The month long ‘August Eats’ promotion comes as Ormiston Town Centre’s post-opening food and beverage offering grows to include Good Dog Bad Dog, American-style BBQ Moo Moo Smokehouse and Grill, Spice Traders curry house, comfort food creators MELT Soul Food, Hong Kong yogurt drink outlet Hey! I Am Yogost, and artisan bakery Z Patisserie.

For those looking to connect and enjoy casual dining with a variety of culinary delights from around the world, The Eatery, a 400-seat shared space at Ormiston Town Centre will have a selection of special offers, entertainment, and giveaways throughout August – as well as a fun and whimsical selfie backdrop experience for young and old.

Facing out towards the north, The Eatery is a bright? and vibrant oasis with floor to ceiling windows and doors, and interiors that draw reference to Auckland’s dramatic geological history, following an abstract pathway under the Southern sky.

For those wanting to make a night of it, wind down after work or wine and dine with that special someone, the outdoor restaurants and bars in The Square –MOGLY , Moo Moo Smokehouse & Grill, MELT Soul Food , Journal Café and Bird on Wire – will make sure everyone is catered for in August.

Ormiston Town Centre Marketing Manager Monique Matthews says that Ormiston Town Centre is gaining recognition as a unique and authentic dining destination.

“We’ve had some great feedback from the Ormiston community and wider public about the hidden gems at Ormiston Town Centre, and with most of our food and beverage outlets now open, August felt like the right time to shout about it.

“We’re really excited to welcome our community back to trial some of the new and different offerings, and to encourage new visitors to come and find out what Ormiston is all about,” says Matthews.

Everyone that spends $30 with a food retailer at Ormiston Town Centre in the month of August will enter the draw to win a $200 gift card.
