Food trucks have become popular institutions in Sydney of late, and the trend has taken an extra step with the launch of a brand new event at the Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park.

The Food Truck Jam will see Sydney’s most sought-after food trucks gather in one location for the very first time. The event will take place on the October long weekend.

Among the most popular and anticipated of the food trucks will be the Tella Balls milkshake stand. Their creamy milkshake topped with a Nutella-filled donut has become somewhat of a worldwide social media sensation.

The theatre of food preparation will also be on display, with Knafeh Bakery’s ‘Bearded Bakers’ set to put on a performance while serving their delicious Middle Eastern signature dessert – a hot sweet cheese and semolina pudding with crunchy crumble, crushed pistachios and fragrant sugar syrup.

Attendees can take their pick from food trucks including Bad Betty Burgers, NYPD New York Sandwiches, Yang’s Malaysian, Caminito Chorizo and Churros, Let’s Do Yum Cha, Cantina Movil Mexican, Mojo Picon Paella, Cherry Highway and many more.

It isn’t just about indulgent food either. For the health conscious consumer, organic pizza will be available, as well as tapas from Agape, Rio Barra chicken wraps and salads, plus lentil dishes from A Taste of Ethiopia.

Toby’s Estate Coffee will be there, alcoholic beverages will be available from Wats on Tap (including sparkling sangria), and there’ll be a lemonade stand for the kids.

Aside from the food trucks, there will be family friendly entertainment across the weekend including an ice skating rink, jumping castle, DJs, street performers and giveaways.

You can follow each food truck’s journey to the Food Truck Jam on the City of Sydney Council’s Food Truck app, and watch them join together on the map in one location for the first time.

The Food Truck Jam will kick off at the Entertainment Quarter at Moore Park at 5pm on Saturday, October 3, and at 12pm on Sunday, October 4. Entry is free.
