Taking a hard-knock during the lockdown, The Auckland Food Truck Collective (responsible for a number of our favourite roll-up food vendors such as Double Dutch Fries, Wise Boy Burgers, and Taco Loco) had to cancel all of their events, including the 2020 Fried Chicken Festival.
But, they've risen from the ashes and are coming back in full-force to bring us some of Auckland's most sought-after vendors – as safely and conveniently as possible.
On Friday, June 12th, Eden Park will be open for a one-of-a-kind drive-thru experience. Staying safe and comfy in your car, you'll be able to pull up to Eden Park and place your order via your phone. Your chosen food truck (or trucks, don't forget dessert) will prepare your order and bring it straight to you in your car – no waiting in the freezing cold queue! Take your meals home and enjoy them in the comfort of your warm, dry abode.
So far, the line-up is as exciting as it could possibly be for a first drop – with more to be announced shortly. Dutch legends Double Dutch Fries will be there, serving up their famous mayo fries, as well as Jo Bro's and their easy-going burgers made from local produce, Brotisserie's organic rotisserie chicken and seasonal salads, and Lalele's Organic Gelato for a sweet ending.
Keep an eye on the event page here for upcoming trucks and to register your interest!
