Wellington- The Burbs And An Awful Lot Of Eating Out.

In the past week I have eaten out rather a lot. I am not going to make excuses because eating out is my happy place. I even didn’t take a photo at every meal, sorry. Sometimes I just don’t want to and I am too hungry or want to get the best bits before someone else!

Tumeric in Tawa

Last Saturday we went for one of our lunchtime curries in our fav northern suburb Indian lunchtime meal deal spots. Now this place is nothing flash but their food is excellent. I still uphold my claim that they have the best paneer around. My go-to dish is kadhai paneer and I love their potato and onion kulcha. They have a lunchtime deal and I think it is $12 for a curry, rice and naan.

Salty Pidgin

I came here during WOAP and have been trying to think of reasons to go back. As I was heading to the movies in Brooklyn, I had the perfect excuse. A friend and I shared the vegetarian pide, the famous crispy cauliflower, chili olives and the most amazing fries. It was a lovely feed and absolutely perfect for a chat and a catch-up.

If I was asked where I would like to go for dinner, without a doubt my answer would involve the Salty Pidgin. I love the place and the food is great.

The movie was a fundraiser and for pudding, we had homemade slices and a bag of lollies!

Khandallah Trading Company

 

This is our local and by joining their social club I got credit on my Goody App. Mr and Mr headed off to use this up. This place has had some strange menus in the past and now they seem to have gone back to do doing what they do best, great pub food.I really enjoy their burger and Mr loves their ribs. I think you can guess what we had.

The Eating Peeps gang got together to try the food at this pub. I have been for a beer before but not food. We had a voucher and it made the meal and a drink nice and cheap. One thing on the menu jumped out at me and I would go back to have it again, it was the cauliflower and hazelnut carbonara. It was absolutely delicious and as it had a vegetable in it, almost healthy. I would never make it at home as I would be the only one eating it.

Love this place, went for lunch with Miss Muffin. She had a bacon butty, I had the nachos and we shared the curly fries. It was fab, as always. If you haven’t been, you must. I can’t wait to go there with my parents when they visit at Christmas. I think we will go in the evening as you can book then.

So….. that was my eating week and it ended with this beautiful loaf being left on my doorstep.

Review Of The High Tea At The Bolton Hotel And A Metre Long Pizza Experience With Mediterranean Foods.

My latest High Tea Society Review At Bolton Hotel, Artisan Restaurant is up and it is a goody. I am currently trying to convince the family to go on holiday to Singapore so I can’t get myself a teapot. Postage from the website may be cheaper but Singapore has so much food to try and the Postie doesn’t.

Last weekend on Facebook I had some great news, I won the special Monday metre long pizza at Mediterranean Foods. Yes, 1 meter long. I was very good and shared with my family and friends. It was very impressive and very good. We got to choose 3 different pizzas to be featured. We had Italia, SicilIa and Chioggia. It fed 5 of us and for $55 I think that is pretty good. The novelty of the huge pizza was easily matched by the great taste. The restaurant and shop have been refurbished and look fantastic.

 

 

Yes, I have had a week that has been all about food. That is every week but this week has been extra foodie with the pizza above and a few changes at work. I started new hours at and this meant a whole hour for lunch. Working in the suburb I work in means I have plenty of choices for lunch. This week I had a very good Palak Paneer with naan bread ($9.50) at The Curry Pot  and Huarache Patria ($13 beef with green sauce) at Viva Mexico. Both were so very good and rather cheap.

Today I also had pancakes ($16) at the new cafe in Petone, Seashore Cabaret. They were the best pancakes I have had in the Wellington Region, the coffee was also good and I love the decor. I wasn’t expecting the place to please me, but it did.

If you are Tim my personal trainer, I would still give myself 7/10 for my diet. There was fruit and veg involved.
