Macao food truck moves to Melbourne
After a week on the road treating Sydneysiders to complimentary samples of Macanese delicacies, the Taste of Sydney food truck has travelled 1000kms south to offer the dishes to Melburnians, again FREE of charge.
In celebrating the 2018 Year of Gastronomy, the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) has colourfully decorated the truck to take to the streets of the Victorian capital from Friday, September 14 until Tuesday, September 18.
The pop-up restaurant will be parked at a number of major locations, the chef and kitchen team serving African Chicken, Pork Chop Buns and the traditional Serradura pudding.
The truck, a huge success in Sydney over the past weel, will cater to hungry guests in the CBD’s Federation Square, St Kilda and South Bank.
Macanese cuisine is considered one of the world’s earliest forms of fusion food – Portuguese inspired with spices collected along the maritime route between Portugal and China.
A former Portuguese enclave of 650,000 residents, Macao was recently designated by UNESCO as a Creative City for Gastronomy and is celebrating everything food throughout 2018.
