Five places I’m loving right now around Auckland:
European baked noms. Their eclairs are out of this world.
South Indian food in bite-sized pieces. Think the Indian version of yum-cha, on platters. And vegetarian, to my best recall. The owner is more than happy to recommend stuff, too, so don’t be afraid.
Pastries! Cakes! Delights! Plus a bona-fide deli for all your other needs!
The place to go for baklava and tartiflette. Other stalls include all kinds of artisan produce, baked goods, seafood and more, right next to La Cigale itself.
So I’m not a huge gelato fan, but the innovative flavours at Giapo are almost enough to convert me. Go.
