Introducing the Metro Top 50 Dishes with Stella Artois

Designed around a shared love for the Auckland hospitality industry, Stella Artois and Metro are kicking off a celebration of Auckland's finest, shown in joyful detail through Metro Best Dishes in the new issue.

Introducing the Metro Top 50 Dishes with Stella Artois

Apr 4, 2023 City Life

The list of 50 restaurants and dishes throughout our city highlights a broad variety of what can be enjoyed on Auckland’s diverse menus alongside a chalice of Stella Artois. The feature was compiled by Metro’s writers, along with some special guests from the hospitality industry, and photographed by the talented Vanessa Wu.

The dishes range from the intricate and elaborate sashimi platter at Ponsonby restaurant Cocoro , to a bamboo steamer of hot soup dumplings (xiaolongbao) at North Shore favourite Chu Long Ji . From long-time 17 year menu features in The Engine Rooms’ crispy breaded pork schnitzel dish, to newcomers Duo Eatery with their bright raw fish on toast brunch dish.

Metro N°440 is out now!

With progressive councillors starting to score some wins under what was anticipated to be a reactionary major, Hayden Donnell asks: Has Wayne Brown gone woke?
Plus: we go out and investigate Auckland’s nightlife (or in some cases, the lack thereof), with best bars (with thanks to Campari); going-out diaries from Chlöe Swarbrick, BBYFACEKILLA.mp3, Poppa.Jax & more; a look into Auckland’s drugs by Don Roew (who’s holding and how much they paid for it); we go on the campaign trail with Willie Jackson, talk to gallerist Michael Lett, drink martinis and alternative wines, start seeing a therapist, visit Imogen Taylor’s studio, look into Takutai Tarsh Kemp’s wardrobe. And more!
