North of the city center, Merivale Mall has a range of classy boutiques and stores. Try Quinns for women's clothing and Bella Silver for jewelry; Rouche features home-grown New Zealand designs, and fashion store Storm has relocated here from High Street. Vincent has lots of colorful, fun fashion gear and you might find something handy for the kitchen at the Homestore. Little India does a good lunch. Outside on Papanui Road and surrounding streets the design stores and restaurants continue. You can also pick up a delicious takeaway meal to heat up in a microwave from the Traiteur (on the corner of Aikmans). You can also buy chopping boards here, an interesting souvenir of the city, crafted from wood from homes demolished in the earthquakes.
