There’s nothing sweeter than the Sweet Tooth Food Truck Festival coming back in town. No need to sugar coat it: all of Melbourne’s best desserts are coming together for a gloriously sweet weekend.

Its hard to keep your head above water when there’s an ocean of food trucks, but we’ve found one that definitely makes a splash.

There’s plenty of fish in the sea, but only one seafood festival a year – so dive right in!
