Yesterday saw the opening of “Down the Road” in Kensington, Whangarei. Justine and Joseph Start have spent recent months preparing their new Eatery and Deli and the food is proudly local.
Down the Road is about celebrating the local treasures of Northland. The inspiration behind the name is that we love this beautiful country for all the quintessential elements that make it unique. We know that wherever we find ourselves, there is a wonderful bounty to be discovered just ‘down the road’. (from the website)
When you choose to eat at Down the Road you are also supporting a lot of local producers. These include Grinning Gecko Cheese, Mahoe Farms Cheese and Hydro Healthy to name just a few.
If you support local food, eating at “Down the Road” is a great option.
