We had a yummy Wellington on a Plate lunch at Thunderbird Cafe today. Thunderbird is a quirky café in Featherston Street that is known for great coffee, cheese scones and its funky decor. Their WOAP set menu is good value at $25 and includes two courses and a beverage.
I'm glad I had booked a table earlier in the day as the café was full to bursting when we arrived, which is always a good sign. I chose an entree and main combination along with a nicely chilled glass of Cottier sauvignon blanc 2011. I felt very grown up drinking wine at lunchtime!
My first course was Tuatara beer-battered squid with lemon and housemade remoulade. I'm not sure which type of beer went into the mountain of batter but I was able to rescue some slices of squid from the outer layer and dip it in the homemade remoulade. Very nice.
