A steamed basket consisting of; A banana leaf parcel of chicken, lime leaf, coriander & pea auberge, Crystal dumpling of lobster, scallop, prawn & snow pea leaf and King crab, shrimp, pork and bean curd steamed Shu mai dumplings.

But with Woodpecker Hill, which opened in 2015, Che wanted to try something completely new – pairing Asian herbs, bastes and sauces with the best of slow-cooked Texan barbecue. The East-meets-West result, which Che calls “Asian Smokehouse Cuisine” was an instant hit, making taste buds soar, and cementing this restaurants reputation as one of the most exciting in New Zealand today.
