What lives on oil, has a deep fryer, steering wheels, a honker and a cash register? A transformer! No it's actually the latest creation by ex-Tetsuya sous chef Stuart Mcgill. And that aforementioned oil comes in two types. Petroleum and vegetable. Delightful. The concept is basically a kitchen in a truck that drives all around the Sydney area serving up Korean Japanese food. It just so happens that it dropped by my uni so I couldn't miss out on a quick lunch before an exam.
There sadly wasn't a lot to choose from that day but the steak ssam caught my eye.
It was lacking a bit of acidity but that gochujang sauce was just gorgeous. It had almost a nutty satay quality with a little thumping of chilli. The steak was wonderfully tender perfumed with the usual Thai/ Korean aromats.
The cake was airier than I expected and the chocolateyness? was a bit lacking but it went really really well with the super fudgey caramel and crunchy sugary salted peanuts topped it off. Classic combo you can hardly go wrong with.

Uni exams were taking it's toll but now it's holidays. Look forward to more posts FROM OUR OTHER AUTHORS.
