QTMAGAZINE SPRING 2017
Owner and head chef Paulina Corvalan is known for her expertise in combining
seasonal produce to create memorable dishes that reflect her Chilean heritage
and global cuisine.
The menu spans many cultures with tempting dishes such as Chinese style
dumplings, Asian inspired salads, Spanish seafood paella and Cardrona
Merino lamb. This spring, locally sourced Shingle Creek goat will be added to
With the restaurant blossoming in popularity Paulina has taken the next step to
expand her food footprint by purchasing a block of land near Clyde to grow her
own kitchen market garden.
“We are creating a commercial sized garden large enough to supply the
quantities the restaurant needs,” she says. “Our aim is to grow high quality,
healthy produce that is spray free. This will also help to minimise our waste
impact as currently most vegetables we buy come wrapped in plastic.”
Paulina has a passion for gardening and
has completed a sustainable growing
course that will be beneficial as she sets up her new venture.
“We are installing two tunnel houses and will be companion planting to
make the garden as organic as possible. It's an exciting time as we get the
first spring planting underway.”
Paulina’s is open Tuesday to Sunday from 12.00pm till late for
lunch and dinner.

What is Bike It Now’s vision?
Our vision is to provide all our customers with the best experience possible
in any communication they have with us. Our motto is “it is all about you”
and customer service is key for us. We also understand the need to value and
support our staff as they are an integral part of our business.
You host one-day bike tours with door to door pickups from both
Queenstown and Clyde – which trips are the most popular?
The most popular is our “One Day Wonder” on the Otago Central Rail Trail. This
allows people on short time frames, family trips or just a day’s cruise to enjoy a
spectacular part of the trail. This includes the Poolburn Gorge, the Viaduct and
tunnels. The kicker is the great food along the way.
How much luxury can be packed into one of your boutique guided tours
on the Otago Central Rail Trail?
These tours cater for boutique /luxury accommodation including Olivers Lodge
and Stables, Pitches Store, Marchburn Lodge and Kokonga Lodge. We include
full or continental breakfasts, all bag transfers and passenger transfers to and
from Queenstown. Other options we can include are electric bikes, 4WD tours,
garden tours, award winning restaurants and hotels for dining. But, the most
important thing we provide is personal service from start to finish.
As a specialist bike store you sell high quality Scott, Trek and Avanti bikes.
What are some of the latest features these brands have?
We will be using the brand new Trek Roscoe this season. These bikes have 27+
wheels, 1 x 10 drive train for easy shifting, easy maintenance and a 120mm fork.
This promotes stability, comfort, a smooth ride and inspires confidence. They are
available in XS to XXL sizes so everybody is enjoying the same riding experience.
Which brands of electric bikes do you sell and hire and can anyone ride them?
The answer is yes – they can. We believe we have the best range of top quality
E-Bikes from Haibike, Scott, Trek, Avanti and Smart Motion offering a very good
price range. We offer step through models to high-end full suspension to cover
all client requirements and also include them in our hire fleet. We love E Bikes!
Come and test ride now.
