Che Barrington, the chef behind our widely popular Blue Breeze Inn and Chop Chop has brought an exciting addition to the Ponsonby Central stable, Go Go Daddy.
Transforming what was Honey Bear into a fun canteen serving a fast and affordable selection of the tastes of Thailand. A canteen is a space designed for people to meet, eat or sip, the heart of any community.
We got distracted by the amazing smells coming from our newest restaurant so the boss said we could go out for lunch and it was everything we had imagined...
Perched up in the front outdoor space collecting the afternoon sun the service was fast and cheerful, the food was delicious and we couldn’t stop ourselves from ordering more.
You may see some similarities of a few of the offerings to the hugely popular but now closed Moo Chow Chow, yes Ms Moo's Caramelised Pork Hock ($22) is on the menu and it’s hard not to order the familiar Stir-fried Soft Shell Crab ($18) but the menu is largely a brand new experience of flavours.
We, of course, had piles of the sticky pork hock cut through with Green Papaya Salad ($15), but were impressed with the delectable Coconut Curry of Smashed Prawn & Fish ($28) and the Slow-Cooked Beef Cheek Laksa ($20). Make sure you save some room for dessert, we all fought over the Milo Chocolate Mousse and the Lychee Sorbet ($15 each).
We hear whispers of a cocktail room coming for those that take the taste of what they drink seriously, but in the meantime go Go Go Daddy for lunch or dinner today.
