A decent place out in West Auckland? Is it even possible? Don’t let the TV show Outrageous Fortune make you think that West Auckland is completely bad – its improved slightly. However the real outrageous fortune is The Hangar, tucked away from the main sprawl of Lincoln road it is actually the hidden fortune of Henderson. Serving delicious stone grill meals that come in HUGE portions and the option to choose your sides is a great deal for fussy meat lovers. No salad or veges – you’re sorted! Just choose the fries and onion rings.
Out of all the times, I’ve been here – the service has been friendly. Depending on who your server is, it can vary from instant best friend to cold heart no smiles. Regardless though, if you’re a first time customer they are happy to explain how their stone grill meals work.
This is probably the least pretentious place you could walk in and thankfully the prices also reflect the portions and fries. No fancy words on the menu, what you see is what you get. Mains range from $20 -$37. Their humongous platter is $42, bring a small army.
Portions, Quality and Taste – The Hangar ticks all the boxes – Their stone grill meals are the winners here but I also have to recommend the sharing platters. Come with an empty stomach, the portions are massive and it’s great that the food still taste good. What I love about the stone grill is that you can have the steak how you want it because technically you’re cooking it – those stone grills are hot and you can cook other items on it because its super-hot! Had the Ocean & Earth which was basically Surf and Turf and it was great! Had it with a side of slaw and chips.
