I like bukakke

Went to this Japanese restaurant called Tatsushi the other day. (What – did you think this post was about something else?) I got the bukkake udon. Partly because they sold out of the oyako donburi, but mostly because I’m immature and it made me snigger. “Can I have the bukkake udon please?” I asked. I…

Restaurant Review: Bordeaux Bakery

I can’t say I’ve been that impressed by Bordeaux yet. We’ve only been when I have an Entertainment Book voucher to use up. Good thing because their prices are pretty high – $8.20 for a cheese/ham/tomato croissant!? I guess you shouldn’t expect normal bakery prices because they also trade as a cafe, but still, I…

Restaurant Review: Zico

Well, well, well. Unfortunately, my only experience at Zico last week was nothing to rave about. We were a large group of ten, out for a birthday dinner on St Patrick’s Day, and the waiters were new or just clueless, so perhaps those factors have to be taken into account for the less than satisfactory…

Restaurant Review: Satay India

As the name implies, Satay India do both Malaysian and Indian cuisine. However, sometimes they will only offer one of those (I think it depends on which chef is on that night). Satay India, located on Allen Street in Wellington city, often does two for one deals during the week – as long as you…

Restaurant Review: Matterhorn

Two words – small and pricey. We went to the Matterhorn a couple weeks ago with the hubby’s brother and his then-pregnant wife (who had her baby the day after me). The brother-in-law heard good things so we were keen to give it a go. The meals were tasty, but boy they were the smallest…

Restaurant Review: Good World

The Good World Chinese restaurant in Lower Hutt doesn’t do yum char so well. We went on a Saturday at 12:15pm. Should have been a busy time, and it did look fairly populated. Unfortunately the same food kept cycling around and we only got one dish of steamed dumplings in the first 3/4 of the…

Restaurant Review: Café Pica

*Sigh!* There was nothing about this café located in the Porirua MegaCentre that made me enjoy my first, and definitely my only, visit. All the doors were left open and you could see the cold wintery breeze pushing dustballs across the icy floors. It was uncomfortable despite being a few feet from the fire place.…

Restaurant Review: Hong Kong BBQ

This is the place on Kent Terrace that has barbecued meat hanging in the front window – ducks, chicken, ribs and roasted pork. I’ve been to HK BBQ several times now, mainly for a quick cheap dinner or lunch. They also do bubble tea. Heard of bubble tea? If not, it’s flavoured tea (hot or…

Restaurant Review: Arashi

After taking advantage of two for one cocktails at Chow, we decided that food was much required and Japanese sounded delicious. Arashi is a quaint little Japanese restaurant on Courtenay Place, Wellington. It’s an unpretentious place – plain wooden tables and chairs, no table cloths, disposable chopsticks. You can also opt to sit on the…
