The growing legion of food truck fans across Melbourne can now stand up to be counted. Your top food trucks are rolling out with gusto across the city from 4 June as part of a 3-month trial. It ain't just your familiar American Donuts at Queen Victoria Market. Think burgers, tacos, pizzas, dumplings and even muesli on wheels. Thanks to the good folks at the City of Melbourne, our food trucks will no longer be seeking out festivals and events just to serve you.

Twelve gourmet food truck operators have been selected by the City of Melbourne to participate in this trial of moving feast based on their uniqueness and originality of concepts, food quality on offer, quality of the vans, popularity levels etc. The operators include Mr Burger, Let's Do Yum Cha, Round the Way Bagels, Lil Nom Noms, Gumbo Truck, Taco Truck, Coffee PEDDLR, Happy Camper Pizza, Bahn Mi Boys, Afrofeast, Sliders on Tyres and Mister Muesli.

They are an integral part of an important step towards making the city more welcoming for food truck operators and make street food more accessible to the masses. We're talking breakfast, lunch and dinner at 7 locations from June till August.

Seven vacant street trading sites have been selected based on their potential to be popular with customers and away from competition with restaurants and businesses. The seven locations are:

1. The west side of St Kilda Road, outside National Gallery of Victoria

2. East side of St Kilda Road, adjacent to Walkers Fountain (50m south of the Floral Clock).

3. Boathouse Drive, Melbourne, east of the bollards.

4. North side of Birdwood Avenue, near Shrine of Remembrance.

5. East side of Lansdowne Street, 50m north of Wellington Parade.

6. Linlithgow Ave; adjacent to King George V Memorial.

7. East side of Birdwood Ave; outside Gate D Royal Botanic Garden.

The City of Melbourne will work with operators to gauge the popularity of certain sites to establish their viability in the longer term during the 3-month trial. This effort is another step in cementing Melbourne's place as the culinary capital of Australia. While the city's Look.Stop.Taste festival is long forgotten, remember to see, smell and savour the great street food on offer. With your support, food trucks may finally become a permanent feature in our parks and streets.
