Christchurch Farmers Market @ Riccarton Bush – christchurchfarmersmarket.co.nz
Open from 9am-12pm every Saturday this is my go to activity whenever I have visitors or want to indulge in a delicious breakfast. Posh Porridge is a constant favourite as is Cakes By Anna, Essex Bakery (must try a Beesting!) and Bacon Bros just to name a few. There is also great coffee and lots of seasonal produce available.
Bodhi Tree – thebodhitree.co.nz
Tucked away in the Fendalton Village the Bodhi Tree is Christchurch’s favourite Burmese restaurant. Every time I have been there it is packed and for good reason. Their dishes are fresh fragrant and perfect for sharing. I can not go past the Tea Leaf Salad, Shredded Chicken Salad and their Marinated Lamb Skewers. It is also BYO so you can take your favourite bottle of wine along.
King of Snake – kingofsnake.co.nz
By legendary Tony Astle King of Snake is everything you want out of Asian dining. It’s decor is sharp, has an impressive drinks list (including cocktails) and more importantly the food is fantastic. I cannot go past their duck salads or the beef cheek pengang and you always have to order wontons and spinach leaves for the table.
Hello Sunday – https://www.facebook.com/HelloSundayChristchurchCafe
Hello Sunday is the perfect spot for brunch. The staff are friendly and fun and the food is fantastic. It is a great way to start any weekend day. Located beside the Colombo Mall you can always pop over for a sneaky look around the shops once you have finished up.
