New Zealand—and Auckland
in particular—is home to a sizable Asian population, which means treats such as green-tea and red-bean buns are readily available. La Couronne is a Taiwanese-style bakery with French sophistication, serving goodies as adorable as they are delectable: Think watermelon-shaped cake and a rainbow of macarons
. Find it on a small side street near the Auckland Art Gallery and other favorite Kiwi shops like Pauanesia and Unity Books.
