Your mouth has never been more important in determining what other people should eat, thanks to The Village who are hosting a Food of Origin series over five weekends in August, showcasing cuisines from different continents.

Each weekend, The Village (formerly the Belgian Beer Garden) will bring together some palate-packing delights from North America, Central & South America, Europe and Asia. Your role? Go famished. Get fuelled up. Then vote for your favourite. The weekly winner will be invited back for the final Trailer Park showcase in the last weekend in August.

For the fourth week of the Trailer Park's Food of Origin, the showdown rests close to home with a selection of Asian feeds. Pork sliders and fresh spring rolls are coming at you from White Guy Cooks Thai while the portable Hammer & Tong Food Truck has got your bigger buns filled with soft shell crab and Sriracha mayo.

Nuoc Mama's beef and kimchi fries are rethinking the poutine game, thanks to their Vietnamese take on a Canadian creation. The street hustle is topped off by Gorilla Grill, who are infusing the tastes of an American kitchen with the streets of Asia. Think creamy, crunchy coleslaw served with Korean pork belly.

Drink specials (including The Village Moonshine) will also be served in undercover bar, The Arbor.


Want more? Whet those appetites further with these trucks that will be parked and waiting for you over the five weekends:

August 1-2 - North America: Mr Burger, Smokin Barrys, TOASTA, Jay's Yogurt.

August 8-9 - Central & South America: Taco Truck, Iv's Burritos, La Revolucion, Señor Churro.
