Downey Park Food Trucks | Spring Hill/Downey Park

On Sunday, Downey Park Food Truck hosted an event at Bedford Park, Spring Hill, providing Brisbane’s best food trucks including: ChipTease, Pizzantica, Doughnut Bar, King of the Wings and the Bone Lorry.
The weather had cleared just in time for this event and I was fortunate to try the Beef Cheek Cheeseburger from The Bone Lorry (pictured below). There was an option of adding bacon for an extra $1, but seeing that I just had lunch I wasn’t feeling it. In this burger we had: slow braised beef cheek, bread & butter, pickles pink slaw, melted cheddar and house aioli in a brioche bun. Overall, the burger was average – I found the beef cheeks weren’t as tender as they could be but the slaw was delicious. All the elements of the burger were done so well, however the main component was the let down here, which was a bit disappointing as I was recommended this burger, therefore having high expectations for it.

Au Cirque serves up modern Australian cuisine and is situated in New Farm. Now I don’t normally wake up early enough for breakfast, but this morning I made an exception (10:30am is still considered early for me). By the time we had arrived it was quite busy and we were seated upstairs by the window that looked out on the street.

District 1, located in Fortitude Valley, is a newly opened Vietnamese ‘street food’ style restaurant, inspired by the city of Ho Chi Minh City. Not only do they serve up delicious Bahn Mi, with baguettes baked freshly in-store daily, but enjoyable rice paper rolls! If you’re looking for a homestyle cooking, or just need a late night snack (they are open till late) – this is the place to go.
