Encased in a spacious, quirky and modern fit out, the bustling spot features a sprawling 'gram-worthy mural with touches of neon with a curated toe-tapping playlist in the background.
Rude Boy is the latest venture from Auckland foodie gods, Fran and Aaron Carson, and it does not disappoint. The masterminds behind legendary eateries such as Winona Forever and formally Little Sister and Hello Friends & Allies, they recently unveiled Friday I’m In Love. Now the duo shows no sign of slowing down soon on their mission to spread delicious throughout Auckland!
Taking a glance at the menu (that is If you can draw your eyes from the wicked fit out) you’ll find masterpiece after masterpiece. With day and evening selections on offer, the tastetastic fun can continue allll day long.
Because chocolate for breakfast is never a bad idea, don’t miss your chance to try the brownie waffle. Yes, you read that correctly. Just imagine the crunch of a waffle paired with rich chocolate topped with a zesty ginger crunch ice cream and seasonal tropical fruits. Talk about a sweet start to your day!
Prepare to be amazed, because the Persian pork meatball baguette is next-level delicious. Fair warning, we gave this gem a try and could not stop at just one bite! Packed into a pretzel baguette with provolone and pesto this sammie is sure to soon become one of Auckland's must-try.
If meatballs don’t tickle your fancy, Nonno’s chicken schnitzel will no doubt have your belly rumbling. With layers of oozing melted cheese and puttanesca sauce encased in kumara sourdough, it’s worth the second (or third, we don’t judge) cheat day.
Paired with bubbling brews, chilled soda, fresh pressed juices, wine and beer to boot, it’s your one-stop-spot no matter what you’re in the mood for.
Set to open up its doors this Wednesday, there’s no doubt Auckland is set to fall for the charms of this Rude Boy, because it'd be rude not to!
