I went to Pearl’s Diner this afternoon and had the final burger in their Art Burger series. I’ve been collecting them since the Be Friendly Burger was announced; I had hoped to eat all 6 of them, but it’s hard when you’re not in the city during the week. In general I’m struggling to keep up with the growing number of food trucks around Adelaide, especially because they tend to stick to mid-week lunch times. Even when I do get a day in the city I keep getting tempted back by old favourites, rather than trying the new kids in town.
So I’m looking forward to the upcoming Fork on the Road Food Tuck Festival, which will bring together people like Burger Theory, La Cantina Co, Veggie Velo, Raw Thirst, plus a whole load I’m yet to try.
I first heard about the festival about a month ago, when I was approached about selling cupcakes as part of the festival. Unfortunately I didn’t have the time, and I felt my lack of food-vehicle might make me a little out of place. So instead I’m going along as an eater.
You can read more about Fork on the Road over on Weekend Notes. It’s a new festival, so it’s hard to know what it will be like, but there’s already such a great vibe in the squares when 3 or 4 trucks trade together so I’m excited.
Perhaps next year I’ll get me some wheels, and I can join in the fun too.
