Taste New Zealand

The lowdown on Kiwi Cuisine

Taste-nz_header_full_for_exchange

From fresh sea food to tasty roasts, hokey pokey’s to traditional hangi’s, New Zealand is one country that knows its food. And with over 14,000 kilometres of coastline and 13 sheep for every one person, New Zealand has no shortage of fresh supplies! Check out our picks for the ultimate culinary NZ experience:

The Mussel Pot, Havelock

Eating mussels, delicious. Eating green mussels, really? Well apparently so. Hailed as (yet another) new super food, green lip mussels are a New Zealand speciality, tasted best at the unashamedly ironic Mussel Pot restaurant in Havelock. Wash down with a famous Marlborough wine or local beer.

Akaroa Fish and Chips, Banks Peninsula

Fush en chups, (or fish and chips!) are an absolute New Zealand must and highly recommended is the delicious Akaroa fish and chip restaurant in, you guessed it, Akaroa! Worth the 90 minute drive from Christchurch just to visit this picturesque French inspired fishing village, try the blue cod but be warned, you may have to form an orderly queue!

Strathmore Bakery & Café, Wellington

Whether it’s pineapple lumps, lolly cake or traditional kiwifruit pavlova, New Zealand is one nation with an undeniable sweet tooth. Head to Strathmore Bakery in Wellington for a taste of the award winning sweet stuff, and be sure to try the incredible pikelets!

Tamaki Maori Village, Rotorua

If there’s one cuisine you should try whilst in NZ, it’s a traditional Māori hangi. Cooked in an underground pit with hot stones, and infused with a mouth-watering smoky flavour, the hangi is the ultimate BBQ experience. The Tamaki Maori Village also serves up Maori bread, fresh salads, seafood and desserts, and vegetarians are happily catered for. Enjoy!

    Just checked the site for the Redwoods Treehouse and found this message:

    " *Please note the Redwoods Treehouse no longer operates
    as a restaurant and is not open to the general public.
    The venue operates for private functions for 30 people and
    is not available for individual bookings or for casual dining."

    Looked fantastic to try, but pretty gutted now that it's impossible :(
