The Gothic Restaurant @ Motueka, New Zealand

The Gothic @ Motueka was once conducting mass services every Sunday just like any other ordinary church. But now it has been renovated into a restaurant with a Gothic theme and served as one of the fancy restaurant in the Tasman region.

I would expect more Gothic feel on their interior design. Apart from the menu which having a cross on, I don't sense any major element that it was a church before.

We opted for Seafood chowder as starter. This thickened creamy soup was heavenly. The best of its kind with a very generous amount of fish, prawns, crab slices and mussels. NZD 12.

The lady of the night ordered herself Beef Tee Bone steak with Kumara chips. Kumara refers to sweet potato in Maori. Kumara chips are rather common in New Zealand. It is widely served in restaurants and take aways. I find both the steak and chips to be dead cold. A turn off especially when you paid NZD 27.50 :(

The Gothic has stonegrill dining as their signature. And of course it will be the perfect choice for the man himself. I pampered myself a mixed grill @ NZD32. I was served with pieces of raw beef, lamb, pork and chicken each on a sizzling stonegrill. I choose beetroot chutney as the sauce to go with the meat. Pretty decent experience as you get to control how well the meat get to be done. The thick cut chips were excellent too,

And farewell to this special someone. All the best and may we meet again someday. Take good care.
