Food: Pumpkin cannelloni/ Consumed: De Niro, Elliot Stables, Auckland CBD/ Date: 13 April 2015
It took us two weeks to decide where we wanted to go for dinner, and in the end we decided just a few hours before going, but it all worked out!
What I love about Elliot Stables is that it’s a lot like a food court, but a lot more fancy. My friends and I sat down at a table in the more secluded area. The lighting was dim, but warm and welcoming, and the decor is lovely.
I was keen for some Italian, something I haven’t had in a while, so I headed over to De Niro to order a cannelloni. I can’t quite remember the exact ingredients of the cannelloni, but I know that it was vegetarian and filled with delicious warm pumpkin. The best Italian I’ve eaten in a while and very satisfying.
After dinner, my friends and I headed over to Moustache, the milk and cookie bar which unfortunately has shut it doors now. They were having a final “secret cookie party,” where they were giving away free cookies. The line outside was huge, but the cookies are worth it, as was the delicious Whittaker’s hot chocolate I got.
Good news though, because Moustache will be opening a bus, which will be driving around with all the delicious wares still, which is wonderful!
