This funky BBQ joint in the heart of the Mount Maunganui is a little utopia where carnivores and vegans can feast together in happy harmony. Detail is king here. The quirky concept is carried through from the cowbell that is tinkled when food is ready to the local craft beers served in milk bottles.

Mexican Chef Jorge Sahagun Arizaga believes that animals who have lived happy lives result in better quality meat, which is why his chalkboard menus are sourced from free range farms and change daily to showcase the juiciest cuts.

Dishes draw inspiration from the length and breadth of America. The jackfruit ‘pulled pork’ tacos alongside triple cooked chips will have vegans’ mouths watering, particularly alongside a generous helping of dairy-free mac’n’cheese.

Slow cooked beef brisket, sticky chicken wings and beef burgers are just some of the barbecued meats available, all utterly delicious. Up your side game with sweet, yet spicy baked beans and a selection of slaws.
