Life in Auck­land can get a bit hec­tic at times. Mad March is no ex­cep­tion. Fear not, Auck­land is home to some of the great­est food truck fare on of­fer.

Melt

Is there any­thing that isn’t bet­ter with cheese? Melt thinks so and uses a raclette grill to melt cheese un­til it’s hot and creamy, then pours it over, and into, ev­ery­thing from wedges to pasta. Their best­selling dish is a cheese steak made with onions, smoked manuka ched­dar cheese and gravy.

The Lucky Taco

Tacos are a tried and true sta­ple of street food and those served by Lucky Taco won them the in­au­gu­ral out­stand­ing street food award last year. You should prob­a­bly give the Lucky Len­gua (beef tongue) a try. The dish has to be boiled and braised in herbs and spices for five hours, wrapped overnight, cut into match-sticks, and mixed with a spicy mari­nade be­fore be­ing browned and flash-fried on a hot plate.

Dou­ble Dutch Fries

For Ti­mothy van der Werff fries are the main course. His trade­mark dish is Patat Oor­log, hand-cut fries topped with may­on­naise, sa­tay sauce and finely chopped onions.

Hun­gar­ian Fried Bread

La´ngos are a pop­u­lar deep-fried flat­bread from Hun­gary that can be cov­ered in pretty much any­thing. Back home in Hun­gary Monika eats La´ngos with cream cheese and gar­lic, gar­lic, and more gar­lic. In New Zealand her stall is known for be­ing equally gen­er­ous with a wider va­ri­ety of top­pings.

The White Lady

Their truck has been parked on Com­merce and Fort for as long as we can re­mem­ber and the burg­ers and toasties are well worth the hike and have been since 1948.
