Interesting eats in Ponsonby, Taupo, Rotorua, Napier area?

Looking for a few hints of interesting food places on the North Island for our upcoming trip:
Fun and unusual food in the Ponsonby area of Auckland.
Good food with local produce and wines in Napier and Hawkes Bay.
Somewhere with personality among the tourist haunts of Rotorua and Taupo.
We don't want anywhere too formal, but we do like good, adventurous food cooked with care. Smiles are good too.

Thanks, and I'll report back on interesting finds, as I have before.
