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.
What better way to enjoy good food than to wash it down with good drinks. Woodpecker Hill features an entire menu dedicated to refreshments. Here you’ll find the experts of whiskey and bourbon. If spirits aren’t your thing, fear not. Flick through multiple pages of wines, beers and cider, both local and international, until you find the one that satisfies your soul. Make sure you give the cocktails a try. All are Kentucky Derby winners. For the non-alcoholics who’d rather fancy a cup of tea, Woodpecker Hill has you covered as well. This is the place to sit back, relax and drink up. Lounge outdoors or cosy up in midst of the unique aesthetics that is American saloon meets Asian temple meets New Zealand.
