Whitebait Capital of the World

I’m travelling through the Land of the Long White Cloud at the moment and chanced upon the charmingly named Mokau. Located on the west coast of the North island,  Mokau is known as the Whitebait Capital of the World.

The jade waters produce a prodigious amount of whitebait, which locals  prefer to eat as part of a fritter or omelette.

Mokau is quite daggy but surrounded by gorgeous scenery and you are never short of a good feed.
