Stop by this funky food truck for fabulous and affordable fish and chips. Lightly battered fish melts in your mouth. The burgers are also tasty. Eat at picnic tables or take out.

My friends are big fans of Fat Tui. When they heard we were visiting Abel Tasman they seemed as enthusiastic about the burgers here as they were about the scenic delights of this beautiful part of the country. So we were looking forward to visiting....More
