Best Bites in New Zealand

Hi All,

What is your favorite thing to eat in all of NZ? Mussels in Havelock? Pizza in Queenstown? A memorable meal where you would love to return? Fancy food in Auckland? If you were to tell a visitor about a don't-miss food experience, what would it be?

Oh! What a good post.

It's really not high dining but my favourite bite has been in Nelson at the Victorian Rose. My husband and I ordered a plate of ribs to share and were pretty shocked by just how tasty they were and how much you got for the price - so much so, we had to visit a second time.

It's also a really nice, chilled out pub and one of the few we found that opened late.

My favourite food has been fish and chips in either Devonport or Mission Bay!
