This article is dedicated to all the passionate travelers who don’t only love exploring the world but are insanely in love with food in general. Traveling is not all about going to new places but it is also about discovering new cuisines, cultures and people. One must make sure that a destination is chosen keeping in mind all these features. For all the foodies out there, I would most definitely recommend Auckland. The city is an amazing place to visit. It has a good climate, secure environment, beautiful destinations and above all divine food. I’m usually not the one who would book last minute first class flights, but when you really need a vacation and the time is short, you make hasty and impromptu decisions. To be honest, it is not something I later regret, especially if it is a place as cool as Auckland. My short trip to Auckland pretty much revolved around food. The city is home to some of the best restaurants and cafes. Mentioned below are the top ones that you must visit if you are lucky enough to be there.
Located within the hotel Debrett, Debretts Kitchen offers a wonderful experience. Whether, it is high-tea, lunch or dinner, the meals are top notch and delicious. The restaurant is a busy place, so I would recommend you make reservations beforehand.
The French Café is a very classy and posh hang out place in Auckland. The name may suggest that it is just a random café that serves snacks and coffee but in reality it is far from that. The French café offers delicious four-course dinners and fancy wines. Its menu is short and exclusive. Apart from the food, the waiters with French accents dressed stylishly are a treat for the eyes. The overall experience at this place is one that remains etched in memory for a long time.
Located on Parnell Rd, Non Solo Pizza is the ultimate place for pizza in Auckland. The name and ambiance might not be as appealing and fancy as other places but the pizzas served here are delicious. The authentic Italian taste and warm bread reminds you of Italy.
In Auckland, the competition is high in the food business. Among all popular restaurants, O’Connell Street Bistro remains to be one of the most competitive. Being in the food business for 17 years, you could say that they are an expert when it comes to cooking. The ambiance is great and the dishes are so beautifully presented that you almost don’t want to ruin them by eating but then the aroma takes over and you immediately feed your growling stomach.
For some divine Thai and Asian food, a visit to the Blue Elephant is highly recommended. The indoor area is warm and cozy while the outdoor area is refreshing and fun, especially if the weather is pleasant.
