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 burritos everywhere they went) they decided Wānaka needed a taste of Mexico 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 are plenty of communal picnic tables to choose from.

Sharing a communal area with a mix of other food trucks, easygoing vibes make this place a non-pretentious spot to park up and enjoy some food al fresco style. It’s just lucky there are napkins about because this place ain’t about fine dining with cutlery, it’s about producing finger-lickin' good Mexican food. Open 7 days 12pm-9pm.
