Taste of Home
Taste of Home is a hideaway bolthole in Vivian Street for extremely delicious food. Expect all your moreish street-food favourites, including dumplings, braised pork with loaded fries and Kewpie mayo, spiced tofu with shitake mushrooms, and dan dan noodles.
Yo po mian is a dish of hand-pulled noodles and a house speciality you’re unlikely to find anywhere else in Wellington. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, the fried taro and kūmara (sweet potato) balls made with condensed milk and peanuts are top shelf.
Students and city workers make a beeline for this place every lunchtime, hoping to nab one of the five or so seats inside. If there’s a queue, join it. Takeaway is also popular, and there’s a park right across the road.
