Three quick food tips from my Canberra explorations….

1. Crust Bakery at the Fyshwick Markets

Crust Bakery have really fantastic pies, including a lamb, rosemary and merlot one which is just FABULOUS.  Their coffee is really nice as well.  It’s always busy out there at the Fyshwick Markets, so be prepared to get in line.  Here’s more of their details.

2. Ah Chu Asian Provisions

Indonesian food lovers, rejoice!  This little Asian grocer in Phillip (near Westfield Woden) has lots of Indonesian spice packets, cake mixes (like the one I used to make the bika ambon above… little yeasty coconut cakes with an awesome texture like crumpets that I love!) and even special snacks like Kripik Balado… and… wait for it…. TEHBOTOL!!!  They also have lots of the Garuda kacang snacks and more, as well as some Malaysian foodstuffs (including premix sachets to make Georgetown White Coffee… unfortunately absolutely nowhere as good as actual Georgetown White Coffee).  The prices are really reasonable and the owner is very friendly.

I found out about it from this blog. It’s at 7/67 Townshend St, Phillip.

3. Urban Food Store, Acton

No photo for this one, sorry.  But I can very much recommend their scrambled silken tofu for breakfast.  All their other breakfasts looked fabulous as well.  And it is nowhere near as crowded as super popular Canberra breakfast spots like Silo Bakery.  Really great atmosphere.  It’s in the bottom of the New Acton apartment building, right down the end of Marcus Clarke St (near the lower part of the ANU campus). More details here.

    Hi Ashlee, Thanks for the pingback. Nice to know another Canberra blogger. All the more sweeter that you have interest and lived in Indonesia before. 😀
    I SO LOVE TehBotol.. *swoon* though they always give me sore throat if I drank them too much. My theory is.. the massive amount of sugar scratches my throat.

      Tehbotol is awesome, but you are right, it is super sweet! But I have a sweet tooth, so that suits me just fine.

      Glad I found this little grocery, thanks to your blog! 🙂

    Hi Betty,

    Crust for sure is great, i was actually looking out for them and read your post, you have a great pic in this post, did you click it yourself ? Thanks for the link of crust, wondering how come they dont have a website i guess for now, we have to browse through

    Their pies and tarts may be good but the lady who served me today was surly when I asked if a baguette was sourdough. A pity when the other, younger staff are all very friendly.
