VER­DICT:

Central Otago Mirror - - FOOD FOR THOUGHT -

The menu had a mas­sive num­ber of op­tions: snacks, burg­ers, a big va­ri­ety of bar­be­cue meats, sal­ads, desserts and break­fasts which can be served un­til 3pm.

With­out hes­i­tat­ing I went for the jalapeno pop­pers ($12) and they were my ab­so­lute favourite.

We also or­dered a light bite of crispy crum­bled chicken with roasted cap­sicum and corn salsa ($18).

The por­tion would be enough

to feed one, but it was just a per­fect snack to share be­tween three of us.

I had a chicken burger with a spicy curry sauce ($19) after a rec­om­men­da­tion from an ex-chef friend, who de­scribed it as ‘‘the best burger in the world’’.

The curry sauce com­bined with crispy chicken was mag­i­cal and jus­ti­fied the high praise the burger had re­ceived.

The ex-chef friend or­dered goat cheese and cumin pas­try ($18) with pine nuts, spinach, honey and red wine vine­garette.

She wasn’t fully sat­is­fied and felt the fill­ing was too cheesy and plain.

All of the dishes we or­dered had a spicy twist to them. A win­ning spot in the heart of Queen­stown and a wide range of dishes makes Coal­fire a prime din­ing spot. Suit­able for a fam­ily lunch or a snack and a cock­tail chill out with friends. Many dishes on the menu have a won­der­ful bar­be­cue spice to them.
