Best restaurant in Hamilton, is a phrase used by many online reviewers to describe this next place so we had to try it for ourselves. Gothenburg Restaurant which sat right next to the mighty Waikato river was where we stopped off for dinner during our stay in Hamilton city.

To pair with the "best restaurant in Hamilton" we figured we'd also stop at the legendary dessert joint, Duck Island Ice Cream. Some people have claimed it as the best ice cream in New Zealand and so we definitely had to try it. So many flavours, so little stomach but we still managed to devour 3 scoops. Sorry for the poor dub on this section, the original audio was unusable!
