Tuatua, Wellington - beef burger - 7/10

Ground pure angus beef pattie made to our own recipe, served in focaccia bread, with traditional tomato sauce, salad and garlic aioli with cumin cheese - $9.50

Tuatua is located in an unassuming hole in the wall (boatshed) on the waterfront under Frank Kitts Park.  I have passed by it a number of times without paying it too much attention.

However, on a nice day it is difficult to ignore, and so Dawn and I stopped by for lunch.  We were pleasantly surprised and have since been back several times.

This is as close to a "healthy" tasting burger as I have had.  This is probably because it more closely resembles a sandwich, with a solid serving of salad leaves, and un-melted cumin cheese on a focaccia bun.
