I am loving this food truck frenzy that is hitting the streets of Perth, hopefully as fervent as that Mexican epidemic. Comida Do Sul is absolutely infectious, every detail and inch breathes a cool, laid back personality reminiscent of a true street vendor.
We found this little piece of Brazilian heaven at the Twilight Hawker's Markets on a Friday evening. Wedged between trucks of sweet goodness, Comida Do Sul, was dishing up flavours of Brazil.
Praito feito is an essential part of Brazilian cuisine, its literal translation being "composed plate". A plate composed of rice, beans, meat, french fries and salad, in the motherland you can also find an egg or two slipped in.
Another regular on the menu is the Choripán, served throughout South America, hot dog style, in a mix of ways with varying meats and toppings. In Brazil you would eat this as a casual meal, a pork sausage wrapped up in French bread and washed down with a icy, cold beer. Here at Comida Do Sul you will enjoy your choripán Argentinian style with homemade mayo, tomato salsa and a good lashing of chimichurri.
The Coxinha is South America's answer to Italy's arancini or Spain's croquetas. A ball of some of my favourite things; dough, potato and tasty shredded chicken filling formed into a chicken thigh shape and deep fried. I can imagine having a coxinha fix off many a street cart whilst on holidays.
For your dose of Brazilian make sure you hunt down Comida Do Sul on their Facebook page, you might even find them popping up on a street near you.
