Eastern Tastes Approve

Many newcomers drawn to New Zealand’s quality of life are of Asian descent observes Ming Wong writing for the Chinese publication Global Times. “This explains why cities such as Auckland and Christchurch now offer a variety of decent Asian cuisines. In Riccarton, a working class suburb of Christchurch, I had authentic-tasting xiaolongbao. In Lake Tekapo, surely one of the most scenic locations in the country, I ate silky smooth salmon sashimi at the Japanese Kohan  restaurant. New Zealand cooking as a whole has gone both gourmet and upmarket, with a lot of emphasis on organic ingredients, sophisticated cooking and pleasing décor. Even in a small place like Arrowtown (population 2151), we had the choice between Thai, Indian, a lovely-looking English pub lunch and a chic Italian place.”
