Mulan and her mum Fa Li were in Auckland the same time as me and we decided to go for lunch around Britomart. Mulan and her mum have been here before and because I could not go with them last time (as I was also in Auckland when they went) they decided to go again. I think the menu changes on a daily basis at this place and I also noticed that they update their website with the same daily menu as well.
Chicken Liver Pate, Pickled Shallot & Peach, Hawkes Bay Organic Chicken Liver
Decided to go for something light for lunch instead of all the heavy food that I have been having during my time in Auckland. The dish, as you can see was presented really nicely. The pate was nice and smooth and had a good flavour to it. I really liked the pickled shallots that came on the side and the peach chutney was also really nice. The mustard was also a really nice touch that was added to the plate. The dish also came with bread, which I worried about when I got the pate as it came later. The bread was wholemeal and made on site.
Baby Agria Potatoes & Mint Butter
These potatoes were really nice and had a nice subtle seasoning to them. There was rock salt sprinkled on top and the mint butter was really nice with some added fresh mint leaves.
Although it was a light lunch and I did not sample a lot of variety. It was really nice. This place is busy and the service was really good and attentive. You also got sparkling water instead of tap water which was a nice alternative. This place also has a bakery/takeaway area added to the side of the restaurant, which was busy as well full of suits getting a quick lunch.
