Breakfast on Thursday morning in Hobart was at the Machine Laundry cafe, a retro, coin laundry cum hipster cafe in Salamanca Square.

Rish had the spiced pumpkin, ricotta and butterscotch hotcakes, while I went for some semidried tomato risotto cakes.

For “restaurant night” at the SPA conference, I chopped and changed my booking a few times, til I ended up at Mezethes Greek Taverna chattering and sharing a platter with some of my favourite speechies. <3 Hobar2012 671

A group of 5 of us hit up the $40 a head seafood banquet, with some next to going to meat version.

Of course, I snacked on a little from both ;)

Shame they wouldn’t let us split the bill as promised.

Chado – The way of tea, Hobart

Friday, July 6th, 2012

On the back of a huge recommendation from Kim, Rish and I went for tea and lunch at Chado in Hobart.

Hobar2012 713

A simple affair, a Japanese set lunch, we chose the tofu over the chicken, and herbal/blended teas.

Hobar2012 711

My tea was a simple but delightful chrysanthemum and goji tisane, with Rish going a black tea with lychee.

Set us back $42 for the two teas and two lunch sets.

So, I will be writing up the actual content of the Speech Pathology conference over at Speech n Stuff, but you came here for the food, right? Yes, I know you well ;)

There’s always a risk at conferences, that it could be repetitive, day in day out, or perhaps the risk of the Melbourne conference, when I had two fruit plates and a leafy salad to live off for a day. But the catering crew at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart won.

I share with you the gluten free offerings for the week.

Hobart Hostel, Barrack Street

Wednesday, July 4th, 2012

I’d originally booked to stay at the Hobart Hostel on Barrack Street in the girl’s dorm, but when Rish decided to join me in Hobart, we changed to a private Queen room. This was with an en suite, for $287 for four nights through wotif.com.

Kim (my Hobart guide and awesomeness person) tells me she used to see bands and drink in this building when it used to be a pub.

The room had a little heater, which kept us very warm. There were a couple of niggles with the toilet keeping running, but not the end of the world! The bed was comfy, the shower HOT, we got new towels each day and Rish hooked into the wifi in the common room. Super friendly owners, and a huge pub kitchen if you chose to cook for yourself!
