Last month, I organised the NZBloggers Brunchclub at one of my favourite brunch places Devon On The Wharf. I have already blogged about this place before but I wanted to recap my first ever brunchclub.
First of all, I wanted to say thank you to the lovely team at Devon On The Wharf. They made us feel so welcomed and they kindly made sure our tables were perfect. They even organised name cards for us which was amazing.
Sy my original blog post about Devon On The Wharf had photos from the inside of the restaurant. This time around we were seated in the outdoor eating area which is also lovely. This area is still covered and have heaters so it’s great for the autumn/winter period. I love the plants and greenery in this area too.
The team also kindly gave us this Bodrum Mezze Platter. This awesome platter has hummus, tzatziki, taramasalata, sigara borek, falafel, calamari, olives, Feta, potato piyaz, pickled vegetables, Turkish bread and flat bread. I’ve never had this platter before and I loved it. This is great for sharing if you have a group of around 4 people. I loved the calamari and sigora borek (the one that looks like spring rolls) and dipping the break in the dips. I ate so much of this that I struggled finishing my actual main dish.
I’ve tried quite a few things from their menu already and my go-to has always been the crispy chicken souvlaki. This time around I opted for the Sumac grilled markey fish souvlaki. The fish was seasoned well and has the usual salad, habanero mayo, dukkah peanuts, tomato and pita bread.
There were nine of us in the end and here are some of the dishes we had on the day:
Kendel ended up choosing the French Toast which came in this massive plate. It looked amazing. It has brioche, maple syrup, bacon, chantilly cream, poached pear and pistachio praline.
Lena got the Breakfast in Turkey which has olives, Feta, tomato, cucumber, greens, fig Mascarpone, berry compote, honey, scrambled eggs, sujuk sausage and toasted pide.
I got a cappuccino to start with but Laura got this Green Goblin Garden mocktail and I got jealous so I got one too. This has green apple, lemongrass, lime juice apple juice and soda. This was so good. I’ve tried their other mocktail Mango Passion Dream before too and that’s also good.
Here are some of the posts from the NZBloggers who went:

I can say that the first Brunchclub I organised was a success. We had a great time at Devon On The Wharf. I’ve been here so many times and I’ve always had good food and service. It was great that I was able to bring more people here and they got to try one of my favourite places.
Thanks again to the team at Devon On The Wharf. I’m sure I’ll be back soon.
If you haven’t been here before, I recommend you check them out. It’s by the Devonport Wharf.
May’s Brunchclub is slightly different and it’s not just for bloggers. We’re hosting a Pink Ribbon Breakfast on May 26th from 11am – 1pm. The proceeds go to charity and everyone can come.
