Boulcott Street Bistro

Our last night in Wellington, the rugby was on and the All Blacks were playing. This meant that Ed and I were one of the three tables that were silly enough to dine out on such an important sporting night. It’s not like we planned it to happen, but we had a delicious time anyway....

Boulcott Street Bistro

Our last night in Wellington, the rugby was on and the All Blacks were playing. This meant that Ed and I were one of the three tables that were silly enough to dine out on such an important sporting night. It’s not like we planned it to happen, but we had a delicious time anyway.

Set in this gothic cottage nestled between corporate concrete buildings, this iconic landmark has been serving Wellingtonians with food for 20 years. Partner and chef Rex Morgan is also one of the featured chefs at the WLG pop up restaurant opening tomorrow in Melbourne.

Prawn & Chorizo Risotto

With lobster bisque and basil butter

Gremolata Crumbed Calamari

Sauce tartare and lemon (BSB classic)

Roasted Poisson Du Jour

Saffron and prawn ravioli and lemon butter

Steak Florentine

Grilled sirloin marinated in fresh herbs, garlic and lemon served with Lyonnaise potatoes and roasted tomato.

Roasted Beetroot with Fresh Thyme

Creme Brûlée

With poached seasonal fruit (a BSB classic)

Baked Apple Ginger Crumble

With Autumn rhubarb pudding

I thoroughly enjoyed all the food here. The risotto was cooked perfectly, with the delicious combination of prawns and chorizo. Whilst the signature dish is lamb shanks, I was feeling so full from eating our way around Wellington, I was glad the fish was a light, but still moorish substitute. And just looking at the picture of the creme brûlée reminds me of how smooth and perfect it was…. *drool*

    Oh my gosh ALL your food in New Zealand looks fan-FRIGGIN-tastic!!! The flavours seem very true and natural too. I’m seriously hungry reading this post (but then again reading food blogs is such a stress reliever during exams season, hehe!)
