Bent­wood Cof­fee

If there’s one thing you need af­ter a scenic trip to Mt Welling­ton, it’s a de­cent cup of cof­fee. Whether it’s to thaw out your frozen bones or un­wind af­ter a hard hike, Bent­wood can pro­vide the goods. The van op­er­ates at the Springs from Wednes­day to Sun­day, while it can also be found serv­ing es­presso mar­ti­nis at the Ho­bart Twi­light Mar­ket.

Taco Taco

One of Ho­bart’s most pop­u­lar food vans, Taco Taco has been pump­ing out Mex­i­can de­lights since 2013. Since then, it has built a sec­ond truck for cater­ing events such as wed­dings and other cel­e­bra­tions, and fed the masses at nu­mer­ous street lo­ca­tions and large fes­ti­vals with the orig­i­nal. Taco Taco can be found all over Ho­bart, visit taco­ta­co­tas.com.au for more in­for­ma­tion.

The Funky Cac­tus

An Amer­i­can-Mex­i­can style food truck, The Funky Cac­tus spe­cialises in fun, cre­ative, and dif­fer­ent food. Op­er­at­ing for the past three years, it has built a rep­u­ta­tion for qual­ity food, with the Philly cheese steaks, bur­ri­tos, and range of loaded cheese fries par­tic­u­lar hits with cus­tomers. The Funky Cac­tus can be found most com­monly in Bathurst St in Ho­bart and in Main Road, Moonah.

The Em­ber Box

The Em­ber Box is a pizza van spe­cial­is­ing in hand­crafted wood-fired piz­zas. It started in April this year af­ter be­ing trans­ported from the Nether­lands, where it had op­er­ated since 2014, and the piz­zas have been very well re­ceived by the lo­cal com­mu­nity. The Em­ber Box can reg­u­larly be found in Evans St, Ho­bart, and also pro­vides pri­vate cater­ing in and around the city.
