Auckland: The Sugar Club

The Sugar Club is actually kinda cool…. Not as pretence and snobby as some people think. Peter Gordon does something different here. Firstly its on the highest floor of the Sky Tower, out of all the restaurants. Already been twice for dinner I thought i’d shout the girls a yummy birthday lunch.

Secondly, its no ordinary menu. The meals are smaller portions, like a sharing plate or tapas but its all for you. From the photos below are a mix of the lunch and dinner menu items, however the menu changes with season, and this is why some of the photos aren’t named. There are set prices, with two dishes being $56, three dishes being $70 etc, however you can mix and match and have any of those dishes mains or desserts. You will be surprised at the portion sizes. For me I ordered 2 dishes – the day boat fish and one dessert, but I recommend ordering sides to share. I’ve tried the watermelon & Feta…sounds like an odd combo but its actually quite refreshing and works in a weird way. The miso Kumara is delicious, and you can’t go without the duck fat roasties.

After visiting twice for dinner and once for lunch, the food is quite outstanding. Everything is displayed beautifully and cooked to a good degree. The only dish I would avoid is the Spiney Crayfish and Linguine, as it was far too cheesy and could just use some adjustments.

Nb: If you all order different desserts, you can all try a spoonful of each others.
