Delicious Taiwanese street food on wheels

Lower overheads and start-up costs mean it’s easier for entrepreneurial types to introduce fresh ideas and the best food trucks are those who are afraid to bring new dishes to the streets. Ghost Kitchen is doing just that with their Taiwanese street food menu that’s making it hard not to feel like you’ve been missing out on something delicious your entire life. This is bound to happen when you come across Ghost Kitchen’s Taiwanese pancakes. Their take on the Taiwanese breakfast street food dan bing is best described as a flaky roti topped with an egg and fragrant chopped scallions that’s cooked on top while it’s still hot on the griddle. You can leave it at that, but you’d be a fool to not opt for the ‘the lot’ option, where your eggy pancake is wrapped around a crisp fried Chinese doughnut and a generous sprinkling of savoury sweet pork floss.

Pro tip: get extra serves of the chilli sauce, it’s reminiscent of a fragrant Malaysian sambal and usually comes with the lightly battered salt and pepper popcorn chicken bites, but you’ll want to dab it all over anything for some kick. The braised pork belly gua bao is both rich and light at the same time; the steamed bun a suitably fluffy receptacle that soaks up the pork juices, though it’s balanced out with the sprinkling of fresh coriander and pickles. Thank Jenny Chen for bringing Taiwan’s delicious snacks to our streets.
