It’s the city’s largest-ever gathering of food trucks and is a celebration of changing times in Perth’s food scene, with some trucks amassing thousands of loyal followers on social media to see where they’ll be slinging dumplings or froyo next.
The event is the perfect fodder for local bloggers like Sarah Sander, who searches out some of WA’s most photogenic and unique businesses for her blog Perth Pop.
“It’s something new for Perth,” Sander toldAAA . “It’s quick and easy and people are always coming up with all sorts of crazy ideas, so I think that’s exciting.”
One unique food offering will be dished out by David Bignell, the owner of Top Dup Donuts, and Matt Suter, from Pash Frozen Yogurt, who have combined their dessert prowess for the event.
“I saw David’s products on social media and then just sent him an email, harassed him with phone calls until he couldn’t say no, basically,” Suter said.
“We did the Food Truck Rumble last year and that was a crazy day. And this year I think it’s three times the size, basically taking over the full cultural centre. It should be really good.”
And with the two local business owners having a solid fan base between them, they should have plenty of takers for their brownie bikkie sandwich and froyo collaboration.
One of Pash’s most dedicated fans is not a human, however, but a dog — Homer Pugalicious — who has more than 138,000 Instagram followers and will be attending the Food Truck Rumble.
The event is on Sunday from 11am-8pm and will also include an Urban Hawker Centre and Arts and Crafts Laneway Market.
