"The two most important restaurateurs in Auckland right now are Al Brown and Megan May. Al Brown you will know of course -- every casual eatery that opens in this city for the next 10 years will be judged against his flawless restaurant, Depot. Megan May owns the flagship Unbakery in Ponsonby, as well as sister outlets in Kingsland and Britomart. The waitlist at these places can be almost as long as at Depot. Her food is most famous for being raw, but that's only one of the ways in which it stands out. She uses no meat or wheat, no dairy or egg, no refined sugars, salts or carbohydrates. Her menu's packed with heavy lifters -- foods that provide a high ratio of nutrition to calories. And yet it tastes incredible. You would eat it if there were no health benefits, just for the flavours, textures and colours. Her tacos taste as delicious as the ones at Mexico -- they just happen to be extremely good for you." --NZ Herald
