I was invited to try out Aussie Tukka’s lunch menu by CK, the founder of Truck Stop Today – the UK’s first online library of food trucks. It’s definitely worth checking out their website if you are a street food lover! There are loads of trucks serving a huge range of cuisines dotted around the country, a lot of them outside office blocks. The schedule changes regularly and is updated on their website. I had lunch with CK at Aussie Tukka’s truck not too far from my own office, and heard all about his journey building Truck Stop Today, born out of his love of (street) food having worked at toptable.com for 9 years and from loving Americana and loving his regular New York visits in the states – pretty much the home of Food Trucks!
Aussie Tukka serve a range of barbecued meat, fish and veggie options, in true Aussie style. On the day I visited, halloumi was on the menu and was served with a rainbow slaw and salad leaves which can either be rolled up in a big wrap or served as a salad in a box. The highlight for me was a drizzle of their handmade red pepper sauce, which is made with fresh roasted red pepper, garlic and creme fraiche – you can really taste the freshness! They also added a dollop of home made chilli sauce from the Peckham Sauce Co., which again, tasted super fresh. It was perfect for a light and healthy summers lunch. Their menu ranges in price between around £6 – 8 per dish, in line with London prices, but the wraps are quite substantial and should keep you going throughout the afternoon. Overall, I’d definitely recommend giving it a go if you’re a BBQ lover like me!
