Why it's called a Cafff'e & "Salumi" Bar...
In a small little country that is famous for good cafes & wholesome food, Stark's Caff'e & Salumi Bar is probably the biggest embarrassment to the Kiwi food biz...
Stark's serves only salami or Salumi & other types of processed meat! - and pickled olives.
- Worse than fast food ;p blek
Hundreds of unsuspecting tourists are fooled to dine at Stark's daily instead of trying the authentic local fare at cafes like Citron Vert or Ronnie's - because of Stark's unbeatable location.
It is adjacent to the Civic Theatre, on Queen Street.
Well, I wouldn't be complaining if it's not because the price of the sandwiches are the same as a good meal at Gengis Khan Mongolian BBQ Restaurant.
I also wouldn't be complaining if Stark isn't so obsessive with its use of processed meat and salty olives - that even an egg sandwich will have the "signature ingredients".
Really...if McDonald's is willing to offer some healthy choices to its patrons, why can't a 'high-end cafe' like Stark's offer simple & healthy food items like fresh chicken meat sandwich?
Well, I'm not saying that it's wrong to serve only processed meat in a cafe/restaurant.
But,.. a "Salumi"-ONLY place SHOULD NOT be occupying that good spot beside the Civic Theatre.
