21 Grams Cafe & Patisserie (Rosedale, Auckland, New Zealand)

When we first came here in New Zealand many years ago there were only a few choices for breads and pastries, by default it was Bakers Delight or the supermarket. Most of these bakeries from the past usually sells those heavy dense bread as they are usually eaten as the...

Janken (Herne Bay, Auckland, New Zealand)

Moving from North to Northwest was quite a challenge for us in terms of dining options specially when it comes to Japanese, we missed our family favourite Naritas, up until now nothing can replace its bento box offerings, while Sushi Tomi was close we still missed that restaurant we visit...

Selera (New Market, Auckland, New Zealand)

Want an affordable and cheerful place for lunch in New Market then Selera is your place. It’s a really nice Malaysian restaurant, lots of options, large portions and the service is quite fast, its actually like being in Malaysia and I can attest to that since I lived there for...

Nari Sushi (Massey, Auckland, New Zealand)

Many months ago, when we first moved here out in North West the first thing we noticed is that there are very few food options in the area, maybe because it’s still a growing suburb or people living here are not just interested in a variety of food compared to...

Fiance Restaurant (Gisborne, New Zealand)

Our last leg on our short trip to Lower North Island in New Zealand and we are here at Gisborne, it is also our last dine out for this journey but was it a good choice to have our last dining experience here? After a 3-hour trip from Napier we...

Deluxe Diner (New Plymouth, New Zealand)

The only thing I had regretted after my many trips in America, mainland and Hawaii is to try the real American diner, I am not sure why I haven’t visited any but for some reason I had forgotten it since there are many things to do in the states, so...

Unphogettable (Havelock North, New Zealand)

This was the last few days of our trip and heading back to Auckland we spent a couple of days in the Hawkes Bay region. After visiting the Arataki Honey Centre and Te Mata Peak, we were looking for a place to have our late lunch, the nearest town was...

La Cloche (Wellington CBD, Wellington, New Zealand)

They said Wellington have the best cafe’s and every Wellingtonian knows that the capital has some of the best coffee in the world, that is a big title to claim but it is true since Wellington has been in the list of “World’s best coffee: 8 cities to visit for...

Chow Tory (Wellington CBD, Wellington, New Zealand)

If you’re looking for a quick and cheap lunch menu and you happen to be in Wellington then I would suggest Chow in Tory Street, although it’s not perfect, a NZ$15.00 for a soup, 2 dishes and rice is hard to beat. We visited Wellington a couple of months ago...
