This beautiful elephant is hiding something rather special: delectable curries, samosas, raita, naan bread and more. He guards the back of The Curry Truck, one of the tastiest meals on wheels you'll find cruising Melbourne's streets these days. For lunch I ordered the special, because I can never go past a surprise. The first surprise was that my meal had to be cooked from scratch, which meant a longer-than-expected wait while my tummy rumbled. But when the meal did arrive, half the people in the (ever-growing) line behind me began twitching their noses. And more than one person asked "Can I look inside? That smells amazing!" Which it did.
It was chicken drenched in tandoori-style spices, with a refreshing raita and freshly-cooked flat-bread to mop all the flavours up. It's true my lunch didn't look all that pretty, but my little disposable plate was clean when I'd finished!
What did you have for lunch this weekend?
ps. More edible goodness on the Melbourne streets
