The latest food trends in Auckland's dining scene 

In the search for Auckland's best restaurant, which will be awarded the prestigious title of Metro Peugeot Restaurant of the Year 2018 on April 30, one of Metro's judges shares some of the latest food trends.

Finding the city’s best restaurants is a rigorous process and involves our judges anonymously eating many, many meals over a period of three months followed by fierce debate across several meetings.

We consider the merits of more than 100 restaurants each year and with the number of restaurants in the city increasing at an exponential rate in the past 12 months, competition is tough. 

On part two of our journey to visit the five finalists in this year’s Peugeot People’s Choice Award for Best Destination Restaurant, we travelled to Kumeu’s The Tasting Shed, where one of the Metro judges talks about a few of the dining trends she’s been seeing recently.
