About Ostrich & the Egg

Home Town: Melbourne

We are here to introduce flavours a likened to street food style ingredients with aromas only replicated in South African kitchen households. Ostrich & the Egg is Australia’s first food truck for the iconic South African donut called koeksisters. Using a unique blend of locally sourced ingredients and spices the koeksister is hand forged, the dough is spiced prior to rolling, pan fried, placed in a house made syrup then dusted in coconut. With over 200 years of various cultural influences, it bursts with unique and humble flavours.
