Puhoi General Store
At Puhoi General Store, located in the settlement of Puhoi next to a river of the same name, Brown ordered a classic New Zealand treat: oysters and chips. “The lady at the counter told me they were out of mussels, but assured me that the oysters from the mouth of the Puhoi River were even better,” he recalls. “They were firm and subtly sweet with a slight fruitiness that reminds me of sea urchin, and just as I swallow, there’s a briny bite on the back end.”
