McHugh’s Of Cheltenham (North Shore City, New Zealand)
I never knew this place existed until one of our friends invited us for a buffet dinner here. There are many buffet restaurants in Auckland but there are very few who stand out on my books like Eight, Wildfire, Khan, Urban Turban, Katsura Japanese Restaurant and Fortuna. Now I added one to this list and it is McHugh’s Of Cheltenham.
Located on a really nice spot on North Shore, it’s quite hidden and away from commercial establishments, just a few minutes’ walk from North Head its tucked on the end of the Cheltenham Road where the establishment enjoys a good view of the Tamaki Strait and Rangitoto.
They serve Sunday Buffets for $35.00 and it’s a steal for that price specially with the dishes on offer plus desserts. It is actually a good change from the usual Chinese or Korean Buffets as most dishes served here are from the Western Cuisine.
During our visit the ones on offer were different types of salad, potatoes and bread like pumpkin feta salad, cucumber tomato and olive salad, potato salad, roast potatoes, rocket salad, corn and peas.
Meat selection were beef roulade in gravy, pork and capsicum, roast lamb in gravy, prawn cocktails and some sort of chicken on creamy gravy.
To top it all up at that price you have a free drink where you can choose either a soft drink, beer of even a glass of wine.
It was all worth it, the food was amazing and the taste is quite spot on for my palate, indeed it was because when I saw them filling up some of the food warmers I saw one of the chef, he was a Filipino and I knew him, a brother of one of our close friends, now that explains the flavour.
For $35.00 I will definitely be back here again, the food was amazing, the place was nice, the staff were great and it is very affordable.
