New Zealand


I love New Zealand. Not only has it been most beautiful country I have travelled to so far, but it has such fresh food and the BEST and consistent coffee around.

NZ coffee

I though the Sydney cafes served pretty good coffee. There might be a bum day when you’re not lucky enough and find a cafe which serves a weak cup but the cafes around New Zealand have been so consistent in serving a good cup.

This is not just my opinion though as my Aussie friend had also declared it. She ordered a weak latte and she said that her latte didn’t taste watery at all like most weak lattes she gets. It had the coffee taste in it and the smooth creaminess of the milk. I had my regular flat white. My flat white was strong and full-bodied. I can taste the flavor of the coffee in my mouth without being burnt combining with the creaminess of the milk. Heavennnnnn……

Another drink which I discovered was Feijoa. I saw my Kiwi friend having a bottle and it immediately piqued my interest. Feijoa I learned is pineapple guava.

Maranui Cafe  Savoury muffin

I was also on the lookout for savoury muffins the moment my plane landed in Wellington.Savoury muffins are something I discovered in New Zealand and I just love them. I’m a light breakfast eater and not really the bacon and eggs type of person. This was just the right breakkie for me. Savoury muffins are actually muffins which have ingredients like sun-dried tomatoes, feta and herbs.

Main reason why the food in New Zealand is so good is because of how fresh the produce are. Vegetables of vibrant greens and yellows, crispy lettuce leaves for salads, fresh fish from the sea.

Honey Kiwi Ice Cream

On the flight back, I was served Honey Kiwi ice cream for the dessert. Sweetish taste of honey with a tinge of tartness from the kiwi. Nice.
