136-146 Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby, Auckland 1011, New Zealand
Eight restaurants, 6 produce sellers, 5 retail stores, and 1 cooking school. When Ponsonby Central was first mooted no one really knew how successful it would become, a de facto melting pot and one place where everyone can agree on for a bite...

One of the first to jump on the "slider" wagon (for the uninitiated, sliders are mini-buns), Tin Soldier scores marks for both its position on Ponsonby Rd—the sunny afternoon side—and its great food. A cross between a gastro-pub and a welcoming...

As with all good Ponsonby restaurants the first thing that hits you is the decor, followed closely by the waft of delicious food. It's the combinations of flavours that stand out here, some a little unexpected and others old familiar favourites....

Even the burgers in Ponsonby are flash. BurgerFuel, a home grown burger franchise that has expanded to six countries and is now listed on the Stock Exchange, grew from this one store in Ponsonby. With burger names like "Ring Burner", "Bastard" and...
