As another sunny weekend is anticipated, we’re looking ahead to all of the culinary events drawing us outdoors this weekend. Featuring some household names alongside new future classics, these are the three food events you need to discover this weekend — if nothing else.
Baby G Burger at Crayon Classic
It’s been quite some time since we’ve indulged in Baby G’s beloved smash burgers. So, come Sunday afternoon, this is precisely where you’ll find us. Catering to the hungry masses at the inaugural Crayon Classic at Pompallier Tennis Club (which, by all accounts, sounds like an epic event for anyone looking to jump into a little casual weekend tennis) alongside an Almighty hydration station, it’s the most delicious burger event to take in the final hours of the week.
Sunday, 3pm — 8pm.
Food Truck Night at Victoria Park
An early pioneer of the Auckland pop-up scene, Food Truck Collective’s tasty nights are back this Friday, taking over Victoria Park for anyone wanting to do knock-offs right. From 5pm, a whole host of food trucks will converge on the inner-city park, such as Miso Ra, Double Dutch Fries, Taste of Rwanda and Lalele Organic Gelato and Waffles (should you have saved room for dessert). This is the kind of affair you’ll want to grab your group and a picnic blanket, before settling in for the late afternoon.
Friday, 5pm — 9pm.
Broke Boy Taco Residency at Ante Social Club
Now a month into a residency at Ponsonby’s Ante Social Club, Broke Boy Taco’s sought-after morsels are once again becoming the talk of the town. Known for creating Mexican-inspired street food inspired by his days in San Francisco’s Mission District, Sean Yarborough is quickly making a name for himself as the purveyor of some of the tastiest tacos in town at all the best food events in Auckland.
Thursday to Saturday, 5pm — 9pm.
