As the appetizer, savor the Seafood Trinity—a symphony of flavors featuring a confit of conga eel, smoked hake, and kina-cooked cream, accompanied by a delightful pikopiko and wakame garnish.
For the main course enjoy tender braised lamb flap, complemented by creamy kūmara mash, delightful blue cheese corn, and refreshing baby watercress greens. A light kawakawa drizzle adds a tantalizing finish to this exquisite dish.
Finally, indulge your sweet tooth with a delectable dessert. Our Koko brownie, rich in flavor and texture, is paired with a luxurious Beauregard kūmara cream, creating a harmonious blend of sweet and creamy notes that will leave you wanting more.
DRINK – Manawa Ora
A captivating cocktail that beautifully blends flavors inspired by Aotearoa’s natural wonders.
Manawa Ora in Māori translates loosely to “hope” and “breath of life” which was in mind throughout the whole creation of this cocktail.
This refreshing libation captures the essence of kūmarahou, rose, and jasmine green tea, a beautiful wairākau blend called “Ari” by a kairongoā, Renee Mac, owner of Soul Sisters Kombucha.
To enhance the experience, we incorporate the sweetness of kawakawa syrup. prepared in accordance with tīkanga Māori by one of our staff members.
Finally, top it off with The National Distillery Company’s New Zealand Native gin, which adds a distinct botanical note.
The Manawa Ora can also be prepared as a non-alcoholic beverage for those seeking a lighter option. No matter what you desire, the Manawa Ora promises a harmonious blend of flavors that will leave you feeling refreshed and intrigued.
Also a beer.
