Where's a fukkin sweet vegan restaurant in auckland?

Postby yossarian » Thu Jan 20, 2011 8:00 pm

You know, nice , not shitty cultists and shit.
The food is sweet at Golden Age, but it is not a Grown Up Restaurant.
People who could have been drafted for Vietnam will be eating there, so not super anarchist up the punx please.

Thanks :)

Hectors Restaurant at the Heritage Hotel has a full vegan menu (as well as a non vege/vegan menu) and by all accounts it's pretty damn nice.

I know it's tough mate, but wouldn't you be better off dating someone closer to your age?

been to alot of hotels and that is easily the best hotel menu ive ever seen :o im usually stuck with wedges or pasta, salad and a beer whenever i eat at hotels.


We haven't been there yet (saving it for a birthday at the end of the month) but friends have been and really enjoyed it. The owner of the restaurant is vegan, and insisted that there was a vegan menu. Pretty sweet!

The guitarist in my band is a Chef at works at Sale St's resturant out the back called 'Dallow's'... He can do a full 6 course vegan degestation.. just needs a weeks notice.

I was a tester and its off the chain. No tofu, tempe or soy products either.. which is an awesome change.


I heard the food at Hectors is really average for what you pay....

Went to Hectors last night, was awesome. Ana (who wrote the review just posted) is awesome, and I generally agree with most of her reviews on vegan food/products, but not this one. The serving sizes and prices are pretty standard for a restaurant of that caliber (ie: not Golden Age, Fortune or Rulei.) The meals are tasty and healthy, and I was full at the end (and not the kind of full you get at Golden Age where you can feel oil coming out of your pores and want to throw up when you get home.)

I had Roasted Tomato soup for a starter (safe, but delicious nonetheless), the breaded tofu for my main, which was awesome and came with potato and avocado mash, miso parsnip puree and candied aubergine and for dessert I had the cinnamon banana fritter, which as Ana said comes with roasted grapes, but what she didn't mention is that the roasted grapes come in a saffron syrup which is fucking amazing AND I asked for some soy cream with it which made it heaps better too.

It's definitely not a go-once-a-week kinda deal, like Golden Age or wherever else, but I think it will definitely be our go to for special occasions, or when Mum and Dad come to visit and want to pay.

Total bill for 2 people (both had starter, main and dessert) = $112.
Fuck everyone.

If 'Dallows' has got anything to do with Luke Dallow, it's probably more ethical to stay the fuck away.

Off to Clooney this weekend... Will let you know if they can successfully address a vegan diet.

Dined at Dine by Peter Gordon a few months back. It was alright; some great, some atrocious (gazpacho was foul, tasted like dishwater and aromatic bitters).

Little sterile, but very classy and absolutely amazing service.

Not sure if you protein-lacking pussies care, but Clooney was quite fantastic. Interesting use of edible flowers. Miso foam was quite delicious. The Chef even managed a vegan amuse-bouche (cucumber slices and avocado paste, tasted better than it sounds). The main was good (eggplant w/ miso foam). Service was quite exceptional, even managing to serve all the sauces on the side for the sides...

I drank a shitload though. So I might be unreliable. 0X :drinking: 0X

He can do a full 6 course vegetarian degestation .. only a week notice. I was a test and off the chain. No tofu, soy products, or one of Tempe .. This is a great change.

Haaah. No they customize every Vegan Dego and do lots of food chemistry ish..and are also a pretty busy restaurant. So for the quality of food that you get out, it ain't no thing to give them a bit of advance to prep.

Luke Dallows is not associated at all with that restaurant now, its got a different name that I cant remember, but is out the back of Sale St.

Some of the dishes I have had there (Described with my shitty non-chef terminology) - Mushroom & Walnut pate tortellini in a mushroom broth. Pineapple 'Ravioli' filled with mango sorbet. Thai inspired moneybag filled with a vegetable ragout. Some crazy dish that was a slice of melon, shrink packed and cooked in a water bath - smoked with manuka - and seared in liquid nitrogen - kinda came out like a tuna steak - with insane sauces & micro-greens and some bizzare wanky 'foam' stuff. A Dish with cherry tomatoes, avocado mousse & crispy wonton shell. A twist on toffee apples but made with Strawberries. A crazy salad made with a mix of crispy, soft, warm and cold ingredients.

That kind of stuff.
