Must-eats in NZ

ekim256 | Jan 2, 201109:10 PM

Hi everyone,
I am about to start my travels around New Zealand for the next month. First 10 days I will have a car and will be travelling around the North Island, and for the next 20 I will be travelling the second with a friend - we still aren't sure if we're going to rent a car or do a combination of bus & hitch hiking so I'm not 100% sure what we're going to hit aside from the major ones (i.e. Queenstown, Christchurch, Wellington, Abel Tasman, Franz Josef, etc.)
I was wondering if there are certain eats that I should keep my eye out for? Not necessarily specific restaurants (although you're welcome to throw some suggestions in of course!) but special things that I should try that are specific to NZ? For instance, I made a point to try Moreton Bay crabs while in Australia as well as yabbies, meat pie, and bugs. Besides lamb, what should I sample? :-)
