Kiss Kiss, Mount Eden, Auckland

Kiss Kiss, Mount Eden, Auckland

Our first dinner attempt incurred queues so I returned to Kiss Kiss on my sad but optimistic lonesome to make sure I got a sample of their food offering. This time in breakfast form. Kiss Kiss is a funky eatery from the folk that brought […]

Umi Sushi Bar, Auckland CBD

Umi Sushi Bar, Auckland CBD

One of my favourite university haunts was Umi Sushi located in the Atrium on Elliot foodcourt. A lot has changed in this mall over the years, but it is nice knowing nothing has changed here. Lots of sushi choice, lots of non-sushi choices, well priced, […]

Citizen Park, Kingsland, Auckland

Citizen Park, Kingsland, Auckland

Popped into Citizen Park for a long overdue catchup with friends. I quite liked the lovely outdoor dining area which was perfect for this summer afternoon. The menu is a contemporary mix of Mexican and American influences and what I ordered worked for me.

The Store, Britomart, Auckland

Beard Papa’s, St Lukes, Auckland

I was passing through the St Lukes shopping mall, and Kristina recommended checking out Beard Papa’s along the way. Originally from Japan and with 180+ stores in Japan and another 180+ stores elsewhere, Beard Papa’s proudly proclaim the world’s best cream puffs.

Daruma Ramen, Botany Downs, Auckland

Daruma Ramen, Botany Downs, Auckland

Our first pick of the Daruma Sushi Go Round was too packed so we strolled over to their nearby ramen and donburi focused outlet around the corner. They know that people can’t be bothered with the wait and are looking for a consolation option. Fortunately […]

Yummy Kitchen, Manukau, Auckland

Yummy Kitchen, Manukau, Auckland

My parents are big fans of Yummy Kitchen, we’ve been frequenting it as a family for many years and it was one of their selections for my visit back home. We ventured in ordering two quintessential Malaysian dishes and the quality of the food is […]
