Adelaide might have rolled in late to the global food truck party, but it has made up for lost time. The city’s street food scene has revved up with dozens of trucks serving hungry students, office workers and foodies. Low & Slow American BBQ keeps Aussies and American expats alike happy with brisket, pulled pork, ribs and Texas beans. Burger Theory’s hamburgers are so popular it’s added a bricks and mortar presence on Union Street that also features a frozen custard machine to make all your ice-cream dreams come true. Meanwhile, La Chiva’s Amazon rice with chocolate-chilli sauce unites South Australian produce with South American street food flavour.
Food trucks gather at locations such as North Terrace, Victoria Square, Hindmarsh Square and the Riverbank Precinct. Find them with the Where The Truck app or at one of the regular Fork on the Road events.
