Auckland’s Best Cantonese Food Part 2:

Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland has a multi-cultural food scene like nowhere else in New Zealand. Over 200 different ethnic communities call Auckland home and this makes for a diverse food scene. Over the next few weeks we’re taking you on a round the world food tour via Auckland’s restaurants. In this video we’re hunting down some of the best spots for Cantonese food. We take you into the kitchen of one of Auckland’s oldest Chinese restaurants, Pearl Garden- a locals favourite for yum cha- Cantonese brunch. We eat classic Hong Kong cafe fare at Hungry head of french toast and yuen yeung (half coffee and half tea) and share our favourite restaurant for sui mei- Cantonese roast meats, Golden Garden. These are Auckland’s tastiest Cantonese eats, hit subscribe and get ready for some mouthwatering food.

A huge thank you to the Kan family for treating us to yum cha!

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 genuine, authentic food that tastes incredible.

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