Ooh la la, what a great deal. $49 pperson for Beaujolais Nouveau brunch, all you can eat, excluding drink. Plus quality food and service to boot, in plush surroundings. Get yourselves to the newly re-opened Jardin Grill, Sofitel Wellington on a weekend, in Bolton Street. It’s amazing. Continue reading
This is the finale Mexico tour post. My heart goes out again to all those people impacted by the devastation of the second earthquake. Continue reading
Bambuchi has snuck quietly into the Hataitai ‘burbs, next to the White Rabbit Café. Local BFF foodie friend Annette recommended this place. She knows me so well. Being foodie competitive, I couldn’t believe she beat me here first.
Nothing excites me more than sharing with you, my annual trip to Denarau Fiji. Hubby goes for work so I tag along for the ride and enjoy a week of bliss by the pool. Fiji will always be my home away from home as we’ve been coming here for years so it’s very familiar. It’s nice to see a few changes too. Continue reading
My last minute organised catchup with friends at the Botanist in Lyall Bay, proved worthwhile. We were all newbies and terribly excited. I was warned about the bad service and wait for coffees/food, however that so did not happen for us. I take positive good vibes with me and always have a pleasant experience. It was perfect on all counts with a stunning Welly day to top it off. Continue reading
Hey rubber duckie get your ears on, as it looks like we’ve found us a Tomboy. Tomboy! The cutest, quaintest eatery in town, tucked into Marjoribanks St, in the hip hood of Mt Victoria in Wellington. Continue reading
I was so excited to learn that the Beach House & Kiosk, a former cringeworthy café, not far from my Brooklyn hood, had been kissed by a frog and turned into a Princess. All credit of course goes to ex Elements café owners Scott and Nicola Barrett. These guys have a great rep and they’ve struck gold yet again.
I’d read and heard good reviews about Comes and Goes, so being competitive as I am, I wanted to check it out pronto. After a tough Sunday hill walk we arrived bang-on noon. There were people milling outside the door so my empty stomach and heart was in my mouth, as I was concerned there was a queue. Foodietraveller and her hubby do not wait. Sadly we were told the wait was 40 mins for a table, however I suggested we’d be happy sitting on the bar stools, so our host obliged. We also had a great view of the busy, open kitchen.

After a 14.5km Sunday hill walk we thought it would be nice to finish up on Welly’s waterfront, so where else to go for a cheap and cheerful Asian? Wagamama of course. We tend to visit once a year and this place has grown on me. It still turns out some darn good tucker. Continue reading
