2) Sun World Chinese Restaurant 新世界海鲜酒家 @2 York Street, New Market, Auckland 1023 NZ.

After having cheese, cheese, cheese, chips and chips for every meal, the Malaysian monkeys were craving for some very-Asian-food, even though when I first stepped into NZ I smirked at mum’s anticipation and idea of eating Dim Sum, 2 weeks later I found myself demanding, “lets go eat Dim Sum”.
