Just terrible. Despite being pretty close to India (relative to the US), they make the shittiest Indian food. About a fifth of the city is Indian, but they can't make a curry that doesn't taste like watered down spaghetti sauce. And what else? No Taco Bell, Chipotle, or Qdoba. I don't even have to say anything else about that. I could get a $20 burrito that's about half the size of a Chipotle one, but obviously that's a shit deal. The only conceivable alternative is a kebab, which is basically a lamb-filled tortilla which somehow makes you hungrier than you were before you ate it. Also, the ranch dressing is terrible. It's just bland and watery. Finally, the pizza is just terrible. It's about half the size, twice the cost, and without tomato sauce, but not like a good white pizza, it's just terrible.
So you know what's great? Being woken up by the wind. Because that happened to me regularly. Wellington basically has consistent 25 mph winds, with gusts up to 100 mph. And you never know where it'll come from, since it changes so often. You walk around a corner, and BAM you're almost knocked down. It's so windy the toilet actually has a tide. I didn't realize there was a correlation between the two, but yes, when it becomes really windy the toilet does in fact make waves.
