KING OF SNAKE

14/20

Cuisine - Good Food Guide - - Canterbury -

This hugely pop­u­lar spot serves up an eclec­tic mix of dishes in an edgy ur­ban set­ting – it’s a dark, moody space with some on-theme Ori­en­tal touches and dashes of dra­matic colour. The menu is con­tem­po­rary Asian, rang­ing from the fresh, sharp, hot flavours of Viet­nam to the sweeter, heav­ier, saltier flavours of China and Korea. Sichuan fried tofu with spicy co­rian­der salad and red dragon sauce is a fra­grant, de­li­cious com­bi­na­tion of tastes and tex­tures, while Man­darin-mar­i­nated sal­mon and grated co­conut salad is a fresh, flavour­some treat. A sharp lime cus­tard com­ple­mented by fresh co­conut milk, crunchy yam bis­cuit crumb and a cit­rus salad with fine sliv­ers of mint makes for the per­fect fi­nale, or you could opt for one of the ex­cel­lent cock­tails, which com­ple­ment a de­cent wine list. 145 Vic­to­ria St, City, ph: 03-365 7363, kingof­s­nake.co.nz Lunch Mon-fri, din­ner 7 days; mains $26.50-$42.50
