welly on a plate

 Congratulations to Angus who won last week’s prize. This week, to celebrate Wellington on a Plate, thanks to the lovely Positively Wellington Tourism, we have a $100 voucher for Rata Cafe at Zealandia (the bird sanctuary in Karori) to give away.

If you’re the lucky winner, you might want to use it to have lunch in order to get your bearings before a night tour of the sanctuary (the cafe is only open until 5pm, mind) or when you take advantage of the special winter rate of admission to the information centre.

Of course, if you’re just in it for the food, we wouldn’t blame you! Rata has a particularly spectacular deck overlooking the sanctuary, and a menu (PDF) that offers up free range and organic goodness. As part of Wellington on a Plate, they’ve got a special deal for $25

Two courses plus a glass of Wellington regional wine, and a cup of tea or coffee

Main: Braised beef cheeks, creamy polenta and broad bean puree Dessert: Warm chocolate brownie served with cream and winter compote
Lunch wine: Instinct Martinborough Pinot Noir

So, how do you win? Leave us a comment before next Tuesday 5pm telling us either what your favourite bird is, or what else you think should have a sanctuary in Wellington. We’ll draw a winner at random.

We’re having a tiny bit of an issue with an over-vigorous Akismet right now, so if your comment doesn’t show immediately, don’t panic, it’s in the system and I’ll push it through shortly. Hopefully this problem will be fixed over the weekend.
