I’m due for a trip to Wellington next weekend and planning on where to eat has always been huge on my trip itinerary.
Here are some of the places that I intend to visit:
The last time I was in Wellington, I missed out on dining at Matterhorn because we didn’t manage to get a table (I made the mistake of going two hours before my flight). So this time, Matterhorn is my top priority and I plan to make a stop at this popular eatery as soon as I land in Wellington.
Planning to try: Venison tartare | Chocolate and hazelnut tart
I love crabs. One of my favourite childhood past time is sitting around a table with my family while we devoured fleshly steamed crabs and fighting for the crab claws. So when I found out via Bunny. Eats. Design that there is a restaurant that specialises in seafood with an emphasis on crabs in Wellington, there was no way that I’m gonna miss out.
Planning to try: Chili crab linguine w clams and roasted peppers | 1kg of Nelson Paddle crab with chili garlic butter
Opened by L’affare’s founder Jeff Kennedy and partner Bridget Dunn, Prefab, their new fabulous cafe/roastery is a top-notch addition to the cafe scene in Wellington.
Planning to try: Bottomless filter coffee | Mexican pork jumping beans on toast (?!)
The place to satisfy your sweet tooth with a yummy dessert over a delicious glass of fancy cocktail. This lounge bar/reading room offers live music and is a popular spot for a great night out.
Planning to try: Textures of Pina Colada | Dancing Shoes
To further fuel my need for a good cup of Joe, I was told to stop by Fidel’s Cafe for a strong Havana coffee and some of their delicious treats in the cabinet.
Planning to try: Short macchaito | something savoury
