New Zealander Revisited

Went to eat at the new and improved New Zealander. The menu has improved since the former owner with pictures and colors, but the food selection was mainly the same. I ordered the old standby of the Steak and Cheese meat pie with salad. I have to say the meat pie had more filling compared to times past, but the flavor and texture lacked appeal. The meat was mushy in the middle. I am not sure if the pie was suppose to be meat loaf like? I would not order this meat pie again. On a positive note, the crust was nice and flaky.

The service was a bit troublesome as well. The dining room was one-third full and it took over 20 minutes to get a menu. It then took more time to place an order even though water was quick to the table. Eating with a small group of people took over two hours for dinner and that did not include dessert.

Ordering beers is a safer way to go at this restaurant and bar.

The New Zealander, has the best damned burgers on Webster st. I have had the Lamb burger and a cheese burger with a fried egg on top and it was the bomb.
