The Engine Room

The Engine Room

The Engine Room is a bustling neighbourhood bistro in Northcote Point, 5 minutes from Auckland’s CBD.

In 2006, after a year of looking, Natalia and Carl found a beautiful old post office in Northcote Point to house their dream of a neighbourhood bistro – a place where they could share their passion for hospitality in a fun and friendly environment. Nearly 15 years on, many awards later, the place is alive with laughter, talking and music and the aroma of delicious food fills the restaurant. Plates, cutlery and glasses clink, the staff are heads down, moving swiftly and in the zone. There’s a buzz, an atmosphere that’s just going off.

We’re proud of the restaurant we’ve created and the community of staff and customers who have become good friends. Most of all, we’re proud that we can share our passion for good, damn-honest food with you and look forward to seeing you soon. – Natalia Schamroth and Carl Koppenhagen, Owner Operators.

Orphans Kitchen

Orphans Kitchen

Orphans Kitchen is a partnership between two friends. Tom Hishon, Executive Chef, and Josh Helm, Manager.

Our restaurant can be found in Auckland on Ponsonby Road, inside a narrow Victorian villa that was built in 1912.

We are a small, friendly place with a 40-seat dining room, a long table upstairs and an outdoor courtyard where, weather permitting, you can catch the afternoon sun. Orphans Kitchen initially opened for dinner only, but is now a day time affair.

Manifesto:

1 — Practically express the qualities of purity, simplicity and sustainability that we would like to see associated with New Zealand’s food culture.

2 — Respect New Zealand’s erratic weather and remember that ever-changing conditions give us true variety in the produce we like to use.

3 — Work with regional produce that is cultivated with care, high in nutrients and holds the unique terroir of its area.

4 — Continue to invent, challenge convention and produce the best dining experiences.

5 — Promote the protection of native fish species in our seas, and openly champion more sustainable approaches to harvesting food in our forests, farmlands and rivers.

6 — Educate diners about Māori heritage through ways of food preparation and bringing forgotten flavours or ingredients to the table in a modern context.

Daily Bread

Daily Bread

Our bread calls for a natural leaven, a long, slow ferment, and the best organic and spray free NZ ingredients where possible.

With these processes firmly informing every step, our bakers pursue bread with a juicy open crumb, a heavy, caramelised crust and deep depth of flavour.

Each resulting loaf possesses a kind of old soul. By showcasing a specific grain in a loaf and treating it in the best possible way, we produce a family of breads that are united by process but wildly different in taste and texture.
