Wellington on a Plate
Lucky Number 8
Eight is the luckiest number in Chinese culture, and fortune is smiling on you in the form of a figure-eight double burger. Revel in your infinite burger wealth, or share with a friend – the choice is yours.
A local crayfish patty and Ōtaki minced pork patty are nestled side-by-side in a custom-made infinity charcoal milk bun by Zaida’s, topped with Asian-inspired garnishes including cos lettuce, shaved daikon, coriander, chili, spring onion and sriracha mayo.
Best burger you ever eight, guaranteed.

Ting Tong Bucket & Mango Sticky Rice Balls
‘Ting tong’ may mean ‘crazy’ in Thai, but there’s a method to the madness. This build-your-own cocktail is reminiscent of Thailand’s famous Full Moon parties – but with luxe, local liquids, this bucket is not the same you experienced many moons ago.
Martinborough’s Lighthouse Gin* takes pride of place amongst other premium spirits. Then go stir crazy with mixers such as Pete’s Natural soft drinks and Six Barrel Sodas and a selection of botanicals and garnishes to put you over the moon. Suitable for sharing or to be enjoyed by one.
*For free spirits, a non-alcoholic version is available using Seedlip.
Paired with Mango Sticky Rice Balls
Thailand’s favourite dessert turned into a tapas bite. Savour the iconic flavours – Mango, Sticky Rice, White Chocolate and Coconut – matched perfectly to the Ting Tong bucket to transport you to a Thai island far, far away.
$26 for cocktail and dessert pairing
