Eating Out in Auckland, New Zealand

Pacific Rim Cuisine is the highlight of dining out in Auckland. This unique style of cooking includes everything from Kumara, a local sweet potato to shellfish, pipis, tuatua, and the world famous New Zealand crayfish. The range of food is huge; the influx of Asian immigrants has resulted in a plethora of Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese restaurants. Mexican, Italian and Turkish restaurants, to name a few, are also prevalent, showing the massive variety of delightful meals available.
