Ikea: home to flat-packed furniture, Swedish meatballs…and food trucks. Yes, you heard me correctly. Friday 27th March saw some of Brisbane’s favourite food trucks roll into the forecourt outside the retail giant for the launch of Logan City’s Eats and Beats Festival, the south side’s answer to the phenomenally popular Eat St Markets. We arrived a little after 7pm to find an LA-style street party in full swing with large crowds enjoying the atmosphere and grooving along to live music from the likes of PocketLove, Inigo and Neighbour. And of course, enjoying all the tasty morsels on offer from Puerto Taco, Vira Lata, Fiery Deli, Sushi Neko, Little Back and Grandma’s Kiwi Kitchen (selling amazing battered Hoki fish and chups).
We opted to start our night with these amazing chicken nachos from Fiery Deli. Crispy corn tortilla chips with beans and spicy shredded chicken, topped with zesty avacado and lime salsa and a hint of cheese – so fresh and totally devine!
Finally, it was time to join the long queue for the crowd favourite – King of the Wings. We spent nearly an hour in line listening to the music and amusing ourselves but it was well worth the wait. The American BBQ, Southern Style and Bee Sting were succulent, full of flavour and just plain delicious.
