Nestled amidst the charming back lanes of Mount Maunganui, Hide Thirst & Hunger has earned a reputation for serving exquisite dishes crafted with the freshest local ingredients. Situated a short stroll from the sun-kissed shores of Mount Maunganui's iconic beach, it is a culinary haven for discerning palates.

Hide is a space designed for sharing and creating unforgettable memories. With its spacious courtyard for dining al fresco beneath the warm Bay of Plenty sun or the cosy ambience of the indoor fire come evening, the atmosphere is palpable. Settle in and take your time exploring the tantalising menu, which pays homage to beloved Kiwi classics and the captivating flavours of the world.

Commence your culinary journey with the vibrant kingfish ceviche, a fusion of fresh kingfish, coconut, chilli, and lime, served with crispy tortilla crisps. Alternatively, indulge in the buttermilk-fried chicken, its golden-brown exterior concealing tender, succulent meat, glazed with a honey mustard sauce that will leave you yearning for more. The triple-cooked potatoes with smoked aioli are a must-try, their crispy exterior and fluffy interior perfectly complemented by the creamy, smoky sauce. Pair them with a pint from one of New Zealand's finest breweries for a truly indulgent experience.

For those seeking a meaty indulgence, the barbecue lamb ribs are a fan favourite, their succulent meat falling effortlessly from the bone. The salt and pepper calamari is another crowd-pleaser, its tender calamari coated in a crispy batter and seasoned with just the right amount of salt and pepper. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, embark on a culinary expedition with the barbecue gurnard taco, featuring tender gurnard, onion, coriander, and a tangy tomatillo salsa verde. This flavour sensation will tantalise your palate.

Headed by local culinary enthusiasts, Hide is a true gem in the heart of Mount Maunganui. Good times and exceptional food are the cornerstones of their philosophy, so whatever the occasion, Hide Thirst & Hunger is your go-to destination for a memorable dining experience.
