In an almost unprecedented move, I’m kicking off this week with two major announcements!
- My collaboration with Luxe Recess (which is actually a much belated fact), featured here.
- City Baby Dining’s new dashboard featuring our Dining Aboard Reviews.
Really, both were organic and seamless developments that have been a long time coming. If you follow us on Instagram, either on Rockshic, Rockshic Eats, or City Baby Dining, you would have definitely witnessed all of the above. However, if Instagram is not your thing (and let’s face it, I can’t blame you, since I personally am still warming up to the idea of Snap Chat, I know I know… how technologically backward of me!), then this may be news for you and you might DELIGHTED to know about new developments of City Baby Dining abroad and Luxe Recess.
Nevertheless, what better way to kick-start both facets with an update from Windy Welly? I won’t lie, I still miss our beautiful abode – the dreamy penthouse on Evans Bay, and our idyllic lifestyle there. Sure we were both wretchedly tired and jetlagged, and munchkin was peaking in what could only be described as his “terrible two’s”… but now, looking back, and as the weather here in NYC is so gloomy and dreary, I can’t help but pine after our halcyon days back in Wellington.
Plus… the fabulous eats! I forget the actual trivia, but I believe that per capita Wellington has something like the highest density of restaurants per capita of any major city we know, and I can certainly attest to this fact. Every day it seemed like we were on the brink of a new discovery, and Zibibbo is just one of many such culinary delights that I am happy to fill you in about. A couple of highlights from the evening – pizza from their wood-fired oven with fresh basil and mozzarella (a fail-safe combo in my book), Wairarapa lamb with spiced aubergine, Sicilian caponata, salsa verde, and pinor noir jus (yum), and Waitoa chicken (butter pochae3d with roasted cauliflower, Riesling lyonnaise, cauliflower tahnini topped with fried herbs). Okay I must stop because I am on the cusp of midnight snacking and we all know where that leads us to.
For more baby-friendly info, you can check out the full feature here on City Baby Dining (under our new ✈ The Traveling Baby Diner section!). Until then… enjoy the pics and I promise to deliver better and more frequent updates of our culinary adventures on the road and overseas!!
