Fire and more specifially, the story of Maui bringing fire to the world is the inspiration behind the 'Horopito Fried Chicken' dish. Horopito is a native New Zealand pepper tree and its leaves have a hot peppery (or fiery) taste.  These spicy, crispy fried chicken pieces are served with horopito peri peri mayo & kamo kamo pickle. A vegetarian option is available with crispy cauliflower pieces.

Pūhā & Pākehā offer modern Māori fusion cuisine with Kiwi hospitality. This is an opportunity to taste Māori kai and native New Zealand ingredients in a relaxed, casual setting. The 'pūhā' refers to rēwena bread, horopito pepper, hāngi cooking and 'Pākehā' means any modern flavour or cooking method. The brand is about inclusiveness, bringing two cultures together, adding one thing to another to create something new. And that is modern Māori fusion street food to be enjoyed at markets and events all over Auckland.
