With addictive seasonal-focused dishes, an immaculate wine list and of course killer cocktails, sleek, chic new Ōtautahi gem LONDO is Robert Fair’s first solo venture, deliciously informed by his time as head chef of Lyttelton’s Roots and experiences cooking in Dubai, Copenhagen and London.
Fresh, frothy and deliciously sour-sweet, this contemporary citrus cocktail gets its creamy topper via egg white, while muscovado sugar lends a flavour profile of smoke and toffee. The first shake, sans ice, helps create the foam, the second, with ice, chills the drink and further aerates the egg white.
