Get In My Welly

Wellington on A Plate is here!

You can’t beat Wellington on a food day, let alone a month, with variety being the spice of life this August at Wellington’s most loved spots.

Pay-as-you-feel burger.

Everybody Eats is introducing a burger at Wellington on A Plate’s Burger Welly festival that will cost as much or as little as you like.

You can get your hands on it by ordering online via the Everybody Eats website, or by bidding on it on Trade Me. If it sells for $10,000, it will make it the world’s most expensive burger.

Payment for the ‘Rescued Burger’, which features a sustainably sourced tahr pattie, American cheddar cheese, ‘rescued’ butter pickles and housemade BBQ sauce, will be based on the same contribution model that Everybody Eats operates on, where you pay what you can afford for your burger, even if that’s nothing.

The Rescue Burger will be available on Tuesday 17th, 24th and 31st August more information can be found here.

50s diner

It’s time to hark back to the times of sideburns and soda fountains as St John’s Bar and Eatery transforms into Jonny’s Diner this Friday for a month.

Setting the cuisine-scene with black and white lino flooring, neon lights and checkered tablecloths, treat yourself to some fine diner-ing including hotdogs, fried chicken, and St. Johns almighty offering for Wellington on A Plate, the Big John burger, encompassing double beef patties, cheddar cheese, pickles, onions, and lettuce with all the trimmings.

Wash it all down with a Coconut Cream Pie Cocktail – a twist on the classic Pina Colada alongside other delicious boozy milkshakes.

More information and tickets can be found here.

The Burger Wars are on!

You’ll find plenty of food for thought with The Old Bailey serving up crispy chicken thighs in Zaida’s coffee bun dubbed The Sunset, while there’s no question, you’ll be deer-vouring The Cambridge’s Venison’s deer, isn’t it?

Head to Jack Hackett’s if you’re after The Read Dill with a beef and chorizo patty, aged cheddar and smoked thick-cut bacon or be the real king of the castle with The Realm’s Surf & Turf offering marinated scotch, crumbed calamari, and grilled prawns.

Concrete Bar’s Get-In-Do-Mie-Belly burger will spice things up with soy-braised chicken, sesame slaw, fried shallots, and fried egg, while you’ll get hooked on Dirty Little Secret’s Catch of the Day filled with fish, rocket, salmon, caviar, shrimp, and crab sticks.

For those a little further afield, try Tote Bar’s Mousetrap, filled with crumbed camembert, prosciutto, spicy plum sauce, and lettuce between a marmite bun.

Wellington on A Plate is on throughout August, don’t miss out!
