Vegetarian Surfers Paradise Dining – Zambrero

  There are a couple of chains around the Gold Coast that do Mexican style food, of these, my pick is Zambrero.  No only is the food delicious but for every meal you buy, someone in need also gets a meal – its a win-win.  The sign in the store on Wednesday when I went, … Continue reading

Vegetarian Surfers Paradise Dining – Poké California

I was looking forward to sharing about a great little hidden gem in Surfers Paradise called Poké California, which opened in the Circle on Cavill mall a few months ago.  I guess I missed the boat though, when I went on Thursday it was busy! It’s still physically not in the best spot, near the Woolworths … Continue reading

Vegetarian Surfers Paradise Dining – PappaRich

For around the last 18 months I have been working in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast.  I thought it might be fun to share a few of the more inexpensive vegetarian dining options that I pick for a quick, casual lunch. First up, one of my favourites and a fairly recent addition to the … Continue reading

Oh the disappointment…

Since moving to Australia we have been enjoying the array of fresh fruits and vegetables at our local produce shops.  In New Zealand, the produce at our local Green Grocers did tend to be more seasonal. Occasionally we stumble upon some little gem that we haven’t seen or tried before and I’m always tempted.  Today … Continue reading

An atheist Christmas feast

Although we don’t celebrate Christmas, we did celebrate being on a work expense account.  Dear work, thank you for paying for this most of this delicious food while we are on call in Queenstown for the week 😉 From left to right, top to bottom – Fresh homegrown cherries which are one of the quintessential Christmas … Continue reading

This past week in photos – Central Otago road trip – New Zealand

This week I was lucky enough to be sent to Queenstown for work.  I love this part of New Zealand, its beautiful and if it wasn’t for the brutal winters, I’d live there in a heartbeat. Dinner on Monday was at one of my old favs… Tham Nak Thai and again, it didn’t disappoint.  My coke … Continue reading

On the hunt for decent food – Burger King – Kissimmee, Florida

Oh boy! Was I excited to get to go to Burger King and order their Veggie Burger.  The thrill of being able to go to a fast food joint and order straight off the menu – woo hoo! So a Veggie Burger combo including fries and a drink it was.    Cost around $US6. The patty … Continue reading

On the hunt for decent food – Taco Bell – Kissimmee, Florida

There are two things I miss as a vegetarian, one is having a choice on a regular restaurant menu “the vegetarian option”…  its not an option if there is only one thing to pick.  The second is being able to get fast food.  While I like to eat healthily most of the time, some days … Continue reading

On the hunt for decent food – Cici’s Pizza – Kissimmee, Florida

Another place we dined while at Walt Disney World in Florida was Cici’s Pizza. There are a number of these scattered around the area and we went to one in Kissimmee on 192. They do takeaway pizza’s and also a dine in buffet.  We did the buffet.  First up, pricing – adults $6.99 and I … Continue reading

On the hunt for decent food – Sweet Tomatoes – Kissimmee, Florida

One of our favourite places to eat when we are in the USA is Sweet Tomatoes, also known in some states as Souplantation.  We have found Sweet Tomatoes in both California and Florida, and often its our “go to” restaurant of choice as vegetarians.  We have rarely been impressed by vegetarian offerings in other restaurants … Continue reading

On the hunt for decent takeaways – Staveley Fish Supply & Hamburger Bar

There are two phone numbers I remember from my childhood – my parents number and the number for the Staveley Fish Supply & Hamburger Bar … 342 7468. As a child, this was always our favourite place to get takeaways, the burgers were amazing! Fast forward a few years and the place has changed owners … Continue reading

Streetcars of San Francisco

I can’t see the appeal with the cable cars in San Francisco, but I love these heritage streetcars that run around the city. Compared with the super crowded cable cars, on these streetcars you can often find a seat and the price can’t be beat at only $US2.25 for an adult to ride.  In comparison, … Continue reading

Pretentious food … or who gobbed on my meal?

I don’t get this whole “foam” food thing.  I’m not a fussy eater.  Heck, I’ll try anything that doesn’t have a deceased animal in it.  But when this dish showed up in front of me on our trip to San Francisco last month, it did take me back a second. On the menu, this was listed … Continue reading

Angel Island State Park – San Francisco, USA

On a previous trip to San Francisco I took a trip to Alcatraz.  This time, as part of our organised Adventures by Disney trip we got the opportunity to go to Angel Island.  The entire island is part of the California State Park system and access is via boat or ferry. I confess I didn’t know … Continue reading

M.Y.China – San Francisco, USA

One of our first group meals on our Adventures by Disney trip in San Francisco was at M.Y. China.  When they told us this restaurant was in the Westfield Mall, I instantly thought foodcourt.  I couldn’t have been more wrong! This is a fairly elegant restaurant on one of the upper floors of the Westfield … Continue reading
