Auckland's Best DYOs
Illustrations by Dayna Patel
A DYO (Drink Your Own, because we’re all selfish alcoholics) is a civilised and classy affair that involves $7.99 pinot gris and whatever friends aren’t moany pricks about drinking a whole bottle of wine. If you have those key ingredients, you’re set for an above mediocre dining experience.
Malaysian ∙ K Road
Corkage: $3 for wine and $1 for Beers (!!)
-Great for a tight budget - roti and curry is only ten bucks.
South Indian ∙ Grey Lynn
Things to call home about:
-Close to stumble to Pons town
Cantonese ∙ Kingsland
Don’t come unless:
-You have lots of friends and live to make waiters’ jobs actual death.
-You were born with the ability to share your food.
Italian ∙ Parnell
You heard it here first:
-Pizza. Pasta. People. Parnell. Pigeons (outside).
-Don’t have high expectations.
Korean BBQ ∙ CBD
Don’t tell Sarah but:
-$24 for all you can eat.
-You might not get drunk, but you won’t need to eat again until you don’t enrol for postgrad.
