My Favourite NZ Content Creators

[Me at Egg Shop in Brooklyn, New York, holidaying with my friend Christina] Around five years ago, I started this Blog and my Instagram georgieats as a creative outlet to share all my favourite eateries in Auckland and beyond, my travel adventures and the odd baking recipe. Trying out new cafes and restaurants is my favourite hobby and I am always on the hunt for the latest and exciting thing in Auckland. Since then, I have also been writing reviews on Yelp and Zomato and attended some very fun events. Meeting people through these two platforms has been a highlight and I still keep in touch with some of them today. Last year, I became an admin for NZBloggers, a group encouraging, supporting and enabling networking for bloggers and influencers in New Zealand. NZBloggers actually began in 2014, so pretty cool that it has been running for almost five years! I have helped organise and host their monthly Brunch Club events (like here and hereĀ and here), plus a few of us put on a very …

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! Wu & You are known for their exciting, dynamic and delicious Asian-Fusion dishes, and on the weekends, they offer Bottomless Bubbles and BrunchšŸ¾šŸ¾ 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 ChiliĀ 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. …

Bread & Butter Bakery and Cafe

Last month, I organised #NZBloggers October #BRUNCHCLUB which was held at Bread & Butter Bakery and Cafe in Grey Lynn! Owned and run by Isabel Pasch, Bread & Butter Bakery specialises in making traditional European and naturally leavened sourdough breads. All of their bread is certified organic and tastes delicious! You may have tried their bread before, especially because Bread & Butter generously donated their sourdough loaves, bagels and cinnamon brioche for our Pink Ribbon Carnival back in May of this year!Ā  Bread & Butter have three bakeries in Auckland ā€“ Ponsonby Central, Milford and Grey Lynn. At the Grey Lynn branch, this is where all of their breads are baked onsite, and this is where we had our brunch. We were seated in their ā€˜Plate Roomā€™, a private dining room, where the sun poured in (great for pictures!) and it had the most lovely feature wall (below). At our brunch, IsabelĀ spoke to us briefly about her background (she is a trained scientist and science journalist, but after moving to New Zealand with her family, …

Ozone Coffee Roasters

About a month ago, a few foodies and I went along to the opening of Ozone Coffee Roasters in Grey Lynn, where we sampled some of their menu dishes and got to know more about their brand. At the opening, I came across a long table at the back of the eatery and thought “this would be perfect for the #NZBLOGGERS #BRUNCHCLUB!” So, a few weekends’ ago, I hosted my first #NZBloggers #BRUNCHCLUB at Ozone Coffee! There were about 20 bloggers in total, and it was lovely to welcome some new faces along, as well as catch up with old friends. Ozone CoffeeĀ has been roasting coffee and building relationships in New Plymouth, London and beyond for the past 20 years. Ozoneā€™s latest venture in Grey Lynn is an all-day eatery, with seating for 100, complete with an open kitchen, and a dedicated coffee bar, with many brews on offer and their beans are roasted on-site ā€“ make sure you take a peek at the back to see all the action! The space is beautifully designed, …
