giardina Gelati

Coffee & gelato is a perfect match made in heaven. Something hot & something cold but most importantly, both of my favourites! This is a new gelato place in Broadbeach, a proper Italian one. Their gelato is made using fresh ingredients! I tried the caramelised fig & the pistachio, both of which were amazing.. adding…

Strawberry & macadamia creme caramel from Royal Copenhagen

As I mentioned in my last post, I love ice cream & both occurrences, this post & the last was actually on the very same day… the last was earlier in the day with a friend & this was later at night with hubs! Hahhaha.. Royal Copenhagen is a great place to get ice cream….

Nutellatte & Nitro coffee from Paradox Coffee Roasters

Paradox Coffee Roasters is a “must visit” coffee place in Surfers Paradise if you are a coffee lover. If you are also a fan of Nutella, then you can’t go pass the Nutellatte which is a cold brew with milk topped with a generous scoop of Nutella in the neck of the bottle after it…

Buffet breakfast at Novotel Surfers Paradise

Hubby & I were attending a 3 day conference at Surfers Paradise which is about 30 minutes away from home. In the past, we would have driven in as this conference occurred annually & the location is actually nearer than my drive to work each day, but this year, we got a good deal &…
