I like events in Sydney that are a bit quirky and provide a difference experience to the ‘norm’. Suffice to say I’m intrigued by the Eat Art Truck, fusing progressive street food with some of the country’s coolest street art, which has opened its windows to the public with renowned street artist Phibs as the launch artist. I’ll be heading to sample the delights tonight, I’ll keep you posted on my Twitter feed @sydneysocial101

Former Tetsuya Sous Chef, Stuart McGill, is behind the burners with former Quay chef, Brenton Balicki, by his side in one of the 10 food trucks selected and issued with a license by the City of Sydney.  The well-credentialed truck will be feeding hungry Sydney-siders dishes ranging from $6 to $12 using seasonal produce including pulled pork buns, twice cooked beef served ‘ssam style’, karaage prawns, sides of seasonal pickled vegetables and desserts like Japanese favourite ‘annindofu’.

Street artist Phibs, whose works are seen all over Melbourne and Sydney and have been acquired by the National Gallery of Australia, will craft one of his signature artworks on the truck’s huge removable canvas on May 23. Diners will be able to watch live as the artwork takes shape and then tours the streets of Sydney.

A mix of up and coming and well-respected street artists have been invited to paint the truck’s canvas over coming months, with a new artwork featuring on the truck at least once a month.

Stuart’s menu, influenced by his time in some of Australia’s best kitchens as well as time spent living in Japan, will push the boundaries of street food with regularly changing dishes depending on season, the best ingredients available and influences from the artists who paint the truck.  His dishes will challenge the limits and demonstrate that food truck fare can be innovative and impressive.

The custom made truck is equipped with a state of the art Electrolux kitchen, (provided by Electrolux as a sponsor of Eat Art Truck) and especially designed for the limited space, including cutting edge induction cooktops and combination steam ovens, giving Stuart all the appliances of a full-sized, well equipped kitchen for cooking his exciting new dishes.  The truck is powered by the most advanced point of sale system engineered and supplied by ImPOS, utilizing the latest software platforms and intuitive menu design to ensure Eat Art Truck fans spend less time in the queue.

Eat Art Truck will be feeding hungry Sydney-siders at confirmed sites including:

Queens Square in Sydney CBD

Hyde Park in Sydney CBD

Belmore Park in Haymarket

Victoria Park in Camperdown

Federal Park in Glebe

Sydney Park in Alexandria
Macquarie Place in Sydney CBD
Customs House Forecourt in Sydney CBD
Pitt Street Mall in Sydney CBD

Menu A will operate on Wednesdays & Thursdays, Menu B on Fridays & Saturdays. Sundays will be either menu A or B, or a mixture of both. Also – each Sunday there will be 1 experimental dish produced by Stuart & Brenton.
