Trunk Road

New to Crown Street is a road stop. You know the type. Road stops are terrific quick cheap eateries in many parts of the world, but not always so great in Australia. Until now.

Tucked away in a tiny two storey terrace, Trunk Road opened this week in Crown Street offering roadies and drinks with just a menu board at the door to give away its whereabouts. With just three choices, chicken steak and veg, the roadies are ready to wrap at $9/$10 each. Hanger steak sandwich has gorgeous home made onion rings. Paneer loads the vegetarian. Terrific fries ($6) are even yummier with curry sauce ($7)

Drinks are simple too. In a nod to colonial India, G+T has to be the way to go. Though there are other choices in the licensed up-market-take-away come Sydney small bar.

Adding to the roadside glamour, op shop mismatched finds for plates and glassware add their touch.

Go soon before it gets really busy. Take away and eat in (and with these prices don't linger - eat your roadie and move along).

It's a little bit hip. In the groove is the 1964 Beatles Live In Bangladesh pumping on the playlist. Trunk Road is a sub-continental style street food vendor after all. From the same team as late-night, Bangladeshi hawker-style eatery Bang, it's a tasty cheap eats.
