Kawa Kawa Infused

Fine-dining Mokoia Restaurant at Rotorua’s award-winning Wai Ora Spa is reviewed by Australia’s favourite food blogger, Not Quite Nigella for Business Spectator. She begins with rewana, served with whipped garlic butter and a mango and a kawa kawa melon relish. “The loaf is warm and buttery and on top is a deep fried kawa kawa leaf. It’s hard to say no to a second piece. The three course tasting plate for entrees is $33.50. I wasn’t sure what to order, but once I saw the paua dumpling I was sold.” And for a main: a “satisfying and tender” Silver Fern Farm rack of lamb. And finally, a mini pavlova with Tahitian vanilla, “served with a spoonful of avocado and kawa kawa ice cream, which is just amazing.”
