DE­POT

Cuisine - Good Food Guide - - Auckland -

When in-the-know Auck­lan­ders are look­ing for a place to send vis­i­tors, De­pot’s al­ways high on the list; it pos­i­tively hums with en­ergy and bon­homie. Owner Al Brown (above) opened the doors five years ago; his vi­sion of giv­ing peo­ple the good times and flavours of a clas­sic Kiwi bach re­mains on point. Kick off with oys­ters or tu­atua from the raw bar, then move onto rus­tic, flavour­packed dishes from head chef Kyle Street’s sea­son­ally driven, sec­ondary-cut-fo­cused menu – skirt steak with to­bacco onions, per­haps, or pork hock with ap­ple. And if you can squeeze it in, it would be rude not to or­der a wedge of the leg­endary sugar pie. This is a fast and fun joint where the wine comes in tum­blers, the cut­lery’s in a tin can and peo­ple queue out the door ev­ery night of the week – get there early. 86 Fed­eral St, City, ph: 09-363 7048, eatat­de­pot.co.nz Break­fast, lunch & din­ner 7 days; big­ger share plates $25-$36 IN BRIEF The fun and flavours of the Kiwi bach
