Stay calm friends… a vegan street food fair is coming to Auckland and it’s happening this very weekend. Yep, just when you thought life couldn’t get any better, vegan street food becomes a thing. Permission to freak out now—granted.
Street food in general is the bees knees. An abundance of cuisines packed into one small stretch with all the aromas enveloping our happy little nostrils. We’ve always been content with it not ticking the health box because it ticks every single taste box, but that was until we knew healthy street food was possible.
Fast forward to this Sunday in Wise Cicada’s spacious Newmarket store, there is going to be more food than you can wrap your chops around as well as epic live music performed by DJ Kimba Jade. Beats and hella good eats, this is sounding a little too perfect already.
In true Wise Cicada style, the menu is nothing short of fantastic. Think Persian Gormeh Sabzi, Indian Bhel Puri and what are dubbed some of the tastiest Mexican chimichangas in town. Now for our favourite part, there is an entire Asian noodle corner featuring favourites such as Mee Goreng and Pad Thai plus an organic vegan smoothie bowl bar (!!). Holy s***, this is about as lit as plant based food gets.
So if there’s one thing you do this weekend, make it an outing that’ll leave you deliciously comatosed.
