A submarine sandwich prepared by Urb. Pretty darn tasty too! This quiz simply lists Urb's "sandwich districts" which make delivery easier.

As far as I know, suburbs are the area outside of city's limit, but is urban, and several people live there. As an example, the parts which are counted in New York's urban area, but are not one of the 5 boroughs, like some of the areas east of Queens and Brooklyn on the Long Island.

Not really. That's the meaning of 'suburb' in the USA, but not in New Zealand. In New Zealand, suburbs are parts that form the city.

Nice work Gassu. For your reference, there is a recently released data source for NZ localities which should interest you. In cities, it is generally representing 'suburbs': https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/104830-fire-and-emergency-nz-localities/

This is probably the quiz which took the longest to make in comparison to the number of people who took it. Great map, but I'm just not an expert on Auckland. XD

Fabulous! Got 160, even after the answers came up I still hadn't heard of some of these. Glad I got Opaheke since I live there :)

These aren't exactly suburbs-some may be outside the purview of the central city, but the CBD and the area around that aren't suburbs-they are directly part of the city. Maybe a better title would be districts/neighborhoods of Auckland?

Districts or neighborhoods are known in New Zealand as suburbs. Suburbs are part of the city proper.

Also I'm fairly sure they're all under the purview of the Auckland Council since the merger of formerly independent cities in 2010.
