From cheap eats and vegan treats to a Japanese degustation, there’s an amazing menu to tempt everyone.
We look forward to the annual Heart of the City Restaurant Month every year, not just for the innovative menus that our favourite chefs prepare, but for the extremely reasonable prices attached to them. This year, we think the eateries at Britomart have outdone themselves with the options. If you’re a truly enthusiastic gourmet, you could enjoy a different multi-course menu every day of the week at Britomart this August, and still have change left over from $300 at the end of it. (Though you might want to look at investing that into a membership at Les Mills.) Read on to tempt your tastebuds.
