So back in April, I was invited by Sacred Hill Wines at Dans Le Noir? to have dinner in the dark. I know it’s been a while but I couldn’t talk about it straight away until the menu changed in May. I really wanted to share my experience and in case you were wondering what it’s like to taste food without your vision. If you’re curious, continue down below.
This month’s NZBloggers brunchclub location was at Marua Road Cafe in the weekend. It was a gloomy rainy day but I’m glad I went because we had a good group of ladies and great discussions.
So two weekends ago, I had a last minute trip to Hamilton. I wasn’t planning on going at all but I realised I didn’t want to miss out so I joined a few lovely blogging gals for a quick day trip. We went there for brunch which I already posted about so this post will have everything else we got up to during the day and the cool things I saw while we were there.
So every month, a bunch of NZ bloggers have brunch together for a monthly brunch club. I’ve been to so many of them and it’s a great way to meet other bloggers, make new friends and try new food places. It’s mainly in Auckland but April’s brunchclub location was at Two Birds Eatery in Hamilton.
Last month’s brunchclub was at The Lula Inn located in the waterfront, beside the Auckland Maritime Museum. I’ve never been to this restaurant before so I was quite excited to try their Bottomless Brunch with some awesome blogging gals. Food plus cocktails on a Sunday? YES PLEASE.
The food scene in Auckland is so exciting. There are so many new food places now and my list of places to go to keeps growing. The latest addition to the scene is UMU Pizza. If you love a good pizza, this is a place to check out. I’ve been twice and have tried 6 out of the 8 pizzas they have on offer so if you want to know my thoughts and more info about this place, continue down below.
When the invitation to have breakfast at The Sugar Club landed in my inbox, I basically wanted to say yes straight away. I’ve been to The Sugar Club once and I know it’s such a great place to dine. I knew the event had something to do with coffee but I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in last week that it’s for the launch of L’OR Espresso.
So last Friday, I was lucky enough to be invited to Krispy Kreme’s VIP launch event. I was part of the first group that was able to check out the first New Zealand store, try out their drinks, doughnuts and get a behind the scenes sneak peak. The store opens to the public this morning at 8am so if you want to know what to expect, continue down below.
I feel quite lucky that I’m spoilt for choice for places to eat in my neighbourhood. The latest exciting place that opened in Takapuna is Nanam Eatery. Nanam is not your traditional Filipino restaurant and that’s what intrigued me and my family so we decided to finally check it out.
Last weekend, I headed over to Avondale for the monthly NZ Bloggers Brunchclub at Rosebank Coffee & Kitchen. I’ve never been there but I’ve heard great things so I was pretty excited. My friend Lena of Lena Talks Beauty also organised it. I love trying new food places so I’m glad to have this place ticked off my long list.
