My first #BrunchClub at LOOP

Last Saturday, I went to my first ever #BrunchClub event. I was quite nervous going alone but I’m so glad I did because I had a lovely time meeting other bloggers.

It was held at LOOP in Kingsland. I’ve never been to this restaurant before but the food was great and I had three courses.

Check out my post below if you want to know more.

food restaurant pork belly auckland loopI chose the Bacon and Eggs for entrée. It has crispy pork belly, squid, chorizo quail eggs, peas and apple. I enjoyed this dish. It is also very pretty. I love crispy pork skin and this delivered. I loved the quail eggs.

fish seafood food auckland restaurant loopFor main, I opted for the Crispy Snapper with hazelnuts, white beans and veggies. I chose fish because I thought it would be a lighter option than steak or lamb as I wanted to save room for dessert. This was also quite a good dish but the snapper wasn’t as crispy as I wanted it to be.

dessert chocolate gelato loop restaurant aucklandFor dessert, I had the Chocolate Fondant Tart with salted caramel ice cream, caramelised banana and bee pollen. I loved this. I’m such a dessert person and this was a great end to my three-course meal. The salted caramel ice cream was on point and I want a whole tub of that. The tart crust/base was a bit hard and I had to eat with my hands but the chocolate inside was nice.

Overall, the dessert was fab and I enjoyed all three courses.

The middle one is Megan’s from She Said Yes and it is the Pan Fried Eye Fillet. The one on the right is the Oil Poached Lamb Rump which Bri from the-market blog had.

I think everyone was satisfied with our dishes. They were well presented and tasted great.

What I also liked about Loop was the decor. I love the styling inside.

loop nzbloggers brunchclub aucklandWe were quite a large group so I didn’t get to talk to everyone but hopefully I will in the next #BrunchClub. It is nice to be a part of a creative and supportive group of people. We blog about different things but we can come together, share ideas and tips and enjoy some wonderful food.

If I didn’t go to this, I wouldn’t have met and talked to other bloggers such as:

Please check them all out because they have awesome blogs too! There were so much more that I didn’t get to talk to but there’s always next time.

Thanks to Madeleine of Madicattt, Lizzy of My Foxy Corner and Laura of Laura Laura Blog for setting up #BrunchClub and organising the events. I look forward to attending more in the future!

      Thank you! The food was not only pretty but tasted great too. I still miss the salted caramel ice cream. It was so good. I think there’s one coming up. I hope you’d be able to make it the Wellington bloggers seem pretty awesome too. 🙂

    Okay, that looks AMAZING! Salted caramel anything is my favourite! Yum. I’ve been wanting to go to the brunch for the longest time, but I always chicken out >.< I think you might have just convinced me though! So glad you had a good time 😀 Loop sounds like a great place!
