  1. The Flying Burrito Brothers Northlands

    * * * * *

    By my own admission I am a bit of a foodaholic, although I am critical of my food and I definitely approach new dining experiences with a somewhat critical ere. Sadly it wasn't until Spring of this year (2012) that I finally had the pleasure of dining at the famous Flying Burrito Brothers in Northlands, Christchurch. Suffice to say that this instantly became my favourite restaurant, the memory of such a pleasurable dining experience enticing me back to relive my experience weekly (they never fail to deliver). The food is quite simply delicious, and an extensive menu ensures there's something for everybody, albeit drinks, entrees, mains or dessert. Even if unsure how Mexican food will sit with you, I'd strongly advise paying FBB Northlands a visit; you won't regret it:)

    As my wife is Mexican, I thought it would be a great idea to go there for a birthday lunch with 15 friends including their children. When I made the booking I was told it would be no problem, however when we arrived they sat us in a part of the restaurant (opposite the kitchen) where the tables were set out in a very awkward fashion which meant that the group had to be split in two and sit separately from each other!?! Not ideal for a birthday celebration where you obviously expect everyone to sit together! We were quite disappointed with the arrangement given that we'd been squeezed into a very confined corner of the restaurant and yet the bigger more spacious area of the restaurant was set aside for single tables. We spent a lot of time getting up and moving around (with kids prams etc) and trying to rearrange the tables in order to get everyone to sit together but it just didn't quite work and it spoiled the occasion for us! Had they planned to have us on the other side in the more spacious part of the restaurant it wouldn't have been an issue, although apparently there are some legitimate reasons why they do this. If however I was judging them on their quality of food alone then I give them 4.5 out of 5 stars! The food was really good! It wasn't necessarily genuine authentic Mexican as they claim - my wife is from Mexico, so she's knows what's authentic Mexican food or not - but even she was impressed by the food! In fact a small number of the party were elderly people who tastes are somewhat resistant to the misconstrued concept of Mexican food being always just 'hot and spicy' - only to be pleasantly surprised by the delicious tasty food they had ordered. Additional note: After contacting the restaurant about the issue with the table arrangement, it seems the issue came down to a lack of communication when the booking was made. To their credit, I am a lot happier with the manager's explanation of events and the arrangement made to resolve the issue.
