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.
