Urban Greek

Urban Greek | Hobart

Food from TasmaniaGreek

The team at Urban Greek set out wanting to provide the city of Hobart with a new perspective on Greek cuisine; a combination of quality local produce with time-tested family recipes from Crete. Not only have they achieved this, but they have opened our eyes to the fact that not all Greek food is the same! Who knew that Crete was the supplier of the worlds finest and lowest acidity olive oil? Who had ever heard of such a strange dessert as mastic gelato? Certainly not me! Urban Greek provided us with excellent service, a convivial and relaxing atmosphere, and fantastic food with a difference. You don't need an adventurous palate to enjoy this style of food, and for those who care, the serving sizes are truly epic! We encourage you all to experience the hospitality of the Kakkos family and see for yourself what all the hype is about.

Burger Challenge at Jack Greene | Hobart

Burger ChallengeBurgersFood from Tasmania

Would you like a burger with that testosterone? It's a great venue with a distinctly hipster vibe, but that's not such burden when it can also cure male-pattern hair loss. For a waterfront venue where quality is so often sacrificed in the pursuit of the dollar, and where preying on understandable tourist ignorance is commonplace, Jack Greene really surprised us both. The food is delicious, the service friendly and the location simply perfect for a sunny afternoon. The prices are high, but you won't walk away feeling one kidney lighter.

Grimacing, gasping and heaving. You knew it was all over when Luke succumbed to the inevitable, burying his face in the black plastic bucket. Not a great time to be sporting a beard.

Pancho Villa

Pancho Villa | Hobart

Food from TasmaniaMexican

Considering they come with a back story of burgers, pizza and anti pasto, the team behind Pancho Villa have exceeded all expectations. To be honest, I'm astonished. The standards they have already set, even so early in their life, are supremely high and will be hard to beat. I can only imagine how good Pancho Villa is going to be in a couple of months time with a few more menu tweaks and few thousand hours of service under their belts!

Mandarin Duck

Mandarin Duck | Hobart

ChineseDumplingsFood from TasmaniaJapanese

Duck is truly a gift from the gods, and the team behind Mandarin Duck know how to treat their produce with the respect it deserves. With the duck alone I would have been happy, yet to find such a satisfying range of dumplings and other small dishes on offer was a welcome surprise, and reason enough to return.
