    • Small Team, Big Impact
      • 2 Apr 2020
      • St Vincent de Paul Society Wellington
      • <a class="image-slide-anchor content-fill" > <a class="image-slide-anchor content-fill" > St Vincent de Paul Society Wellington (Vinnies) has adapted its welfare and support services to provide essential service packs to individuals and families struggling throughout the COVID-19 Level 4 lock-down. “We’re ensuring our community has access to essential items which we hope will help give them some peace of mind over this uncertain time, as well as help free-up any extra cash to go towards additional food and bills” says Manager, John Rossbotham. These packs cover three key needs: food support, baby material support and winter goods such as warm clothing, bedding, heating and cookware. A small team of six key staff, including two delivery drivers are continuing to work from the Newtown Welfare and Service Hub to answer incoming calls and distribute packs. “Often people are simply relieved you have answered their call as they struggle to get through to overwhelmed government support lines” says Communications and Marketing Manager, Millie Lambess. “For many single parents and people living on their own, there is comfort in knowing they aren’t alone and have the support of a service like Vinnies throughout the lock-down.” Alongside this practical support, the Vinnies Community Social Worker is continuing to work closely with on-going cases and Vinnies Members are calling isolated elderly to check-in with them each week. “I am concerned at the impact of social isolation and stress on those already experiencing life challenges, including sole parents, those living alone or struggling with mental health. Once people are assured they have support for basic needs, they are verbalising anxiety around their safety, or their family’s safety. Emotional and psychological support is going to be very important the longer this lock down continues, and ability to provide personal human connection will be a priority” says Community Social Worker, Tania Martin. Since the lock-down began, the Newtown centre has seen a 380% increase in people accessing its services, with the majority in need of food. Bulk orders of food and essential items are being purchased on a weekly basis by the Society with fresh produce continuing to come in from Kaibosh and local restaurants such as Where’s Charlie? who donated fresh produce after they closed. With the closure of the main funding source, Vinnies Op Shops and unable to accept drop-off food donations from the public,St Vincent de Paul Society Wellington is calling on the wider community to consider making a cash donation towards the purchase of food bank supplies. Donations can be made vinnies-wellington.org.nz/donate.

    • In Which Philip Eats Alone at Logan Brown
      • 3 May 2015
      • Salient
      • Conventional wisdom has it that New Zealand’s two largest cities have distinct Australian correspondents. There is at least one way in which Wellington doesn’t sync up, however, and that is when it comes to food. It’s not that our food isn’t great, but Melbourne has the “foodie capital” allure. We have a variety of cheap, mostly unpleasant Malaysian BYOs. Sure, we tried valiantly to rep our eatery steez with “Wellington on a Plate”, but when a university cafe qualifies as an entry you know something’s amiss.

    • Restaurant Review: The Bresolin, Willis St
      • 27 Apr 2015
      • Salient
      • I had high hopes for this place after checking the menu out online. It seemed like a mid-to-high-end sort of establishment, offering a range of steaks on the Lunch/Dinner menu that were priced anywhere up to $70. I mean, you sort of start to take a restaurant seriously once they can justify charging you that much for a piece of meat and then expect you to buy sides on top of that.

    • Bresolin Brothers
      • 17 Aug 2014
      • Last week, Duncan and Cam sat down with a couple of young kings of the Wellington food scene. The Bresolin brothers, Leonardo and Lorenzo, are the owners of Scopa, Duke Carvell’s, Tommy Millions, Crazy Horse Steak House and Gentlemen’s Beans Coffee. Their dad ran the iconic Wellington restaurant Il Casino, and ever since, they have been driven to bring amazing food to Wellingtonians. The brothers became NZ celebs after they judged The Great Food Race on TV earlier this year. They are currently working on a new place called The Bresolin.

    • Pod on legs
      • 3 Apr 2012
      • Eye of the Fish
      • Hooray. For the first time for absolutely ages, something innovative is happening in Taranaki St. Yes, right down the bottom of ‘Naki, opposite Zibbibo, and smack bang in front of the former sleazy strip club on top of Brandon Motors, a “Pod” has arisen on four shaky legs, and stands over us. When it was [...]

    • Rasa Malaysia – top eats near the top’o Cuba
      • 18 Oct 2011
      • The Wellingtonista
      • Over the past couple of months I have been reviewing Malaysian restaurants all around Wellington for Malaysia Kitchen (full disclosure – I got refunded some of the costs). It’s time to share the reviews! A freezing southerly was blowing around Wellington when I met with a group of friends at Rasa Malaysia on Upper Cuba Street, pushing all thoughts of trying something new out of my mind. The weather meant I had to have my favourite laksa.

    • The power of Voodoo (who do?)

      • The Wellingtonista
      • When we talked about the Rapture, we mentioned Voodoo Restaurant on Manners Street in brief, but that really wasn’t enough. Seeing it’s got the Grabone treatment today (hurry! Only three hours left!), we do need to tell you just how damn delicious Voodoo is.

    • Debunking the Target urban myth
      • 28 Sep 2010
      • The Wellingtonista
      • For the past couple of years, we keep hearing people tell us not to go to a certain ethnic restaurant because “they were filmed by Target scraping leftover food back into the food to sell” and various other stories along the same lines.
