Wakefield Market

Wakefield MarketLaura: When I first came to NZ, many years ago, my parents’ friends brought me to this food hall market. From the outside the market looks old and a bit run down. There was only a small sign of the place which indicated that they sell food in there, unlike now, where they have a big sign saying ethnic food stalls. When you enter the place, you can smell food, glorious food!! well Asian food mostly…The smell that will stick on you if you stay for a bit too long, and that’s one thing I kinda dislike about this place. I smell like food every time I eat there, but this doesn’t stop me from going, the food they sell is good!

R&S Satay Noodle House

combination-fried-noodle.JPGLaura: I’m starting to think Peter can read minds, mine especially! So freaky…On Sunday, we were thinking on what to have for dinner, we had some places in mind but we couldn’t find a place to park around Courtenay Place. So we tried to think about other places to go to, somewhere that’s not in Courtenay Place. I thought about R&S but I remembered Peter told me that he went there once a while ago and he wasn’t pleased with the food, so I didn’t suggest it. About one minute later, Peter said “hey, why don’t we just go to R&S?”. How freaky was that? The other time was when we went to Oaks. I thought about it first, but I kinda thought nah maybe somewhere closer to Courtenay Place, then Peter suggested it!

Oaks Satay Noodle House

Beef and meatball noodle soupPeter: Laura and I needed a quick bite to eat before heading out dancing and so we agreed on going to an old favourite, Oaks Satay Noodle House, at the corner of Cuba Mall and Manners Mall. You’ll need to go upstairs to find it, but it’s worth it for a great selection of food at very reasonable prices!

Bistro Breton for Valentine’s Day

Berry and Icecream Crepe

Peter: For Valentine’s day I decided to surprise Laura and take her to a great French restaurant I heard of, Bistro Breton in Kelburn. I had been assured by a workmate that the place was a very romantic location for a couple such as ourselves, and that the food was excellent, combining rustic Bretonian French dishes with great presentation and taste.

KK Malaysian – Best Mee Goreng!

mee-goreng.JPGPeter: I love KK Malaysian. Years ago when I was in Wellington studying, around 1999-2000 I discovered the place for the first time. It’s hidden away just off Cuba Street and is small inside. If you plan to eat in, be prepared to wait five or ten minutes for a table. But the wait is worth it! KK has simply the best Mee Goreng in Wellington.
