Aussie Life | Tuggy Tucks In

Well it’s been 7 weeks since we arrived in the land of Oz and boy have we done a lot in that time. We moved into our fully-furnished flat on 5th September and have been living here for just over a month now! The block of flats is 15 floors (we live on floor 7) with a roof terrace, gym and swimming pool and our windows open right up to give a balcony effect and you can see the top of the Story bridge (above) in the distance.

Bunker Coffee | Tuggy Tucks In

Bunker Coffee

I love a bit of history with my coffee, that’s why when I heard about Bunker Coffee on Brisbane Broadsheet, I just had to come and check it out! It’s a popular place with a lot of coffee competition around, but in the half an hour that I sat there, it was visited by office workers, families and passers by.

A selection of food consumed – Thai fish cakes, dauphinoise, pan-seared beef fillet & haggis bon bons

I’d seen and heard about Rollo in Stockbridge but when I heard they were opening up a second restaurant on Broughton street, closer to the centre of town I was excited to try it. Continue reading

Fork & Field | Tuggy Tucks InĀ 

I’d been wanting to go to Fork & Field for a wee while now since hearing of a big refurb of the old Torphican Inn in my boyfriend’s native Mid Calder.

Owned by the same owners of quirky gin bar The Jolly Botanist on Morrison street right by Haymarket train station in Edinburgh, I had the feeling I’d be in for good things.
