Why food trucks?
The flexibility of being able to serve new and current customers at different locations.
What were you doing before you got your food truck? What’s your background in food?
Worked as a chef in the past and currently in the horticultural industry.

What’s your favourite item on the menu?
We love all our toppings, each of them have their own unique flavour of the world.
Which suburbs do you usually operate in? Where’s your most popular stop?
How do most people find out about your truck?
Word of mouth and social media.
Why do you think food trucks have become so popular?
Food trucks have become popular because the inspiration comes from other countries’ street food, their cuisine and popularity have made us want that same trending concept here in Australia as well.
Favourite music to listen to in the truck?
There’s no need to play music in the truck, there’s always bands playing at most of the great events.
Do you harbour any dreams of opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant?
Not really, because our passion is travelling to all different locations in the truck.
If your Food Truck was a Transformer, its name would be…
