Wellington On A Plate 2013

And they’re off! Yes, Wellington On A Plate has started again for 2013, and with it the Burger Wellington competition.

We went out for lunch today from work to Trade Kitchen – a venue I’ve been to many a time in the past – to sample their offering, the Fat Boy’s Revenge burger. This is a standard beef burger with a gruyere and La Boca Loca chili relish, and is a useful calibrating burger – nothing too flash or unusual, but a definite quality burger. I scored it 8.

The burger was served with triple-cooked fries, and a glass of beer for $8 – I chose the Renaissance Pilsner.

All in all, a satisfactory start to this year’s shenanigans. We’re off to Plum tonight for their Dine Wellington menu, then on to see Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing, as part of the New Zealand International Film Festival.


  1. Nice work Rory - now if you could try a FergBurger, I've heard THAT's a calibrating burger...!

  2. Unfortunately FergBurger are in Queenstown...but next time I'm in Queenstown I'll try one and report back!
