Christchurch Popular Spots

Explore The World Of Food Right Here In Christchurch

Christchurch Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknow›n printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

China: Miss Peppercorn
If you're in the mood for authentic Chinese food, look no further than Sumner’s Miss Peppercorn.

While you visit, why not treat your taste buds to something new? Try the traditional duck head!
