We had a chat with self titled Millennial Ciaran Jack, one of the Wellington Avocado Toast Awards team about all this WATA! (Check it out below).

    Wellington Avocado Toast Awards Interview

Why WATA? Well, most of us smash our wallets on avo toast brunches instead of saving up for a deposit on a mortgage, so now you have another reason to keep doing this, and we all know that Welly loves to put its food on a plate for the public to rate. 

During the whole month of March, all avo toast entries will be put to the test. With 21 fantastic local eateries all showcasing their skills and deliciousness on a plate, you’re going to need to plan to get around them all, but don’t forget to get online and vote for your favourite in the Public Choice award at wata.nz/vote – The judges will work to crown the overall smashing winner.

“Avo toast has become a staple of the Kiwi eating experience,” says Alex Matthews, a fellow avocado toast fanatic and WATAs founder. “This new award ceremony, despite its tongue-and-cheek angle, is really about bringing New Zealanders together to celebrate our incredible creativity, passion for good food, and to elevate our local industry.”

Inspired by top-tier toast, this competition is born out of curiosity – is there better toast out there? It’s a tough ask, but in the spirit of inspiring bigger, better and more smashing avocado experiences, the bar is set. Take a look at all the tasty toasts of our previous winners.

This is a non-profit initiative brought to you by our principal sponsors and resident avocado fans, Xequals and Obvious Brand Partners.
