Dragon wagon: Dragon Fire owner Bevan Kaan is bracing himself for a busy summer season at Little O'. By JEROME GAVELLE Pizzas at Little O , Crepes in Palm Beach, BLTs at Ostend Market, icecreams in Oneroa vil- lage, and probably this summer bratwurst, merguez and Argentin- ean chorizos on Oneroa beach -- the trailer food trend is catching on. And it is good news for people who want a quick bite on the beach without the hassle of driving to a village restaurant or takeaway. The Dragon Fire stall at Little O was the first to start the trend and because it was a pioneer it took a year to get its street trading licence. But owner Bevan Kaan says it s been worth the wait. ''Our artisan wood- fired pizzas and food have proved to be quite popular among people who know where we are, he says. Mr Kaan and his two employees are bracing themselves for the hol- iday season when Dragon Fire will be open every day from 11am until at least 8pm. The flag of Brittany will fly again this year in Palm Beach where Belle- iˆle cre ` pes et galettes will be selling its French specialities for the sec- ond year in a row. Co-owner Oana Teboul says the stall will also open every day during the holiday season. Argentinean chorizos and sausages will be available on Oneroa beach if owner Coradino Anselme gets his street trading licence in time for the holiday season. Well-known chef Mr Anselme is planning to be there every day of the week in December and January to sell his brat- wurst and merguez sau- sagesi. Dave Roast has been parking his Flaming Burger food cart at the Ostend market for two- and-a-half years and says he sees regular customers coming back every Saturday. And during the peak holiday period, icecream maker Ute Basser- mann s walking trailer ''Ice-Queen is small enough for her to push it to work. She sells her home- made gelatos -- made with Waiheke products and ingredients that mostly come from her own garden -- from her spot in the middle of Oneroa Village, next to the Island shop. There is no particular reason why the trailer food trend has developed over the last two years. Auckland Council com- munications adviser Lisah Henry says there has been no change regarding the permits for this type of activity. ''The bylaw is still valid for those governed by the former Auckland City Council, Ms Henry says. Anyone who suspects people are operating illegally should call the council on (09) 301-0101.
