COMMENTS

It’s been a bit over a year since I first posted about food trucks, food carts, portable food and my love of them. Now, the scene has changed (and my love has grown stronger!) – everything from cupcakes to curry is available for private functions – there’s even an app, Where The Truck At, that helps you track them for a quick, cheeky meal!

So together with the lovely Natasha, we made a list of every single food truck in Australia and emailed them for the details on how they cater weddings. Here’s what we found in Victoria (and other states are coming soon!)

White Guy Cooks Thai

    Sold! Come Oct next year, several of these bad boys will be feautured at our wedding. So exciting! So cheap, so delicious, so quirky.

    Any thoughts on the logisitcs of this? If the ceremony (at the farm) is at 4ish, do the trucks and food arrive while all the guests party somewhere else? Or are they there already? hmmmm. Powering them might be an issue. Generators only might be the best way.

      Hi Sophie- each truck will have it’s own power requirements, but generators might be the best way.

      Each truck also has it’s own event duration period (three hours or two etc), so I think depending on the requirements of the trucks it would be better to have them arrive for dinner (post ceremony) allowing time for setup. Would be a nice unexpected surprise for guests to see the trucks arriving!

      Hi Narelle,

      I’m sure any of the Melbourne/Victoria based trucks would travel down for a fee!
