Good Food Guide - - Waikato -

This fun tapas restau­rant moved into its new river­side venue last year, and what a spot – it’s all floor-to-ceil­ing glass, soar­ing stud, min­i­mal­ist blonde wood and con­trast­ing black chairs, which makes for the per­fect set­ting to en­joy head chef Kylie Pet­ter­son’s glob­ally in­flu­enced small plates. These are done con­sis­tently well, with high-qual­ity in­gre­di­ents and thought­ful flavour com­bi­na­tions. Zingy crispy spiced chicken with creamy av­o­cado, lime and chilli mayo is spot on, while the beau­ti­fully pre­sented mar­ket fish niçoise salad is a clas­sic done bril­liantly. The kim­chi and pork dumplings, mean­while, are a mor­eish, flavour­ful treat. Staff are wel­com­ing and knowl­edge­able and the drinks list is a real high­light, with an im­pres­sive, Bel­gian-fo­cused beer se­lec­tion as well as a thought­ful wine list and great cock­tails. 21 Gran­tham St, Hamil­ton, ph: 07-834 3562, gothen­ Lunch & din­ner Tues-sat; tapas $6-$26 IN BRIEF Top tapas and tip­ples in a great space
