At the end of August the Auckland Restaurant Month finished with a day of Jazzy Street Eats in Shed 10, Queen’s Wharf.
With a diverse line up of central city restaurants serving up their favourite street food for this one day only. There were tastes from around the globe, from Middle Eastern shawarma to Asian summer rolls, Tuscan donuts and much more.
We arrived late in the day when some of the food was running out after the end of a very successful event. But we enjoyed sharing in the fun of the AKL Street Eats with everyone relishing the good food and wine as well as great music.
Dishes from around the world
There was wine, and beer, as well
Not forgetting traditional food trucks too
All served with great jazz by the Liam Neeson Tribute Band
Winter has arrived in Auckland with a week of rain and fog although now there a couple of sunny but cold days. However when we we arrived here six weeks ago we were spoilt with mild weather so it is a pleasure to be reminded of our earlier visit to our second beach in New Zealand – Piha.
Heather and Paddy, the owners of WineJobsonline, picked us up on Sunday afternoon and whisked us off west out of Auckland. Through the suburbs, past Wink’s office at Wine-Searcher, then through the ‘botanic garden’ of the Waitakere Ranges Park to arrive at Piha Beach.
