The best restaurant on the edge of the world?

Leave a comment

Fiordland, South Island, New Zealand is, by any definition on the edge of the world, so to find one of the best restaurants ever, for menu choices, quality of produce and cooking and service was a treat. This is no secret to locals and travellers who have done a bit of research before arriving in Te Anau, so booking is advised. We had to take an early booking the night we arrived. New Zealanders eat early! Must be all that fresh air and rain – it rains two days out of three in the fiordlands!

The dish I have shown above was a special where the white bait is whipped up which a savoury meringue- simply stunning. I have taken a shot of the white bait because I can't buy it at home like that.

Everything from hare, goat, lamb and home smoked Stewart Island salmon was superb. There were other restaurants in Te Anau but we booked for a return visit on our second and last night in the town so that we could work through more of the card. Fiordland is after all not exactly round the corner.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
