S and I spent Christmas last year in Auckland with some of our friends. We stayed there for a couple of days, mainly to check out what Boxing Day deals we could find. Unfortunately we didn’t get to score a lot of good deals, but we did end up meeting a handful of lovely people there and also eating a lot of Filipino food. A majority were home-cooked meals in the houses of other Pinoys, but our last dinner in Auckland was at Boracay Garden Restaurant.
Seeing there were only four of us in the group this time, we didn’t order a lot different types of food. We did go for the larger servings for each item, which was said to feed 2-3 persons.
The first thing to arrive at our table was the Sotanghon (NZ$25.00). This cellophane noodle dish was very flavorful and filled with lots of chicken and vegetables. This was a favorite among the group, and personally, I think this was already the highlight of the entire meal.
