Being a newbie in Auckland has it's advantages! For me, i am giving myself an excuse to dine out weekly " in order " to have something new to share about great spot and food in Auckland. This time round, it's Burger burger at Ponsonby central.
Located in one of the prime location at the heart of Auckland, Ponsonby Central is definitely a must place to go for weekend brunch with family, friends, or alone (why not?). The place has gorgeous selection of restaurant to choose from, find out more about the restaurant here.
My date for the day was Sharon, we were strolling around to find a right spot for our catch up session, and because it was a peak Saturday brunch time (and raining; gosh, what a timing) - all places mostly are occupied, or not quite what we want to sit at. Then Sharon was like having a light bulb moment of Burger Burger. Okie dokie, off we go in search of the resto.
Greeted by a very cheerful and helpful lady, and bunch of friendly kitchen staff as well - we just got our catch up spot. I decided to get a fish bunnuce (bun lettuce, geddit?), beef on bun for Sharon, kumara fries, coffee for myself and sparkling drink for Sharon. The food was awesome, affordable $20ish per person, and everything was just nice. Although I am not very impressed of eating a fish with bunch of lettuce wrapped on at first, but i guess it's a very very good option for carb free diet.
It felt so good to have a few hours off " mommy duty" to just be with girl friend and sharing about everything. Having to move to Auckland worries me in terms of getting new friends. I met Sharon at my current work place, it was really just a quick hi and bye as we were swamped by our work and stuff - then in the first 2 weeks i joined the company, Sharon left for next adventure. Thank goodness for whatsapp and social media, we are back catching up over food, coffee and more coffee.
Back to the location, do visit this place if you have a day or more to spend in Auckland city. It's worth it :D
