Eats & Beats lights up Logan

For the Love of Food was an invited guest to the inaugural Eats & Beats.

Food and music brings people together and from the crowds that showed up at Logan City Council’s inaugural Eats & Beats food truck and music pop-up series, this is the event that the City of Logan has been waiting for.

Ok, so we all know that the food truck scene is nothing new but for the residents of Logan City, who don’t want to travel into Brisbane to sample the food truck scene eg., Eat Street or Food Truck Thursday, this type of event is long overdue.

Located in the forecourt between Ikea and the Logan MegaCentre, there was a definite family-friendly party atmosphere and although the food truck lines were long, people seemed contented enough to wait and enjoy the music.

DSC03966We arrived at 5.30pm and it was already starting to quickly fill with people soaking in the afternoon light in anticipation of enjoying a food coma.

Food truck favourites The King of Wings and Vira Lata did a roaring trade as did Little Black (piggy heaven) and Pizzantic along with Logan local Grandma’s Kiwi Kitchen. Over the course of the night we sampled lots of food from different trucks and everything was tasty and well presented.

The Ikea/Logan Mega Centre forecourt is the perfect location for this event, with great visibility from the highway and plenty of parking. Hopefully it’ll become a regular event that Logan residents and visitors to Logan will enjoy for many years to come.

Excellent live music was provided by Dave Powers, Neighbour, Inigo and Pocket Love.

Thank Truck its Thursday

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.

DSC03614On 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.
