Otis & Sarah Frizzell

Slinging authentic and delicious Mexican street food to taco-loving Aucklanders since 2013, The Lucky Taco is the brain-child of husband and wife team Sarah and Otis Frizzell.
Stepping away from their respective vocations – Sarah in corporate marketing; Otis is a famed visual artist – the Frizzell’s hatched a plan to launch their own food truck after a trip through the USA, where they feel in love with food truck culture and taco vendors specifically. Eight years after hitting the streets of Auckland, The Lucky Taco is a cult favourite amongst the city’s gourmands - popping up weekly at venues around Auckland and providing bespoke onsite catering at exclusive events around the city. Sarah and Otis’ determination to deliver authentic flavours and attitude via this most humble of street eats has seen them winning praise and plaudits at every turn – culminating with a recent win in the 2021 Lewisham Awards for Outstanding Urban Eats.
