Parra Bay oysters – Oyster & Chop

Parra Bay oysters - Oyster & Chop
Mignonette, lemon. Happy hour, each $2 NZD
Oyster & Chop, Auckland NZ

Hmm, I liked that these oysters were super affordable during happy hour, but they didn’t seem very fresh or tasty. They seemed like they could have been previously frozen which is never a good thing. Oh well, you win some you lose some.

Red wines - Oyster & Chop
Elephant Hill Syrah ($13 NZD) and Mills Reef Cabernet blend ($12 NZD).

Beef casserole – Air New Zealand

Beef casserole - Air New Zealand
Green beans, potatoes, couscous, roll, cheese and crackers, berry dessert, red wine. Complimentary
San Francisco (SFO) to Auckland (AKL), Air New Zealand

This was ok. There was certainly a lot of food though (they really want you to fall asleep from a food coma). The beef casserole was decent, the potatoes were sad, I didn’t really like the couscous or dessert, but they were liberal with the wine so I was cool. 🙂

Italian meatball soup – American Airlines Admirals Club

Italian meatball soup - American Airlines Admirals Club
Meatballs in chicken broth, pepe pasta, spinach, onions, carrot. Glass of red wine. Complimentary
American Airlines Admirals Club, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)

This soup was ok. It was pretty much standard airline lounge fare so the bar isn’t set very high. It’s definitely better with a glass of wine. 🙂
