Mix Mix Co is a Sydney food truck serving up highly photogenic Filipino desserts to the Sydney masses. Kim and Andy Ambrose — two Filipino chefs who moved to Australia back in 2013 — launched their "fiesta"-themed dessert trailer back in September 2019. Since then, it has rolled through food festivals like Parramatta Lanes, the Cake Bake Sweets Show and Parklands Food Fest.
The trailer specialises in Filipino halo halo (which means 'mix mix' in Tagalog) — a popular shaved-ice dessert that's layered with sweetened beans, coconut strips and jellies, then topped with ice cream and a drizzle of evaporated milk. But, Mix Mix Co is also inspired by other Asian desserts and uses boba and jellies across its range of sweets, too.
As well as conyelos (shaved ice desserts like halo halo) and palamig (shaved ice drinks), Mix Mix Co is plating up treats inspired by beloved Filipino fast-food chain Jollibee, such as its mango peach pie. This hand-held pie can act as a base for your ube soft serve, which is made from a brightly-coloured purple yam often used in Filipino desserts. As well as halo halo, conyelos come in flavours like mango and corn — although these change seasonally.
For drinks, expect refreshing summertime options like coconut and pandan slushies, iced coffee milk teas and ube taho: a purple yam-flavoured silken tofu dessert topped with sago pearls. As the entire menu is seasonal, new items will be added in the coming months for winter, too.
Mix Mix Co can regularly be found swirling its Instagrammable treats on Thursdays at Parramatta's Centenary Square and at Parklea Markets on weekends.
