Sydney Food Trucks have one of the foodie hypes recently and I have been so jealous of my friends posting up their food truck dinners on their instagram. So there was really no other option but to get my red hot hands on one of these babies. I heart food street food, street food on wheels makes it so much fun.

These trucks are only at a location for two to three hours each time. There aren't that many of them around, mainly because they require council approval before they can park their 4 wheels down. Their weekly times and locations are posted one week beforehand so you might want to cross your fingers and toes that they are somewhere close within your vicinity. Currently, their locations are all around Sydney and it hasn't been too hard to get to.
There are two types of Sydney Food Trucks: Eat Art Truck and a Cantina Mobil (mexican food). Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to try both so I will still be on the hunt for the Cantina Mobil when the chance comes around.
|Eat Art Truck at Queens Square|
|Shimichi chicken wings with mayo - $8|
|Pulled pork in a hot dog bun with spicy American sauce - $12|
|Ssam - Spatchcock Chicken with fried noodles - $12|
The shimichi chicken wings was amazeballs - if I was to order this again, I would not share this. Call me fat but I wanted to demolish it all. It was soo damn good, especially with the mayo. So for those that are also a fan of wings - do not (I repeat, do not) share this. Be selfish and have it all to yourself.
The pulled pork 'hot dog' was a favourite. I arrived at Queens Square by 7 and by 7.30, it was already sold out. Not surprised to be honest because it is pulled pork. I thought it was pretty good but I didn't think it was that amazing but then again, I am not the biggest fan of pulled pork out there. It looked small-ish but it was actually more filling than it appeared.
The ssam was a bit strange to be honest, not sure if I liked it or didnt. The fried noodles was clever because it gave it an extra crunch and the greens made it taste refreshing but I didn't think there was enough chicken there.
Overall, I think food wise, it was good. Personally though, it might have been a tad over hyped and the prices seemed a bit high if you were to compare it to take away food. The food was more fancy than your typical take away food so I guess that kind of justifies its price.
Nevertheless, it was heaps of fun to hunt down one of these food trucks. Can't wait to hunt down for the cantina mobil!
