ZUCCHINI BROS PIZZA & PASTA
Since opening in 1988, @zucchini_bros have been making some of the best pizzas in Canberra
Using a dough made with a secret family recipe, Zucchini Bros’ pizzas are thick and include a very generous covering of fresh toppings. It’s not hard to see why they have received multiple ‘Canberra’s Best Pizza’ awards over the years
As well as their pizzas, they have a great range of pastas and risottos too
King Phat was pumped when Jr chose Zucchini Bros for his Phaturday. King Phat has been eating there since it opened and has many fond memories from all-you-can-eat birthday dinners to seeing Laurie Daley and Gary Belcher having dinner there back when they were winning grand finals for the raiders. As a kids, it doesn’t get much better than seeing your idols at your local! He used to get this Aussie pizza every time 🍕
This time we had the:
GARLIC PIZZA BREAD (pizza base topped w/ fresh garlic, olive oil, shallots, mixed Italian herbs & cheese)
MEXICANO PIZZA (pepperoni, onion, capsicum & jalapeño on a tomato & cheese base) – hold the jalapeño which King Phat pronounced with a ‘J’ much to the amusement of his supportive fam!
POCO LOCO TORTELLINI PASTA (pepperoni, mushroom, shallots, garlic, chilli, white wine, cream, napoli sugo)
One bite of the pizza and the memories came flooding back. They quite obviously still use the pizza dough secret recipe as it was as amazing as it was back in the day …. It’s distinct & there’s nothing else like it! The pasta was fantastic too. It was packed full of flavour, comforting and had just the right amount of kick
Zucchini Bros’ is located at the Chisholm shops and more recently have opened up a second pizzeria in the SQ1 Building, Greenway

HOMEMADE CHINESE ROAST DUCK PANCAKES
Move over Mr Wei, there’s a new best duck in town!
Princess Phat made us some Roast Duck Pancakes for last weekend’s healthy pre Phaturday dinner and it gave Mr Wei’s ‘best duck in Canberra’ a run for its money!! Lol
A whole duck was rubbed with 5 spice and then roasted
The flour free pancakes were homemade, baked in the oven using a spring form cake tin
The fillings were all made from scratch as well including a hoisin sauce and carrot & ginger salsa
It was all put out on the buffet for us to assemble ourselves to our liking. Apparently they’re only supposed to have a little bit of filling however that rule was ignored by some!
Jr and King went back for seconds, then thirds …. and then fourths just to be sure… and possibly fifths!?! There was still plenty left for leftovers for Jr at school on Monday and there was plenty of lunchbox envy going on in the playground!

PIZZA SO GOOD YOUR NONNA WOULD BE PROUD!
This is the @pizza_artigiana motto and for good reason. Their traditional wood fired Italian pizza is pizza at its tastiest 👌
We chose some simple but delicious flavours:
Quattro Formaggi - gorgonzola, provolone, mozzarella and shaved Pecorino
Paola - thinly sliced potato with mozzarella, Italian sausage and thyme 🍕
RUBY PAVLOVA AND MILKSHAKE
Back to San Churro for some more Ruby love ... this time to try the new Ruby Pavlova and milkshake!
This was the perfect way to top off one of our all time fave Phaturdays.... Grease Monkey for mains and Ruby Chocolate for dessert!
What's your favourite variety of chocolate? Right now, ours is Ruby!
PHATURDAY does PHAT PANDA (Desserts!)! After our amazing mains, consisting of some Phat Paws, Naughty Paws and Panda Rolls it was time a Phat Panda Dessert or three!
Jr had ‘The Maryanne’ that we won in @maryanneirhia ‘s birthday giveaway - (chocolate waffle loaded with 3 scoops of gelato , marshmallows, M&Ms, 100s & 1000s, Oreos, strawberry topping and chocolate sticks!
King Phat went 2x dessert doughnut flavoured baos with black sesame & taro gelato, topping with white/milk choc drops
Princess went the Puff Waffle, also with sesame & taro gelato & white/milk choc drops
After drooling over photos we’ve seen of Phat Panda’s dessert creations on insta for months and was so darn good to finally dig our teeth into them for ourselves!!

PHATURDAY does PHAT PANDA - 'Mains'
With a name like @phatpandaurbanasian, it was only a matter of time before we went there for a Phaturday
The menu is AWESOME, focussing on popular urban Asian Street food with modern twists that elevate the dishes to the next level
Choosing what to order was a challenge as we love all the dishes they offer from baos, laksa, rice paper rolls, chicken wings, pork buns etc just to name a few … and of course we were also curious about their famous Puff Waffles
After much deliberation, this is was what we ended up ordering for our mains: 🍽
BBQ Pork Phat Paw - BBQ pork, Sticky Honey Soy Sauce with sesame sauce and shallots in a Puff Waffle
Fried Chicken Naughty Paw - Fried Chicken, BBQ hoisin Sauce, spicy mayo on a bed of fried chips
Vietnamese Pork Panda Roll
We were blown away with the freshness and amazing flavours of our meals … and we are still buzzing from our Phat experience! We will be back again soon so we can work out way through the menu!
Stay tuned for dessert…. 🍨
We chose @maxbrenneraus last Phat after sadly seeing that it's Kingston Foreshore location has closed... 😭 We hit up the Belco shop just in case the unlikely event it'll suffer the same fate one day 🍨
We went one of our old faithfuls, the "Chocolate Pizza with a Crunch" (Crunchy cornflakes, pecans & marshmallows) 🍕
After this pic was taken we took this bad boy home and phat-ified it up lots of extra white chocolate and popped it on the oven to melt it!!!! This was another stoke of genius from the ever so creative Princess Phat 😇 I'm not sure which of her ideas was best ... extra choccy on the Chocolate Pizza, or the Naan bread/Butter chicken wraps!? Either way, Jr and King Phat loves the way she thinks 😂

CHEESY GARLIC NAAN + BUTTER CHICKEN WRAP
What happens when you take a cheesy garlic Naan, top it with a delicious butter chicken from @canberrarestobar & roll it up into a wrap? You go to Indian foodie heaven, that's what! 😀
We obviously ordered takeaway so we could pull this off! However we were blown away with how nice it is inside Oh Canberra so we'll definitely be eating in next time! It's right near our work in Woden so we'll hit it up for their lunch specials asap too! 👌
It wouldn’t be the done thing to sneak some morning tea goodies home from work, in gladwrap I brought in specially, so we could have them for Phaturday would it? Didn’t think so! 😂
On a totally ‘unrelated’ matter, here’s a piccy of a delicious blondie we had last Phaturday, baked by colleague and fellow foodie @canberrabrunchdiaries 👌
