Track down this food truck for the best street food
Hailed as the best in Adelaide. A trip to the Gepps Cross Sunday Market or the Parafield Farm Direct Market is not complete without visiting this food truck and indulging in the ubiquitous grilled meat roll or the other tempting food options on the menu.
Tammy's Meat Rolls Food Truck can be found on Port Wakefield Road in the Godfrey's carpark just south of the Port Wakefield Road entrance to the Gepps Cross Sunday market. They are there from 8 am - 1pm every Sunday. You will also find them at the Parafield Farm Direct Market on King Road behind the P.A.L liquor store from 8am - 1pm, every Wednesday and Saturday.
The mobile food truck is open for breakfast and lunch. Menu's are prominently displayed and the prices are fantastic for the food you receive. Great value.
My favourite is the flag ship grilled meat roll which is usually priced at $5. Equally scrumptious is the crisp pork belly roll. Second favourite is the meat salad vermicelli noodle bowl at around $7.50. And after 14 years living in South East Asia I can say this is as close as it gets to the authentic taste and freshness of food from that region. For something a little different the pork mince and chicken skewers are also mouth watering and will cost around $3.50. Lemon grass chicken is delicious and the spring rolls are a perfect early morning snack.
The good news is that Tammy's food truck now has a sister in Toly's Gourmet Vietnamese Street Food Truck. You can find Toly's food truck at Torrens Island Market from 7am - 1pm on Sundays and at Flinders University.
Their facebook page here keeps you up to date with their latest locations and special pop up appearances. If you want to call them direct to confirm their location their number is 0430303550.
Many a person I've spoken to, particularly those in the line for this great street food after a morning at the Gepps Cross market, say "Tammy's meat rolls are the best and freshest" and "street food at its best".
Add Tammy's Food Truck and Toly's Gourmet Vietnamese Street Food Truck to your list of 'must try' Vietnamese meat rolls and you won't be disappointed.
