A telling sign of summer is heading out to enjoy your workday lunch in the sun instead of being cooped up in the staff kitchen.
An even more telling sign is purposely forgetting your lunch so you can take full advantage of the Food Truck Friday line-up in Takutai Square.
This Friday and every Friday until Christmas, The Food Truck Collective will be bringing a weekly-changing variety of some of the city's best food trucks to Britomart. From 11am to 2pm, you'll be able to head along and join in the collective fun with different cuisines and vendors each week.
Not only serving up great food, Food Truck Fridays also bring along a great vibe to end the week, with live entertainment and beanbags to sprawl across the Takutai grass right as the sun hits.
To kick off the season, this week's line-up includes crepe and galette experts Captain Crepes, traditional Japanese cuisine from Miso Ra, gourmet smokey wood-fired BBQ from CheLucio BBQ, and DJ Alice Rose live to keep you entertained.
With broad menus and expertly crafted dishes, there'll be something (or a whole bunch of things) that takes your fancy come Friday lunchtime.
In the future, expect to see trucks including GrownUp Donuts, Carmel Israeli, Bun Hun, Double Dutch Fries, Hapunan, & Lalele Organic Gelato make appearances during the upcoming months.
Make sure you let the office know and head down to Takutai Square this Friday from 11am to make the most of your lunch break and to kick off your weekend the right way!
