Forbidden Rice with Lemongrass Chicken Fusion
Artifax Cafe in the historic Queen's Lodge in Waimate is a destination in itself. Packed with interesting curiosities, fossils and even a ghost or two if legend is to be believed.
The meal combines South Canterbury fried chicken with a home grown lemongrass sauce. The broccoli and carrots are also grown on-site. Pilaf ginger rice, garlic shoots, prawn crackers and pickled asian vegetables give it a nice crunch and depth.
