Welcome back to my Auckland review series! Today we’re reviewing Rosie’s, a vibrant eatery in the neighborhood of Parnell. If you missed my other Auckland guides, you can check them out here.
As mentioned in this article, Rosie’s was the first cafe I visited in Auckland. And let me tell you, it was a pretty delicious introduction to the local gastronomy.
I know what you’re thinking.
‘Molly, a banana, peach and pomegranate fruit salad has no business flaunting it’s delicious summery flavours around the blog now that Autumn is upon us.’
And… I know, I know. You’re probably right. But I couldn’t resist posting this- it’s just too damn delicious to not be shared.
Having recently taken a trip to Auckland
which was heavily incentivised by it’s incredible foodie scene, I thought I’d share with you a collection of the yummiest places I found to eat everything from breakfast bowls, raw salads, smoothies and dairy free ice cream to cakes, Filipino steamed buns and pizza by the slice. In the lead up to my trip, I got my researching cap on and ploughed my way through endless blog reviews, web articles and even instagram to find the absolute best of the best in and around Auckland. Once there, I ate out three times a day, almost every day- so hopefully I can impart some knowledge! Without further ado, here are the eateries that gained my vote.
Hello to Tuesday, and HELLO to these Shakshuka Baked Eggs with Avocado and Hummus. Let’s get this party started!
Now, baked eggs, or Shakshuka as they are called in North Africa, are without a doubt one of my all time favourite things to eat for breakfast, brunch, lunch OR dinner. They’re a fantastically versatile dish- but more on that later. In fact, the only recipe that could possibly compare in terms of versatility, flavour and speed are overnight oats. Come to think of it, my pumpkin spice overnight oats should be making an appearance any day now that autumn is on its way. Excitement levels are HIGH!!!
Last month, I embarked on a whirlwind week long trip to Auckland, New Zealand. The main purpose of my trip was to visit my boyfriend, who was spending the month working in Auckland City Hospital. Secretly, though? I was almost as excited about New Zealand’s incredible breakfast offerings as I was to see him. Shh…
We researched the best breakfast spots in Auckland and spent the week making our way through our favourites. Then, on my seventh and last day, we visited Catroux for breakfast. And let’s just say it totally knocked all the other incredible food we’d sampled that week right out of the park. Everything was absolutely heavenly. I mean, I can’t even explain. But I shall try…
So… Coconut cupcakes with coconut ginger frosting. Can I get a “YES PLEASE” over here?!
Coconut is a bit of a love hate ingredient, isn’t it? Personally, I fall into the ‘love’ category. In fact, my lemon, coconut and olive oil cake might be one of my favourite things ever. Not to mention my pina colada protein smoothie bowl. So these cupcakes, which have every coconut ingredient you can think of from desiccated coconut, to coconut flour, coconut essence and coconut oil, are pretty much my idea of a fantastic time.
Let me start by saying that I have never had anything I didn’t absolutely love from bakery47. Ever. And, uh, Andrew and I go there a lot.
As in, a lot.
It is hands down our favourite place to head for breakfast and brunch in Glasgow. When we talk about checking out other places for breakfast, we mean well. We do. But we both secretly know, deep down, that it’s not going to happen. Because bakery47 has stolen our stomachs.
Good morning my friends and HAPPY WEDNESDAY! Let’s make some NYC Deli Style Pastrami, Rocket and Mustard sandwiches to help us over that mid week hump.
Now, I would like to preface by saying that I have never been to New York, and have therefore never tried a legit NYC Deli style pastrami sandwich.
