I posted earlier about Khyber Pass Road, have not had a chance to explore it yet, but now I have a specific craving: top notch Szechuan. We have no food limitations and are willing to pay a reasonable amount. We are just fine with dives. Our goal is optimal deliciousness. For some perspective, I am a New Yorker by birth and have been living in Auckland CBD for about 2 months. We do not have a car so it needs to be bus-able (sometimes we rent a car so suggestions requiring driving are fine too).
Thanks in advance!
