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…

KALBI

I’m a huge fan of Korean food when it’s done right. My favourite dish of 2016 was a sublime vegetable pancake from Munchies Street Food and previous to that I raved about a little food van doing great things called Seoul Street. Unfortunately Hobart has had little luck when it comes to Korean restaurants with a number shutting…

Pizza Traders

The rejuvenation of ‘Midtown’ continues and the aroma of wood fired pizza has now joined this bustling neighbourhood. I have been on a carb vacation.

Their latest creations are a pair…

Mountain Pepper Rosti

While best known for their delicious organic wood fired pizzas the new team at Mountain Pepper have been branching out into other tasty delights such as bone broths and soups. Today saw the launch of a new range of rosti with plenty to please everyone. Being close enough to breakfast time I had to choose…

Los Pollos Hermanos @ The Standard

Is it a pretty burger? Most certainly not, but what it lacks in looks it makes up for with an abundance of character! It’s all big strong flavours that still really work in unison: Juicy and crispy fried chicken thigh, crispy bacon, onion jam, blue cheese and hot sauces, more cheese and some delightful pickles…
