Major Sprout

Major Sprout’s owner, David Lee, also owns Dear Jervois and previously owned Little King in Milford. Located on Auckland CBD’s Graham Street, the spacious fit out was done by Envoy Construction with steelwork by James McNaughton. It features an open kitchen, large floor to ceiling windows, wooden stools, pot plants, hexagon marble tiles and standout light fixtures. All plates are handcrafted by Wundaire. Jessie Choi is the manager. The head chef, Phil Czethohatis, was previously at Hip Group. The menu, which has a Korean influence, features compressed watermelon and stone fruit with rhubarb, strawberry and chia seed labneh, and a Crunchy Gentleman, comprising a free-range ham toastie with three-cheese béchamel, date and chilli chutney. A standout dish is the BiBimBap, made with quinoa rice, tofu crumble, egg, sautéed vegetables and chilli jam. Smoothie flavours include Peanut Buttercup with banana, peanut butter, cacao powder, medjool dates and almond milk. From the cabinet, Major Sprout offers house made sushi, a selection of raw salads, and raw sweets by The Raw Kitchen. Open 7-4pm weekdays and Saturday from 8-4pm.
