Titirangi has long been regarded as the gateway to the West’s wind-swept beaches and breathtaking Waitākere Ranges — and it’s fast becoming a destination in itself for diners looking to invigorate their usual line-up of eateries.
The newest opening, Street Feast, is pulling out all the stops with a modern food hall experience at The Rise development. Bringing together seven of the best independent street food operators from the wider Auckland area, it’s hard to leave after just one order.
Two Denizen favourites — Jo Bro’s Burgers and Loco Bro’s — create the definitive dishes we know and love — from a wagyu beef burger to a Doble Birria taco — only made even better with fresh ingredients and fresher approaches.
From Dominion Road, Stumpy’s Pizza is hand-tossing its original thin base pizzas, topped with Mediterranean flavours. We might have to try in the ‘Gigante’ size to share with friends.
From NomNom food truck, SaPa Kitchen adds Vietnamese street food to the line-up. Its name is a nod to the mountainous town of Sa Pa that overlooks the terraced rice fields of the Mường Hoa Valley. It’s serving favourites like Bánh mì (with baguettes baked in-house) and rich, fragrant Pho noodle soup, wok-fried rice and crispy chicken.
Meanwhile, from Auckland’s Fish Market, Mar & Tierra will offer a unique take on Colombian flavours and street food married with local produce and seafood. We can’t go by their cazuela, a bowl of quinoa and beans, avocado, pickled vegetables, spring onion, coriander, and puffed rice, or traditional arepa (corn cakes) prepared over a warm grill.
To top it off with something sweet, Wen & Yen have created a dessert bar, which offers their decadent doughnuts, cakes, tarts and waffles along with the award-wining Little ‘Lato gelato. It can be hard to choose between their soft and fluffy doughnuts, with plenty of gluten-free and vegan options, but you can’t go wrong with the classics sprinkled with cinnamon.
If you’re thirsty, the resident bar Churly’s Rise has come from Mount Eden, and is manned by the team behind Behemoth Brewing Company’s craft beer.
As well as a state-of-the-art indoor food hall, with digital ordering about to be configured, Street Feast is also opening an outdoor deck for soaking up the afternoon sun. Street Feast’s overarching aim is to claim Titirangi’s place as the foodie capital of West Auckland. Seeing this line-up of eateries come together from all over the city, we think it’s well on its way.
