Get a group of friends together and enjoy the craft tapas trail on a Sunday afternoon on The Strand. Here’s a peek at some of the flavours you have to look forward to….

Head to the infamous Cornerstone Bar & Eatery where you’ll meet Jared from Whakatane’s Mata Brewery and enjoy matching their +64 Pale Ale with a trio of tapas including beef bulgoni, marinated teriyaki chicken wings and Welsh glamorgan sausage – a delicious vegetarian potato and cheese croquette served with cranberry sauce.
Your next stop will be at The Crown and Badger where you’ll be served Moroccan spiced pulled lamb shoulder with haloumi, eggplant and harissa yoghurt slider and a herb roasted portobello mushroom with rocket, haloumi and romesco sauce slider, matched with Emerson’s Hazed & Confused IPA.
