Degree, Auckland, New Zealand

After having to mortgage my apartment to pay for the beer earlier on in the week, we decided to head off to the gaggle of restaurants close by to The Westin on the waterfront.

We’d decided to start off with a couple of beers before moving onto getting something to eat. One beer became two, became half a dozen, and we just couldn’t be bothered moving from where we were. Luckily Degree does meals, so our fate was sealed.

It was a nice, balmy Auckland evening, great for beer, Salt and Pepper Squid for entree, and 400g of lean sirloin on a stonegrill seemed to be next logical progression.

On a what? I hear you ask… a stonegrill… essentially a very, very hot stone that cooks your steak in front of you.

Out comes a blue steak, sizzling away on the stonegrill, and for the next 20 or 30 minutes, we cooked our own, really tasty, steak, slice by slice. A really good, and not overly expensive, steak.

If you’re in Auckland, on a nice afternoon, this is a great place to go for a drink, and if, like us, you can’t be bothered moving on, stay for dinner.
