Cuisine: New Zealand
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35
Overlooking the glittering viaduct, The Lula Inn serves the best of local NZ food and unforgettable G&Ts.
Join Auckland's most fashionable crowd in this tropical paradise in the middle of the city. Potted palms brush the ceilings while the light décor gives the place definite beachy vibes; chilled by day, glitzy by night.
Begin with some starters that skillfully combine cuisines and leave you wanting more! The jalapeno and gruyere doughnut certainly sound intriguing, as does the onion and goat's cheese calzone. Alternatively, keep it Asian with a bao bun, a duck spring roll or bok choy dumplings.
For mains, indulge in some true home comforts. Juicy cheeseburgers, moreish mussels and fiery green curries are just a few examples. If you're on a health kick, try their grain salad or pearl barley risotto and if it's a cheat day, who better to celebrate with than a pizza?!
Polish it all off with an expertly mixed G&T from their 40 strong gin bar from NZ and beyond, or a bottle of fizz if it's a bubbly kind of day (which is every day in case you're wondering).
