Bellbird has taken flight at the Dowse in Lower Hutt, offering stunningly crafted food from local and organic produce.
Inspired by years of dining at Wellington's cheap and cheerful Asian eateries including Kopi, Rasa and KK Malaysia, we have put our twist on a Rendang using a more modern Western-style cut of meat and incorporating fusion elements of smoked yoghurt and mānuka.
Dish Description: South Asian-style lamb shank curry with basmati rice, Taratahi mānuka and eggplant relish and smoked Zany Zeus yoghurt raita.
Abandoned Brewery, IPA: $10
Martinborough Vineyard, Syrah: $12
