Estrella Damm Tapas Trail: Mikano

Jun 9, 2016 Restaurants

1 Solent Street
Judges Bay

There aren’t many restaurants in central Auckland that boast a helicopter pad. Mikano perches over the Hauraki Gulf next to the Ports of Auckland, in a building structurally reminiscent of meccano. Head chef Feleti “Fred” Tu Akalau has been working in the kitchens at Mikano for over 15-years, and in that time has seen Auckland’s hospitality scene evolve. A natural move to shared style dining and fresh, clean dishes has helped Mikano keep up with the pace, though its setting is fairly timeless.

Mikano’s Estrella Damm Tapas Trail menu:

  • Spiced chicken cakes with mango chutney
  • Lamb meatnalls with Romesco sauce
  • Snapper bites

Enjoy all three dishes with two glasses of Estrella Damm for just $40.

About the Estrella Damm Tapas Trail: Metro, in partnership with Estrella Damm, proudly presents a culinary journey across Auckland which pairs flavoursome food from 13 of Auckland’s leading eateries with Estrella Damm’s Mediterranean lager. View participating restaurants here.

Metro N°440 is out now!

With progressive councillors starting to score some wins under what was anticipated to be a reactionary major, Hayden Donnell asks: Has Wayne Brown gone woke?
Plus: we go out and investigate Auckland’s nightlife (or in some cases, the lack thereof), with best bars (with thanks to Campari); going-out diaries from Chlöe Swarbrick, BBYFACEKILLA.mp3, Poppa.Jax & more; a look into Auckland’s drugs by Don Roew (who’s holding and how much they paid for it); we go on the campaign trail with Willie Jackson, talk to gallerist Michael Lett, drink martinis and alternative wines, start seeing a therapist, visit Imogen Taylor’s studio, look into Takutai Tarsh Kemp’s wardrobe. And more!
