Roadtrip to the Coromandel + Pepper Tree Restaurant and Bar ♥

Last week I went down to the Coromandel with my family for a spontaneous road trip. We took Cookie along and it was pretty fun seeing how beautiful rural New Zealand is. Or countryside New Zealand. Whichever you prefer huehue.

Anyways, here are some photos of the trip!

Warning: Extreme photo-heavy post!

Cookie knows how to drive!
Awww look at her eyes. ♥
Sleeping beauty.
*Insert sad music.*
Mummy and Cookie! ♥
What a beautiful day.

Look how beautiful the water is.
This doesn't look real.

I really like this photo and I don't know why.
What a beautiful sight. 

I love New Zealand.

Wow much beauty.
Road to nowhere...
The Coromandel Peninsula is so freaking long.

Yay! Finally reached Coromandel Town!
Super vintage hotel huehuehue.
Dinner time at Pepper Tree. ♥
Yum yum! I ordered an eye fillet steak with wild mushrooms, onion relish, creamed spinach and potato pompoms. Yum!
The coconut cream mussels look super fancy.
My little brother's pork spare ribs tasted pretty good. The potato chips were amazeballs.
Yay! My eye fillet! Look how good it looks!
This was honestly like perfection on a plate. It was so freaking good.
Asdfghjkl this tasted better than it looked!
The mushrooms were a 10/10 even though I HATE mushrooms with a passion.
The onion relish was so flavourful and sweet and tangy and just everything asdfghjkl.
The creamed spinach tasted super nice and rich.
The steak itself was cooked exactly how I wanted it and was juicy and moist and tender.
Oh and the potato pom poms?

Amazing. Beautifully crunchy and fluffy at the same time. 

I would DEFINITELY recommend ordering this if you're ever there!

My precious.
Light in the dark.
Last bit of sunshine.

Just before sunset!

That's all there is for today! Sorry for the super photo-heavy post! I hope you enjoyed seeing what I've been up to recently! x

Lots of Love,
