Nanam restaurant review

Metro Top 50 2018 restaurant Nanam in Takapuna offers a contemporary Filipino menu.

In its original home in Royal Oak, Nanam had a legion of loyal fans who loved Jessabel Granada and Andrew Soriano’s take on an intriguing, often-overlooked cuisine – that of their homeland, the Philippines. Late last year, the couple relaunched Nanam on the other side of the city, in a much larger, elaborately decorated space in Takapuna, and they have refined their menu, too. Filipino food is a true fusion of cultural influences – including flavours and techniques from China, Portugal, Spain and Taiwan – reflected at Nanam in dishes like black pudding with sorrel mayo, cabbage, broccoli and sour-apple salad, and the ever-popular taco pao, a steamed bao filled with pork belly. Genial, knowledgeable waitstaff are happy to guide you through the complex menu as well as the small, interesting wine list.
