Food Reviews


A new Japanese eatery in Wellington, Origami offers a huge 90-dish range that isn’t particularly authentic but is still definitely worth trying. Super cheap with generous portions – try the spicy tom yum ramen and fresh seared tuna.

Cuba Street Biscuits

My walk to university each morning takes me through Lambton Quay, Willis street, Manners Street and Cuba Street, the trunk line of Wellington. Lambton Quay at 8am is full of dark suits and high heels clipping on the brick paving.  1,087 more words


To celebrate and to eat

For a rather special birthday, my family dined at Arbitrageur Restaurant and Wine room last night.

The atmosphere was casual but still quiet and refined; other diners, men watching the rugby and couples drinking Champagne at the bar. 333 more words

Vegging at Hintonburger

I have no idea what took so long, reviews, suggestions, constant drive-by’s and our car finally turned into the Hintonburger parking lot.

So besides the old school, chip truck-diner atmosphere there are a lot of things that are just so appealing about the place the staff, the price, the parking, sourcing local, I could go on forever. 195 more words
