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!

On the hunt for decent takeaways – Chopsticks – Fendalton, Christchurch

Many years ago we lived in the suburb of Bryndwr and regularly visited Chopsticks a Chinese restaurant specialising in Chinese and Malaysian style food.

For a while now (years if I’m honest) we have been whining about the lack of takeaway options in the neighbourhood.  Our favourite fish’n’chip shop which used to do great vegetarian burgers closed  post quake as the building was demolished.   But for some reason we always seem to over look the Upper Riccarton shopping area, … Continue reading

Dunedin dining – week 6 – a bit of this, a bit of that

Monday night, I went back to Punjab Indian Restaurant.   Last time I visited back in week 2 didn’t thrill me.  It was ok, I gave it 3/5. I decided to grab takeaways on my way back to my unit as I was lugging my suitcase and a full backpack, so wanted to pick something along my … Continue reading

For the next 6 weeks I’m going to be visiting Dunedin for work. Last time, I dined on Indian each night and blogged about it here and here. So next week I’m leaving my dining choices up to you – which type of cuisine should I choose?  I’ll eat the same type of cuisine each … Continue reading
