The metropolitan centre of New Zealand. Although this doesn't make it sound like a good place to hike, if you get out of the central city, you will be pleasantly surprised. With Waitakere, Riverhead and Woodhill forests to the west and Hunua forest to the east any visitor to the city will have plenty of spots to get their trail fix.

MooChowChow It’s Thai food, but it's totally different for Auckland. Stunning flavours showcased in playful reinventions of Bangkok street food, and it's is a guaranteed diced carrot- and cauliflower-free zone.
Depot Eatery Al Brown’s first venture into the Auckland restaurant scene is a terrific combination of international flavours, locally-sourced produce and seafood, and a laidback but cosmopolitan vibe.
Federal Delicatessen The Breakfast Salad is unusual but pretty tasty! I love the idea of bottomless coffee.
