Central Otago Mirror - - FOOD FOR THOUGHT -

There are lots of solid bar choices on the main menu and the slightly cheaper lunch menu (rang­ing from $9 to $14) - each with their own twist. It was great to see a kid’s menu avail­able (no colour­ing or other en­ter­tain­ment though) but choices were lim­ited (only four) and very ba­sic (ex­cept for the Chicken Salad, which nei­ther of my kids would ever or­der!). I let Miss 9 choose off the

main menu and she chose the most ex­pen­sive meal of the day - the ba­con cheese­burger and fries ($18) - of which she only ate about one-third. Never mind - her loss was our gain and it was one of the best tast­ing burg­ers I’ve sam­pled - juicy and full of flavour. My pulled pork tacos ($14) beau­ti­fully com­bined the rich pork flavour with fresh slaw and spices, even if they were a lit­tle messy to eat. One of the fathers or­dered the fish and chips ($14) and while he is not a great fan of hoki, he com­mended his beer bat­ter and was un­ex­pect­edly de­lighted with the ad­di­tion of pea and mint puree. The chicken and waf­fles ($14) with its ba­con and bour­bon maple syrup was un­usual but it and the pulled pork bun ($13) got the thumbs up. Miss 6 was rather more in­ter­ested in the shoe­string fries and tomato sauce on her

plate than the crispy chicken ($7).
