Would you like to know what we love about music festivals, weekend markets and the like? The food trucks. And in recent months the food truck scene has exploded. Due to this, that the lads and ladies behind the Good & Proper Food Truck Eatery decided to round up the best Jozi mobile eateries and set them up in a parking lot at Benmore Gardens Shopping Centre.

Fan favourites Balkan Burgers, StrEAT Cuisine and the Brohemian are all there in full force; with Jozi Car Bar supplying the drinks. The vibe is good and the food is fantastic. Visitors are spoiled for choice as there's everything from loxion style street food to gourmet burgers and pizzas. Seeing as the weather is picking up, a lot of the coffee guys have switched over to iced coffee which is a huge blessing as the heat rolls in. Another fan favourite would be Zombie Chefs with their amazing sandwiches and tasty creations... you need to check them out and see what everyone's raving about.

The venue itself is quite interesting as it's set in the parking lot of Benmore Shopping Centre. There is also an ample amount of shade and seating available, so you don't have to stand around with a pizza box in one hand and a cocktail in the other whilst trying to shovel slices into your mouth in a very awkward way.

The Good & Proper Food Truck Eatery launched on 01 September 2016 and will run until 25 November 2016 with further events to mentioned along the line. Check out their Facebook page for more information.

Have you visited the food truck park? What did you think of it? Let us know in the comments section below? And, as always, sharing is caring so post this on social media.

Balkan Burgers

There is nothing quite like sinking your teeth into a big, fat juicy burger. We’d go as far as to say that there is nothing closer to nirvana than a good burger… But we can take it one step further and say that there is absolutely nothing compared to that first bite of a sexy burger from Balkan Burgers. Are you sold? Well, you should be! The Balkan Burgers food truck has fed plenty a hipster and plenty a festival goer. Balkan Burgers is so cool that they’ve been recommended by travel and food legend, Anthony Bourdain. If that doesn't tell you how incredible they are, we don't know what will.

Cajun Joe’s Food Co.

The best thing about walking the streets of Bryanston is when you bump into the Cajun Joe’s truck in front of you. All we can say is that the baby corn salad is off the hook, so are the paninis and wraps — okay, and pretty much everything else being prepared in their kitchen. From music festivals to expos to random party nights in town, Cajun Joe’s Food Co. is your friendly neighbourhood chow hook-up.

Vetkoek Cafe

Seriously, who’s going to say no to devouring a gourmet vetkoek? Vetkoek Café serves artisanal, lekker and local vetkoek – think curry mince, chicken mayo, biltong smothered in crème fraîche, or roasted veg with basil pesto and feta. Just do yourself a favour and check them out…

Bearded Fella

Pizza on wheels. Yeah, we’ll give you a moment to take that in… Done? Good. The Bearded Fella has been spotted selling wood-burning oven pizza at festivals such as Oppikoppi and the likes. It’s quick, it’s filling and the only problem is to figure out if we want pineapple or avo on our custom order. Either way, make sure to check these buddies out. A good pizza is determined by the base and the Bearded Fella must have some Italian blood in him because these pizza bases are booming.

Martha’s Mojo

Double trouble with this one, as Martha’s Mojo runs the Amexicano and 5 Star Street Chef. Both food trucks are well known across Jozi and plenty of people have stampeded their way to get their hands on the good and spicy served from these griddles. Flame grilled to perfection, Amexicano serves nachos and tacos so decadent that you need to take a holiday to get the goodness off your mind, while 5 Star Street Chef serves up Vietnamese Banh mi pork burgers and pickled veg.

Tutto Food Co

Tutto believes that good food makes life whole and that every meal is an opportunity to savour the moment. Our advice is to "savour the moment" with a plate of their celebrated paella. Choose from seafood, mushroom and chicken and chorizo.

The Brohemian

Fresh homemade dough. Check. Organic tomato base. Check. Free-range toppings. Check. Absolutely delicious. Check. These are enough reasons for us to devour The Brohemian’s wood-fired pizza. In fact, we’ll order a second to go...

If there is one thing that makes me weak at the knees, it's delicious food — in this case, delicious street food. That is exactly what Sumting Fresh has to offer: a chicken full of heaven.

Who's your daddy? Chicken daddy!

That is pretty much a rhetorical question for "Sumting Fresh is the king of serving the best fried chicken around". Yep! They also come with a fresh lingo that will have you laughing, feeling good or just blushing to death (Okay, now I'm revealing my secrets. They had me at "Cause I met her in the summaaa, SUMMA!"  which means "a pretty lady customer ordering" ).

Sumting Fresh began their journey in 2012, spreading the love around Joburg in their street food truck. If you are a market traveller, you surely know them. Even if you don't, visit any market where they serve their amazing food and you will know them. They are probably the loudest and most welcoming people to feed you. It's great! Nothing is better than being fed and receiving golden service. Trust me — I know.

They say that their chants play a very huge part of their food. This is what grabs the customers' attention and keeps them entertained while they wait for their order. Not only is it motivation for the customer, but also for the Sumting Fresh family during the long hours that they have to work.

Can I get a ... Bump Da Cheese Up!

This, by all means, is very literal. Nothing to do with money, fam. Ever imagine something you are craving, and have that instant mouthwater? Well! I am certain you will have more of those moments before, during and after having their tasty food.

My personal favourite has to be the "Italian Stallion". This includes a generous portion of their signature chicken on a bed of salad dressed with their addictive home-made aïoli and sweet chilli sauce and hugged by a fresh bun. May I add that this is served with shoestring fries and a slice of watermelon to cleanse the palate. Other comforting dishes include their famous Goujon Chicken and, for an awesome Asian touch, their steamed bread caressed with chicken, a bed of salad and sauce.

As a foodie myself, one thing that always gives me joy is the homemade touch of love. They make their own sauces and I have to say, they taste amazing! The chilli sauce is like a better version of sriracha sauce.

Chicken Over Here!! Chicken Over Here, Yeh!

Where to find this mysteriously delicious, succulent chicken addiction? Sumting Fresh is situated in Norwood on 79 Grant Avenue. Otherwise, you can find them at the Neighbourgoods Market on Saturdays and The Fourways Farmers' Market on Sundays. Otherwise, follow their pages to see which events they are attending. They made my DSTV Delicious Festival a very yummy one.
