Meals on Wheels: Cool Asian Food Trucks Around Australia

Mama Linh’s Vietnamese Street Food, Sydney

Keep an eye out for Mama Linh’s bright red truck on the streets of the Sydney CBD, dishing up crunchy banh mi filled with spiced chicken, pulled pork or pho-flavoured beef, plus lashings of fresh herbs and zesty slaw.

Bibimbap Korean Food Truck, Melbourne

This sunflower-yellow retro caravan has found a permanent nook for now, in Punch Lane, Melbourne. Pay a visit to Bibimbap for bowls of the namesake Korean dish: rice topped with your choice of bulgogi beef, teriyaki chicken or seasoned tofu, with chilli garlic or lemon soy sauce.
