Adelaide’s monthly Fork on the Road street-food bonanza always draws a colourful crowd, though never more so than on Monday night.
Engulfing Elder Park in a sea of red and white, Adelaide’s most passionate Liverpool FC supporters seized the opportunity to fuel up on the hearty street fare before migrating across to Adelaide Oval for the big match.
With options ranging from authentic paella to indulgent Turkish bakery and traditional wood-oven pizzas, to name but a few, there was no shortage of winter warmers for punters. While the convenience of a licensed bar on the banks of the Torrens was certainly a key draw-card for many in attendance, I myself looked on in envy at the various attractions for the children, chief amongst them a set of inflatable plastic bubbles that kids could play inside of, zorb-style. To the delight of younger children (and at least one adult…) there was also an entertainer providing the more conventional style of detergent bubbles, making it very much an event for the whole family.
If you missed Monday’s ‘Mini-Fork’, and Sunday’s main event, then be sure to like ‘Fork on the Road’ on Facebook to catch the next event and support some of South Australia’s favourite food trucks!
