Food truck style, options are simple here at Burrito Craft, where burritos, tacos and sides dominate the menu, and you can build your own meal with easy choices of meat and spice level. Owners Julia and Marc are Mexican food lovers from way back, and after spending some time globetrotting (and sampling the tacos everywhere they went) they decided Wanaka needed a taste of Latin America too.

Fish tacos are a favourite, and if you’re asking the crew why that is, they’ll tell you simply ‘coz it’s delicious’. Cabbage pickled with lemon and lime and a generous piece of crusted fish help the delicious award, while vegans and vegetarians are more than welcome to join the party, with all meals made to order and all tacos gluten free thanks to a clever combination of corn flour and polenta. A kids menu keeps the small people happy, and if you’re planning on eating there – there’s space aplenty at the big communal picnic table.

Sharing a courtyard area with Francesca’s, Dripping Bowl and a dumpling joint, easygoing vibes make this place a non-pretentious spot to park up and enjoy some food al fresco style. It’s just lucky there’s napkins about, because this place ain’t about fine dining with cutlery, it’s about producing finger-lickin’ good Mexican food. Open now for breakfast from 6.30am!
