Gians Sorbetes

At last, a commercial Filipino Sorbetes in New Zealand! And I had tried 5 flavours out of their 16-flavour range. This is quite impressive, a milestone for Filipino cuisine here in New Zealand. Flavours are truly Filipino where they offer ube, jackfruit, avocado, lemongrass ginger, dulce de leche, black coconut,...

TNC Fried Chicken (Massey, Auckland, New Zealand)

The first time we tried this was when the lockdown was downgraded to Level 3 here in Auckland last September 2021. That downgrade means we can now buy takeaways and after 5 weeks of not being able to do so, the day it was lifted, a barrage of customers flooded...

My Fried Chicken (Ponsonby, Auckland, New Zealand)

In Auckland, I think there is no fried chicken place that offers more than two flavours, usually it’s just the spicy or regular. Our restaurant for today definitely offers more than that becuase at My Fried Chicken in Ponsonby you don’t have just two or three flavours, they serve seven...

Lake View Dining (Queenstown, New Zealand)

“Culinary delights served in modern surroundings and topped off with the panoramic view of one of New Zealand’s most iconic lake Wakatipu”, this is what we were expecting when we booked this place but because it was heavily raining that day and the sun had already set the time we...
