Dark Mofo : The Foodie Fringe

While the cuisine capital of the festival is undoubtedly the fantastic Dark Mofo and City of Hobart Winter Feast there’s a lot more to check out with many local businesses and visiting chefs joining in and presenting even more reasons to brave the cold. Whether you’re in town for the week or a local looking for something…

Collaborations : Dark Mofo and City of Hobart Winter Feast

During the coldest month each year a great feast is held to draw the people from their homes, to celebrate the season with fire and dancing. Thousands gather around the flames to reunite or make new friends with an array of beverages in hands. Teams of chefs from throughout the country work over coals hauling…

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…

Foods and Stuffs Vol 18

Tickets are $200 for a set menu with matched wines presented by David Moyle and Lilly Trewartha. Richard and Julian Hensens, formerly of The Republic Bar, are opening Bar Wa Izakaya just down the…

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…
