FOOD GLORIOUS FOODS
Established in 2009 as Australia’s first food truck, Beatbox kitchen has lead the revolution of Street food. Beatbox has built its reputation on high quality ingredients and commitment to its customers. Grass-fed beef, whole Portobello shroom burgers, fries and specialty sauces make up their simple but delicious offering. These are seriously fresh burgers.
BELLE’S HOT CHICKEN
Belle's Hot Chicken founder Morgan McGlone has two passions: natural wine and Nashville Hot Chicken. Having spent time as a young chef in France and Nashville, where both are beloved staples, he returned home to Australia in 2014 with a burning desire to bring hot chicken to the masses. McGlone set up shop in Fitzroy, Melbourne where Belle’s Hot Chicken is now a sizzling hot spot. At Laneway 2017 you’ll be treated to good food, wine and hip-hop played on vinyl.
Were you ever that kid at school who was too embarrassed to bring out your lunch? Boon Café were those kids. Now they’re a bit older they appreciate the value of their food heritage, and they’re dedicated to bringing you their version of a sandwich. From the makers of Chat Thai, you will find the comfort of familiar ingredients, combined in completely new ways with artisanal goods from the best local purveyors. If you've never had chilli-relish in a sandwich, neither had they! Boon Café liked it and thought you might too.

With home-made everything, local produce and knowledge, they’re on to a good thing. Plus, Get in the Q’s 1952 GMC blue flame truck - affectionately named Bronson - is Australia's biggest Radar Hill smoker.
HAPPY AS LARRY
Happy as Larry is the brainchild of three Aussie mates with a steadfast vision to take pizza back to the streets where it originated, the streets. Committed to pushing the boundaries of the humble food truck while staying true to the heritage of traditional Napoli style wood-fired pizza, these Sydneysiders know how to make a good slice.
Now rated as one of Melbourne’s most popular eat spots, Juanita Peaches is the first permanent diner of well known Australian food truck pioneer, Raph Rashid.

You can expect to see their signature Fried Chicken Sandwich being served up all day and night long.
When Mary’s opened in Newtown in 2013, lines formed, and have barely moved since. Now one of Sydney’s hottest joints, Mary’s is a no-frills experience - a short menu, loud music and plenty of booze. Bringing their brand of rock-n-roll food to Laneway 2017, punters can expect all the swagger and noise from the Newtown haunt, alongside the burgers and fried chicken that started it all.
The menu at Porteño comes straight from the imagination of culinary artists (and owners) Ben Milgate and Elvis Abrahanowicz. While sporting an impressive meat, seafood and vegetarian menu selection - their carnivore dedicated selection are definite crowd favourites. The mouth watering Asado and Parilla are slow-cooked over 8-hours and freshly prepared on a traditional Argentinian barbeque. No one ever leaves Porteño hungry!
Kerby Craig—winner of six-consecutive Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide hats, found the inspiration for his latest passion-project in the street counter-culture of Tokyo. Armed with a deep respect for all things Japanese and a healthy obsession with perfection, his vision came when he discovered how to capture the essence of Umami —what the Japanese call the fifth taste sensation, in his food. The result is the UME Burger, a taste experience quite unlike any other, and seldom experienced in the western world. Finally someone has given the burger the respect it deserves.
