Lime Mexican Sawtell

I have always had a "thing" for Mexican food. Whenever I'm in a new area with a restaurant strip, I know I will have to try the local Mexican restaurant. There are always so many crowd favourites on the menu. So when I was in Coffs Harbour to visit Julie, we didn't...

Corner Tree Cafe – Very Veggie

In my recent and ongoing relationship with detox juices, I also tweaked my diet to eat lesser white carbs and meat. I am unable to make a 360-degree switch but an intake of more veggies on a regular basis isn't that hard at all! And what's great is that more and more...

Erwins City of Dreams Manila

Two months ago, I had learned of a second casino-resort opening in Paranaque. It was to be named City of Dreams.  Immediately I imagined the development would include a new casino complex, new food havens and taverns! A quick fiddly doodly with my keyboard and voila!...

Lime Mexican – Coffs Harbour

I have a great love of Mexican food.  I adore the Mexican flavours and I could go into raptures over the perfect guacamole or corn tortilla.  Regular readers may even remember my Corn Tortilla recipe. I tend to take my food cravings quite seriously so we are off to...
