Trailer Park Food of Origin: Central & South America
Head to Melbourne’s south for the ultimate food truck battle.
August 03, 2015
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.
Week 2 is all about Central and South America. Latin street food vendor La Revolucion are serving their Cubanos along with their Mexican corn and herby thick-cut fries. Taco Truck are bringing a little taste of Mexico with the likes of their beans donned with salsa habanero and a fried egg.
Ever thought about adding pumpkin to your beef burrito? Iv's Burritos has, and can slip you one off their hotplates. Once you've filled yourselves silly on the savoury fare, Señor Churro has your Argentinian sweet-tooth sorted with their Nutella-filled donuts. Piping hot and gooey, they're vegan friendly to boot.
Drink specials (including The Village Moonshine) will also be served in undercover bar, The Arbor.
