Cytroën Type H Van

– Citroen H Food Truck –

Our journey starts in 2011 when we bought our shop fitted Citroen Type H van with the aim to send it to New Zealand. We have spent three month restoring it with love to give it a second youth and to be able to serve tasty food in the Bay of Plenty. While waiting for the truck to reach Aotearoa coast we opened L’Epicerie Deli in Whakatane.

We can come to your event with our funky food truck, it’s a perfect addition for a vintage wedding! Book it now! »
