Dutchy's News June 24

Hey hey hey!

Winter. It's winter mates. In some ways it's fab burger and chip weather and in others it's so nice to stay home and cosy! This is the season where the charcoal grill is doubling as a campfire 🥶😂

May was heaps of fun, we did some specials and had lots of banter! Holy shit you guys were hilarious in the order notes. You were also really gorgeous, many thanks x

Regular Food Truck Pop Ups | Kapiti and Horowhenua

We've been focussed on building our local regular pop ups and you'll find us consistently between Waitārere and Waikanae probably until about September!

This is our current timetable 👇🏽 we'll rinse and repeat unless we have events. Find out where we are on our homepage 📍

👏 a round of applause please because it took us 9 years to update our hours on our website regularly and we're doing a pretty good job if we do say so ourselves! and when we say 'ourselves' we mean 'myself' and 'we' is just me. 🙃 clap for me please k thx

23 June Noon til 5pm Midwinter Solstice | The Greenery 1198 SH1 Manakau

We've been a part of the quarterly events at The Greenery Garden Centre in Manakau since they started last year and it's a beautiful space for the community to come together and have dinner and roam around the garden centre and score some sweet deals. Makes so much sense for a business driven by nature to mark the seasons this way and we love it.

Join us to celebrate the Winter Solstice!

There will be food trucks, cider tasting, mulled cider, live music, entertainment for the kids and a bar for the adults

The Collective will be open and there is 20% off everything in the garden centre.


It's Matariki month!

Matariki is our favourite public holiday and fast becoming our favourite time of year. Māori new year is slowing down, spending time with loved ones celebrating people who have passed, time for reflecting and aspiring. Time around the fire with your loved ones and wider community.

We're lucky, we started our business nearly 10 years ago in Ōtaki and Māori culture is 💯 in Ōtaki!! It's a meaningful time cherishing things that really matter and we're stoked to be part of the celebrations in Ōtaki. Did we mention we love Ōtaki? WE LOVE ŌTAKI.
