Spoilt for choice of eat­ing spots

What do you love about San­dring­ham?

It’s just a short bus ride to work in Royal Oak and the food in the sub­urb and the sur­round­ing ar­eas is great. Al­ways spoilt for choice when it comes to eat­ing out.

How long have you lived in San­dring­ham and where are you orig­i­nally from? I have lived here for about 21⁄ years now. I am orig­i­nally from Man­gere and I’ll al­ways be a South Auck­land boy at heart. What do you like least? The worst thing is the house prices. Just up the road from where I live, a house went for $1 mil­lion and there is no way me and my part­ner could af­ford that.

Where’s the best place to buy din­ner in your area?

I am al­ways par­tial to noodles from Yes Noodles on San­dring­ham Rd, also you can­not go wrong with Par­adise for In­dian. In Kings­land I am a fan of Grill and Shakes.

And who does the best fish ‘n chips?

My usual take­away joint is Bilbo’s Take­away on Do­min­ion Rd.

Who

is

the

Kiwi

you ad­mire most – and why?

UFC fighter Mark Hunt. He grew up in Man­gere like me and made the most of his gifts to be­come a world renowned fighter and to sup­port his fam­ily. He is also one of the most funny and hum­ble guys you’ll ever meet.

If I was Auck­land’s mayor I’d ...

Look at try­ing to fix Auck­land’s public trans­port woes and the ris­ing cost of hous­ing. I would also look at hold­ing more com­mu­nity-based events around the city and in­crease sup­port for artists and smaller arts fes­ti­vals like Chro­ma­con.

When I’ve got a few free hours I like to ...

Draw comics. Though it’s fun, it’s still my job so my spare time is usu­ally spent drawing.

The spot I’d rec­om­mend to tourists is ...

When it comes to over­seas vis­i­tors, I usu­ally rec­om­mend vis­it­ing the tun­nels at North Head in Devon­port. I love run­ning around the tun­nels in the dark. The mayor should look at try­ing to fix Auck­land’s public trans­port woes and the ris­ing cost of hous­ing.
