Over a month ago, I checked out The Kimchi Project along with a few food bloggers. I’ve heard about this new Asian Fusion cafe/restaurant and I was quite excited to try it. Thanks to the lovely Tiffany of Heartshrooms, I had my first dining experience here.
In the last year, Takapuna has gained an amazing selection of new eateries and restaurants. We’re spoiled for choice and the latest place I’ve tried is Artwok. We went for Father’s Day and it was a really good choice.
Food at The Culpeper
Last month we checked out The Culpeper in the city for lunch. We were kindly given a voucher from The Nourish Group from my partner’s dad and it was about to expire. We couldn’t waste an opportunity to try a new food place so off we went.
Tok Tok Kitchen
Last Sunday, I had lunch with my family at Tok Tok, a restaurant I’ve been wanting to try since it opened in Takapuna some time last year. It was my dad’s birthday so I took it as a great opportunity to book this place.
It’s an Asian fusion restaurant which is quite the rage at the moment and this place did not disappoint. If you want to know more about this place and the food we ordered, continue down below. Just beware, I have a lot of delicious-looking food ahead.
High Tea at Waipuna Hotel
Last week, I was kindly invited by Zomato to an ‘Ever so girly and glamorous High Tea’ at Waipuna Hotel. This was an invitation I simply couldn’t resist so that Saturday morning, I got ready, drove to the hotel and went inside Wellington’s Restaurant and Bar where I greeted by the lovely view of Panmure Basin and Mount Wellington.
I had a feeling it was going to be a great day and I was right. To know my first high tea experience at Waipuna Hotel, click below. It was an afternoon full of good food and meeting new people too.
Dessert has to be my favourite type of food. I’m always up for something sweet and I swear I have a different stomach for dessert as no matter how full I am, I could still have room for it.
This is why I got really excited when Miann opened up in Auckland. If you didn’t know, Miann is a new dessert place in the city which is by the known pastry chef Brian Campbell (ex-head chef of Milse). He finally opened up his own restaurant and I was dying to try it out.
I’ve now been a couple of times so I can give you a bit of a review and show you the beautiful desserts Miann has to offer.
The Glass Goose: Cocktails & Food
This is an incredibly late post but over a month ago, I went to The Glass Goose for the first time for #cocktailclub. The amazing NZbloggers group and Zomato teamed up for an awesome night. I met other NZ bloggers and we made cocktails together. It was a fun night.

Food: Federal Delicatessen
If you live in Auckland and haven’t heard of this place, you may want to check it out. Federal Delicatessen is in front of SkyCity and besides another famous food place, Depot Eatery.
I’ve been here a couple of times and the last was for a late lunch with my sister after we watched the Aloha movie in Gold Class. Thanks BloggersClub!
See below for more photos of this food place and of course, the lovely food.
On the day we watched Singin’ in the Rain, my sister and I met up in town and needed lunch. She recommended this place CooCup. It is a little food place across the Auckland Library and Auckland Art Gallery. I wouldn’t have known it if she hasn’t told me.
This place is super affordable and has great interior. I think this is perfect for uni students and I wish this was open when I was at studying at university as it is close by.

My first #BrunchClub at LOOP
Last Saturday, I went to my first ever #BrunchClub event. I was quite nervous going alone but I’m so glad I did because I had a lovely time meeting other bloggers.
It was held at LOOP in Kingsland. I’ve never been to this restaurant before but the food was great and I had three courses.
