Auckland’s Best Beef and Lamb
New Zealand is renowned for its world-class meat and a question we often get asked is ‘which Auckland restaurants serve up the best beef and lamb?’ The New Zealand Beef and Lamb Excellence Awards have been announced for 2019. The Gold Plate award recognises the city chefs transforming tender meat cuts into lip-smacking fine cuisine.
As a taster, imagine waterfront bistro Giraffe’s eye-fillet steak served with beetroot, shiitake mushrooms, hollandaise and duck fat chips. Or their rack of lamb accompanied by kumara toast, lamb croquette, mint sauce, and mountain yoghurt.
If you’re a meat lover, look for the restaurants displaying the Beef and Lamb Excellence Award gold plate on their wall. It’s here you can expect tasty, skillfully composed and superbly presented beef and lamb dishes.
