One of Sale St's Favourite Reviews What's This?
For starters I had Crispy Pork Belly with Cauliflower cream, caramelized apples, crème fraiche. My partner had Alaskan Crab Ravioli with a Saffron butter sauce. Both were really good starters that would not be out of place at any top restaurant in Auckland. The pork belly was possibly the best that I’ve ever eaten. The ravioili sauce was superb and the pasta just about thin enough.
The mains I had the Beef Fillet Mignon with Truffled shiitake potato cake, baby leeks, chasseur sauce. My partner had the Roast Rack of Lamb with Pancetta, summer vegetables, mint béarnaise sauce. Unfortunately my beef fillet was tough which is disappointing given its the most tender cut. Given the colour throughout it was almost definitely plucked straight from the fridge and cooked before being allowed to rest. However, it was very tasty and the potato cake was amazing. The lamb was perfectly cooked and the sauce was surprisingly well matched. It just lacked some addition veg as the summer vegetables were meagre.
For dessert I had the Frozen Toblerone Mousse and my partner had the Blackcurrant & Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta. Both were of pretty good standard but didn’t really set our taste buds on fire.
The atmosphere in Sale St. was really good and the décor is really nice (if a little too cluttered), which was enough to earn it the 4 stars. Overall, we would probably go back.
The food itself was i-n-c-r-e-d-i-b-l-e, so I absolutely recommend trying out Sales St Bistro regardless of the event.
We were spoilt with an amazing set menu plus matched drinks of BOTH beer and wine (hefty servings, I might add *hiccup*). The beer was from the brewery on site – 1010. Disclaimer: I had not had even a sip of beer in over 4 years – as I normally don’t like it BUT, well, 1010, you have turned me!
We had a ‘blackened’ salmon to start, which was cooked to perfection. Just cooked and heavily seasoned. With this, we had a choice of the 1010 Hot Throat Chilli Lager vs the Matawhero Chard ’11. I voted for the chardonnay on this round. Next up was a crusted venison, but as I’m not uber excitable about venison, I can’t really judge this meal. Same went for my dinner buddy. However the Aucklandian Pale Ale was a winner over the Matawhero Merlot (shock, horror). Don’t get me wrong, the vino was gorgeous, I just enjoyed the beer better with the venison.
The best part was dessert….Sticky Toffee & Valrhona Tart with lots of prefect dulche de leche YUMMMMM!! Served with either a Matawhero Viognier ’09 or the 1010 Xmas Pudding Ale. Ok hats off to the legend who made that Ale. Add a super sweet dessert whilst drinking the Xmas Pudding, and yup my forgotten beer cogs started turning again.
The service was excellent (but there were lots of extra hands for the event I can only assume) and we certainly stumbled home with happy tummies
I can’t wait for the next one!
We were not disappointed. Highly recommend the scallop entree. The duck was the best I had ever tasted, and the desert menu had some unique and delicious offerings. The staff were knowledgeable, helpful and polite.
I couldn’t recommend highly enough, and I will be back.
