Auckland: Miss Istanbul

Miss Istanbul is a relatively new eatery located in the heart of trendy scene, Ponsonby Central fitted out in the previously located Fish Fish. The two owners – one serving us and one making the food, took me back to the authentic Turkish eateries where eateries are family run where there was only little English…

Auckland: The Culpeper

The Culpeper, headed by hottie, MKR NZ Judge Gareth Stewart and under the Nourish Group Family, a restaurant I had been meaning to try after feeding my face with a pork belly corn dog at Street Eats. If that doesn’t excite you then I don’t know what will!

Auckland: Gypsy Caravan

A quirky joint in the heart of Ponsonby. To my surprise the day we turned up on a mid week day for lunch, was to a very quiet and empty restaurant. However dont let that scare you off, I am sure its pumping during the weekends or evenings.

Auckland: Tiger Burger

Tiger Burger: Korean fusion brought by a couple joining the best of both of their backgrounds. Tucked in the midst of the Grey Lynn shops, it’s great to finally have a fast food option that caters for people to sit in. It’s frustrating when you want to try all the yummy takeaways but live too…

Auckland: Tok Tok

Who can keep up with another Asian fusion eatery in the Auckland food scene! I have been here twice both times for lunch. Its a bit of a catch 22, it has a great outdoor seating which is perfect for summer, but eating dishes which are majorly curries it can be a bit of a…

Auckland: Tao Restaurant & Bar

Through my laziness of walking down the road to have dinner being too lazy to cook nearing Xmas, I headed to the recently opened Tao Restaurant and Bar in Newmarket. After seeing pictures online of the dumplings, it was added to the list.Β 

Auckland: White + Wongs

White and Wongs, one of the newer Asian fusion restaurants to pop up in Auckland. After trying their food at Street Eats, and impressed by their bang bang chicken roti roll, it is only natural to hit up their restaurant.

Auckland: Kiss Kiss

Being back for a few weeks now, its been great to see the change in the Auckland food scene. I should probably look at getting some work soon, but in the mean time its been a good excuse to eat out and fill my belly for breakfast, lunch and dinner at all these chic places….

  That is a Meat Ball-er fan. Balls and Co bring an elegant but fairly priced menu offering a selection of meat balls with your choice of sauces. It is simple, to the point and you’re not asked if you want to pay for water – free tap water is automatically placed at your table!…

#London Bloggers Supper Club: Mommi Raw Bar + Grill

The girls and I headed out for our monthly bloggers brunch club. After seeing newly opened restaurant Mommi in the Timeout Mag, I thought it was a perfect excuse to head out to clapham for a change. With a beautifully sunny day, we made the most of sitting outside – Tip – which makes for…

London: Flesh and Buns

Flesh and BunsΒ has to be one of the only places I have returned to more than once. New to London can make you hesitant about whats going to impress you, with so many options to try and opinions differ quite a bit compared to NZ.
