Good Food Guide - - Auckland -

White + Wong’s is a great choice for a night out – big, bold flavours in a big, bold space smack bang in the mid­dle of Auck­land’s Viaduct. The in­te­rior is buzzy, with colour­ful on-theme decor, and the ter­race over­look­ing the wharf area is a great spot dur­ing the warmer months. The Asian­in­spired menu has some­thing for ev­ery­one, with many dishes de­signed to be shared. Fi­jian-style sashimi of king­fish, heir­loom toma­toes, chilli, lime, co­conut cream and co­rian­der has a nice bal­ance of rich­ness and acid­ity, while red dates add a hint of sweet­ness to Kore­anstyle short rib, with braised shi­itake pro­vid­ing umami and pick­led car­rot bal­anc­ing out the rich­ness of the meat. Desserts are a high­light too – think lemon­grass and pan­dan brulee with a brown but­ter fi­nancier, pecan ice cream and ba­nana co­conut foam.
