Nestled a stone's throw from the picturesque Ferrymead, The Vagabond Chefs is a culinary haven renowned for its delectable Asian-inspired Kiwi cuisine.

Since 2015, this Christchurch-based establishment has captivated locals and visitors with innovative dishes that harmoniously blend adventurous international flavours with home-grown Kiwi charm.

The menu at The Vagabond Chefs is a culinary adventure, presenting a delightful array of starters, burgers, salads, pasta and sides. Their starters include succulent lamb meatballs adorned with creamy garlic yoghurt and zesty chimichurri alongside mouth-watering slow-cooked pork ribs glazed to perfection. Poultry enthusiasts will delight in the aromatic chicken croquettes infused with thyme, parsley and parmesan.

Vegetarians are equally well-catered for with the hearty vege bruschetta, featuring diced cherry tomatoes, pesto and burrata on crusty sourdough bread, finished with a balsamic glaze. Honey garlic aficionados can indulge in crunchy cauliflower bites, fried chicken or succulent shrimp. The Vagabond Chefs' signature spicy fried chicken, marinated in an aromatic blend of garlic, thyme, cajun spice and cumin, is a must-try, accompanied by a bold gochujang sauce.
