After a long first day in New Zealand, I knew exactly what I wanted for dinner. I went to BannSang in Auckland. Bibimbap is a Korean rice dish made in a hot stone bowl with lots of vegetables, egg, meat or tofu and spices. The rice is on the bottom of the bowl and some of the rice crisps and browns from the hot stone to add an amazing crunch to the dish.
The Gin Room in Auckland has various selections of gin and tonics and I actually found a drink that I liked.
