Elliott Stables, Auckland, New Zealand

A number of us were in Auckland for the week to run some training courses so we had the opportunity to eat at some new places.

On Monday we went to Elliott Stables on Elliott Street just behind the Crowne Plaza hotel.

The setup of Elliott Stables reminded of the Hawker Centres in Asia. In the centre of the building is a common seating area used by customers of the 12 or so eateries that are situated around the outer walls.

We got there a tad late after my flight from Melbourne so some establishments had already closed for the evening. The Big Little Grill was still open and the menu looked good so I ordered a Sirloin Steak medium-rare. My first choice was the Lamb Cutlets but they’d just sold their last serving. I also ordered a side of chips and a beer.

Our meal came out in about 15 minutes or so and the steak was cooked to perfection though the portion was probably a little smaller than I thought it would be.

An interesting place to be explored more – website.
