Bottomless Brunch at Wu & You

A few weekend’s ago, #NZBloggers and I hosted our Xmas Soiree at Wu & You in Mount Eden. This was our last #BRUNCHCLUB for 2019, so we celebrated it in style!

3-1

Wu & You are known for their exciting, dynamic and delicious Asian-Fusion dishes, and on the weekends, they offer Bottomless Bubbles and Brunch🍾🍾 Prior to the event, we loved the sound of their WFC Burger with Wu fried chicken, kaffir lime mayo, lettuce and coriander, the Five Spiced Pork Hawker Roll with hoisin and star anise glaze, Malaysian slaw, fried garlic and peanuts, and the Chili Scrambled Eggs with spicy mayo, fresh herbs, crispy shallots and toasted sourdough. YUM. Check out the rest of their menu here.

On the day, we were seated in their outdoor courtyard and had this to ourselves! We priced our tickets at $40 which included Wu & You’s Bottomless Bubbles & Brunch (usually $49), sweet treats during the event (like Sweet Little Favors Christmas cookies and Krispy Kreme doughnuts), plus a FABULOUS Goodie Bag to take home at the end. We also donated $5 of each ticket to the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.

Damn…it looks like I've been a very good girl this year with this goodie bag from @nzcontentcollective_ Xmas Soiree event! #blessed 🎅🎄🎁 Here's a Xmas cracker joke: What does an angry kangaroo do? Swipe to see the answer at the end! 🦘 #bottomlessbrunch for the Soiree event @wuandyou 2 hrs of free flowing mimosas, good food and festive vibes! 🥂 I had Beef Rendang. The meat was tender and rendang curry was very flavourful. Roti game could've been better tho. It needed to be thinner and more flaky. Five Spiced Pork Hawker Roll looked very insta worthy grammable!! Just look at that stack! Just want your regular white people café food for brunch? They also have eggs benny and WTF burger (fried chicken burger) Thank you @_georgieats_ @lozalock @islandgirlblogger for organising such an epic event!! 👌🙌 It was great to meet new peeps and hear about their talent and creativity! #nzbloggers #nzcontentcollective #foodreview #foodiesofauckland #aucklandfoodie #foodielife #foodbloggers #foodie #topcitybites #foodblogger #aucklandeats #foodgram #foodiesofinstagram #instafoodie #nomnom #newzealandeats #instagramfoodies #instafood #foodiegram #foodsofinstagram #foodphotography #foodies #aucklandeats #aucklandfood #eaaaats #eatingout #eatingfortheinsta #bloggersgetsocial #foodiechristmas
