The Great Kiwi Brunch

What do you look forward to on the weekend?  Spending time with family and friends?  A long lie in?  A yoga class?  A walk in the outdoors?  A hangover cure?  

The correct answer is - brunch, and in Auckland it is somewhat of a weekend ritual.
And of course, there are a few Kiwi favourites on the menu...

Smashed Avocado
Avocados are grown in abundance in the Bay of Plenty and feature on menus everywhere during the summer.  This Kiwi favourite served on multi grain toast with rocket & feta to garnish is mouthwateringly good.  

Try it at Melba, Manukau  (South Auckland)

Creamy mushrooms on toast
Super creamy mushrooms in balsamic.  So tasty!

Try it at Bread and Butter, Milford   (North Shore)

Cream cheese and raspberry jam bagels

Before I moved to New Zealand if anyone had suggested mixing cream cheese with preserves I would have called them crazy.  Now the cream cheese on its own just doesn't cut it!

Try it at Olaf's, Mt Eden  (Auckland Central)
