Culprit. is the brainchild of ex-Depot and Fed Deli duo, Kyle Street and Jordan Macdonald. Hidden away up a staircase on Wyndham St, Culprit. is serving up European and American-inspired dishes in yum-cha style. Their food philosophy is to work in collaboration with local New Zealand farmers and producers, with nothing going to waste. The unique menu stars several offal dishes, including chicken liver parfait and doughnuts, grilled lamb's tongue as well as bone barrow with cheese. No visit is complete without a serve of their signature pork-stuffed peking duck.
