Scott Barrett and Zoe Lloyd are enjoying serving up their popular street food to Miramar residents.

Eat Street hits Miramar By Nikki Papatsoumas

There is a brand new bright blue food truck in town much to the delight of Miramar locals. Eat Street is the brainchild of Wellington chefs Steve Barrett and Zoe Lloyd. Steve previously owned the wildly popular Elements Cafe in Lyall Bay and Zoe worked alongside him. Together with Steve’s wife Nicola the trio has officially opened for business on Park Road in Miramar. This comes after the group purchased their bright blue food truck from Tauranga. Following extensive modifications

the group said they were thrilled they could now fire up the grill. “We had been chef dreaming over what we could do and we were all keen on the food truck thing,” Scott said. “One thing led to another and here we are.” When developing a menu Scott said they wanted to offer a healthy salad, something in the deep fryer, as well as gluten free and vegetarian options. Zoe said they wanted to be able to offer food from all around the world – whether that was a burger or a taco. “We want to have food that is

interesting as well as stuff that no one has had before,” she said. The pair said their philosophy was to offer tasty fast food. “There are no hidden ingredients – if someone asks us what is in our burger patties we can tell them,” said Scott. Scott said everyone had been “hanging out” to see what they were going to do. “Lots of them have been very curious and have visited already to check out what we are doing.”  Eat Street is located at 127 Park Road in Miramar and is open Monday to Friday.

Christmas Food Rescue Appeal kicks off Countdown and the Salvation Army have kicked off their annual Christmas Food Rescue Appeal to help the growing number of New Zealanders who have registered for food assistance. Countdown is encouraging shoppers to make a food donation in-store, or a cash donation at the checkout as part the annual Food Rescue Appeal. The Salvation Army’s National Secretary for Social Services, Major Pamela Waugh, said around 26,000 families would ask for food assistance by the end of December.


“Many families come to us with complicated debt issues that need in depth work over a long period. “Most of those very fragile families have no disposable income for Christmas while other families are only just surviving on their income and need extra assistance. Major Waugh says celebrating Christmas is important for a child’s social inclusion. “Our food hampers usually contain meat, vegetables, dessert, fruit and treats that allow families to mark

Christmas as a special occasion. “Without this some families have a bleak Christmas that’s just a normal day. When school starts in the New Year, other children are talking about their fun Christmas and holidays. What do these children have to contribute if their Christmas has been a non-event?” The most needed food items for the Christmas Food Rescue Appeal include pasta and rice, cereal, canned food, sauces and spreads, baby food and toiletries, hygiene and cleaning products including nappies.
