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
Mojo is taking over the world! Let it be said that I think I have visited all the Mojos in NZ including Auckland, Dunedin and the new one in Market Lane Apartments in Welly. I even followed in Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown’s footsteps, after she officially opened the one in Xian, China (see blog post). Nothing mojoey gets past me. Now they have opened one up in the historic St James Theatre on Courtenay Place. Continue reading
On a recent Friday night, we were supposed to eat at the Cuba St night market, however I’m not sure how but we ended up at the former ‘Arirang’, now Mrs Kim’s Korean Kitchen on the corner of Ghuznee and Victoria Street but we did.

It was so exciting to take my besties to Hanging Ditch for a pre-dinner cocktail before our mini reunion. This place is in the funky Leeds Quarter next to Goldings Free Dive and opposite the WCF (Wellington Chocolate Factory). Continue reading

The Ramen Shop in Newtown, is a spinoff business of Hillside Kitchen and Cellar in Thorndon. This concept originated as a pop-up shop around town back in May 2013 and this is now their permanent home. It’s described as a “ramen (everyday Japanese streetfood) joint with a kiwi twist”. It’s extremely clever, unique and it works! Continue reading
Gordon Blue is what we refer to in jest as Cordon Bleu. Ooh la la my friends, it’s best we don’t jest as this experience is nothing to scoff at. Continue reading
Hubby and I got invited to Grand Century in Tory St for a Chinese New Year celebratory dinner with our adopted whanau. This was our first visit for dinner as we’ve eaten here several times for a yum-cha lunch. Continue reading
It appeared that everyone had heard of or been to Poppies Vineyard in Martinborough except me. Ok my friend wasn’t having that. She was treating me to my belated birthday lunch treat on a recent Saturday, to help me keep up with the play of course. Continue reading
