Kazu Japanese Restaurant | Wellington CBD

Our obsession with Japanese food is a well-known fact among our friends, so it’s not surprising that I’m writing a post about another Japanese restaurant. S and I love eating at Kazu Japanese Restaurant not only because their food’s consistently enjoyable, but also because their staff are some of the loveliest people we’ve interacted with. Service here is always A+! Don’t mistake this one for the Kazu Yakitori Bar along Courtenay. They’re under the same company, but we much prefer the vibes at this one along Tory Street.

Sushi and Sashimi. Always starting our meal with the best way possible! The sashimi plate with its slices of fresh tuna, snapper and salmon is our go-to. It’s honestly a bit on the expensive side, but we don’t mind paying a little more for quality. We’ve also tried their salmon nigiri and California rolls on two different occasions; both were equally superb.

Chow | Wellington CBD

Living in a place that’s filled with so many dining establishments has its perks. We continue to discover new places and get to try them one by one. It does get challenging when we can’t decide which dishes to try though! Luckily, S and I joined some of our friends for lunch on a random weekday to avail of Chow‘s $25 lunch deal, where you get to choose two dishes, your preferred type of rice and a drink. It was a great way to sample some of the things Chow has to offer. It’s worth every penny too, with the serving sizes being so generous!

I chose to have the Jungle Curry and some Pumpkin and Cashew Fritters, along with a glass of their Peach Iced Tea. I found the drink to be watered down a little too much, so I definitely wasn’t a fan of that. The curry, though, was delicious!

Fisherman’s Plate | Wellington CBD

It’s been gloomy and gray here in Wellington for a few days now, and it’s times like these when we have a hankering for some good noodle soup. Thankfully there’s a couple of places which serve great pho within the city. One of our favorite places to go to is Fisherman’s Plate, a small restaurant tucked away in a side street that’s easy to miss. Don’t be fooled, though. This place may be nondescript, but their food is anything but.

Southern Cross Garden Bar Restaurant | Wellington CBD

I can’t believe it’s already February! I know everyone else says it, but it really did feel like January just whooshed past us so quickly. A friend of ours will be leaving for a 2-week trip to Mexico mid-February as part of her company’s recognition program and we had a little dinner to celebrate her success. We headed to Southern Cross Garden Bar, which wasn’t too far away from where we all lived. The inside of the place was absolutely gorgeous; so spacious and way bigger than what it looked like from the outside.
