Estrella Damm Tapas Trail: Ponsonby Party at Mr Toms

Jun 8, 2016 Restaurants

Mr Toms
149 Ponsonby Road

Amid tourists stopping traffic to take photos of the perfectly-framed cityscape below, the top of Anglesea St is near-permanently populated with revellers. Mr Toms has been attracting them since it opened its doors last November with casual shared plates and a fun, easy-going ethos.

Head chef Tom Williamson, formerly of United Kitchen and The Oyster Inn , is a big tapas fan, his most memorable experience occurring in a small restaurant in the old town of Palma, where all the classics were done to perfection. His tapas trail menu, however, focuses on a contemporary New Zealand style of cuisine, privileging seasonal local produce in dishes that are designed for sharing.

Mr Toms’ Estrella Damm Tapas Trail menu:

  • Saffron arancini, pistachio, Romesco sauce
  • Prosciutto, roast pear, burrata, hazelnut dressing
  • Market fish ceviche

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!
