Food & Drink

Home to some of the best produce in the world, it’s little wonder New Zealand is establishing a reputation for great food. The nation’s cuisine draws on many different cultural influences to offer a wide variety. Get into fresh New Zealand seafood, browse a farmers’ market or sample a traditional Māori hangi. If you’re thirsty, seek out New Zealand’s award-winning wines and craft beers, or crack open a bottle of the iconic Kiwi soft drink, L&P.

Book a table at a local restaurant, grab a drink at a new bar or try a tasty treat at a unique café. Whatever you’re in the mood for, support local businesses and tell them you saw them on What's Hot New Zealand.
