When I first encountered a dessert food truck I thought, “What are my deepest desires doing aboard this vehicle?” As a sucker for something sweet after a meal, seeing a dessert based food truck tugged at my heart strings. Whilst food trucks have become a common feature in the Perth market scene, there’s something about a dessert food truck that satisfies my sweet tooth urges when eating out. Grabbing something for lunch or dinner is great. But topping it up with something sweet—that’s decadent.
Here are some of the best dessert food trucks that will exceed all your expectations and have you running back for seconds!
The Sweet Box Cart
One cannot mention dessert based food trucks in Perth without mentioning The Sweet Box Cart. The team at The Sweet Box serve an array of sinful desserts but what their most known for are their giant macaron gelato sliders. Each one is baked in an array of colours and sprinkles, with gelato ice-cream on the inside and macarons on encasing it. It even scored them 43rd as the world’s most Instagrammable dessert! They also bake and create chocolate covered dates and strawberries, mini macarons, fruity popsicles and recently, sweet ice-cream bao sliders! They are currently at Inglewood Night Markets on Monday nights. You can find out their current locations through their Facebook or Instagram.
Just Crème Brulees
The team at Just Crème Brulees take what is usually a fine dining dessert, and turn it into an accessible, sweet, market place snack! Served in foil bowls, Just Crème Brulees scorch their desserts on the truck itself—ensuring the classic burnt, brittle sugar does not go soft. The insides are full of different flavour combinations such as vanilla bean, salted caramel and even a vegan vanilla! If crème brulees aren’t really your thing they also serve Portuguese tarts, both regular and chocolate filled, and cream horns. They are currently frequenting Inglewood Night Markets on Monday nights but you can keep up to date with their recent locations through their Instagram.
Connoisseurs of fried ice-cream, FRY’D have been making rounds on the food truck market circuit for a few years now. They combine delicious balls of fried ice cream with other sweet treats like popcorn, fairy floss, Oreos and matcha. With a crunchy, warm exterior and a smooth, creamy inside, their fried ice-creams are a perfect after dinner treat. They’ve recently opened up two new stores in Leederville and Fremantle but are not stopping food truck operations just yet! They’ll be located at the Girls School for Fringe during the month and then at the Scarborough Markets every Thursday! Keep up to date through their Facebook page.
