THE RETURN OF RAD
397 MT EDEN RD, MT EDEN
The filled rolls at Rad are so good. Crunchy baguettes, generously filled, the best one being grandma’s banh mi — Viet-style pork, pickled veg and a thick swipe of chicken cognac pâté. We recently ate beef cheeks, just falling apart, and a delicious dish of smoked kahawai and peas topped with a runny poached egg. The little touches, like water laced with chamomile and really good Rocket coffee, are what make Rad so special.
BEST FOR: Breakfast after a hike up
Mt Eden. Rocket coffee
