After the theatre last night we ate at Floriditas.

The restaurant is on Cuba Street and has an old world charm; a little like a 1930s French Bistro. I think it might just have become our favourite in Wellington.

Val waxed lyrical about the starter I ordered. It was a pasta; green bean feta, pistachio, watercress and parmesan spaghetti.  The pasta was al dente and the French beans were sliced and blanched for all of about 30 seconds ( so they had some ‘bite’ to them).

I think the recipe must consist of cooking the spaghetti first and then tossing in the ingredients listed: some crumbled salty feta, blanched sliced long green beans, pistachio kernels, watercress and parmesan. However they also added lemon juice and lemon zest and freshly chopped parsley and thyme. I think we are going have to try this recipe ourselves when we’re back in London.

We did have some main courses and wine as well. It was all delicious and it is now a Mr and Mrs Smith recommendation.

  1. This sounds good Paul, and I must say if we do go to Wellington we must visit tjhis quaint place. Of course it must be hard to find a good restaurant up in the North as the the South island is really where it all happens.
    I bought a very good pinot Noire today with the intention that i share it with you. thought it should be $100 bottle at least but .. oh dear I’m afraid I drank it tonight!.. Oh well will have to get another for when you cone to the main land.
