EAT ART TRUCK is sydney’s first food truck and a ripper at that with its fusion-asian cuisine that really is unlike just about anything else you’d ever really eat. I’d previously gone to EAT in winter at seymoure theatre and had their chicken skin salad and rather gobsmacking chicken (or was it pork) ssam salad – deep fried vermicilli strands, koreany. quite good. Very interesting mix of flavours and food. One of the cooler things about the foodtrucks (unlike say a chain shop that does staples) is the seasonality of the food. Nothing I ate that night was up on the menu when I last visited. And the art on the back of the truck has changed. From a cold night time visit; to a warm sunny spring day.
I took a trip out to Barangaroo Gate 3 this time.
Located at Gate 3 Barangeroo. People jogging everywhere. Really sunny day
Parked near this tall tower.
Menu at a glance. Intro Eats (entrees), Mains and a dessert.
Main + dessert Combo. $18. Not exactly a cheap lunch but well worth it.
BBQ BRIKSET W KIMCHI SLAW (in a bun) with asian slaw $12. Incredible eating. Can’t quite put finger on why this works but everything in the bun was gold. Brisket was tender, juicy and flavoursome; was more braised that BBQ? Very moist meat. The kimchi was fresh, and the asian slaw had coriander (see also veggiepatch van). But that all wouldn’t have matter if the bread wasn’t good. That was a great eating sanger and it was super filling. There was a lot of ingredients and it was the right portion.
Annindofu with seasonal fruits $6
Not quite sure what an annindofu is but this was a pannacotta (almond jelly? – well yeah, googled. It is almond jelly. Palate+1) with what I am guessing to be jackfruit + shaved toasted coconut + natadeCOCO. Perfectly light, soft and really lightly scented with a nice crunch from the coconut. This didn’t taste like a sugar overload so it was really delicious. Enjoyed it tremendous and this didn’t have the chemically smell that some packet almond jellies can have. Good stuff.
EAT ART TRUCK hasn’t failed me yet. Everytime I eat here, I get a meal that’s interesting, different and quite satisfying. At a glance, this meal BBQ , Kimchi (Korean) Annindofu (Japanese), natadecoco/jackfruit (asian), Asian Slaw (asian). Yummy yummy fusion.
I can’t wait to get to EAT’s TruckStop shop that just opened in Bondi.
Can Sydney City let the food trucks park in HydePark already? What’s with all the obscure locales?!
