Marigold Cafe and Restaurant

The North Hobart strip of eateries is forever changing. Legends have held residencies there including Mit Zitrone, Ali Akbar, Lickerish, and Solicit. Alongside has been some long running favourites such as Renown Milkbar, Annapurna, Amigos, and Marti Zuccos. Has this charming newcomer got what it takes to make a mark? What hits me at first…

Two Peck Crispy Chicken – Hobart

I suspect the reason you don’t see more people raving about Two Peck on social media is simply because it’s not overly photogenic. I laboriously tried to capture the beauty of many dishes without luck, before giving in and devouring. It’s a tough gig. Two Peck Crispy Chicken originated in Taiwan and proudly boasts that…

Billy’s Burgers and Bar

My first taste was in February and then it was a long wait until I could return to make sure of the answer to the question : Are the burgers better at Billy’s? If you’ve encountered Shred Burgers at festivals over the years you’ve had a taste of what has grown up to become Billy’s….

Bao Battle – Hobart’s best

Soft, pillow like rolls filled with exquisite savoury ingredients, these are some of my favourite things and they’re popping up all over Hobart.

Rude Boy – Fried Chicken Relaunch!

It had been a while since I visited Rude Boy so I jumped at the chance to get a sneak peak at their new menu and say hello to the relaunched Rude Boy Fried Chicken and Cocktails. The space and the vibe remain the same, funky music pumps in the background, it’s casual and fun….

Mirmire Nepali Taste

What makes this casual Nepalese restaurant one of my favourite places to eat in Hobart? Pull up a chair and I’ll explain. It’s perhaps not the ambiance. Downstairs is somewhat cafeteria in style and I can imagine off-putting to some as a first impression, but never judge a book and all that. Music is pleasant…

The Brunswick Hotel

It’s a venue that has gone through a lot of changes over the years. What was once a rather uninspiring pub has been renovated to become a mecca for the inner city crowd. We were invited as guests to sample what they were up to now. I’d been in before. It has served in the…

The Tasmanian Bao Fiasco

I love new finds.  When you discover a place for the first time you’re going in blind and essentially giving them your trust. Sometimes this pays off with wonderful new experiences that cause one to rush home and tell the world. Other times…. The sign held promise, I’m a big fan of a good bao….
