Drive in food coming to Southbank streets

Gourmet food outlets are literally driving into town in June and Southbank gets to share in the fun.

The City of Melbourne is trialing food trucks in popular lunchtime spots across Melbourne, including on St Kilda Rd out the front of the NGV.

Food trucks taking part in the trial include the Taco Truck, Gumbo Truck and Bahn Mi Boys.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said the trucks added to Melbourne’s fantastic food culture.

“Food trucks have come a long way from the roadside doughnut stands and fried-food caravans of yesteryear,” Cr Doyle said.

“Gourmet food vans are a defining part of the culinary scene in global cities such as Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and London. Melbourne’s food trucks are some of the best in the business and are an important part of what makes us Australia’s culinary capital,” he added.

“The trial is the first step towards making the City of Melbourne more welcoming for food truck operators and much more accessible to the hundreds of thousands of residents, workers and visitors who come to the city every day.”
