Yesterday, Jeremy and I decided to go to Capital Market for lunch seeing as there are quite a lot of options there and we couldn’t decide on what to eat. I’d only been there once before and it was to get my nails done, not eat, so I wasn’t too sure what to expect. The first thing that impressed me was that you get 45 minutes free parking in the car park right above as long as you spend at least $10 at Capital Market, which you most definitely will if you’re eating lunch.
The place was larger than I thought it would be, but it does look a bit shabby unfortunately (in my opinion). I think they could improve on that a lot. There were lots of different stalls to choose from, mainly Asian foods. Jeremy ordered a Beef Rendang for $11, and I ordered a Warm Noodle Salad for $7. It was awesome value for the price as I couldn’t even finish the meal and had to leave the rest for dinner.
We do have a few food courts in Wellington now, but it still nice to see new ones open up. I mainly go to the BNZ food court where you have a lot of options to choose from, and different types of cuisines. I mentioned to Jeremy yesterday that it would be nice if Capital Market could offer a bit more of a range of cuisines, rather than mostly Asian. Nothing wrong with Asian food, I love it, but I still think it would be a good idea to offer more options.
I’ll likely go back at some point, seeing as it’s quite close to where I work anyway 🙂
