Woohoo! August means it’s Auckland Restaurant Month. This year, it’s come even faster since July was so jam packed with its own foodie events.
There are some amazing fancy events but unless you’re willing to shell out $200-$300 on a single dinner per person, you’re going to want to check out the full list of menus here. I’ve also put together a list of the best deals at $25. The ones accompanied by photos are the ones I’ve been to and can vouch for their deliciousness. With these and other deals, I’m looking forward to trying places I’m normally too broke to try!
