Eat street cuisine from one of the city’s best food trucks

“Taco-wielding, dessert-driven rolling truckies,” as Concrete Playground describes them, are food trucks that can be found wherever they decide to anchor for mealtimes (here’s their list of ten best trucks, and here is Broadsheet’s selection). Time Out’s list of the best food trucks includes…

Melbourne Food Trucks

  • Ghost Kitchen: “Their take on the Taiwanese breakfast street food dan bing is best described as a flaky roti topped with an egg and fragrant chopped scallions that’s cooked on top while it’s still hot on the griddle.”

  • Billy Van Creamy: “They don’t play ‘Greensleeves’, but we’ll forgive that for a luscious scoop of Billy’s handmade gelato. Look out for seasonal flavours and the sensational expresso gelato.”

  • Smokin' Barry's: “It’s all about brisket cooked low, slow and smoky, baby. Jim White’s fall-apart pulled pork and beef brisket are a dream on a fluffy hotdog bun and cheesy nachos.”

  • Taco Truck: “Raph Rashid’s taco operation is a pioneer that paved the way for other trucks, and his beautifully simple battered fish taco still reigns supreme on the street taco game.”

And here’s the Lonely Planet Melbourne Guide’s listing of favourite food trucks (with their Twitter handles to check their current location):
