I was in Auckland for a week of intense meetings so I'm ashamed to say I was too tired to explore much having been before several times. But on the food front, I didn't need to go far (stayed at Sky City Grand which is virtually next door). This place has an amazing, true diner atmosphere with kind and friendly staff who couldn't do enough for me on my several visits. On days when I didn't want to sit alone, their takeout option meant I had great food for a bed picnic! Their Reuben's is one of the best I've ever tasted, inside or outside of the US. Their house-made pastrami is heavenly - even just on its own in the plain sandwich. The creamy slaw with peanuts is wonderful too. And one night I went the extra mile for the lemon meringue pie. Wow! The cheesecake looked amazing too but I had to draw the line somewhere! I will be back to try it though. The best thing is that it seemed to have something for everyone - families, couples, groups of friends - and the lonely business traveller! A life raft for me on the other side of the world! Thank you!
