Chicken Sembe $5
The chicken sembe is to die for, almost literally. Artery-clogging deep-fried chicken skin is drizzled with chilli mayo, the greasily satisfying crunch is just so good yet so bad. The chilli mayo adds a little kick, enhancing the ridiculous moreish-ness of the pieces. If something that tastes so good is this bad for you, then I don't want to live.
Kinpira Salad $8 and Spatchcock Ssam $12
The kinpira salad is a mix of gobo (burdock roots), shredded carrot, edamame and sesame seeds, sauteed with soy sauce and mirin. It's refreshing, crunchy and a little spicy-sweet. The spatchcock ssam is served in a lettuce leaf, filled with shredded confit spatchcock, shallots, vermicelli and fried garlic. Fiery with chilli oil, it was very messy to pick and eat, so definitely tackle it with a fork.
BBQ Beef $12 and Pulled Pork $12
The BBQ beef is a spicy piece of work, slices of meat stuffed into a sweet bun with coleslaw and doused in hot sauce. It was super tasty but my wimpy taste buds struggled to handle the heat. The pulled pork was much more to my liking, with hot smoked pulled pork in the same soft bun with mustard cabbage and wild turkey BBQ sauce. Succulent, sweet and saucy, it's definitely my idea of a perfect late-night feed. The truck also offers a selection of house-made juices, my favourite being the apple and pomegranate, which is pulpy and sweet with whole pomegranate seeds floating around inside.
