Auckland: Chuffed

Cafes have nowhere to hide when serving brunch. Meals are your simple needs and for the first meal of the day when people are starving or worse hungover, brunch is there to fulfil that void.

Auckland: Major Sprout

I think I am seriously sad — I have returned to Major Sprout 3x now and ordered the Creamy Mushrooms every time just changing it very slightly.

Auckland: Winona Forever

A busy new cafe popping up on the street of Parnell, where it seems to be the trend of new openings, bringing back a reason to come to Parnell and not to just stuff our face with chocolate at The Chocolate Boutique.

Auckland: &Sushi

Living centrally gives you more excuses to eat out. Unless you work in Newmarket or the city it means you are fighting off others for lunch in the weekend at &Sushi.

Auckland: Kiss Kiss

Being back for a few weeks now, its been great to see the change in the Auckland food scene. I should probably look at getting some work soon, but in the mean time its been a good excuse to eat out and fill my belly for breakfast, lunch and dinner at all these chic places….

Auckland: Hello Friends and Allies

After my stint in London, I am back in Auckland and ready to rip back into the wild food scene. If I learnt anything in London, although there is a lot of eateries on offer, I found it difficult to find any place that nailed brunch. A kiwi’s fav meal, it had to be one…

Auckland: Cable Bay Winery (Waiheke Island)

Cable Bay Winery, is just one of the beautiful places to visit on Waiheke Island. If your stuck for transport Cable Bay is one of the closer wineries from the ferry station, and is in walking distance.

Auckland: Meadow

Meadow is a beautiful, airy cafe in Meadowbank. I had been meaning to try this cafe for quite sometime, we even came one Monday to find it was closed – my error on checking the opening hours before turning up. It has a very comforting chic interior – or should I say exterior.

Auckland: Shore Road Cafe

Shore Road Cafe is the popular local for Remuera residents. Situated on Shore road, theres ample amounts of car parks. To be honest, I think the cafe is a tad dated. I actually came a few years ago and nothing has changed.

Auckland: The Flaming Onion

The Flaming Onion has been on my radar for quite some time. A mate and I have been on a hunt for the best burgers in Auckland. If you too are a burger junkie, then I would recommend checking out The Flaming Onion. 

Event: Auckland Seafood Festival

Once a year during the hot month of Summer, the deliciously fresh Seafood Festival comes to Auckland. If you haven’t been prior I would highly recommend it.

Auckland: Zool Zool

Zool Zool is the brand new ramen bar on Mt Eden road nestled in with the other popular eateries. To be honest it wasn’t on my top places to visit, but for a simple late night feed it’s a good option.
