Launch party: 2014 People's Choice Awards, Canberra

What's my favourite restaurant? Where is the best cafe in Canberra? These were the tough questions running through my mind as I read the invitation to the launch of OutinCanberra's 2014 People's Choice Awards.

The Awards showcase the best of Canberra's social scene across five categories: Restaurant, Cafe, Entertainment Venue, Attractions and Events, Nightlife Venue.

Canberra has really stepped up its game in recent years and is proactively cultivating a fantastic food scene, helped along in part with the efforts of Visit Canberra and the tourism industry.

Tonight's launch party at Walt and Burley brought together representatives from the hospitality, entertainment and tourism industries and social media influencers to celebrate the best Canberra attractions and to kick off the voting!

Get excited Canberra, because the most anticipated foodie event in September, The Forage, is on this weekend!!

My Brisbane foodcation is wrapping up now and I'm looking forward to an exciting Saturday afternoon in Canberra, sampling street food from mobile vendors, cafes, wineries, and listening to local musicians.

The Forage is held every three months and Saturday 27th September is the first time it will be held in Aircraft Hangar #47, Fairbairn Precinct. Previously being held in New Acton, the change in venue is a reflection of its growing popularity. I went along to the last one and it was absolutely packed with crowds. Dagwood dogs are out. Gourmet street food is in.

Peruvian food has really taken off in Australia as of late and Mr Papa (Peruvian food stand) has become a familiar favourite at The Forage. I am seriously in love with their chanchitos - Peruvian pork belly sandwiches! The combination of flavours is genius: the tangy salsa, the incredible chilli cream sauce, the golden sweet potato, and the star of the show - the slow cooked pork belly are all wrapped up in a crusty bread roll. Delicious.

The other mobile vendor that's worth the wait is the Hardcore Carnivore food truck. You can get deliciously meaty rolls from this chrome-coloured food van.

There's plenty to eat and do. If you have had your fill of the street food delights, you can work off your food baby by doing a spot of shopping at the Hustle and Scout fashion markets too!

The Low Down When: 2pm - 7pm Saturday 27 September 2014 Where: Aircraft Hangar #47, 8-10 Point Cook Ave, Fairbairn Precinct. What I love: Mr Papa's chanchitos More info: http://theforage.com.au
