Jock Zonfrillo’s food truck is all about simple dishes, just like his nonna used to make. The Scottish-born chef is one part Italian and his nonna, Generosa Mallozzi, lived in the small fishing village of Scauri.

It’s a drastic change for those familiar with the chef’s restaurants Orana and Blackwood, which specialise in using native Australian ingredients and highlighting Indigenous culture and knowledge.

The food comes from the large blue van parked between a barber shop and the small bar Chihuahua. Expect pork, spinach and black pepper, or eggplant parmigiana in a panini.

There are also two pasta dishes with various sauces (including bolognaise or napoli, naturally) made with fresh, high-quality ingredients; hot chips with parmigiano sauce, and a breakfast menu including deep-fried zeppole, truck-made croissants and panini with mozzarella, pancetta and napoli sauce. The menu reflects the basic dishes Zonfrillo likes to eat when he’s on the run.
