Did someone say FREE FOOD? Yes, you’re not hearing things. To celebrate 2018 as the Year of Gastronomy, the Macao Government Tourism Office is giving Aussies a FREE taste of the wonderful gourmet delights of Macao.

After a week on the road treating Sydneysiders to free samples of Macanese delicacies, the Taste of Sydney food truck has travelled 1000 kilometres south to offer the dishes to Melburnians.

The food truck is taking to the streets of the Victorian capital from today until Tuesday, September 18.

The pop-up restaurant will be parked at a number of major locations, the chef and kitchen team serving African Chicken, Pork Chop Buns and the traditional Serradura pudding.

Macao Government Tourism Office said the truck had been a huge success in Sydney over the past week.

Now, it’s time to cater to hungry guests in Melbournes Federation Square, St Kilda and South Bank.

Macanese cuisine is considered one of the world’s earliest forms of fusion food – Portuguese inspired with spices collected along the maritime route between Portugal and China.

A former Portuguese enclave of 650,000 residents, Macao was recently designated by UNESCO as a Creative City for Gastronomy and is celebrating everything food throughout 2018.
