After an initial explosion, food trucks are making a comeback! You’ll find them at community markets, parks and lunch in the city and at major events all over the place. People are even using them to cater their weddings!
We’ve found five of our favourite food trucks serving awesome Asian cuisine for you to adventure out and find. Food always tastes better when there’s a journey involved!
One of the forerunners of the Filipino food wave that’s starting to hit Australia, The Little Jeepney serves up filo favourites like adobo, sisig and egg tarts. You can scope them out on Facebook or email them to find out where they’ll be serving up their fantastic Filo fare next.

Vietnamese is always a crowd pleaser, and Nem N’ Nem definitely please crowds with their take on Vietnamese street food. Brother and sister team Ken and Kathy have brought their Hanoi heritage with them and pump out delicious banh mi, bun thit nuong and fried chicken.

Ok, this one is technically cheating as it’s not strictly an Asian food truck, but their handmade spring rolls are to die for! Their Peking duck roll is my personal favourite, but their entire menu is worth a shot. And they cater! Next time you’ve got a big birthday or work event, why not visit their website and get them to sort the food! Check out their website for more details.
