Food of New Zealand

Food of New Zealand

New Zealand has the most consistently great food of anywhere on our travels. The standard is incredibly high and we didn't have a single bad meal in our five weeks there. Even McDonalds is great because they have lime shakes, which are not available in England!

We had our fill of the traditional, home grown New Zealand and Māori foods and original dishes including lamb, kumara, taro, salmon, Kiwi burgers, kiwifruit and of course pavlova for desert!

From top left to right, in rows:

1. The Last Post, Oamaru. One of the best Kiwi burgers, a lovely sesame seed bun
2. Mackenzies Cafe Bar & Grill, Lake Tekapo. A traditional New Zealand restaurant. I got a steak with a hot slate to cook at the table
3. Cadbury World, Dunedin. Perky Nana's are Banana flavoured chew bars
4. Mackenzies Cafe Bar & Grill, Lake Tekapo. Me cooking steak!
5. Lake Bar, Wanaka. Pie, gravy and pea's on a cold day by the lake Wanaka
6. The Find, Queenstown. Six chips! Nice presentation tho
7. Speights Brewery Ale House, Dunedin. Trying a selection of Speights ales. Speight’s Gold Medal Ale was my favourite

9. C1, Chirstchurch. A sewing machine water dispenser!
10. Cider's in the sun at Te Anau
11. Ice cream's on the plane from Queenstown
12. Fergburger, Queenstown. Hands down the best burger and perhaps the best meal I've ever eaten. We were initially put off by the 100's of people queuing all day, everyday but after being told by everyone it was 100% worth the wait we tried it on our last day in New Zealand.
13. Fresh Choice, Te Anau. Big, soft, delicious, iced current bun
14. Lake Hawea Hotel, Wanaka. Lamb, veg and chips

17. Panama, Nelson. Lamb skewers
18. Skyline Stratosfare Restaurant, Bob’s Peak, Queenstown. A buffet at the top of the Skyline Gondola, great views and food
19. Shawtys Cafe Restaurant & Bar, Twizel. You can probably sense a theme here, but this was one of the nicest pizza's we've ever had. Even better they did Gluten free for Cat
20. Black Forest Cafe, Naseby. Hot chocolate New Zealand style
21. Tin Plate Kitchen & Bar, Lake Tekapo. Pizza and beer
22. Cadbury World, Dunedin. Our spoils from the Cadbury World factory tour

25. Skyline Stratosfare Restaurant, Bob’s Peak, Queenstown. Getting stuffed at the buffet
26. The Old Mountaineer's Cafe, Mt Cook. Pie and chips with views of Mt Cook.
