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. The battle of the bao has been brewing for some time and now to decide whose cuisine reigns supreme! Ja & Jon Their banh mi are mighty fine so I was excited…

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….

Falls Festival Foods : Marion Bay 2018

Once again we returned to Marion Bay to see in the new year with thousands of our closest friends. Some new vendors were on site to feed these masses while previous favourites were sadly missing, including the very popular Munchies Street Food. Here’s some snapshots of what was sampled.     Falls Festival Website Falls Festival…

Kraken Fish and Chips

It seemed at first quite an odd step for Chef Toby Cannon to be making the switch from fine dining to opening his own fish ‘n’ chippery, but he’s brought the same elements of quality and freshness to reinvigorate one of the countries favourite meals. It’s a cosy little space, for years known as The…
