I came across Little Jimmy by accident. Just happened to be driving past and immediately I saw its potential. The signage and general look screamed out that this was my kind of place. Some furious Googling confirmed my initial suspicions, and I was in. It was a Sunday night, and I got here quite early. A little disoriented, having just flown in from Melbourne; not quite sure what time it was. I sat down on my lonesome (business travel can be so lonely), and thus began the enjoyable experience.
First cab off the rank was the beer. A local Pilsner that was not really a big hit for me. Not to worry, as the food was not far behind. I ordered the Pork Schnitzel. It comes on the bone, beautifully presented with a apple and mustard sauce. This was very quickly devoured, along with some of the best fries and a side of kale to even things out in the “healthy” stakes.
After washing it down with a Panhead Supercharger XPA from the tap – a beer I know and love – I was one satisfied, stuffed little piggy. There is much that is good to say about Little Jimmy. Indeed, there is much to say that is good about the food scene in general in Auckland right now. Apparently Little Jimmy is a brand new concept for this particular area. One thing I know for certain, I have some delicious things to look forward to on my future trips to Auckland. Delicious.
