One of the best things about being a woman is that you are almost expected to do long leisurely lunches.
A nice wine, a yummy salad, something fatty like fries and aioli all washed down with a good coffee and girl talk.
We met at Pescada on the North wharf near the Wynyard quarter. Parking was easy across the road and $4 for 3hours was some of the cheapest around- first hour free which was a bonus!!
The place was quiet when we arrived but was getting busier as we left, it was a great space with lots of room and an interesting decor of mismatched tables and chairs mixed with deli foods from the Mediterranean. A great spot for a big family lunch!
The lunch selection wasn’t huge but it was everything you wanted with a couple of salad options and a lovey selection of tapas- albeit the usual suspects nothing too out there or pushing the bar.
The salad serves were great (around $22) and for tapas at around $14 it was awesome, I can picture a group of girls meeting up late afternoon eating old favourites of squid rings ($14) fries and aioli ($5) drinking their way to early evening.
Over all I thought it was nothing overly exciting but sometimes that’s just what you want- its the people not the place!
