Wow! What a beautiful day for Tasting Australia‘s Fork on the Road at Town Square, Victoria Square, Adelaide.
This was my first visit to the new revitalised Victoria Square and I must say it looked fantastic. What a great space, and having the road closed through the square made for an even bigger event area.
We arrived just after 11am and the crowds were starting to build. Our first stop was Delectaballs where we tried The Moroccan. (We tend to buy one dish and share between the three of us, so we can try more things!) What I loved about this food truck was the sign that explained all of the local ingredients they were using.
The meatballs were delicious and so moist and juicy!
We also returned to Taste of Spain for the chicken and chorizo paella. We had this during the Adelaide Food and Wine Festival’s Fork on the Road at Light Square earlier in the year, and once again it didn’t disappoint. (We didn’t have the Sangria this time though).
We also enjoyed the BBQ pork ribs from The Barbecue Caterer. Well, our son did, downing five of them himself!
The Chivita (burger) de South American Chorizo from La Chiva was the last thing we bought and it was worth the wait. What a succulent burger!
And service with a big smile!
And of course a beverage to wash it all down – a dark pale, a pale ale and cider from the McLaren Vale Beer Company. Wow, I loved the cider. So light and no bitter aftertaste.
Food trucks have certainly become popular in Adelaide in a relatively short period of time, and these events show off South Australia’s burgeoning food scene. Get along to the next one if you can and try something a little different in Adelaide!
