Next place to check in a NZ town if of course a Mexican restaurant, right? After getting back fairly late from a tour it was close to the hotel and looked pretty good, so why not? So we checked out Coyote Grill.
One of two mandatory orders was right (and done right away) – chips & guac. The other that wasn’t (margarita) was simply replaced with sangria.
The guac had a perfect texture and spice to it.
Two appetizers were ordered after that for dinner.
Prawns (that’s what they call shrimp) Veracruz– sautéed with mild guajillo chili and slow cooked garlic
Duck Tostada – shredded roast duck served on a crispy corn tortilla with salsa
The shrimp had a nice kick to them and whatever seasoning they used on the duck was amazing. And for appetizers, these were big dishes. Perfect end to a long day.
