The Parnell Rose Gardens are just a stone’s throw away from my house. A favourite spot of mine during summer for its beautiful roses, Pohutukawa trees and close proximity to Judge’s Bay and views overlooking Auckland Harbour. A bonus is that you can lunch right next to the roses, making it the perfect spot for a picnic! Thanks to the Uber Eats app for making this possible!
Last weekend, the weather had cleared and the sun was shining, so my sister and I headed across to the Rose Gardens for a picnic. I opened the Uber Eats app on my phone, and was excited to discover the many eatery options available for a picnic. We chose Bird on A Wire. Their aim is to simply feed the world with handmade and sustainable food – their menu includes free range rotisserie chicken, fresh salads, sandwiches and sides. Sounded like the perfect picnic food to me!
We ordered a Chicken Feed For One – a quarter free range rotisserie chicken and a medium salad of Raw Beetroot and Japanese Slaw, plus a Small Salad with a little bit of rotisserie chicken on top, Antipodes still water, and my personal favourite, a Korean BBQ Baguette with pulled chicken, Korean BBQ sauce, mayonnaise and slaw.
The meals from Bird on A Wire arrived promptly and it was easy to share around the food. The salads were very fresh and healthy, while the rotisserie chicken provided substance to the meal. My personal favourite was the Korean BBQ Baguette – it was delicious, filing and gone in a flash. When I think of picnics, I think of baguettes!
The summer season is the perfect time for a feast in your local garden or park. To me, the Uber Eats app is ideal for your next summer picnic. You won’t have to worry about organising which dishes your friends/family are bringing, or who will be sorting the drinks. It is all done for you, with a few simple taps on the Uber Eats app. Delicious food delivered straight to your location, which is simplicity at its best!
