They say nothing but a brick, wood-fuelled oven can seal in the authentic flavour of a true Neapolitan pizza. Lucky then for the residents of Outlook Mission Bay with Dante’s Pizzeria opening just across the road at the stylish new ‘Eatery at Eastridge’.
The pizzas are cooked in a brick oven, in this case, a bright red tile mosaic version (and the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere), for just 90 seconds or less. They use only the best Italian and freshest NZ ingredients to create some of the finest pizzas available in Auckland!
If not everyone in your family is a pizza nut, don’t worry because there’s plenty of options to choose from! One of the Eatery’s best features is the shared tables area; groups can order from any of the vendors but still sit together to eat.
New Zealand has a reputation for chefs who source fresh local produce to recreate or re-imagine dishes from their home countries, and the Eatery at Eastridge allows Outlook Mission Bay residents to experience these flavours of the world just across the road.
With 400 car parks sitting idle every night, and a willing local population looking for exotic offerings to complement the current Eastern Bays line up, the Eastridge team decided to convert two retail tenancies into a food & beverage precinct and have managed to attract a high-class lineup.
Operators of existing Auckland favourite’s have moved in and are treating the local punters to a delightful culinary journey. Many locals have taken advantage of the sunny aspect to enjoy a drink and dinner with friends, relishing the choice and flexibility on offer.
From Uncle Man’s Malaysian curries, to Boy and Bird’s obsession with all things chicken, there’s sure to be a dish for all taste’s. There’s Temakeria’s Brazilian take on sushi, and if you want a meat fix follow your nose to the charcoal grill at Noa to enjoy smokey BBQ and burgers. For those with a sweet tooth, head to The Pie Piper for decadent American style cakes and desserts including their famous Doornuts that have a cult-like following Auckland wide.
Best of all for Outlook residents, it’s all on your doorstep and waiting to be enjoyed when you move in this August.
