Auckland’s Best Street Food

  I absolutely love street food. We are very lucky in Auckland as we are spoilt for choice when it comes to street food. There are many food trucks and stands offering a wide variety – think bao, dumplings, fried chicken, vegan burgers, tacos, sushi in cones, egg waffles, milk and cookies and gelato to name a few. Below, I have rounded up my favourite food trucks and food stands around Auckland, so that you can go out and enjoy them as much as I do! JUDGE BAO Back in 2015, I wrote a blog post – 5 Reasons Why I Love Judge Bao. Everything I wrote in the post remains the same – the owners, Debbie and Jamie are so down to earth, very welcoming and passionate about their product. Their bao is delicious and I enjoy trying their new creations and love seeing them at various food festivals and markets. Judge Bao make soft and fluffy Chinese steamed buns filled with mouthwatering tofu, pork belly or beef (and sometimes fish and chicken), fresh herbs …

Federal Delicatessen

I have never been to an ‘old-school New York City Jewish delicatessen’ before, but if they are anything like Federal Delicatessen (“The Fed“), then I am absolutely sold. The menu is fabulous, seriously never tried ‘schticks’, ‘milk-fed schnitzel’, ‘salmon latkes’ or ‘Montreal Poutine’ before and the sweet desserts (pumpkin pie, NY cheesecake, banoffee pie, lemon meringue pie and choc cherry pie) are all absolutely delicious. Also love the decor! Art on the walls, ‘Federal’ bottomless mugs filled with filter coffee, the waitresses’ pastel outfits, the odd knick knacks when you look up (which I only noticed on my second visit to The Fed), the red lined chef’s hats and one of the coolest bar back walls I have seen around Auckland. Highly recommend ordering the ‘Montreal Poutine’. It is a Canadian dish of fries with cheese curd (melt in your mouth!) and gravy. We shared this between two of us, but it was filling nonetheless. We also tried the ‘schticks’, which are croquettes filled with peas and pastrami – such a beautiful green colour inside! These were …

Burger Burger

Last weekend, two friends and I finally made it to Burger Burger (yes, it’s been long overdue!). It was packed when we arrived, but not surprising as I have only heard good things about the place. We were told there would be a 20 minute wait, but that was okay because we went to a nearby park (Brown Reserve), swung on swings and re-lived our childhood! Upon walking in, we first noticed the décor and surroundings – so much good looking liquor! Plus the colourful mural above the liquor, the pin-striped menus, and last but not least, the waiters’ uniforms and their cool “BB” caps – we all wanted one! Before I get to the food (most important thing in life), I must talk about the service. Absolutely top notch! Our waiter explained the menu thoroughly and gave great recommendations. He was super cool (and pretty cute too!). Now, for the food… My eyes were set on the Pork Burger – mainly because it came lathered with their homemade BBQ sauce (best thing ever), but after ordering, …
