Seven things to try at the Ipswich Show
It’s show time this Friday to Sunday and if you’re among the thousands heading to the Ipswich Show this year, you’re going to need to know what to eat while you’re there! Here’s a little taste of what to expect.
Meatballs… with your fries
Um… is this even allowed!? We’ve heard of loaded fries but this version takes the concept to new heights. These oh-so-American chips are loaded with bellisimo Italian meatballs! And topped with besciamella cream and parmesan – you’ll find them from the good folk at the La Cucina Mobile food truck.
Just follow your nose to this show newcomer – authentic Brazillian BBQ chicken cooked over charcoal on site. This food truck crew is making their way from the Gold Coast for their Ipswich Show debut.
The sweetest thing…
Taste free samples of many types of honey at the Ipswich and West Moreton Beekeepers Association stand in the agricultural pavilion. The creamed cinnamon and ginger versions are a couple to look out for if you’re after something different. While you’re there, take in some live beekeeping and honey extraction demonstrations, and there’s plenty of honey to buy too!
‘Wedding cake’ shaved ice
Hawaiian Shaved Ice – head for the vintage Kombi proffering powdery shaved ice and pick your topping – there’s everything from guava or lychee to cappuccino and ‘wedding cake’. The Shaka Shack food van is trekking south from the Sunshine Coast to be at the show.
German sausages with a twist
German sausages are the specialty of The Wiener Wagon so head here if it’s a cheesy kransky or hearty bratwurst you need to propsel you through your big day out at the show!
The loaded sweet potato
For pork lovers, get thee to This Little Piggie for burger-y goodness and out-of-the-box creations such as the loaded sweet potato.
