Important industry announcement: the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) will be giving out free samples of delicious Macanese food over the next week two weeks in Sydney and Melbourne!
First appearing at the SMOOTH Festival of Chocolate in Sydney, MGTO will be continuing to celebrate its 2018 Year of Gastronomy campaign with a colourfully decorated a food truck catering to hungry festival-goers with free plates of specially prepared Macanese delicacies.
So chocolate AND free Macanese goodies? We know what we’re doing this weekend.
The pop-up Taste of Macao truck will be parked in the hub of the annual festival, to be held for the first time at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.
A crowd of more than 40,000 is expected to converge on the popular indoor/outdoor venue over the September 1-2 weekend, a major drawcard being a prize of a holiday for two to Macao, supported by radio SMOOTH FM on-air and digital promotions.
Once the show is over, the food truck will take to the streets of Sydney for a week of dishing out more free samples of African Chicken, Pork Chop Buns and the ever-popular Macanese egg tarts.
For three hours each day from September 3 to September 8, the truck will be parked at such CBD locations as Circular Quay, Martin Place and Central Station as well as suburban Parramatta and Chatswood.
The truck will then venture south along the motorway to Melbourne for appearances in Carlton, Federation Square, St Kilda and South Bank (September 14-18).
