Hobart: What We Ate

Oh Hobart – your cold, quaint city sandwiched between the ocean and the mountains may very well be the closest thing we have to travelling ‘overseas’ at this point in time, cheers, Covid. If you’re anything like us and love a good food safari and are thinking of venturing ‘abroad’, we can safely say that you won’t go hungry in Hobart.

We visited the seaside town back in January across an impromptu, seven days – and honestly, we were low-key nervous that we’d starve considering the little time we had to research the goods. But alas, Hobart pulled through with the tasty treats and we can confirm that their unexpected vegan scene is worth investigating.

Without further ado and in no particular order – feast your eyes on what we ate in Hobart.
