Food Truck Stop at Queen Victoria Market
The Queen Vic Market's food truck party is back to see out summer.
Queen Victoria Market's sheds weren't able to host their famed soirees for much of 2020, with Melbourne's lockdowns hitting pause on the usual roster of weekly night markets and food festivals. But, after a four-week return during the festive season, the historic site is gearing up to deliver its next post-pandemic nighttime outing. Melbourne, get set for the multicultural delights of Food Truck Stop once again.
Kicking off on February 3, and running across four Wednesday nights, the pop-up promises to fill your belly while sating a few of those international travel cravings. A rotation of the city's best-loved food trucks will be slinging their wares — think, goat curry and smashed samosas from Two Fat Indians; Nem N' Nem Viet signatures like noodle bowls and bao buns; and finger-lickin' wings and short ribs cooked low and slow by Bigger Than Texas BBQ. Most of the lineup has been to QVM before, but there will be a first-timer, so get ready to feast on lobster rolls, salt and pepper calamari and tempura-battered fish and chips from Twisted Fisherman, too.
In true QVM style, the globe-trotting eats will be backed by a great lineup of libations, with The Beer Garden pouring an all-Victorian menu featuring Melbourne Gin Company cocktails, beers by Brick Lane Brewing, Coldstream ciders and a range of vino courtesy of Mitchelton Wines.
Head on by from 5–10pm, with Food Truck Stop happening until February 24.
