Wellington is so spoiled with its frenzy of foodtrucks popping up everywhere. No sooner do I turn my back and boom a new one arrives in my midst. Outside Moore Wilson Fresh, two foodie trucksters get to showcase their wares on a rotational basis. There is also the permanent Chookwagon located upstairs in the carpark. Since visiting, Meatballers and EatStreet replaced Fat PoBoys and the French Crepe foodtruck. And this week The Greek FoodTruck has joined the food pod party. Plus The Moustache Milk & Cookie Foodtruck in Marion St has just hit Welly, temporarily from Auckland. Fancy a freshly baked bacon choc chip cookie with your gourmet shake or coffee? Apparently us Wellingtonians are more adventurous than the Jaffas, so go on and be a devil!

As I am located above the Muse Eatery and Bar, formerly known as the 3c bar, I  have no excuse to now not have this as my  local. This is the creation of the former Muse on Allen., which always had a great rep.  Continue reading

Get your mojo on!

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

Grill Meats Beer

I and many others never get the name of this restaurant right; Grill Meats Beer/Bear or Beer/Bear Meets/Meats Grill. Does a bear (beep) in the woods? Anyhoo you know where they are, in upper Cuba. GMB (doh that’s how you remember it) is the sister restaurant of Logan Brown’s. They have created a casual joint with a focus on sticky ribs, juicy burgers and crafted beer.
