Welcome to Cheapflights

We know that sometimes you just need a turbo-charged injection of sugar or grease to get you moving.

When nothing else will hit the spot, these are the places you need to hit up for your calorific feed. No judgement.

We proudly introduce 14 of New Zealand‘s fattest feeds…

Al’s DeliAuckland

Where: City Road, Auckland, 1010

Where to start? Maybe the poutine burger with brioche bun? Meatball hoagie? Classic ribs and fries? Pierogi? Whatever you choose, leave room for apple pie fries at the end.

Fed Deli, Auckland

Where: 86 Federal St Auckland, 1010 The Fed has quickly claimed its stake as one of the city’s go-to establishments – open long hours, a unique menu and funky fitout. It’s one of the few places where you can find poutine – that famous Canadian dish of fries with gravy and cheese curds. Or for the ultimate indulgence try the Fed Grilled Truffle n Cheese: gruyere, Swiss and cheese curds, toasted with truffle salt. Round things off with a delectable dessert – the cheesecakes and pies here are to die for.

4 way / 3 way I dunno. It’s bloody delicious though! #sweetas #sweetteeth #nycheesecake A photo posted by The Fed (@federaldelicatessen) on

White Lady, Auckland

Where: 18 Commerce Street, Auckland 1010

The last word in late night/early morning eats. Their enormous towering burgers (go for the king size) are calling your name…

Orleans, Auckland

Where: 48 Customs Street East, Britomart, Auckland 1010 Try the chicken and waffle – a mindblowing mix of sweet and savoury. Best rounded off with a generous slice of cheesecake.

Circus Circus, Auckland

Where: 447 Mt Eden Rd, Mt Eden, Auckland 1024 There’s a reason this Mt Eden cafe has been around as long as it has. Great for all occasions, from brunch to late night snacks. You can’t go wrong with banoffee pie, creme brulee, tiramisu or an epic lemon meringue pie.

Toto, Auckland

Where: 53 Nelson Street, Auckland 1010 Pizza by the metre. Need we say more?!

Besos Latinos, Auckland

Where: 39 Elliott Street, Auckland 1010 Go for the footlong taco at lunch, or at dinner, the wagyu steak with chorizo sausages, haloumi and an empanada.

Moustache, Auckland

Where: 12 Wellesley St West, Auckland 1010

This milk and cookie bar is proof that good things come in small packages. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu but for a super special treat try the Snickers or the marshmallow & Oreo cookie, perhaps. If mixing savoury and sweet doesn’t offend your tastebuds, there’s even a bacon and chocolate cookie. Bonus: You can feel good knowing they’re made with cage-free eggs and premium ingredients.

It’s lunch time…which means time for a Bacon Chocolate Chip at Moustache /a>

City Markets, Wellington

Where: Corner Barnett St and Cable St, Te Aro, Wellington 6011 Head along to the Sunday city markets to get your hands on one of Martin Bosley’s famous bacon butties – the ultimate sandwich for the morning after a big night.

San Fran, Wellington

Where: 171 Cuba St Te Aro, Wellington 6011 The bar snacks menu here is short but sweet. Fried delights include curly fries, fried gherkins and the battered corn dogs. Eat your heart out.

Portlander, Wellington

Where: Cnr of Whitmore and Featherston Streets, Wellington 6011

If meat is what you’re after, this steakhouse will satisfy those cravings. There’s a range of cuts to suit all tastes but it’s hard to go past the long bone OP Rib.

Sweet Mother’s Kitchen, Wellington

Where: 5 Courtenay Place, Te Aro, Wellington 6011 Start with the curly fries, then ease into some deep fried Cajun prawns or chicken. Wash it down with a peanut butter milkshake. You might need a lie down afterwards…

Cafe Gusto, Wanaka

Where: 1 Lakeside Road, Wanaka 9305

When in the South, a cheese roll has got to be on your bucket list – at their simplest it’s all about bread and cheese but onion often features … that or the classic onion soup + evaporated milk combo. A good place to try them is at Cafe Gusto in Wanaka, a short drive from Queenstown – it’s a hotspot with both locals and visitors.

Bacon Buttie StationDunedin

Where: 12 Ward St, Dunedin 9016

What started as a van at the Otago Farmers Market has blossomed into something more. You can’t miss the flying Bacon Buttie man sign. Along with the classic bacon sandwich, they also sell steak butties and sausage butties, along with … all-you-can-eat breakfast on Sundays.

Any old takeaway shop

The deep fried Mars bar (or deep fried Moro bar) is a staple on the menu of many a humble takeaway, alongside the fish, chips and burgers.
