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.
