Can you get unpretentious in Ponsonby?


Yes you can!  At El Sizzling Chorizo Argentinian BBQ,  a BBQ is a BBQ is a BBQ. On a recent trip to Auckland, New Zealand a good friend of mine (formerly from Buenos Aires but now an Auckland local) took us to Ponsonby Central for lunch. I was told there would be a lot of meat, it would be salty and served with bread, garlic and salad. He said the smell of the food reminded him of his childhood.

The mixed platter was great (lamb, pork, beef, chicken), enjoyed on a table outside, basked in late summer sun, with some Peroni’s and good company.

  1. Serendipity: I was talking to my teenaged son about this place a few minutes ago, and suggesting we go for dinner. Thanks.
