After a long day working, I mean traveling around New Zealand, it’s Happy Hour time. What’s my go-to? The same as for many other tourists and locales, frites and aioli (a garlic mayonnaise).
Alongside is a Monteith’s beer to wash it down. You’ll find only Monteith’s beer on tap in a lot of locations in New Zealand. I went with their Original Ale in this shot.
Another day, more frites and aioli deliciousness.
When I’m not in the mood for beer, I go with my favorite of Monteith’s, their Crushed Pear Cider. I need them shipped to the states stat.
A desert beverage at Happy Hour? Why not? Nothing like a good old iced chocolate to relax you. I won’t say how many of these, from how many different places I’ve had in NZ haha.
On a chilly late afternoon, I’ll be on the lookout for kumara soup. Kumara is a Māori term, meaning sweet potato.
If you can’t make Happy Hour and need a meal on the go, head to the local dairy and get a meat pie and V Energy drink. Time for some steak & cheese meat pies. Who’s that guy with the camera reflecting off the sliding glass door.
What are your Happy Hour beverage and snacks of choice when in New Zealand? Australia?
