Is there any word combination better than FOOD and FESTIVAL (well apart from maybe world peace or Trump’s dead)? But more to the topic there is a brand new food festival hitting up Western Sydney and it promises two days of eats, drinks, chills and music. The festival will see over 30 of Sydney’s most popular food trucks converging to feed the masses including Mister Gee, Happy as Larry, Agape, Cantina Movil, Mama Linh’s and everyone’s favourite table dancing chefs from Knafeh.
