Forest Taco Night 
Plant-based eatery Forest is whipping up its signature tacos this Thursday and we'd suggest arriving early to make sure you nab a few. Toppings are made with ingredients sourced or foraged locally on homemade authentic tortillas making these vegetarian morsels are delicious. There will also be dishes of fried cauli, housemade chips and dips, and Garage Project brews adding to the feast. The Eden Terrace restaurant is small so there's also the option to BYO a takeaway container and get the tacos to go. No bookings required. Thursday, January 30, from 5pm until sold out. 177 Symonds St, Eden Terrace
