Love street food, love cool tunes, love fast food that isn’t greasy and won’t break the budget, then Food Truck Thursday is for you. Held at Wandering Cooks in South Brisbane every Thursday night from 5pm, it’s laid back atmosphere and tasty food will have you re-thinking your Thursday night takeaway options.
On the night Al and I visited we had the choice of pizza, soft tacos, mini sliders and various international options from the Cha Baby truck. We started with drinks from Stone & Wood Brewing followed by three soft tacos (The Barcelona: chorizo braised in cider with potato, roast capsicum and shallots, The Kingston: spicy Jamican jerk chicken with rice, black beans and fried plantain, The Chicago: Mac n’ cheese with fresh herbs and smoked paprika). Three tacos for $15. Take a taco photo #mealforameal and get a free milo cookie. Easy!
Never having tried Cha Baby we ordered Africa: slow BBQ lamb with hummus, green chilli, arabic salad in pita ($12) and Europe: pork and veal meatballs with vodka and horseradish cream and dill potatoes ($10). The lamb was indeed slow cooked and melted in the mouth.
We arrived at 5.45pm and found a park easily in Cordelia Street. It’s a cool place to catch up with friends for a quick bite to eat.
Every Thursday from 5pm on the corner of Fish Lane and Cordelia Street, South Brisbane.
