Auckland: The Corner

I recently ventured out to The Corner in Howick for lunch. What a great spot for something to eat. Its a very chic with modern interior however just lacked a brighter natural light. 

Again another eatery offering tapas style meals, but also with a huge selection of specials on offer. We were told to try the garlic pretzel bread, and I would recommend this loaf to anyone whose a fan of garlic bread! So warm and soft and served with half a roasted garlic too. The Corner is not a place where you are trying to watch your weight. Also sharing gourmet chippies, cajun shrimp tacos and sashimi special. The gourmet chips were a tad disappointing, purely because I am a fan of the thick cut chips and when a menu item says ‘gourmet’ I dunno but I expect big handout chips. The sashimi was a great option to balance out the heaviness of the other dishes we ordered and flavour was good. The prawn tacos didn’t shout amazing but at least they were cooked perfectly.

I think The Corner is a great place for some greasy bites and a good ole beer. The service is great. Food was efficient and the girl was very informative with all questions. The only suggestion I would make is to remove the specials off the mirror, because if you’re sitting at a table, you can’t see them unless you stand up and walkover to read them. Its just a tad awkward.
