Urban Street Fest made its thrilling debut in September last year, attracting thousands keen to get their next hit of made-to-order pasta and steamed buns. An equally as popular second event quickly followed in Ponsonby, proving that dinner on the run is fashionable in Auckland.
The street food hangout is set to return in April, this time in the rising foodie destination of Orakei Basin— the suburb is most recently home to a new Brothers Beer and will soon welcome Bird on a Wire and another outpost of Mexican Specialties.
Once again, organisers have premeditated the unpredictable Auckland weather and have secured an indoor venue. The first USF event for 2017 will take place at the old Kings Plant Barn. Details of the full vendor lineup are coming in hot, and you can expect everything from Judge Bao with their modern take on traditional Chinese dishes, Korean-Mexican fusion food vendors Coreano, made-to-order pasta makers Got Pasta, organic smoothie bar RAWE, authentic Dutch fry friers Double Dutch Fries and Guerrilla Grill with their grilled cheese sandwich Land Rover.
Live music is also a component of the event. Artists are yet to be confirmed. Stay tuned for more information.
