E-One 哥麻辣烫 (Brisbane CBD, Australia)

Several weeks ago, when I was in Brisbane for a trip, I wanted to have some dinner in the CBD that is not a fast food and not something fancy as I was on my own. I also want to try something that I haven’t tried before, hence places like...

Chocolate Boutique Cafe (Auckland CBD, New Zealand)

I had been in New Zealand for thirteen years now and we visit Parnell once in a while. For some reason I never been to Chocolate Boutique Cafe up until now after searching for some place to have some dessert. Was it in a busy place where there is a...

Woodpecker Hill (Auckland CBD, New Zealand)

An ex-colleague of mine always asked me whether I had tried Woodpecker Hill, I never had until now and it was a nice surprise from my wife. To be honest I never knew what to expect in here as the only time I heard of this was from that ex-colleague...

The Hidden Village (Auckland CBD, New Zealand)

There is a new Filipino in town and we literally dined in here a month ago, a few days after it was opened. It’s one of those unplanned visits after we had a short stroll in Ponsonby, it was snack time so we thought of having some grilled cheese sandwich...

Otto’s Mediterranean Kitchen (North Shore City, New Zealand)

Poke Poke (North Shore City, New Zealand)

More than a year ago Poke eateries became a big hit in Auckland with many shops opening offering this raw fish salad from Hawaii. I did not join the bandwagon because even before it started here, I had travelled to Hawaii several time and tried it from where it all...

Calendula Cottage Cafe & Gardens (Glenbrook, New Zealand)

There are many unexpected places in New Zealand and this was one of them, literally tucked in the middle of nowhere, located in Glenbrook this restaurant is surrounded by farms on every side. An oasis in the middle of lush farm greeneries this place surprised me. I dined in here...

Castaways Restaurant & Bar (Waiuku, New Zealand)

We had our departments conference several weeks ago in this amazing location called Castaways, I had my eye on this resort many years ago but did not have the time to check it out until now. It’s such a good venue and if you plan to have your conference here,...

Kiraku (Auckland CBD, New Zealand)

If you’re looking for an authentic straight forward ramen, then look no further, this is the closest thing to what we had tried in Japan. Authenticity does not stop with the ramen even the place looks authentic, cramped in a small space that looks like those small Izakaya bars in...
