Babyccino Battle! Round 1

Wherein the worlds smallest food critic and her sidekick father seek to find Hobart’s best babyccino. Picnic Cafe $1.50 Being hidden away down a laneway off Liverpool Street I’m guilty myself of overlooking this cafe at times but they do some great food and coffee here. The babyccino was a cup of chocolate laced foam with…

Komatsu Japanese

It’s an odd place to find a restaurant. Situated right at the start of the Southern Outlet it’s easily missed but the locals assured me it was fantastic so a visit or two were in order. An old weatherboard house is adorned with paper lanterns and hand written signage promising cheap takeaways. It’s not a…

Tom McHugo’s

Chef Tom Westcott has an impressive resume. I first developed a crush on his food when he was heading the kitchen at Westend Pumphouse before leaving at the end of 2015 but his mark has also been made on many of my other favourites including Garagistes, Franklin and MONA. Upon hearing he’d taken up residency at a…

MoMa – MONA Market

Held for only a couple of months each year the MONA Market (MoMa) is a great day out on the lawns with art, entertainment, fashion, and of course fabulous food and drinks. All done a little differently as is the MONA way. There’s a great variety of food to enjoy although it’s a little disappointing…

MONAte

It was Hobart’s best kept secret and the gamblers most ambitious bet to date. A cavernous multi-floored restaurant built in the heart of the CBD without a whisper of anyone noticing, works undertaken at night and behind boarded up windows. The old Mercury building has been transformed into perhaps the most exciting dining venue in…

Rude Boy

Boasting a wall of rum, cocktails on tap, and some mighty fine food, there’s a lot to like about Rude Boy. After months of rumours, the transformation of a rug shop into a Jamaican bar was swift and effective. The former showroom houses the bar and kitchen while storerooms out the back have been converted…
