Today marked the first day a Street Food Australiabike hit the streets of Brisbane and I jumped at the opportunity to support the organisation by scoffing down a plate of fresh, delicious dumplings.
Broadcasting on Twitter that they would be serving steamed dumplings from their bike on William Street opposite the Casino, I trudged over the bridge into the CBD to grab some before they all disappeared. Two guys – Billerwell and Lucus – were manning the bicycle under the shade of a tent. I treated myself to 8 dumplings for $10 (or you could get 4 for $6); four pork, chives and ginger and four chicken, pongu mushroom and 5 spice. Splashed with some soy and a little black pepper chilli sauce, they were fresh hot and tasty. A perfect lunch.

SFA will be in the same spot, on William Street opposite the casino by the Victoria Bridge, at lunchtime on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday this week and presumably for weeks to come. In time, they will be joined by more bikes selling international cuisine that is cheap and tasty and even better, supporting an excellent cause. If you work in the CBD I strongly advise you head along and give them a try.
I could eat this every day.
