Another old favourite I haven’t told you about before: tapas at the Heritage Auckland‘s Lobby Bar.
The bar has an entirely vegan food menu, including breakfast, lunch and high tea. In the evenings, it serves a selection of small shareable plates, along with an extensive drinks list that indicates which wines are vegan-friendly.
Last time I visited with a friend, we shared polenta-crusted artichokes with vegan aioli, tempeh & cauliflower filo cigars with beetroot chilli radish, rosemary-dusted fries, and a bowl of olives. All were delicious; I also recommend the paprika-spiced macadamias.
The Heritage Auckland is at 35 Hobson Street in the CBD, not far from the Sky Tower. Tapas is served from 5pm-11pm every day – at other times you can get breakfast, lunch or high tea in the Lobby Bar, or choose from the vegan options at Hectors Restaurant.
