What we ate, part two

We had another day in Queenstown on our way back to the east coast. With only a few hours to spend, Ellen, EAP and I felt sure that eating a Fergburger was the best use of our time. It's apparently a tradition in Queenstown, and the owner refuses to franchise it, so you'll just have to go there.

As you can see, the classic Fergburger with cheese was a good size.


The French fries (hot chips??) were delicious and abundant, especially with the garlic mayonnaise accompaniment.

At the other end of the scale was Hopgood's, said to be the best restaurant in Nelson. We thought it was delicious!

Desserts in general looked better than they tasted. Here is our last REI dessert, not quite a Pavlova, or is it?

And here is a typical pastry case, this one in Geraldine. Beware the lolly cake!

All told, my favorites were the green-lipped mussels, the coffee, and any sandwich eaten outdoors with a beautiful view.
