I have eaten the eggs bene with salmon and been transported to that special place with the perfectly runny egg yolks, elegant salmon and savoured the whole thing. The perfect meal to start a busy day when in Tūranga.

Vietnamese pancake with spicy (not hot) chicken tenders with red coleslaw, dukkah and cashew butter. Could there be a better combination of flavours on this earth? I seriously doubt it. Absolutely devine. Service with a lovely smile too. Will definitely be returning.
