Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland’s hotel restaurant game is high, incredibly high. In this 2 part series we take you behind the scenes and into the kitchens of 6 must eat hotel restaurants in central Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.

In this one we take you into the kitchen at Park Hyatt and spend the day with Executive Pastry Chef Callum Liddicoat. Callum creates INCREDIBLE pastry and puts on an afternoon tea/high tea you’ve got to experience! We visit Esther at QT Hotel and experience their Mediterranean inspired menu- the team here are all about celebrating New Zealand’s incredible produce and turning it into amazing dishes. Finally we head to FISH at Hilton Auckland to eat their ‘Taste of Fish’ menu- a 3 course plus snacks journey celebrating the best of Aotearoa’s kaimoana seafood. Get ready for some mouthwatering food!

We’re Thomas and Sheena, food and travel fiends. We travel full time, hunting for the BEST local food in the world to showcase via our YouTube videos. Food is a window into a country's culture and one of the most exciting ways to get to know a place.

We're all about eating what and where the locals eat. You won't find food that's been created merely to be social media worthy on here- no rainbow bagels, gold leaf soft serves- just honest food that tastes incredible.

From street food to mom and pop restaurants, we want to show you the best food we find on our travels.
