I’ve been having a little love affair with Wellington recently. A stark contrast to after i graduated from vic nine years ago and I couldn't wait to get on a plane. I came back after five years away thinking I’d probably move to Auckland... Because, you know, I’d had a taste of ‘big city life’ overseas and Wellington felt a little too dinky. i could remember walking down Cuba Street and knowing pretty much everyone and it was at a ratio of 5:3 - people you wanted to see and people you didn’t want to see. Although maybe that says more about me than it does this city!

You know that now infamous hummus story in the 'about us' section? Well, Ma Brash was ahead of the trend on something else too - Elderflower cordial. We would scour the back roads for the elusive white florets every spring and make litres of the stuff. Combine that with our sodastream and it was the perfect summer treat.

I feel like you can really judge a place by their fries. I mean it is essentially three ingredients - potato, oil and salt. Yet how is it that something so simple and so basic can be so different across the board. It levels the playing field - a local fish and chip shop can be right up there with a top restaurant.

Sushi is sort of the ‘it cuisine’ of the corporate lunch world. Popular places have people lining up around the corner for their healthy lunchtime fare. But I find it hard to take places seriously that have cream cheese in their sushi.

Over the years I've had a long-standing debate with a workmate OVER WHO HAS THE BEST MEE GORENG IN WELLINGTON.  With around 20 Asian/Malaysian restaurants in Wellington, most claiming to be some sort of dwelling of Satay (villages, palaces, even kingdoms of Satay), there is definitely room for argument.
