Flame Bar and Grill, Queenstown

Over the last winter season, I did a short snowboarding trip to Queenstown again! Apart from being one of the most beautiful small towns in the world, it’s also home to a lot of amazing food. Our group did a run to the amazing Fergburger every day but aside from that, we set out to try as many tasty restaurants as possible for each dinner.

I was only in Japan last summer but I couldn’t resist a $550 return sale fare (thanks Jetstar), so I jetted back there recently! This time I set out to try a few themed restaurants which I didn’t get to try last time. First up on the list was Alice’s Fantasy Restaurant (絵本の国のアリス), an Alice in Wonderland themed restaurant in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
