The team behind Sydney’s favourite food truck, Eat Art Truck, has announced that they will open their newest project, TruckStop, on September 26.
Located upstairs at Bondi’s favourite hang out Beach Road Hotel, the restaurant will see head chef Stuart McGill (former Tetsuya restaurant sous chef) turn out innovative Japanese-American fare, inspired by his time as a chef in Japan, and his five years at Tetsuya.
McGill’s food will be founded in the traditional technique he learned over many years working in both Japan and Australia’s best kitchens, but with an American spin to modernize and add interest to the menu. Dishes will include spanner crab croquettes, pork ribs with sansho rub and prawns with corn, crispy rice and bacon floss.
The 100-seat venue will be designed exclusively by Alex Zabotto-Bentley and the AZBcreative team – one of Australia’s most respected event production agencies, who specialise in interior design and styling. Following on from the recent interior design success of Masterchef Dining Experience and Jack Daniel’s pop up bar, Jack’s Hive in Darlinghurst, as well as restaurant interiors Lexington at GPO Melbourne and Pink Salt in Double Bay, they will transform both the indoor and outdoor spaces into an urban oasis.
The restaurant will feature Sydney’s first legal ‘graffiti laneway’ with some of the best street artists in Australia invited to create original works.
McGill says of TruckStop, “It’s great to be able to have an outlet to build on what we do with Eat Art Truck- we’re taking the same concept of innovative, fun food combined with street art, and creating a casual dining experience where people can have a great time and enjoy food created with fine produce, using cutting edge technique.”
Eat Art Truck will continue to operate on the streets of Sydney and has cemented its reputation as Sydney’s most popular food truck, with its now famous pulled pork rolls and BBQ themed snacks.
TruckStop will officially open to diners on Wednesday September 26.
