Dunedin's growing range of food trucks offer an impressive array of mobile foodie options. As well as circling the suburbs, they’re often attracting queues at the Otago Farmers Market and Mosgiel Food Truck Market.
Dumpling lovers rave about this mobile snack specialist. Its sushi and steam buns, with all the trimmings, add to the attraction. Often found at the University of Otago campus.
‘Bing’ are crunchy thin Chinese crepes served with options of eggs, onion, veges, bacon, home cooked beef and their home-made spicy chili sauce and savoury sauce. It’s a healthy choice. We know you want one.
The latest addition to the growing legion of food trucks in Dunedin, Patti’s and Cream will ensnare you with the cinnamon scent of hand-made waffle cones and the rich aroma of fresh patties on the grill. With imaginative flavours such as cheese and pear, organic apple pie, bacon infusions and beer, the ice cream is made in five litre batches, hand-added, hand-rolled featuring locally-sourced special guest ingredients such hazelnuts from Cromwell and honey from Central Otago. The burgers are simple and oh so good, served in soft milk buns to capture all the juiciness.
This funky Bedford Ambo Food Truck serves fast and delicious street food - Bao buns, loaded fries, burgers, tacos and roti. Asian-Mexican flavour combos. Seriously tasty! They are parked up on the streets of Dunedin every week - check their Facebook page to find their daily whereabouts. Message them for pre-orders, or just bowl on up to the truck and say hi.
Look for the bright, friendly Churros Olé food truck serving churro, which is a fried dough or pastry. Popular all over the world, you can dip them in luxurious velvety Spanish hot chocolate, or perhaps the indulgent 'dulce de leche' (caramel sauce). Churros Olé makes vegan-friendly Churros that contain no sugar and vegan sauce is available. But if you smother these hot delicious sticks of joy in cinnamon sugar, you have a slice of heaven. Churros Olé has shakes, sundaes and hot chocolate, too!
