Asian, Mexican, Kiwi, Vegan!

My fellow Welly instagrammers had posted a few pics of some of the delicious food being served at Willi’s Kitchen. But where the heck is this place you ask? It’s on Manners Street, just a few shops along from Bodyshop, before Pigeon park. Neatly tucked away – blink and you’d miss it. Continue reading

Lucky Strike- Beer and Brisket

Mention brisket, and my stomach does somersaults. In like Flynn. Hubby and I loved our bbq brisket in Texas last year, so to have Lucky Strike, a unique outdoor setting pop up in Welly, 12-14 Tory Street, behind The Lanes bowling alley, I can’t tell you how excited I was. Continue reading

Memories flooded back from my ‘uni’ (or ‘varsity’) days when I visited Victoria University campus for a coffee meeting.
