FOOD trucks are still the flavour of the month and people after Italian, American and other cuisines will be in luck in Belmont over the next few months.

Roadside Eats At Belmont is an initiative from the City of Belmont co-ordinated by the WA Mobile Food Vendor’s Association.

The trial is taking place at Faulkner Park until January 31 on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 4pm and 8pm and at Tomato Lake on Sundays between 4pm and 8pm until January 28.

Get Chips or Die Frying owner and operator Sam Elliott said there were a number of vendors that would rotate in both areas during the trial.

“There will be a diverse range of food from Italian to American-style food,” he said.

“I think the popularity of food trucks is that they provide a different environment and the Australian is weather is perfect to come outside and eat.”

City of Belmont chief executive John Christie said the council initiated the food truck trial in response to community feedback received through the Place Making Survey.

“The trial supports the City’s commitment to place making initiatives and activities to create a vibrant and engaged community,” he said.
