The Melbourne Food Truck Scene
The Melbourne Food Truck scene is thriving. Whether the trucks are active on the daily or they only serve their delights during special events and festivals, there’s something for everyone. Grabbing some food truck treats definitely should be on the bucket list of any Melbourne travelling enthusiast, so I thought I would compile a list of some of the best that’s out there.
1. Mr Burger
Not just a food truck, Mr. Burger also have a number of stores scattered throughout Melbourne. You’ll need to checkout their website for where they are operating their truck each week. Don’t miss out their delicious range of burgers, fries and shakes regardless of location.
2. Gumbo Kitchen
Inspired by America’s most culturally diverse city, New Orleans, Gumbo Kitchen brings a fantastic range of gourmet food to the Melbourne Food Truck Scene. It has been said that their Deep Fried Shrimp BoPoy dish is the best hangover cure in Melbourne. That is a big call. Big enough to head over and see what else they have on offer. Visit their Facebook and Twitter pages for where they are next.
In Melbourne, there are two kinds of toasties. Your regular toastie, and a Toasta toastie. The Toasta Food Truck serves toasted sandwiches that only dreams are made of! Find out where they are at via their Twitter
pages! Don’t miss out these delights as they have truly taken the toasted sandwich to a whole new level. Try out the ‘Jane’ or ‘Sammi’ sandwiches for some especially cheesy goodness.
4. Lil’ Nom Noms
Lil’ Nom Noms’ vision is to bring the best of Vietnamese street food to Melbourne. To say that they have brought this vision to life successfully is an understatement. A well known Melbourne favourite, this Food Truck provides traditional steamed bao, rice paper rolls, banh mi siders and more. Keep up to date with where the truck is at via Lil’ Nom Noms’ Facebook
5. Beatbox Kitchen
No Food Truck recommendation list would be complete mentioning the Beatbox Kitchen. Referred to as a ghetto blaster on wheels, Beatbox Kitchen offers some great burgers, including The Raph Burger for the meat lovers out there and the Shroom Burger for the vegetarians. Fries are served with moreish stereo sauce, mayo or spicy relish. Don’t miss out and keep up to date with their Twitter
page to find out where they are at.
I hope the above recommendations are making your mouth water as much as mine! If you go to any of these locations during your next visit, share your images on social media and hashtag it with #ibisstylesmelbourne
