Eating out to help others

I was blown away today by an amazing little restaurant on Anzac Drive in Auckland called 'ngopi'. This little gem of a place is staffed by volunteers so that profits can go to charities that make a difference to people's lives - Habitat for humanity and the A21 Campaign. How charitable is that!

'ngopi' [ ngo-pee, ngo-pi ] as the website says, can mean:

1. an Indonesian term for drinking coffee
2. an invitation to get together, catch up and chat ("ngopi yuk!")
3. an informal meeting place either for business and/or with friends

Well all of the above, works for me.

The atmosphere is simple and upcycled, but done cleverly and with style and the Indonesian food is tasty, fresh and affordable. I wish them every success.
