Street Eats 2021

Street Food and Entertainment is what this event is all about, Street Eats 2021, were glad we tried this one out after one of our close friends gave us a couple of tickets. We did not know what to expect and was wondering it would be something like Taste of Auckland but it was not. Street Eats was smaller in scale but it was packed with exciting street food around the world, so restaurants or food trucks like Farina, Gracefully Jerked, Hāngi Master, Loco Bro’s Taqueria, Mighty Hotdogs, Mr Spicer, Mrs Higgins, Nanam, Siamese Doll, South American Oven, Sumthin Dumplin and Viki’s Vietnamese all joint forces under one roof. With that line up definitely, there is something for everyone, whether its Filipino food, Italian pasta or Korean hotdogs, you name it they have it.

It’s not just that, there are lots of bars with craft beers, wines and spirits which you can enjoy as you watch bands and DJs as they do their live performances. Performances vary and to get the most of it, if you will be visiting this event next year is to opt in for the After Dark Session (R20). This year Sweet Mix Kids, Weird Together Sound System, DJ Belville and DJ Forge to name some. But if you want to bring your kids then the Day Session would be the perfect time for you. We came here on the day session as we have some commitments that night but definitely next year, the evening session is the only way to go for us.

Great event, the food was great. Our favourite was the Truffle Tagliatelle from Farina and Hotdogs by Mighty Hotdogs, we tried other offering but these two were the standout for us. Price for food is OK where most are priced from NZ$6.00 to NZ$14.00. The only thing we did not like was the electronic AWOP wristbands which incurs a $2 activation fee on initial top up, feels like this is unnecessary. Taste of Auckland did not have this activation fee. Anyways apart from that we enjoyed it and to summarize it all, check out our Visual Essay below.

  1. Glad that you enjoyed the event! Looks fun! I am not ready to eat out and party, as the Delta variant spreads everywhere.

  2. Well that certainly looks like a fun event! Back when we lived in Atlanta, they had several great food festivals each year that we looked forward to attending. This reminds me of those! And that Truffle Tagliatelle? Made in a Parmesan wheel? Yes, please!

    I love such events! Bet those super heroes added to the fun, I’m sure. The stuffed mantao (steamed buns) caught my eye – looks good!

  6. What a fun event! I was drooling thinking about all the great food!
