Miss Clawdy

Today we visited Miss Clawdy down at North Wharf, a newly opened (just one week) restaurant inspired by the Southern USA. We were immediately impressed with the decor inside. The hanging wicket baskets, bare lightbulbs, dried flower displays and splashes of colour paired with some great music gave it a warm, vibrant and happy atmosphere. It was a sanctuary from the torrential wind and rain outside. Between three we ordered the Fish Taco ($6), Pulled Pork Taco ($6), Jambalaya ($14), Hand cut Street Fries ($7.50) and Southern Fried Jerk Chicken ($14). To drink we had an Old Fashioned Cherry Lemonade Cocktail ($12.50). The chicken and fries were amazing amazing stuff. We highly recommend. It’s possibly the best fried chicken we’ve had, possibly. Taco wise, the tortillas were well made with a little crisp to it. We enjoyed the fish over the pork. The lemonade is made with the following – citron vodka, briottet creme de marasquin, orange bitters and homemade lemonade over lemonade ice cubes. It was incredibly refreshing, full of flavour and had the right amount of tang to it. The lemonade ice cubes also meant your drink won’t water down as time passes. Dessert failed us a little, we had the Key Lime Pie ($10) but it was too sweet and the pastry a little soggy. Service was attentive.

This is no doubt a great addition to the growing Auckland food scene. We just missed out on the ribs this time round (it sounds super delicious), but never fear we’ll be back alright.
