Federal Delicatessen @ Auckland

Absolutely one of our favourite Auckland eateries (& clearly popular among the locals too), this NYC-inspired delicatessen delves into a smorgasbord of Jewish staples, with plenty of North American crowd-pleasers in the mix. The matzo ball soup is tasty & textured; the latkes with lox, creme fraiche & dill are well worth the calories; the bagel with house-made pastrami, Swiss cheese, habanero mustard & pickles is perfectly constructed & proportioned. Have the Montreal poutine for snacking, a lovely pumpkin pie to wrap up, & cocktails infused with Dr Brown's NY Cherry Soda & Cola Nut to wash everything down.

  3. The question that always crops up in my mind whenever I see your post on Auckland is, why are all the awesome cafes arriving after my departure?

    I like it how Auckland has adopted more of the nightlife. It wasn't active during my time there. The meals that Federal Delicatessen offers on the menu are superb. I don't see much of Montreal poutine here - and the last one I had carried a spicy and cheesy twang in it, lol.

    1. Ciana: haha - it might be auckland's way of saying, come back! but you're right, auckland's restaurants were relatively quiet at night compared to lunch - i could always find a table at night, but daytime was tricky ;) it's not easy to find good poutine in kl too ... so i knew i had to order it here! :D
