New Normal: Here are the 6 Food Truck Pop Ups Coming to Forest Lake

Social distancing, contactless payment and take aways only — these are part of the new normal amidst the pandemic crisis. These safety practices will also be observed as the Food Truck Pop Ups return to Forest Lake on Friday, 14 Aug 2020.

Held at the parking lot opposite the Forest Lake State School in Woogaroo Street, the food trucks will be ready to serve diners from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Visitors may choose from six tasty selections:

Micasa Burger Truck 

Serving American-style burger since 2014, the Micasa Burger Truck team has been in the food truck business since the late 1990s. Their menu choices are inspired by the movie Pulp Fiction. The concept is fun and the food is filling!
