Anticipating Street Eats 2014

Photos from our Street Eats visit last year.

A highlight of Auckland Restaurant Month is Street Eats this Saturday. Once again in the covered Shed 10 on Queens Wharf, this is a free, family-friendly event. See my review of the first Street Eats last year here.

Last year, my friend Coco and I sampled five different $5 dishes between us for $25 plus a $6 beer each making it less than $20 per person. Staying pretty true to street food, we ate deep fried food, food on sticks and pizza.

This year I might splash out with $30 or $40 so I can try a few more dishes and perhaps another tipple.

I hope they have the deep fried milk again (pictured top row, middle). It’s been a year since I had it and I’m hoping I can eat it again. If you have never tried deep fried milk, you are missing out. It’s like eating the silkiest deep fried custard. It’s magic. Worth burning your mouth for.

Tips for Street Eats

  • Bring an appetite
  • Bring a friend to share dishes with
  • Bring cash (the EFTPOS line is 9652 miles long)
  • Go early, before noon, as many places sell out early
  • Park in the Viaduct $6 all day carpark or take public transport

Restaurants you’ll find at Street Eats include Bellota​, Besos LatinosFISHImaCuisineIVillageL’AssietteLe Garde-MangerMerchants of Venice, MexicoMonsoon PoonOrleansThai StreetThe Food TruckThe Grill, Toto PizzaUrban Turban and Y Not.
