It’s a chilly May night when we arrive for a group dinner for 7pm at Jehangir Indian in Swinger Hill. The first thing that strikes me is the decorations…
It’s just past 8.30am on a Saturday morning, and Lonsdale Street in Braddon is starting to wake up. We managed to get a table at Elk and Pea without booking or having to squeeze in with someone else, simply because we arrived right on opening (8am). A day of assignment writing stretches out ahead of me, and I feel a little motivation is in order…
It’s 4.30pm on a Friday and we play ‘which Canberra restaurant is still taking bookings?’. We laughably try for Eighty-Six (definitely full) and I suggest to Boyfriend that maybe, just maybe, we’ll be able to get into Soju Girl. We have talked about going forever. They’ve got a table available at 6, and a table available at 10. We hesitate, and go with 6.
I notice it a long time before I hear about it: there’s something going on upstairs from Ha Ha Bar on Belconnen‘s Emu Bank. What is it? A club? Part of Ha Ha Bar? Eventually I hear about La De Da and my curiosity is sparked. With a new menu recently launched, visiting becomes a priority.
I’ve previously written positively about my experience(s) at Siren Bar. The following review is anything but positive.
