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: Mao & Co
Inspired by the amazing night food markets around Asia, Mao & Co. owners Drew and Tom bring delicious handmade dumplings and noodles to Wellington. Both experienced chefs, Drew and Tom share a love and passion for good quality, reasonable priced Asian fusion cuisine.
Mao the Cat, their logo, is based on the Japanese Cat, "Maneki - Neko", a symbol of good luck and fortune.
Mao and Co.’s dumplings are made with the freshest seasonal produce and their handmade pastry is coloured with 100% pure vegetable juice! Dumplings are served poached (a healthier alternative to frying) and loaded with flavour.
