It was a dreary Saturday morning but some of us bloggers braved the rain and cold to go to this month’s #Brunchclub at Jack Tar. Jack Tar is in Wynyward Quarter close to the Viaduct Events Centre and Silo Park. I’ve been to a few places in Wynyard Quarter but I haven’t been to this restaurant yet.
We were quite a large group so we were split into two tables. I wish we weren’t because I wasn’t able to talk to the bloggers on the other table that I wanted to meet. However, it was difficult to switch around like we did at LOOP.
The menu looked pretty good though and the service was nice and quick. We were close to the kitchen too so I was looking at the food coming out from there.
I got the French Toast. I wish I didn’t get this because the other dishes looked so much better. It was also the least good looking dish. It came with a side of strawberries but to me it was okay. There was so much that I couldn’t finish it al.
This was Genie’s (from Bunny Eats Design) Eggs Florentine. It looked pretty.
Overall, I had a great time. My food expectations were high though and I think it’s because last month’s #brunchclub at LOOP was excellent. This place was alright and I wouldn’t mind going back there again but I will try a different dish. The service was pretty good though considering we were such a big group.
I was also able to meet these awesome people:
- Kendel from littlemisadventures
- Lennie from hellolennie
- Julieta from thekiwidiaries
- Emily from misswhitesmakeupdesk (sorry for the broken umbrella!)
- Stacey from yecatsnz
I hope to meet more in the future. I still got a bit nervous as it’s only my second time going to a #brunchclub event but my experience so far has been great. I look forward to the next ones.
Speaking of food, I recently joined Zomato to review all the food places I’ve been to. Although I’m not specifically a food blogger, I am a big foodie and I love trying new places. If you’re not on Zomato yet, get on it! 🙂
