Electing to shoot the breeze one recent evening on a beach on the City of Sails' NorthShore, we partook of its pleasant charms and then decided to round out the shaam by sampling some snacks on Takapuna Beach Cafe - which is listed as one of the coolest snatches of real-estate which a cafe can occupy in the city. It was a neat spot on the deck, complimented by convivially solicitous service, and a nice cut of beach with sprays-'n'-clumps of Pacific vegetation for a view. The nibbles we opted for, included Tua Tua fritters and hand-cut agria chips. I had to clarify the identity of both the central players.

I googled to get an idea of what agria chips meant.Whitebait fritters (which themselves are conceptual mistakes), these marine specimens too had been embedded in an omelette - an ill-advised vehicle of delivery no matter how skilled the operator.discernible glossal impression at all, of a bit of marine funk.In Wellington's much-feted Logan Brown restaurant, (and this incidentally is the only NZ restauarant thus far wherein the chef came out of the kitchen to voluntarily have a bit of social intercourse with me)The chef recognizes a real taster.a fiend who must have exited the kitchen after briefing showing its occupants how to empty the beach and fill the restaurant.Everybody at the table, including frigid femmes, were floored by this quiet zinger.Rifling through my archives, I sadly find that I failed to take a pic of that fetchingly chic plate of appetizer,Must have been really good as well as you must have been hungry.while I do have a rather useless capture of same space-time's prawn risottoWhere ? Please upload.
It is a nice view indeed.
Love the style of your writing EarnesTaster. There were some words I had to look up on dictionary (urban) lol.
Some of the references made me chuckle as well.
Food is our common ground, a universal experience.

@Termz - Highly appreciate your support, and I like the fact that ,like your feedback on my Meredith's resturant review, you have invested time and interest to go through the article, and found things to like. Agria chips - i mentioned what they were in a later paragraph, and apropos the photo of the prawn risotto - well, if you google the images of it ,you'll instantly find much better specimens than my undistinguished plate,which is really not worth uploading. Thanks again for your valuable encouragement....tc
