Food trucks pop up in Elsternwick


Come and cosy up, meet and eat… southside !

Quite recently a pop up truck-food precinct arrived “south of the river” (finally – yay !) The Southside Social has parked within a site destined for re-development, just alongside Elsternwick’s Classic Cinema. And for the next couple of months (maybe 6 weeks, maybe longer…) they’ll have a rotation of 3 to 4 food trucks at any time – plus a bar, music, tables, chairs and umbrellas… heaters and blankets (for the start of our winter weather – that’s a great idea !)

Last Friday’s Launch Party hosted food from TOASTA, White Guys Cook Thai, The Brûlée Cart, Danger Dogs and Bean to Melbourne. By Saturday, Korean Fried Chicken Truck and Happy Camper Pizza had arrived…

Why has it taken so long for the south side of Melbourne to host a food truck precinct (?) – it seems the Councils have made it too hard with the permits (uh oh, I’ve heard that before….)

The Southside Social will be open 5 days / nights a week – make sure you get along to support these pop-up food trucks… and let’s encourage more of them !
