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

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

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

On the hunt for decent takeaways – Little India – Merivale

Ah Indian food, I have missed you! This afternoon we took the doglets to visit some friends, so got takeaways from Little India in Merivale on the way home. I used my iPhone to check their online menu and phoned the order through.  We chose the Paneer Shimla Mirch (Home made Indian cottage cheese cooked with … Continue reading

On the hunt for decent takeaways – Hello Vietnam Restaurant – Riccarton

A freezing cold winter night, storms-a-comin’ … takeaways for dinner on the way back from a friend’s place.  We decided to try the fairly recently opened Hello Vietnam Restaurant in Riccarton.  If you know the area, its in the new group of shops on Riccarton Road near the corner of the Clyde Road intersection. A trap … Continue reading

On the hunt for decent takeaways – Green Leaf – Bishopdale

  We had important things to discuss, like holidays for 2016, so decided to get takeaways and have a chat over the meal. It was decided that we should get Indian and this time we picked Green Leaf in Bishopdale.  This is a firm favourite with my brother and my parents who used to regularly … Continue reading

On the hunt for decent takeaways – Five Stars Vietnamese Restaurant – Fendalton

It was my 31st birthday (again!  🙂 ) and my choice for takeaways.  I was tempted to go back to My Hanh but in the theme of trying the different options for takeaways in the area decided we should try Five Stars Vietnamese Restaurant in Fendalton.  We have been here before but again it was years … Continue reading

On the hunt for decent takeaways – My Hanh – Upper Riccarton

This time, cats to the vet for their annual jabs so takeaways it is.  Many years ago we were regulars to My Hanh, a Vietnamese restaurant in Upper Riccarton.  If you know the area, it’s just opposite the standalone Countdown in one of the alleys.  It’s actually just along from last weeks choice Spice’n’Life. Due … Continue reading

On the hunt for decent takeaways – Spice’n’life – Upper Riccarton

Ever optimistic after our fairly average curry last week, we decided to try the slightly dodgy looking Spice’n’Life in Upper Riccarton (Church Corner). I didn’t personally go, but by all accounts the decor isn’t all that, but on the bright side, the clientele is Indian – a good sign. And this is a good example … Continue reading

On the hunt for decent takeaways – Sai Touch of Spice – Coach Corner

Long story short, a trip to the vet during our usual meal time was a good excuse to get takeaways this week.  We had a loyalty card to redeem a free curry at Sai Touch of Spice at Coach Corner, so that sealed the deal.  Their menu is here. We got Aloo Gobi and Vegetable Khadai. … Continue reading

Working away from home and eating healthily

I think its a pretty common complaint for people who work away from home frequently, thats its really hard to eat healthily at times.  Restaurant meals can often be larger and richer than what you’d eat at home.  Not to mention eating out 3 times a day can be a little much to stomach (so … Continue reading

For the love of … leftovers

Leftovers have such a bad rap!  But let me just say, I LOVE leftovers for the following reasons – Budget friendly Environmentally friendly Time friendly There is IMO, nothing better than knowing I can come home after a long, busy, stressful day at work and simply reheat something cooked previously.  Or at the very least, have the base items ready … Continue reading
