Auckland’s food scene is not stopping anytime soon; it’s hard to keep up! These new #aucklandeats got us excited with the classics, but also the flavours unbeknownst to many of us!

After 26 years of serving up Mexican Tacos and DJs sets on 115 Ponsonby Road, we are introduced to a new establishment, Nami Record Bar, founded by the owners of OCKHEE and swings.

Settle in as they serve Asian-inspired small bites and your classic cocktails; upgraded. If you come in during Friday and Saturday’s, you’ll also hear guest DJs playing. By the end of the night, find yourself on the dance floor, under the disco ball 🪩

Can’t get enough of Domo Bakery’s dessert croissants? Well, the owners might of aced yet another breakfast item - bagels 🥯 BB's Bagels' array of bagel selections don’t just stop at the classic ‘smoked salmon + cream cheese’. To sweeten your cravings, they've also got asian-inspired flavours too - matcha, hōjicha, and even soy mochi?! 🍡

I don’t know about you but when temperatures are dropping, I crave stews and soups to warm me up. I doubt that Dweji’s opening date is simply a coincidence, as winter falls upon us very soon.

In hopes to (finally) give us authentic Korean dining in Newmarket, Dweji specialises in 국밥 (gukbap) which literally translates to soup rice 🍲 In a hot stone bowl, this soup is packed full of protein and veggies that you might as well mix the rice into the soup - a flavourful bite every time!

find Dweji:

📍 2-8 Osborne Street, Newmarket

Mon - Sun                             12pm - 9pm
