The Verdict

You can’t call yourself a true Aucklander until you’ve dined in the much-loved Tanuki’s Cave. Literally located under Queen Street, the Japanese yakitori and kushiage bar dishes up some of the best skewers in town. Located a hop, step and a jump from Q Theatre, The Classic, Basement Theatre and the mighty Civic, it’s the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat before your show starts. We love their deep-fried mashed kumara balls coated in almond chips—trust us, it tastes better than it sounds. And don’t leave without trying their gooey deep-fried banana dessert.
