MaDE in Brimbank is a dance and music bash being held in the car park adjacent to Classic Curry and in which we almost always park when making one of our frequent Sunshine visits.
Now, dance is not really my thing, but I end up being very glad I make the effort.
This is another wonderful westie community event.
I spend quite a few hours enjoying it all – from an hour so after proceedings commence, but departing way before the party winds down.
While on hand I catch all sorts of dancing and other entertainment, ranging from junior hip-hoppers to traditional styles from Africa and Europe.
And there are food trucks.
Actually, there are a LOT of food trucks – they’re so thick on the ground, I wonder how anyone is going to make a buck. Maybe things pick up after I split.
Given the plethora of food rucks on hand, it is no surprise I bump into erudite and much-travelled foodie Nat Stockley.
Nor is it any surprise, given her “thing” for dance, food and, more recently, food trucks themselves, that I likewise stumble across the Urban Ma and other members of the wonderful family with which only days earlier I had been utterly privileged to participate in an amazing Pinoy family feast.
From Amy at Trailer Made Food, I secure a serve of fried potatoes with tomato sauce and Turkish sausage ($10).
It’s a lovely thing!
The spuds are crisp and salty, the sauce is intense and the sausage just right.
But I’m still hungry.
So I hit the Souvlaki Cart – and hit souvlaki heaven.
My $10 souvlaki is wrapped in everyone’s fave Greek-style pita bread.
Internally, the lambs cubes are really, really top class and a cut way above the meat found your average takeaway souvlaki.
The only quibble I would have is that the yogurt/cucumber combo could’ve benefited from quite a bit more garlic.
