YOU FOUND US, COME ON IN.

Miss Clawdy is your soul food haven. Inspired by Lloyd Price’s 1952 new orleans hit single, ‘Lawdy Miss Clawdy’, we feed hungry hearts with edible goodness wrapped in a lil’ southern magic.

Be warned, Miss Clawdy’s kitchen ain’t shy when it comes to cooking. Flavours are big, playful and have attitude, just like Miss Clawdy herself.

Miss Clawdy praises the soul, heart and essence of sharing derived from southern cuisine.

We appreciate you stopping by, see y’all soon.

    • Thanksgivin’ at Miss Clawdy's 28-Nov-2014

      In true Southern style, we celebrated Thanksgivin' by sayin’ thanks and givin’ back to those who need it the most. For the entire day of Thanksgivin', we invited our fellow diners to bring in a canned good in exchange for a Miss Clawdy special slice of pumpkin pie. At the end of the evening, we donated all of them cans to the very grateful folk down at the Auckland City Mission. A very special Thanksgivin’ menu of edible Southern goodness was also crafted for the day. We can’t wait for next year’s Thanksgivin’ celebrations.

    • Miss Clawdy turns the big ONE 22-Sep-2014

      Sugar, birthdays are a big deal round here so when we turned the big one we wanted to share our birthday cake with all of y'all. We partnered with cake queen Karla Goodwin of Bluebells Cakery to create our one-of-a-kind Southern-inspired birthday cake; a magical hummingbird cupcake with salted caramel, vanilla cream cheese icing topped with a lil' pecan praline candy. To really help share the social love we invited everybody to enjoy a piece of our birthday cake then pay for it using social media by posting a sweet snap on Instagram - we called it Miss Clawdy’s #cakecurrency, a NZ first. Now, what do we do for our big number 2!

    • Dress like a lady, drink like a man 01-Jul-2014

      In honour of National Bourbon Day, we decided to give the typically male dominated world of whiskey a mighty fine shake up. We created NZ’s first ladies-only bourbon and whiskey cocktail list. To shed a lil’ light on the history of whiskey, in the 1800’s it was indeed women who owned a number of bourbon distilleries and went on to build iconic brands including Bushmills, Laphroaig and Woodford Reserve. Miss Clawdy celebrated this by inviting ladies to light a lil’ fire in their bellies during winter and enjoy some fine concoctions such as The Southern Santorini - an original Miss Clawdy black magic potion made of bourbon infused with cherries, vanilla pods, star anise and cloves. Here’s to the ladies.

    • Mardi Gras brings Southern magic to Auckland 18-Feb-2014

      Y’all know that round here food means business. So to celebrate Mardi Gras (otherwise known as Fat Tuesday) for three weeks we put on an indulgent feast of rich food, good lookin’ carnival dancers and one big ol’ Mardi Gras beaded tree. Our kitchen cooked up one hell of a festive storm, complete with a hay-roasted whole suckling pig, aged beef & bone marrow pork burgers and Bloody Mary cocktails to mention a few. Our friends were invited to light up the night by throwing their colourful beaded necklaces onto our famous Mardi Gras beaded tree, then Instagramming it to be in to win a night of Southern hospitality with three friends, all on the house! DJs Nick D and Bobby Brazuka were also there spinning carnival tunes and convinced y’all to dance like nobody was watchin’.
