In December 2009 I went to a conference in Auckland in New Zealand. I had passed the Harbourside Ocean Bar Grill numerous times on my first few days and really liked the look of the menu. However too often I was eating with friends, or at the conference. I decided on what was my last night in Auckland that I would go and eat there.
For my starter I went with the Northland Scallops.
Grilled scallops with a pineapple salsa, skordalia and beurre blanc.
Beautifully cooked and presented scallops. Nice accompaniments. Delicious.
