Auckland in August is Restaurant Month, a feast of food with upmarket restaurants competing to produce the most enticing special fare.
But what special offerings are there for vegans and vegetarians?
Hectors Restaurant at the Heritage Hotel to the rescue! Chef Vinu Abrams is offering an elegant three course vegetarian menu for $40 that includes vegan options such as a poached baby vegetable salad with macadamia cheese, a mushroom tart with hazelnut salad, and mango parfait with cinnamon banana fritter and ginger syrup. This is special dining that makes it a special occasion.
