Woodpecker Hill is one restaurant not to be missed. The same crew behind the successes of Ponsonby s Blue House Inn and Chop Chop brings you an international mash-up of East meets West.
Located in Parnell, this is is the place to go to enjoy a fusion of Asian orient spices and Southern-style barbecue flavours all in one mouthful. The chefs have picked out only the freshest local produce to combine the fresh, sweet tangs of chilli, ginger and lemongrass with flame-grilled, smoked and saucy slabs of meat. The menu will have you salivating before you have even sat down.
Head over on Sunday to feast on food unlike end other. The Smoker features a fourteen-hour smoked beef brisket ready to be served sizzling straight from the grill when you arrive. Or try the tasting platter to get a bit of everything. Take a friend or two because these meals are made to be shared. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available so nobody misses out.
