aunty menas - wellington - new zealand
"bbq pork" dumplings
wonton noodle soup
Oh Aunty Mena's. Wellingtons seemingly most loved vegetarian restaurant and for good reason. When I put out the call on Twitter for where to go in Wellington, I got flooded with single responses "Aunty Menas". Not really up for *more* mock meat than already ingested in my trip I avoided Aunty Menas on the first day but was finally wooed by her siren song on the second day. The interior is unassuming, just some tables and chairs with many of Aunty Menas family sitting at a big bench at the back making dumplings and other goodies. The bbq pork dumplings were incredible but nothing like the wonton soup. The wonton soup was light, delicious and handmade it was totally mind bending. Go to Aunty Mena's.. just go.
