Why come to Christchurch? After the earthquake, most of Christchurch’s restaurants went down along with the cities infrastructure. However, this led to the emergence of newfound culture in the heart of Christchurch. We now have farmer’s markets, local cuisine, and international foods. Christchurch has so much more to offer than what meets the eye!

Fine dining

When it comes to fine dining foods in Christchurch you’re spoiled for choice! Try Buddha Stix for an authentic Thai cuisine to invigorate your taste buds. But be careful extra hot will test your limits. If you’re more of a fan of the European cuisine head over to the Curators house for traditional Spanish dishes. From small tapas to hearty meals the Curators house had you covered. Are you a sweet tooth? Try award-winning Strawberry Fare which specializes in tantalizing deserts. Only if you dare try the Ultimate Chocolate dessert for Chocolate lovers. Or for that tropical hit try to Tropical Coconut Freeze. Whatever your taste buds are searching for Christchurch doesn’t disappoint.

Farmers markets

Are you a lover of organic raw food? Does the idea of local produce take your fancy? Visit one of many Farmers Markets in Christchurch. Hop over the Port Hills and try the Lyttelton Port Farmer’s Market. You’ll find fresh fish, Maori art, and much more at this exquisite market. Fancy a larger market? Try Riccarton Bush Market close to the city center. If you’re looking for fresh produce, homemade goods, or even fine foods you’ve got to pay this market a visit. I recommend you visit one of these traditional kiwi farmers markets to immerse yourself in not only New Zealand culture but international culture too. Give Christchurch’s culinary experience a go!
