Following the success of its pop-up wine bar in July, ALDI is hosting another one-off hospitality event — this time slinging incredibly cheap dumplings. Last month, Sydneysiders got excited when ALDI announced it was launching a bar in the CBD for two nights, offering gin, wine and cheese for the low price of $4.41. Now, the supermarket chain is back with a dumpling truck that will arrive at the Bankstown Central ALDI store's car park for just two hours today, Friday, August 12.

To promote the brand's affordable dumpling range, the ALDI dumpling truck will offer serves of six gyoza (three prawn and three chicken) for just $1.44. The price represents how much dumplings can cost from the ALDI Urban Eats range — $8.99 per 750-gram packet, which comes to 25 cents per prawn dumpling and 23 cents per chicken dumpling.

Unlike ALDI's two-nights-only bar, which allocated spots via a ballot system, the food truck is popping up on Chapel Road from 5–7pm, or while stocks last, and will run on a first-come-first-served basis. There are two caveats, however: a limit of four servings per person, and card-only transactions.

"At a time when consumers are feeling the pinch, it's rewarding to provide an option for people to still enjoy their Friday night rituals when they shop with us," ALDI's Frozen Food Buying Director Andrew King said.

"The ALDI dumpling truck demonstrates how good food doesn't have to hurt your pocket. You can dish up quick, delicious and affordable Friday dinners at home for less than $1.50 a serve!"

If you can't make it to Bankstown, you can, of course, recreate the experience at home by heading to your local ALDI and picking up a couple of bags of dumplings.

All proceeds from the dumpling truck will also be going to a good cause, with ALDI promising to donate the money it earns from the promotion to its national charity partner, Camp Quality.

The ALDI dumpling truck will pop-up at ALDI Bankstown Central, 440–450 Chapel Road, Bankstown from 5–7pm on Friday, August 12 — or until sold out.
