Probably the best roast chicken around.

Before you order the whole heritage chicken ($68++), the waitstaff will inform you that it will take up to an hour to cook. So an hour I waited. And it was well damn worth it.

Not only was it visually appealing, the aroma emanating from the chicken caused heads to turn. I believe the adjacent table ordered this dish upon seeing our chicken!

The chicken of course was uniformly cooked, tender throughout and unbelievably juicy. The skin was crisp and had been glazed with a sweet layer of manuka honey and coated with fennel pollen that added that extra crunch.

The chicken is served with piping hot baby potatoes and crisp kale to give you a lil respite from the protein heavy chicken but truly, no break needed.
