What do all Asian cuisines have in common? Black Rice holds the key with a fusion dining experience that brings together the continent's most showstopping flavours with gorgeous cocktails to match.
Tucked away from Auckland's hubbub in Alblany, Black Rice has the luxury of space, and they certainly use it to their advantage. Housed in a modern building, this eatery stretches out with a multitude of dining styles under one roof. For those with romance on their mind, they won't be able to resist a supper in the conservatory with a ceiling of fairy lights overhead whilst those looking for something very relaxed will love the clean and lean main dining room that is wonderfully cosmopolitan with added playfulness in the form of stained glass windows.
Settle in over a plate of fried and steamed dumplings ready to be dipped in a glossy lake of black soy sauce. Filled with anything from chicken to shredded beef and octopus, these are the perfect appetite warmers for a stellar feast to come. You can even warm up with some dumplings floating in a flavoursome soup - perfect to fight away those rainy Auckland days.
Mains can be enjoyed shared or as individual plates. If you fancy continuing the sharing vibes, enjoy a diverse range of flavors that explore Asia's vast culinary landscape, starting off in China for some Cantonese curry chicken before moving East to Indonesia for a Mee Goreng and then on to Thailand for a classic Pad Thai. If you have some vegans in the group, don't forget to order some Kung Pao Vegan Chicken and Wok Tossed Vegan Steak with Pepper Sauce too! With a delicious range of vegan dishes on offer, everyone is guaranteed to be satisfied.
If, however, you want all the deliciousness to yourself, opt for any of Black Rice's signature individual plates. For something really special, nothing beats the triple cooked pork belly in a tempting oyster sauce or a helping of black truffle fried rice. Finally, for pudding, satisfy your inner child with a Basi banana plunged in hot toffee and served with ice cream; it's an oh-so-delicious, naughty delight!
