Ascot Vale's permanent food truck park has played host to festivals dedicated to everything from espresso martinis to potato cakes and halal snack packs. Now, it's dedicating Saturday, May 18, to a legendary Aussie pub meal: the chicken parmigiana.

Whether you're team parma or parmy (or, god forbid, parmi), you'll agree this dish has long deserved its own day of celebration. The chicken, breaded and fried to golden perfection, is topped with plenty of cheese and sauce (and maybe ham) and served with a decent handful of chips — it's a recipe that really can't be improved too much.

If you agree, head along to the Ascot Lot this weekend and dig into the pub menu icon created by the likes of The Pickle & the Patty, Parma Bites, Jake's Kitchen, Just Like Nonna and more. If you're vegan, vego or GF, fear not — there'll be options for you here, too.

Jugs of The Lot lager and cider will also be going for just $10 with every parma purchase, and there'll be five different espresso martinis available for a tenner. As always, the food truck park is dog-friendly, so bring along your four-legged pals, too.
