We didn’t have time to spend time in the park but this is a definite place to eat some fresh prawns!
1 kilo of steam prawns (~NZD45)
 This is the current promotion dish with many different sizes of prawns. The size does not matter because even the smallest prawn has meat and the meat if fresh! Superbly delicious! Once you start, you can’t stop. Serious! A definite must try! (^_^)d
