A Street Food Wonderland
Every Thursday evening, Tutanekai Street in Rotorua comes to life with the popular Rotorua Night Market. Visitors and locals wander through throngs of hungry crowds snaking their way through a bewildering array of delectable food trucks, stalls and tents amid thumping tunes and, later in the evening, dazzling lighting.
The weekly event is situated between the hours of 5pm and 9pm, on Tutanekai Street between Pukuatua Street and Haupapa Street and is a major tourist attraction for visitors looking for a variety of different food after adventuring during the day.
Fresh food and vegetables are also available, and the numerous shops that line Tutanekai Street provide a welcome respite from the milling crowd for souvenir hunters and those seeking a restaurant, rather than a street food experience. The eclectic nature of the weekly festival includes live music from buskers (one playing a Hang to great interest from bystanders) and a colourful tent to one end with a man cheerfully reciting poetry.
Fresh Fruit and Vegetables
The diverse food on offer ranges from traditional New Zealand fare including whitebait and paua fritters to churros, steamed dumplings, nachos, curry wurst, crepes, toasties, barbecued meats, okonomiyaki and Cornish pasties.
Barbecued Pork Skewers
If you're in Rotorua and in search for some good quality street food in a carnival style atmosphere served piping hot off the street, the Rotorua Night Market is a perfect for a few hours of gastronomic pleasure at a reasonable price.
