Where is your city?
What’s the cheapest way to enjoy this city at night?
A walk along the Wellington waterfront after dark! It’s free and you can see all the glimmering lights of Upper Hutt across the harbour. Otherwise the Night Market on Cuba Street on a Friday night is a good way to soak up the multicultural atmosphere of Wellington.
What’s your favorite restaurant here? What’s so special about it?
Ombra! It’s a Venetian Barcaro that’s on the coolest little street in New Zealand, Cuba Street. Ombra’s speciality is tapas. Everything on the menu is beyond delicious, though the venison meatballs are definitely something else!
What’s your favorite thing to do on a warm Sunday morning in this city?
Head to the markets on the waterfront of course! You can pick up exotic fruit and veg here for super cheap, plus there’s food trucks galore with food from almost every nation over the world! Once you’re nice and full, you can wander down to Oriental bay to enjoy a food coma on this beautiful manmade beach. If you’re up for it, you can then walk the food off by trekking 20 minutes to the top of Mount Victoria. You can experience the beautiful 360 degree views of windy Wellington from here and on a sunny day, there’s nothing better!
What were some of the hidden gems in that city? Why?
If you want to experience the best coffee New Zealand has to offer, definitely head to Hangar on Dixon st. This is the flagship store of the coffee roasters Flight and they do these awesome little coffee testers. They’ll serve you an espresso, a cold drip and a flat white on a cute little wooden tray with some sparkling water as a palette cleanser. The food is also exceptional! Other than that, head to a Chef’s Palette outlet (there’s a few over the city) if you want to eat like a local. For $6NZD you’ll get a huge helping of noodles, vegies and meat with one of their delicious homemade sauces. I’d recommend the honey soy and garlic chicken one. Besides that, the Botanical Gardens has a nice spot down near Tinakori rd if you want to hang out with a picnic in the sun!
