Located in the Piazza at Moore Wilson's College Street, Food Pods provide a chance for local artisans to 'pop-up' for a limited time and share their take on street food direct to the Wellington public. Here's what's on right now:
Pod 1: Origin Gourmet Food Shack
Origin is a mobile kitchen incorporating everything that is fresh, local, and healthy. Owners Dale and Kim’s business approach is to cater to dietary needs and appeal to a part of the market that often gets left behind. They place a strong focus on providing Gluten Free meals which are slow cooked to perfection and accompanied by all homemade condiments. It is a truly unique concept and has received a warm welcome on the Street Food scene.
‘Earthbowls’ are Origin’s signature dish, with vegetarian and vegan options also featuring on the menu. All meats are free range and are sourced from the Waikanae Butcher, fresh produce is sourced locally and biodegradable packaging.

Pod 2: Fat Poboys
Originally from Bali, CJ (Jimmy) Tika has called NZ home for the past 18 years.
Jimmy owns and operates the Fat Poboys Food Truck, frequenting the Newtown Market and Wellington Night Market selling Po’ boy sandwiches. Po’ boys were originally a Louisiana working class sandwich and Jimmy brings his own twist to the classic with traditional Balinese flavours and his specialty – slow cooked pork belly.
