Food in Uluwatu

Uluwatu; the ultimate southern point of Bali – most famous for its surf, and understandably so. But with good surf comes Australians, and inevitably, good food. Uluwatu is quite a spread out area; you definitely need a scooter to get around – which is handy not just for beach hopping, but also for cafe hopping….

Pacinos

Pacinos Italian Family Restaurant (300 Epsom Road, Flemington) The main reason we visted Pacinos was because it was in Flemington, close to the race course, which was convenient for us because that was where Cirque De Soleil was on – and we were going to it! The circus started relatively early, so we wanted to…

Max on Hardware

Max on Hardware (54 – 58 Hardware Lane) We had been wandering the streets for way too long; a group of six looking for dinner in Melbourne can be quite a difficult task! Most places don’t seem to accept bookings, but six people usually means a decent wait at most places too. And then when…

Portofino

Portofino (26 Victoria Road, Devonport) The restaurant is a million times better than its website, I promise! Up a cute little alley way and then up some stairs, Portofino is on the second storey of a building that overlooks the main street of Devonport. Serving upper-class Italian food, the menu is extensive – and while not…

Jamie’s Italian

  Jamie’s Italian (107 Pitt Street) A dream come true, this was an unexpected surprise. We were at the apartment, without wifi and on a bit of time restriction because we were due to meet up with friends. We had no idea where to go for dinner (and couldn’t research anywhere) but we had noticed that…

Fratelli Fresh

Fratelli Fresh (81 Macleay Street, Potts Point) As we were staying in Potts Point, naturally we were delighted a Fratelli’s just down the road. Self-proclaimed as one of Sydney and Melbourne’s best Italian restaurants, we couldn’t wait to dive head on into some delicious pasta. To our absolute dismay, when we turned up not long after…

Osteria Del Toro

Osteria Del Toro (60 Tory Street) One of the first things that jumps to mind when I think of Osteria is how spacious it is. I can’t imagine this place ever booking out, but I’m sure it does. It’s bar would be one of the most impressive in Wellington, both aesthetically and content-wise. I learnt…

CinCin

CinCin (156 Cuba Street) Nestled in the heart of Cuba Street, CinCin is yet another of Wellington’s Italian gems. From the moment you walk in and are greeted by the staff (all of whom seem to be male, European and handsome) it is a very authentic experience. The place is so much bigger than it…

The Laneway Progressive Dinner

        Most that know me know just how much I adore Leeds Street. It’s quaint, quirky and oh-so-Wellington. So when I saw this event advertised it felt like a match made in heaven (it also included Egmont Street Eatery – what a bonus!). I got tickets as soon as they came on…

Mediterranean Food Warehouse

Mediterranean Food Warehouse (Multiple locations) When I first moved to Wellington I lived up in Kelburn, and to my delight there was a Mediterranean Food Warehouse around the corner. I quickly became a frequent visitor,  encouraged by there being a stream of vouchers available on GrabOne. It wasn’t until I moved into town this year did I…
