Auckland: Chicka

New kid on the block of Kingsland’s New North Road, Chicka has just taken up the previous spot of Al’s Deli, serving up its hungry diners Korean fried chicken and beer. Who can’t turn down that combo?

Auckland: Miss Istanbul

Miss Istanbul is a relatively new eatery located in the heart of trendy scene, Ponsonby Central fitted out in the previously located Fish Fish.

Auckland: The Culpeper

The Culpeper, headed by hottie, MKR NZ Judge Gareth Stewart and under the Nourish Group Family, a restaurant I had been meaning to try after feeding my face with a pork belly corn dog at Street Eats. If that doesn’t excite you then I don’t know what will!

Auckland: Tao Restaurant & Bar

Through my laziness of walking down the road to have dinner being too lazy to cook nearing Xmas, I headed to the recently opened Tao Restaurant and Bar in Newmarket. After seeing pictures online of the dumplings, it was added to the list. 

Auckland: White + Wongs

White and Wongs, one of the newer Asian fusion restaurants to pop up in Auckland. After trying their food at Street Eats, and impressed by their bang bang chicken roti roll, it is only natural to hit up their restaurant.

Auckland: Kiss Kiss
