Dinner at Scenic Hotel Franz Josef Glacier Hotel New Zealand

We'll then enjoy our tour, this evening we had dinner at Scenic Hotel Franz Josef and had a local food and wines feature prominently on the hotel, We try some of the famous Whataroa home-smoked chicken breast, Beautiful Mt. Cook Region Trout, my husband and I had a South West lamb rump and compliments with sweet desserts on the set menu include salad or soup, tea and coffee. The West lamb rump, reminds me the special sauce of the Swedish chef in Taiwan, and N.Z Pavlova it was delicious on garden settings with superb alpine views.
