319b Queen Street, Auckland
On a recent trip to Auckland, some friend's and I found ourselves at a place called Tanuki's Cave. It was clearly a popular place, we had to wait almost an hour upstairs in Tanuki's bar- but it gave us an opportunity to sample some interesting drinks and I was very happy with the sake I shared. When our table was finally ready we walked down a flight of dimly lit stairs- feeling as if you were descending into some dark lair.
By the time we sat down we were starving an decided order a plate each. We were surprised when the dishes arrived there was so much food - the servings were large for bar food and full of fried goodness!
Fried kumara balls with almonds flakes- yummy sweet and crunchy balls!
Roast mushroom and mince
There were also fried fish and pumpkin and some yummy BBQ corn and other fried vegetables but I didn't take photos of everything and also lost the photos of the pick up sticks/jenga tower we tried creating with the skewers.
