Sydney’s First Food Trucks

“A fleet of 10 food trucks has been chosen to deliver on something Sydneysiders told the City they want: more quality food at all hours,” announced Lord Mayor Clover Moore.

A food truck is a mobile eatery that travels to different locations in the city. The 10 successful operators will serve up exciting new food options, including modern Australian from a former Tetsuya’s Sous Chef, steamed yum cha, and veggie burgers from a truck shaped like a barn – complete with herb garden on the roof.

The operators chosen are: Agape, Al Carbon, Bite Sized Delights, Burger Theory (as seen above), Cantina Mobil, Eat Art Truck, Let’s Do Yum Cha, Taco Truck, Tsuru, Veggie Patch.

“Food trucks have taken off in LA, London and other major cities by offering good-quality food in a quick, affordable and fun way. We’re taking it a step further by ensuring that Sydney’s food truck operators serve high-quality food and meet the highest health and environmental standards,” the Lord Mayor said.

More than 30 hopeful operators lodged applications when the City sought expressions of interest last year. The hopefuls went through a rigorous testing process that looked at their business plans and background and compliance with health and waste management codes. The last step was a taste test, where contenders had an hour to cook meals from their proposed truck menu.

The trucks will start to hit the streets in the coming weeks. The City is lodging development applications for 13 sites across the LGA where the trucks can operate. Likely sites include Belmore Park and Customs House Forecourt and Sydney Park.
