With a restaurant in Kyneton and three food trucks on the go, the Singhs from Dhaba at the Mill are making the drive to the city.
Jessi and Jennifer Singh have heard our call for more food trucks in the city. The couple own Dhaba at the Mill Indian restaurant in Kyneton and have a fleet of Dhaba Food Trucks that appear regularly around Woodend. Dhaba now makes semi-regular jaunts to the big smoke following requests by Melbourne folk to drive down more often.
The Dhaba Food Truck sets up shop next to Gumbo Kitchen on Ruckers Hill in Northcote every week and they may eventually set up more often in the city.
The truck’s focus is on Indian street food, something we don’t often get to sample. The menu includes Papadi Chaat (crispy wafers to scoop spiced chickpea, potato, tomato and coriander topped with yogurt and tamarind sauce), Aloo Tikki (a potato croquette with a spiced cheesy centre) alongside homemade samosa and chutney. “The truck will always serve curry over rice bowls as well,” says Jennifer. “The rotating menu means there will always be a vegetarian and non-veg curry option.”
