Heritage Auckland is helping the environment and diner’s waistlines with our new healthy dining menu. The Healthy Menu in the Lobby Bar and vegan menu and vegetarian menu in Hectors Restaurant serve the healthiest, freshest meals in town.
They’re entirely plant-based, using locally sourced produce to reduce our carbon footprint, and to help local businesses and farmers.
Why plant-based? Studies have shown that everything the human body requires for excellent health can be found in plant-based foods. They’re free of cholesterol and low in saturated fat, but high in fibre and nutrients. Plus, far less land, water and energy are required to produce them.
But don’t worry, diners needn’t sacrifice flavour for the health benefits. Developed by our Executive Chef, the Hectors Restaurant healthy dining menu features a delectable range of dishes. Or pop into the Lobby Bar in the morning for fresh fruit juices or coffee made with soy or rice milks.
Heritage Auckland was the first hotel in New Zealand to receive an accreditation by the NZ Vegetarian Society for its special menu options for plant based and vegetarian diners. The hotel also introduced the first local raw breakfast bar concept to great success.
Here’s a few morsels from our healthy dining menu:
Breakfast: Raw breakfast bar
Lunch: Paradise bowl - roast beets, fried tofu, walnuts, ginger, quinoa, courgette with sesame, chili, capsicum, walnuts, crispy shallots, sprouts, red cabbage, carrot, sauerkraut, tomato and vinaigrette.
Dinner: Portobello pearl barley risotto - braised portabellos with turmeric, ginger, baby peas, spinach, crispy onion rings and salsa verde.
