The Raw Kitchen, Scratch Bakers & Best Ugly Bagels @ Auckland

January 20, 2017

A strawberry chia pudding & black lemonade (made with cold-pressed lemon juice, activated charcoal & naturally alkaline water), while pausing to ponder in the peaceful courtyard of The Raw Kitchen, nestled in a discreet back-lane of Auckland.

Stopping for a snack with Scratch Bakers deservedly revered pork belly pie, as close to perfect as a fresh, flaky pie might be.

Lingering over Best Ugly Bagels beautifully crisp bagels, smeared with a house-made chocolate hazelnut spread (other options include Zany Zeus organic cream cheese, Te Horo raspberry jam or Marshs Central Otago clover honey, NZ$5 each).
