Ze Pickle has long been the king of Queensland's monster burger trade, as anyone who has been to their stores in Burleigh Heads or Fortitude Valley will know. But, that wasn't enough for these meat-and-bread slingers. First, they expanded to Sydney. Now, as they promised a few months back, they're launching their own food truck, hitting the road and handing out free burgers to mark the occasion.
Meet Ze Qickle, the 1984 Chevy that was once used a fake FedEx van, was then seized in a drug bust and bought from a police auction in Los Angeles, and is now about to become the new culinary ruler of the highway. If Ze Pickle's mammoth creations were going mobile, they were always going to do so in a less-than-ordinary way. Ze Qickle makes its debut at the Social Markets at Mermaid Beach on November 5, and then heads to Burleigh Hill from 3pm on November 6 to hand out the oh-so-good stuff for zilch.
Free food lovers (aka everyone) and burger aficionados will know that their stacked creations are worth the trip to the coast. And for your troubles, you'll get one of hundreds of their signature Chee-ze burgers (made with a hand-pressed wagyu beef patty, maple smoked bacon, iceberg, tomato, fried onion straws, zp sauce & jack cheeze) as well as some of their house-made bubblegum lemonade. Yum.
Next stop, Brisbane, with the truck stopping off at Green Beacon Brewing on November 11. Plus, the Ze Qickle brand is here to stay, and not just in roaming culinary form, with the burger brand planning a series of hole-in-the-wall joints that'll bring their gut-busting burger towers to more nooks and crannies around the place.
Ze Qickle will be handing out free burgers from 3pm on November 6 at Burleigh Hill on the Gold Coast. For more information, keep an eye on the Ze Pickle Facebook page.
