It’s been a while since my last food truck hunt. It was announced sometime in December that Street Sliders were going to hit the Parramatta streets so it’s great to see that a suburb out west is adopting the food culture that the Sydney CBD has been so fond of lately. Why should the westies miss out? For January 2013 only, The Food Truck Revolution featuring the below food trucks will park themselves at Church Street Mall, Parramatta and serve up their street food. Schedules are posted up by the participating food trucks so make sure you follow them on facebook for any updates.

Street Sliders is the first (of the bunch, I hope) food truck that I get my hands on as part of the Food Truck Revolution
There’s a window for ordering and picking up your food giving the chefs time to make the food to order as it makes its way from one window to another.
The full menu
Food Trucks have limited quantities of food as they are essentially running in a portable kitchen. What Street Sliders have done is show what’s remaining of each item on a monitor right next to the ordering window. Genius idea, I’d say. To our great sadness, half the things were sold out by the time we got there.
Duo Combo + a Side + Drink $12
Since there were only 2 types of sliders available, it made sense to get the duo combo. I really wanted the salad crunch but the lady before me got the last one (I was devastated) so we had to go with the french fries as a side, which were generously seasoned, however a little soggy. If you’re a fan of soggy chips, they’re a real winner though ;) We got a Sancho Slider (pictured in front) with a juicy beef pattie, avocado, corn salsa, sour cream and pickled jalapenos served on a mini brioche bun – score!
The Smoke Slider was filled with moreish eggplant, mozzarella, red onion, lettuce with a luscious balsamic glaze.
Corn Elota $3.50
A cob of corn is cooked on the grill, slathered with their secret sauce, spices with lots of cheeeeeeeeeeeese on top. A bit messy to eat but a great snack at that.
The pulled back corn husks made a great handle
(and it looks like I have a chicken wing………)
The Boy and I are just impressed with the food trucks that have been roaming our streets already. We’ve had 3 unexpectedly tasty meals from these trucks and we are only looking forward to devouring more.
