Foodies pop up in Preston – and St Kilda


Melbourne’s Food Truck Park™ has launched a new season of their curated pop up events in Preston – and Nicolette is tempting us in Acland Street !

A large chunk of open space – a former car yard – on High Street Preston is once again hosting a series of themed pop up food and entertainment events. Each weekend (Friday to Sunday) The Food Truck Park will offer a variety of activities… some weeks will include films, others with live entertainment, artisanal and bric-a-brac markets, pop-up barber shops and more – all curated around a different experience. Central to the pop ups will be food trucks, craft beers and a relaxed (but edgy), family-friendly atmosphere.

The season kicked off last weekend with a Rio Olympic Games Food Truck Party… coming weeks will tempt visitors with Vegie and Vegan themes, Asian street foods, the arrival of Springtime in Melbourne, gourmet Cheese and Wines, BBQs and Burgers, Chilli and Spices (it seems they’re catering to all tastes !) – along with special NYC / Brooklyn, Oktoberfest and Halloween-styled weekends.

These events are open to all ages, with free entry. Visit the The Food Truck Park Preston website for themes, times and more details.

And across the other side of town there’s another pop up dining experience happening this month. One of the MasterChef 2016 contestants – 20 year old Nicolette Strathopoulos – is very excited to present her own four course Pop Up Dessert Degustation at Lona St Kilda (64 Acland Street). There’ll be a choice of 2 menus, with optional drinks – every Sunday in August, from 630pm. More details are online at
