Trailer Park Food of Origin: Europe
Head to Melbourne’s south for the ultimate food truck battle.
August 11, 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.
Europe can keep their summer because Melbourne’s going one better at The Village's Week 3 Trailer Park battle. The Brûlée Cart will be torchin' little cups of vanilla bean and chocolate Cointreau against the likes of Jakob's Kitchen, who are slicing buns for some gourmet sausages, including crowd favourite the eastern European cevapi sausage.
Greek Street Food are bringing skewered meats to the show and wrapping up their offerings souvlaki style. Word is, Happy Camper Pizza’s gluten free bases are more deliciously-doughy than their silver tinned wheels. Tread lightly friends and nab one with mushrooms, artichokes and gorgonzola.
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:
