Food trucks have transformed the dining scene, bringing a sense of adventure and culinary innovation to the streets. Among the multitude of mobile eateries, we stumbled upon a hidden gem called SeaGirl at our local market.

With their tantalising promise of fresh seafood dishes infused with unique twists, we couldn’t resist diving into this gastronomic experience.

The setup of the SeaGirl food truck was inviting, nestled strategically near the main thoroughfare. Intrigued by the mouthwatering menu, we eagerly placed our order for a fish taco and a garlic prawn roll, eagerly anticipating the explosion of flavors that awaited us.

After a short wait of about 15 minutes, our orders were ready. We wasted no time in digging in, starting with the fish taco. The first bite was a delightful combination of textures, with the crunchy batter providing a satisfying contrast to the softness of the taco shell.

The tangy sauce added a zing that elevated the taste, leaving us with a lasting impression of sheer deliciousness. The garlic prawn roll was equally enticing, with plump prawns perfectly cooked and complemented by a flavorful coleslaw and dressing. Each bite transported us to seafood heaven, as we relished the harmonious blend of ingredients.

However, our culinary delight was overshadowed by a slight disappointment in the portion sizes. The Fish Taco boasted only a single small piece of battered fish, while the Garlic Prawn Roll contained a meager 4-5 prawns at most.

Regrettably, the portion sizes did not quite align with the price point. At just over $30 for our order, we couldn’t help but feel a pang of dissatisfaction. Though the taste was exceptional, it left us questioning the value for money.

With the prices leaning towards the higher end, it becomes difficult to wholeheartedly recommend SeaGirl. The delectable flavors and quality of the seafood cannot be disputed, but when the portions leave you wanting more, it hampers the overall dining experience.

Perhaps adjusting the prices to better reflect the portion sizes would make SeaGirl a more enticing option for customers seeking a satisfying meal without breaking the bank.

It is important to note that if budget is not a primary concern, the quality and taste of the food at SeaGirl undeniably make for a memorable culinary journey.

For those with a penchant for fine seafood and a willingness to splurge, SeaGirl offers an opportunity to indulge in flavors that will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression.
