Wellington Foodie Bucket List

Food / Life

The hardest thing about saving for my OE (which I depart for tomorrow) was to curb my addiction to EATING OUT! Wellington is crammed with more bars, cafes and restaurants per capita than New York. As a self proclaimed foodie it is no wonder that my weekend normally revolves around food – after work vino’s, brunch, coffee dates, dinners and sunday markets. Although I am super excited to move to London I will miss all the Wellington eateries. Here is a list of my faves! I hope you guys agree / this gives you some inspiration for when you are stuck on where to go!

  • Ti Kouka – pulled pork burger, salted caramel cookies
  • Matterhorn – proximo wine, squid
  • Prefab – amazing coffee, really anything on the menu but in particular the potato gratin
  • Le Canard down at The Wellington Markets on a Sunday – chicken baguette
  • Loretta – sweet rice pudding
  • The Bresolin – delicious menu for dinner, but also great for an after work drink
  • Mt Vic Chippery – pulled pork burger and kumara chips
  • Ombre – the gnocchi (this changes frequently but is always delicious), polenta chips
  • Tasting Room – beef wellington
  • Five Boroughs – putin
  • Cafe Polo – anything from the sweet treats cabinet
  • Maranui – the big breakfast


  • Nam D takeaway shop – banh mi
  • Joe’s Garage – sweetie
  • The Hangar – good coffee
  • Havana bar – strong drinks
  • Ortega Fish Shack – my favourite (where the featured image was taken)

Next blog post will be coming from Asia ! 😀
