Over the Moon Cheese (Putaruru, New Zealand)

According to Over the Moon Cheese, “Cheese is an adventure!” Indeed, it was and we experienced that adventure when we visited this place after we had an early morning in Blue Springs on our way to Alphra Lavender and Blueberry Country. This was not on our initial plan but after...

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

I love the little eateries at Takapuna eating precinct Fortieth & Hurstmere, so far, we have tried Poke Poke, Burger Burger, Bird on a Wire and the latest one which is Otto’s Mediterranean Kitchen. We are halfway on trying them all and only got 3 left on the list, so...

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...

Eden Noodles (North Shore City, New Zealand)

Hamish Stewart Catering (Auckland, New Zealand)

I’m quite new in this catering thing, I think I had tried six different companies as of this date and still discovering a lot of things. So far most of what I tried were amazing, delivering great delicious and tasty treats for my team. This time we are reviewing this...

Hakataya Ramen (Brisbane, Australia)

Just writing up a small review for this place because it reminds me of the many ramen we tried on our last Japan vacation but even better, read more to find out why. When I travel to Brisbane I usually arrive in the evening and sometimes that poses an issue...
