Japan meets Peru in New Zealand
Behind a very discreet entrance on Auckland's Ponsonby Rd eating and drinking strip, the slim and stylish interior of Azabu is enlivened only by big format photos of Tokyo, and the emphasis is rightly on the fusion Japanese-Peruvian dishes coming from the kitchen. Known as Nikkei cuisine, standout dishes on Azabu's eclectic menu include a tuna sashimi tostada with fiery wasabi and jalapeno, and tiger prawns with an aji amarillo mayonnaise. The Asian influence also extends to the cocktail list—try the Respirado del Fuego caipirinha with chilli-infused cacaçha, lime and basil—and from Wednesday to Friday, Azabu offers good-value lunches of donburi rice bowls and Japanese-style tacos.
