Price: Cheap/Cheap but not too cheap
Score: between 4 and 7/10 depending...
It's October so the geniusly marketed but boring and overpriced Sydney International Food Festival is on, probably hasn't been good for about 5 years now. Anyway, part of it is the Night Noodle Markets where numerous restaurants operate out of little tents.
A great way to catch up with friends at Hyde Park, standing in ludicrous lines, fighting for tables and chairs and being at the mercy of the elements all so one can order food that is served in the proper restaurant anyway...
We thought we'd give a taste of what happens in San Fran EVERY NIGHT OF THE WEEK.
Gatherings of food trucks. Each night there are a couple of locations... None of this "oh I must wait until October" or "oh wow food truck, better line up before they shut down and disappear for 6 months" rubbish.
The Chairman - Pork belly not so good - 5/10, the coca-cola braised pork was good - 7/10
Senor Sisig- Nice fat burrito - 7/10
Taco Guys - Fish taco waste of $5 - 4/10
Koja Kitchen - Thought it was smart to use rice buns but apparently you can get the same thing in Lotteria in Korea (have since discovered MOS Burger does a similar thing). The rice doesn't quite work as a bun...it lacks coherence and ends up being "crumbly" (because it's bits of rice). The meat didn't taste like Korean bbq and so was demeaning to Korean cooking - 4/10. Their green tea and blueberry cheesecake was good 7/10
Creme Brulee Cart - good
