Papa Satay now has a second restaurant in Allen Street, just off Courtenay Place in the CBD. Their original one is doing very well in the burbs of Johnsonville. As a Malaysian cuisine fan, I was inspired to organise a cheap and cheerful girls night out. Continue reading

A slice of ‘curry’ heaven!

I’ve suddenly gravitated back to Indian cuisine. I used to make Indian curries from scratch years ago, but one day hubby decided he didn’t like Indian, so strangely I stopped eating it too. However halleluyah, he’s seen the light, after trying a curry in Fiji, and now is ok with it again.   Roll on a trip to India to do a comparison. Anyway I digress. Curry Heaven has just opened up in Bond Street and it’s already a gold mine. Continue reading

Green, green grass of home!

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

This week I tried some outstanding restaurants/cafes on my work trip to Hawkes Bay. I ate like a Queen (literally) as she actually does eat almost paleo-like!

Goodness how uncanny that Fidel Castro just recently died and I’ve just revisited his namesake peaceful place in Welly. This actually wasn’t our first choice for the gals regular catchup but the menu across the road just didn’t do it for us, so Fidels it was. It’s a Wellington institution and you just never tire of it as it just rocks all day long morning, lunch and dinner. Well we didn’t experience any aftershocks, and I mean rocks as in knocks it out the ball park everytime. Continue reading
