After eagerly following their Twitter updates, we finally headed out to Trailer Park Melbourne yesterday!
With 5 food trucks in the one place and full service from the bar at Village Melbourne, we enjoyed some food truck tucker with baby in tow. Beatbox Kitchen, Gumbo Kitchen, The Curry Truck, Cornutopia and newcomer The Brulee Cart were the trucks on show and we were spoilt for choice!
It was a cold Melbourne day so we rugged up and were warmly greeted by lots of heaters and even an undercover area with plenty of tables, benches and a row of gazebos – well planned. Our little ones kept nice and toasty sitting under the outdoor heaters as we went to order our food. The large communal tables also meant that you could easily get into friendly conversation with the fellow food truck diners sitting next to you at this much loved watering hole (Village Melbourne is the former Belgian Beer Cafe – I wonder how long it’ll take for us all to stop saying that!).
We arrived just after 12:30pm and it wasn’t as busy as I expected it to be. The waiting time for most of the food truck wares was around 15-20mins. Lucky we ordered when we did because it got busier about an hour later. Going with a group of friends meant that we were able to taste everything from the po’ boys, curry and burgers, to the tacos and creme brulee. My faves were the Buffalo chicken po’ boys from Gumbo Kitchen (tender, well-flavoured chicken) and the dark chocolate and peppermint creme brulee from The Brulee Cart (smooth with a crisply torched top). The better half and some friends had the epic double burger from Beatbox Kitchen where they asked for both the Raph and Shroom burger in one (is there an official name for it!?). It is $15 and so worth it! You gotta try it! We’ll be back again to try the Tequila and lime creme brulee and more!
If you are after a kid-and-adult friendly place to share good food, drinks, dessert and conversation in an outdoor venue that considers Melbourne’s crazy weather, Trailer Park hits all the spots…complete with hanging flamingos! Just make sure you stick to the path as there is currently construction taking place on the grounds.
The kids approve! – all smiles!! 🙂
