The Thirsty Weta
57 Maniapoto St, Otorohanga, New Zealand
Lunch was at this Kiwiana capital of New Zealand.
I love the Vegetable Frittata (NZD$10)! It's filled with seasonal vegetables like pumpkin and spinach, and served with a green salad and relish. Everything was delicious!
The Grilled Beef Sandwich (NZD$14) looks pretty good as well. There's caramelized onion and beef slices set on a toasted Foccacia, smothered with a blue cheese horseradish sauce.
The Banaffee Tart (NZD$9) was great! It's homemade and served warm with vanilla bean ice cream. Fresh walnuts, bananas and caramel make up the tart and it was just lovely!
The cafe has a very pub like feel to it and I imagine that it would be full with locals at night. Service was very friendly and efficient.I didn't expect to find this gem here! The food is outstanding, presented beautifully and extremely value for value. In retrospect, I like the food here the most out of all the other places I've tried on this roadtrip.
