New Zealand, Dux de Lux Christchurch


Located just minutes from Canterbury Museum, Dux de Lux turns out to be a perfect choice for lunch.

Browsing a menu board behind a deli type counter, my head is spinning from all the possible delicious selections. My eyes and stomach are having a fierce battle.  I order a vegetable samosa with three distinct salads as a reasonable comprise.

I enjoy my salads along with a draft Ginger Tom, NZ$6.50 while the  samosa is being prepared.

It is not long before my samosa is presented with a small lettuce salad and warm apples in a tasty sauce for dipping.

What would lunch be without a slice of Dutch Apple Pie topped with a slice of kiwi?

Gracefully served on a plate decorated with whip cream and raspberry sauce. NZ$8 is not enough! To say the food at Dud de Lux was delicious would be a gross understatement.

An excellent way to end my culinary experience in New Zealand.
