Stop dreaming about those LA taco trucks and get your neck back in your own yard. Sydney has now joined the ranks of cities offering quality snacks on wheels. The City of Sydney initiative are putting out a series of test trucks to see how Sydney takes to it (very bloody well, we imagine). The 10 trucks taking the streets are mixing it up with the likes of burgers, tacos, burritos, spelt pizze, steamed pork buns, things on sticks, healthy breakfast foods and fresh juices as well as grilled meats and pulled pork sandwiches. The trucks will be making their way around Sydney and will be confirming their locations closer to feeding time via Facebook and Twitter.
Catch the following trucks around town real soon:
