Food on the move

No matter where you are, there’s bound to be a Tassie food truck nearby to satisfy your tastebuds.

Cubed Espresso

Where can we find you?

Pirates Bay Lookout, Eaglehawk Neck.

Specialty and/or crowd favourite?

We specialise in espresso using small-batch locally roasted and ethically sourced beans. Our choc-chunk vanilla butter cookies with a sprinkling of Tasman sea salt have a cult following.

Your ethos?

We believe in creating a space for people to come together over an excellent brew, take a breath and enjoy handcrafted treats with one of Tasmania’s most breathtaking views. Our philosophy is also about reducing our footprint by running on solar power, using rain harvested water, recycled materials and sustainably sourced products.

Favourite thing about running a food van?

Cubed draws a diverse crowd of people and we catch them in a very happy place. Each comes with a story and passion for good things. We love finding out which walks or beaches they’re headed to or how their day’s been. Making sure everyone has the nourishment they seek is a job we adore.

Delicious Little Things

Where can we find you?

Harvest Market, Launceston.

Specialty and/or crowd favourite?

Our homemade beef sausage rolls with mum’s relish leave quickly. Our lemon meringue tart is the sweet winner.

Your ethos?

Evoking happy memories. We believe in a good quality treat to make people happy. We use the best quality, natural ingredients that remind you of the sponge nanna made when you were a child.

Favourite thing about running a food van?

Community contact. Hearing the children run towards the van before you see them and watching them grow over the years. Building relationships with stallholders and people at the market is a highlight.

Chan Bao

Where can we find you?

Bellerive and the Hobart Twilight Market.

Specialty and/or crowd favourite?

Taiwanese gua bao is our main product. Our pork belly and fried chicken bao buns are popular favourites.

Your ethos?

We started our business because my partner missed her home food and there aren’t many Taiwanese options in Hobart. Gua bao is traditional Taiwanese food, which she has been eating since she was a child.

Favourite thing about running a food van?

We’ve had lots of interesting and fun experiences, especially as we didn’t train as chefs. We love seeing people enjoy the food. Sometimes it can be stressful, but it’s just part of the fun.

Wolfpit BBQ

Where can we find you?

Kingston, New Norfolk Market and Moonah.

Specialty and/or crowd favourite?

We specialise in Tasmanian slow-cooked meats. Pork, beef brisket and lamb are our menu staples – our vegan options and smoked meats are popular too. Our pulled jackfruit and vegan chilli con carne get rave reviews, and our slow-smoked maple bacon is a must for any meat lover.

Your ethos?

We’re proud of our state and where possible we showcase local produce, from our meats to our Tasmanian smoked salt. We love what we do and feeding bellies with delicious food is something we’re passionate about.

Favourite thing about running a food van?

Our customers are like our family. New customers turn into regular customers and that’s just the way we like it.

Sailor Food Truck

Where can we find you?

Westbury, Longford, Launceston and Deloraine.

Specialty and/or crowd favourite?

We specialise in fresh seafood. The crowd favourite is a toss-up between our tempura battered Tasmanian gummy shark or our ginseng battered Tassie scallops. In summer, our salt ‘n’ pepper calamari is a top seller as well.

Your ethos?

Our beautiful ‘school bus turned food truck’ oozes character and nautical, laid-back vibes. After finding her on King Island, we saw the potential and took a leap of faith. We’re big on supporting local, so we endeavour to use fresh Tassie produce when possible. We believe quality, consistency and pride are what set us apart, along with good old-fashioned customer service.

Favourite thing about running a food van?

Often referred to as the ‘big blue bus’, we’re so proud of the support that Sailor has received in just three years. It’s rewarding to hear from customers who love our food and the theme we’ve created for our little business.

News from Sailor Food Truck: After finding another old style Mercedes bus, we leapt at the opportunity to create another food truck with a new theme. Hula Food Truck will be bringing vibrant, beach luvin’ fun filled, tropical vibes. Hula will be offering flavours from the tropics with our feature dish being Huli Huli Chicken from Hawaii.  We hope look forward to trading side by side very soon.

It would have to be our calamari strips.

Your ethos?

We believe in great food served with great customer service, while caring for our planet using only compostable packaging.

Favourite thing about running a food van?

The interaction with the community. We love hearing and telling stories, and are genuinely interested in who our customers are.
