Taupo on a platter

I have accomplished to eat at both the restaurants I set out to – The Bantry & The Plateau.

Both were fantastic.

Last night at The Bantry I went with the Crab Cake for my entree which was really average and I wouldn’t recommend. It was rather doughy and not very crabby.

My main was delightful though – pork belly confit with a smooth kumara purée.

Service was great – attentive waiter with a sense of humor.

Oh! And the elderberry & apple cider was beautiful.

Tonight we dined at The Plateau. Again, great service. I had pan seared scallops on a cauliflower purée with bacon which was just mouth watering. Cooked to perfection. My main was a chilli, lime & coriander prawn linguine. I’m not sure they were prawns – I’d call them shrimp. It was lovely but slightly sickening after a while. Very strong sauce.

All in all great dining experiences!
