Introducing the Eat Adlib Fry Bread Food Truck
We are the quintessential Kiwi family.
As half-caste Aucklanders with Niuean, Maori, Scottish, Welsh and English roots, we epitomise the cultural melting pot that is Aotearoa.
Raising our family of three children in Te Atatu North, we love being immersed in the local community. Coaching school netball, running the Garden to Table programme at our daughter’s primary and volunteering on different committee groups. Our ethos is ‘if you can why not!’ and now with our food truck business venture we love being able to connect further with the West Auckland community and share our passion for celebrating food with the wider Auckland region.
After 22 years of working in restaurants, cafes & hotels, a stint as the kitchen manager at a drug & alcohol treatment centre prompted James’ desire to share his passion and love for creating food that makes people smile.
When we launched our food truck Eat Adlib, our original intention was to provide a flexible menu option to fill a gap at a market or an event. Whilst experimenting with different menus we quickly realised our Loaded Fry Bread was a community favourite and to avoid customer disappointment when returning to an event, we decided to make it our signature offering.
Our Fry Bread Food Truck showcases our Kiwi version of a cultural favourite – Fry Bread. We have taken a simple family staple and perfected our handmade dough which is then lovingly deep fried. To celebrate the many cultural culinary delights available in our beautiful country, James is continuously creating a variety of fresh, flavoursome accompaniments to be either loaded on top of the fry bread in an open sandwich style, filled into a fry bread roll or served on the side to rip & dip.
Featured on most of our menus you will find our personal favourites with a nod to our Pacific and Maori heritage – Ota ika (raw fish), Pork & Watercress and Kumara & Cashew. In the winter months, Mussel Chowder makes an appearance.
Being a fully self-contained kitchen on wheels we can cater for both private & public events in almost any location. Eat Adlib Fry Bread Food Truck is perfect for work functions, family celebrations, or as catering at a gig.
