F.G. Smith Eatery (9a Ossian Street, Ahuriri)
Wow, talk about being behind the eight ball. It took me SO long to visit F.G. Smith Eatery, that it was no longer the new kid on the block. However, it was satisfying seeing how much this cute little place in the backstreets of Ahuriri has absolutely flourished and certainly become a popular name about town (popular enough that even the prime-minister was eating there at the same time as us – #claimtofame).
It had a cabinet full of relatively inexpensive eats, and then a trendy Asian influenced menu that had breakfast and lunch options ranging between $10 – 25. There were a range of table options; from booths to round tables, to high tables and just your usuals. A massive doorway led into the shop next door,which sold a range of high end fashion items.
For lunch, our group ordered a wide variety of dishes. Everyone spoke really highly of their food, the coffee was delicious and the service great. It’s the sort of place that I would have no hesitation in recommending to others.
