Our road trip turned into somewhat of a burger-fest, well for me a least – if a place we went to had a gluten free burger as an option on their menu, I needed to have it. One of the places we went to while in Queenstown, was a place called Devil Burger… Continue reading →
During our South Island road trip, we spent a couple of nights in Christchurch. One of the things I had wanted to do while we were in Christchurch was check out C1 Espresso on HIgh Street in the CBD.
I’m not gonna lie, the only reason I wanted to go C1 was because I had heard about their sliders, and how they come to your table via pneumatic tube (what can I say, I’m a sucker for things that). Continue reading →
Travelling with dietary requirements can be a pain in the ass, even finding places you can eat before you get there can be a huge fucking mission sometimes. For our trip to Dunedin, I started looking for possible places we could eat about a few weeks in advance, and it wasn’t looking promising.

We landed in Dunedin a bit after lunch and decided to go for a walk to see if we could find a place that had something gluten-free on the menu (turns out a lot of places actually, I was surprised); one of the places we found was a café called Modaks Espresso. Continue reading →

For dinner last night, Phillip and I had Fish and Chips; we had been meaning to go to The Chippery in Thorndon for a while, but never got around to it (I work a few blocks away and was going to shout us dinner on Friday night after work, but ended up getting sick and spending most of the week in bed, I was pretty gutted).
So, after cleaning the house, we put an online order through to the Thorndon store, and then headed to New World to do some grocery shopping before picking collecting our order (you can choose the time you want to collect your order, so we weren’t rushing around; we were about 10 minutes early).
