Looking for the food truck experience? A tasty feast of fish and chips whilst chilling out at the iconic Surfers Point, Margaret River? Look no further. Hooked Up Fish & Chips is the food truck to fit the bill. A favorite amongst locals and tourists alike and often a sell-out, arrive early to ensure you don’t miss out.

There are kids options, vegetarian options, and allergen-friendly options so it is the perfect choice for an early evening dinner with the family. Hooked Up Fish & Chips has a permanent spot at Surfers Point from Wednesdays to Mondays. Occasionally their opening hours are affected by weather so be sure to give them a follow on Instagram or Facebook to stay up to date.

2. Soul Cocina

If the name doesn’t already have you dancing, the food will. Soul Cocina is a vibrant, full-of-life, love-filled, Latin-inspired food truck. It is a passion project by husband and wife team Natalie and Adrian and just oozes flavor, fun, and feel-good foodie experiences.

Specializing in events catering they offer tailored menus handmade with fresh and tasty local and lovingly sourced ingredients. Inspired by their travels through Mexico and Spain the food has a real “fiesta” feel to it.

They have a fantastic sample menu for you to peruse on their website featuring the likes of El Toro Sliders, Lamb Barbacoa, Potatoes Bravas, and of course the crowd favorite, Chimichangas!

You’ll also find Soul Cocina popping up at markets, community events and with some staple spots at local holiday parks so be sure to check their socials when you’re down to catch them close by.

3. Spice Odysee Curry Van

One of the main stayers on the food truck scene in the South West, Spice Odysee is a favorite amongst locals from Margaret River, Busselton, and Dunsborough. Family-run by husband and wife team Sathish and Keerthana, Spice Odysee is the perfect blend of authentic Indian favorites cooked with only fresh, local ingredients from the Margaret River Region.

Spice Odysee also has a bricks-and-mortar restaurant in Busselton called The Hidden Kitchen so if you want to enjoy their beautiful authentic Indian meals outside of their food truck schedule be sure to check them out.

4. Ma La Dumplings

Who doesn’t love dumplings?! Find me one person.. I’ll wait. Ma La Dumplings has been on the Margaret River food truck scene for just over 5 years now. The concept was born when husband and wife team Teesh and Matt returned from a decade working in Beijing and noticed a niche to be filled with fresh, quality Chinese dumplings.

Their name goes hand in hand with their flavorful sauces. Ma La Dumplings originates from a flavor profile of spicy Sichuan peppercorns and chili. The menu packs a punch, full of zest and made with fresh local ingredients.

You’ll usually find Ma La Dumplings at the Margaret River Farmers Market every Saturday morning. You don’t know breakfast until you’ve enjoyed breakfast dumplings coated in zingy Bang Bang Sauce.

Even better, you can buy frozen dumplings and enjoy them at home.. you can find them here.

5. Bobcha Korean Food Truck

Bobcha translates to a food truck in Korean and it is the Korean food truck Mecca of your dreams. From humble beginnings making the best Kimchi in town and selling it at the markets, Bobcha Korean Food Truck grew into the epic foodie experience it is today.

Offering a fusion of authentic Korean flavors and dishes with western favorites, Bobcha is fun soul food that’ll have you chasing them down for more. Some of our favorites are the Slow-Cooked Pork Belly Burger ‘Sam G-Yup Sal’ the Korean Fried Chicken and Rice, ‘Yang Nylon Chicken’, and the fusion of Korean and Taiwanese Braised Pork ‘Lu Rou Fan.’

Bobcha is available to book for events but has a permanent place at Origins market in Busselton Thursday – Sunday 11-6 pm and Cowaramup District Club every second Wednesday 5-8 pm.

6. Peace Pizza

No food truck guide is complete without some wood-fired pizza right?! So here is the best of the best… Peace Pizza based out of Dunsborough is the pro in producing the most flavorful wood-fired pizzas in the Margaret River Region.

With names like The Boss, James Dean, and Bob Marley, they inject the fun into a takeaway night. The team is super friendly, professional, and fast!

Geared more towards events catering, their super stylish trailer is a welcome addition to any gathering. You might be able to track them down at festivals or community events if you follow them closely on socials but luckily they also have a bricks-and-mortar pizza shop in Dunsborough.

Australia Travel Planning Guide

🚑Should I buy Australian travel insurance?

100% YES! — Australia has “free” healthcare but it’s only for citizens and permanent residents. Foreigners visiting need travel insurance in case anything happens on their visit. I like SafetyWing – their Nomad Insurance starts at just $1.50 USD a day!

🚗Should I rent a car in Australia?

Yes — Renting a car is a necessity in most of Australia! If you want to go on road trips or adventures outside of the major cities, and even if you’re staying in a major city, you’ll want to rent a car. If you are visiting Margaret River, it will be even more important that you hire a car, you’ll need it to be able to get around and see all the great attractions and wineries!

🏨What’s the best way to book my Australian accommodation?

My go-to for Australian hotels is Booking.com. Pretty much all registered accommodation use Booking.com (but not necessarily any of the other major booking platforms), and even most of the holiday homes and caravan parks use Booking.com too!

If you’re planning a trip to Australia where you will stay at multiple locations, it’s super handy to have all your accommodation listed in one place, and accommodation owners like Booking.com because it’s easy to contact the guests using the messaging platform if the guest has an international phone number.

I sincerely hope you enjoy your visit to Margaret River!
