Best Cheap Eats in New Zealand

  1. 1
    "I travelled to Malaysia a few years ago and fell head-over-heels for the unique melting pot of flavours that come from this South-East Asian slice of paradise. So when I came home to Auckland I began a quest - to search out the most original flavours I could find. Malaysian food is a real blend of Malay, Indian and Chinese flavours and that’s what makes it so cool. Before I stumbled across Selera in Newmarket, I thought I’d nailed it with an inner-city restaurant but for a good cheap eat, this little gem is where I go. Known for doing one of the most traditional beef rendang dishes in Auckland, their meals are steal at just $13.50 for a main. And the service is the kind of friendly hospitality you come to expect in Malaysia. What a fabulous find!"

    "Wafts of delicious spicy flavours engulf you as soon as you step off New North Rd and into this very popular Indian restaurant in Kingsland. With reflective mirrors and walls deep-red in colour, you are instantly transported to the East and a world of spicy delights. This is wholesome, authentic Indian food done perfectly every time. And that’s before even mentioning the out-of-this-world prices. Samosa are one of my go-to snacks when I’m on the run and Tiffin does such a clever creation of this spiced potato pastry that’s so good, I always wish for just one more bite. And at just $6.50, their samosa are some of the best value in town. It’s also a good cheap eat with friends because they do banquets that start from just $35 per person and it’s a feast fit for a king (or a queen!)."
