Jack Tar (Auckland CBD, New Zealand)
Me and my wife have been trying all of the different restaurants in the North Wharf since it opened. There are a lots of options to choose from like the Spanish cuisine of Pescado, Creole Cusine of Ms Clawdy to the Indian cuisine of Urban Turban.
This time we will be trying the mixed Western cuisine of Jack Tar. This establishment offers anything from burgers, pizza, pasta, risotto, salads and chowder to name some. They are always full packed on weekend dinners so we visited the place on an earlier time.
What we ordered is this enormous Beef and Bacon Burger $19.90 made out of 200 grams of beef patty, crispy bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, beetroot, aioli, tomato chutney on toasted focaccia, topped with onion rings and is served with very thick cut fries. Like I said it’s massive! Definitely can feed one and a half person or one really hungry man leaving them with nothing but satisfaction in their face.
We also ordered some Seafood Chowder $19.00 which is also served on a huge bowl. It is made with locally caught fish, prawns, mussels & scallops then served with toasted bread and butter. This was good and very filling but honestly me, my wife and my daughter think my seafood chowder is better.
Other than that everything seems to be fine, service was quick, place was nice and the staff were friendly.
