Fat Dog Bar & Cafe @ Rotorua, New Zealand

BY Cecilia Qianqian IN , , No comments

At my own thought, the best dessert is made from the kitchen instead ready-made display in cabinet. I am very happy that I could enjoy very good desert in New Zealand before I was leaving.

I was taken few minutes to research which is the best cafe and have good review in Rotorua. It was surprising me when Fat Dog this name come out at first in the Google and it was really crowded enough when I step in their cafe.

The cafe is colourful to bring out their fat dog theme. They are not only serving as cafe, but also as bar at night. They been won a winner as The Catering Company in 2016 as well as other awards.

All the menu and price are clearly stated in the black board hang on top. Everything you have to order and pay it at counter, and they will serve you accordingly.
The desserts is the only words I can see in their cafe. They have 6 desserts to choose and the price all is NZ$13.90, except for Death by Chocolate cost at NZ$18.40.

Hot Chocolate Pudding Cake NZ$13.90

The chocolate brownie serves with Vanilla Ice Cream and berry coulis on top, dip with chocolate sauce at all. This is a good picks for sweet tooth. The brownie is cooked in hot, always perfect match with ice cream. The sweetness is good enough when comes with berry.

Flat White NZ$4.10
Coffee is a must when having a dessert. The coffee is good to make my taste balance while having sweet tooth at this time.

If you are travelling around Rotorua, may think about to visit here save a cup of coffee and try out their awesome menu. It is nearby Rotorua i-site and easy to reach by short walking distance.

Replete Café & Store @ Taupo, New Zealand

BY Cecilia Qianqian IN , , No comments

Since I had full dinner last night, so I randomly order a bagel as my breakfast today makes my stomach have enough space to breathe.

Walked into the cafe, the cabinet has been filled of foods in large cabinet. Of course you still can choose the fresh ingredients from kitchen. I really stand here for some time because I do not know what I have to until I found bagel.

I visit their cafe after half an hour after they are open door, but it almost full from indoor to outdoor. Lastly I choose to sit on the window bar with beautiful sunlight to start my day. As usual, long black is my coffee of the day.

This bagel was named the BEST UGLY BAGEL. Regardless of appearance or inner has not much decoration, casually rub a shape as long as the surface looks like circle.

Come with thick cream cheese and broken salmon piece inside, without such beautiful display like other cafe does. Just like there are in it then fine.
Anyway, those foods will come into the stomach, who cares how it looks like right? As long as it was delicate!

The next door of the cafe is a store full with kitchenware and food products like utensils, cooking stuff, cooking oil, sauces, tea, coffee maker, as well as home decor products. You may have a look around after finish your meal and may found something interesting here.

How I wish I can take them at home. :(
This is an interesting place with good variety of foods and drinks. Service was good and efficient. Drop by if  you are visiting Taupo and I'm sure their food and coffee will delight your day.

Having rain for whole day from yesterday until this morning. Feel badly I couldn't finish my Tangoriro trail and have to stay in a backpacker without somebody accidentally. Thanks for so much information provided from the backpacker website I stayed last night. At last, I picked to visit this café in this lazy morning.

The café actually is the work room from the oldest Tackle Shop in New Zealand; you don't even realize there is a small café inside the shop. Hundreds of fishing files have been tied in this room; lot of fly rods have been crafted. All these are owned by Mr Joe Frost, also a fishing guide to many dignitaries the world over.

Produce on the window sill and shelve printed on acrylic for sale. All of these are taken by aerial photographs of the Tongariro River.

They do sell homemade products like jams, chocolate, teas and coffee.

I fall in love with their coffee. Surprisingly coffee here own nice fragrant with medium taste. And this places have make me feel comfortable when sitting inside, I could enjoy my tasting slowly with listening lively music in this beautiful morning.

I have a breakfast of today, which come with two poached eggs, roasted ciabatta and bacon.
The bacon was super nice! Combining crispy with soft texture and I wondering how they can make the bacon with like this. I have no idea on it and never get enough for this. I also have an experience buy some bacon to home and fry it, but the result is not what I wish. Hmmm, gonna explore of it again. As well as the ciabatta bread. 

Lot of goods in the tackle shop such as warm socks, foot warmers, beanies, caps and hats, thermal under garment as well as everything that fly fisher need. They are ready to help you with fishing tackle, a license or a fishing report great.
