Bebemos

Bebemos (88 Riddiford Street, Newtown) With its distinctive logo, beaut location, and expansive menu, this South American tapas bar is also a constant on the craft beer scene. With so many beers both on tap and bottled, it can be a tough time choosing. I feel a bit sorry for the staff there actually, because…

Five Boroughs

Five Boroughs (corner of Roxburgh and Marjoribanks Streets) Highly recommended to me by one of my vegetarian friends due to the possibility of vegetarians’ being able to order any burger and having the meat substituted out in exchange for the vegetarian patty (which suddenly opens the burger world up if you are vegetarian) I was…

A bite-size piece of WOAP!

This time last year I was relatively new to Wellington and when WOAP 2015 came about I was seriously caught off guard. So many events to go, not many tickets left and even less money to fund the situation. But this year I was ready. By the time tickets came on sale I had already…

                      Wellington on a Plate brings with it a huge array of delicious eats, tasty drinks and an awesome feeling of unity, as local businesses come together to produce some terrific events and menu offers. Last year the Battle of the Burger saw 81 entries,…

Little Beer Quarter

Little Beer Quarter (6 Edward Street) Tucked away in the heart of the city, Little Beer Quarter (colloquially known as LBQ) is adored by foodies and craft beer lovers alike. An extensive drinks list on offer, only to be accompanied by a great food menu too – LBQ is ever-increasing in popularity, as word spreads…

Goldings Free Dive Bar

Goldings Free Dive Bar (14 Leeds Street) Anyone who knows me knows I’m an absolute sucker for Leeds Street. It’s just so quaint, atmospheric and downright funky! Goldings is no different. With skis hanging from the roof, and more knickknacks than imaginable decorating every other centimetre,Goldings would have to be one of my favourite bars in…
