Margaret River Food Truck

Sometimes there’s just no time to cook dinner, linger over a long lunch, or hunker down in a coffee shop with a cuppa and a good book.

When a bite on the go is what you’re after, the rise in fresh, fantastic offerings from food trucks means there’s no reason that speedy has to equal poor quality or unhealthy food.

Remember to check online for current updates on truck locations: the very nature of meals on wheels mean they might be visiting another spot!

Combi Coffee Van

Margaret River Farmers Market Eats

Hit up the Farmers Markets on Bussell Highway every Saturday morning with more than 50 regular stalls and food trucks. Try a coffee or two from Combi Coffee (also found at River Mouth car park on other days of the week) or from the Yahava truck and be sure to bring a reusable cup for an environmentally friendly latte.

Accompany your coffee with a serve of MaLa Dumplings – whether it’s breakfast or lunch, they will hit the spot. These morsels are crafted by dumpling addicts Matt and Teesh, who lived in Beijing and honed their skills to a fine art before developing their flavour bombs and homemade sauces from local produce in Margaret River. After one taste you will definitely be on the hunt for their blue and white van again; their avid following of dumpling lovers in the region echo Matt’s words: “There are two types of people in the world; those who are addicted to dumplings, and those who haven’t tried them yet.” You can also find the van at the regular night markets about town, check their Facebook page for updates.

Coastal Haunts

Be sure to pack a rug and enjoy one of the best views in the South West for another dining option at Surfers Point. Hit up Hooked Up Fish and Chips for some seafood with your sunset – be warned though, the fish tacos are addictive and may have you back for seconds.

Those that are closer to the other end of the cape can still be treated to seaside dining. Throughout the warmer months Old Dunsborough boat ramp plays host to the Silver Bullet Espresso on regular mornings from 7am in a cool vintage airstream, then on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evenings curry lovers can get a fix with The Spice Odysee Indian Food truck. Catch them at other times in Margaret River Rotary Park for a fresh flavoursome spice fix.

Busselton Bites

Busselton locals have been in the know for some time now with Eat Street running at The Shed Markets from Thursday through to Sunday each week. Swap your daily coffee for a revitalising fresh juice by Raw Life Juice Bar or go in search of lunchtime offerings from the food trucks. There’s a distinct community vibe, and vegans/vegetarians are particularly well catered for.

Origins Market is an undercover space that has been designed so that food trucks can drive in and serve up their tasty bites, no matter what the weather is like. There is a regularly rotating cast, but permanent fixtures include Korean food truck Bobcha slinging some crazy good chicken, cheesy saucy goodness from Cesco’s Pizzeria, and fresh out-of-the-ocean oysters from Get Shucked.
