While in Auckland this week I heard about a new restaurant serving Canadian food and beer from my fellow Canadian friend Kristin!

Determined to get a taste from home, I walked 20mins uphill in my work clothes and high heels in search for Al’s Deli on Queen St. The only place in New Zealand serving Canadian beer, I couldn’t pass up a cold Molson Canadian (even though it’s not my favorite Canadian beer). Tempted by the Canadian menu I opted for the standard poutine which was as good as it looks as the owner is a former Canadian from Montreal!

I must have missed the ‘Moose Ears’ (similar to Beaver Tails) on the menu, so I have a reason to go back again next time I’m in Auckland! Hopefully Jordan can join me next time so he can fill his craving for a Caesar that he’s had since we left Canada.
