So like, all those food trucks that rolled out earlier this year? I still have not visited a single one! I usually head home straight from work and hardly ever trek out to the city on the weekends but guess what westie peeps? Street Sliders is here to spread the food truck love in Parramatta! Street Sliders is run by brother and sister team Patrice and Nathalie and their launch was over the weekend with their truck parked in Church St Mall drawing curious passer-bys.
The menu is short and sweet for now with 4 sliders available and some sides, shakes and corn. $1 from every slider sold at the launch was donated to their chosen charity Barnardos Gift for Kids which was pretty awesome and they’re hoping to do more with them in the future.
There was a bit of a wait in the queue so the boy and I decided to order one of all the sliders just because 😛 We opted for the Trio Combo ($17) which comes with 3 sliders, a side (we chose the Salad Crunch) and a soft drink. Aaaand the 4th slider by itself ($5.50 each), a strawberry and buttermilk shake ($3) and elote/corn ($3.50).
YARMMMM! Piping hot and slathered in a secret sauce and spice the corn is sprinkled with a shaving of parmesan and kosher salt and is the perfect street food snack.
Helloooo sliders! First up is the Sancho Slider, a juicy patty on a bed of avocado and topped with a jumble of corn, tomato, red onion and coriander. I side step what I think is a pickle and palm it off to Noods who soon realises it was a slice of jalapeno! The Prime slider is my fav, mainly because of the awesome maple-caramelized bacon and melty cheddar cheese. The Brick slider has a fat piece of chicken and it’s the garlic aioli that totally makes it but it’s a close call with the smokey eggplant in the Smoke Slider for my second favourite.
The side of Salad Crunch got upsized to a normal portion rather than a side because of the wait and it was pretty tasty considering you know, it’s a salad 😛
The Street Sliders Truck will be back this Saturday at Church St mall at 5.30pm so get there early if you’re in the area and follow them on Facebook to see where they’re at next!
