Get be­hind this Truck

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food - Ju­lian Wright

GET ready to rum­ble Perth food­ies, with the fourth Food Truck Rum­ble pulling into the Perth Cul­tural Cen­tre on Sun­day, March 27.

Perth’s big­gest food truck fes­ti­val re­turns this month with 30 food trucks, each pro­vid­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to try some new and ex­clu­sive sig­na­ture dishes.

An early launch on March 13 gave Perth me­dia and blog­gers a sneak peak at a range of scrump­tious sweet and savoury good­ies that will be on of­fer.

Those feel­ing ad­ven­tur­ous with their meat choices can give La Careta’s ox tongue soft taco with a hint of spice and a Latin twist a chance, which may be a spe­cial treat for the event.

The amus­ingly named Get Chips or Die Fry­ing dished up a gen­er­ous heaped serv­ing of meat­balls and herbed fries, but

the pre­ma­ture sell-out of the ve­gan op­tion is a good sign for those avoid­ing the meat ver­sion – some­thing that pop­u­lar must be great-tast­ing.

A fresh, crisp and sum­mery salad from Eat No Evil was a wel­come ad­di­tion and al­ter­na­tive.

De­spite an amaz­ing line-up of savoury meals, there was a mad dash for the carts of­fer­ing the sweet se­lec­tions.

Louis Boeglin Pâtis­serie served a cream-in­fused treat with a lime twist that takes your taste­buds straight to the streets of Paris, while La Paleta’s gen­er­ous bowl of cream, salted caramel, split ba­nana and peanut but­ter ice-cream on a stick was heav­enly.

The Food Truck Rum­ble will also boast a popup bar, the big­gest break danc­ing com­pe­ti­tion in WA and RTRFM pro­vid­ing the live sound­track.
