The food truck revolution seems to be sweeping throughout Perth, with more and more emerging and frequenting popular spots such as the City of Perth Twilight Markets and the Cultural Centre. This progression is exciting for diners and foodies, with cuisines and specialties arising which they might not normally easily access.
It also offers a convenient and cheap alternative to what is affectionately, or rather scornfully, known as 'Perth Prices'.
There's Coxinhas which are fried balls of mashed potato with shredded chicken throughout. I'll definitely be getting this next time because it sounds amazing. There's also Choripan, which are Chorizo hotdogs and Prato Feito ($12), which is what I decided on for my lunch that day after a big internal debate in my head. That chorizo was calling my name longingly!
For those on the run, a word of warning - this order takes about 10 or so minutes to cook up. But if you're not in a hurry, then by all means indulge in this delightful brazilian steak.
There's a great combination of textures and sweet vs savoury flavours. The use of kale works really well here, the fresh green complimenting the other ingredients.
The best part of all are the yam chips, which are starchy, crisp and so moorish. I only wish there was more than just a couple of them! (But that's the greedy fried-things loving side of me.)
I'm sure I'll be visiting this truck again soon, particularly spurred by the desire to try those fried potato balls. Yum!
