For those intending to visit Canberra, the city is home to a good range of restaurants representing a wide range of cuisines. Many of the restaurants that we visited are located within the CBD so you don’t have travel far to find a good meal.

Despite including the word express in its name, Killiney Kopitiam Express' Canberra branch offers a huge selection of Singaporean dishes. While it requires a preorder, their Singaporean Chilli Crab was very delicious with the crabs cooked just right and chilli gravy that was not too spicy.

Glasshouse Cafe along Binara Street is a good choice for those looking for brunch or cafe-style dishes. Their Mexican Poached Eggs provide something different from the usual breakfast options. It had smoky and spiced chorizo and poached eggs that had lovely runny yolks.

A popular hit with diners, Omi Canberra is where you can enjoy Japanese cuisine that has a bit of a modern flair. Their Black Pepper Premium Wagyu Donburi had meltingly tender pieces of wagyu accompanied by a soft-boiled egg, edamame beans, pickled ginger and pepper sauce with a good amount of peppery flavour.

Located within Casino Canberra, Natural Nine is where you can enjoy delectable Asian cuisine. Their Steamed Barramundi Fillet was a joy to eat, with tender barramundi and enough sauce to ensure the fish stay moist. Ginger slices imparted a gingery flavour to the dish.

For those desiring Chinese food in a more casual setting, there is Dumpling King at Garema Place. We particularly enjoyed the Szechuan Chilli Chicken, which had tender chunks of chicken set off by a crisp coating. It also had the characteristic tongue-numbing sensation associated with Szechuan peppercorns.

Located a bit further afield, Pollen Cafe within the Australian National Botanic Garden provides a convenient option for visitors to the garden. The Healthy Breakfast is both a unique and healthy dining option, consisting of roasted eggplants and tomatoes which still retained a bit of bite, and dukkah and za’atar for a flavoursome dish. Injera, an Ethiopian flatbread, also provided something different from the usual bread.

The George Harcourt Inn at Gold Creek Road provides a convenient dining option for visitors to the various tourist attractions in the area. Their Chicken Schnitzel notably included lemon pepper in the coating for a hint of citrus flavour and panko crumbs made it crispier than normal schnitzels. The expected chips and salad came with the dish along with your choice of sauce.
