For one night only, ALDI is opening a pop-up “Dumpling Truck” serving up ALDI’s delicious Urban Eats® dumplings, so Aussies can say goodbye to dipping into their savings to treat themselves with takeaway dinners.

On Friday 12th August, from 5pm, the ALDI Bankstown Central car park will become the hottest takeaway shop in Sydney. For the jaw-dropping low price of $1.44 (less than what some consumers pay for delivery on take-away!) shoppers will be able to swing by the ALDI Dumpling Truck to purchase a serve of six delicious Urban Eats® dumplings, including fan-favourites Prawn Gyoza and a delicious new seasonal addition to the range, Chicken Dumplings.

The ALDI Dumpling Truck will show Aussies that a takeaway, or “fakeaway” dinner can be the ultimate trifecta – fast, affordable and talk-about-it-all-week sort of delicious. New research* commissioned by ALDI shows that almost half (46%) of Aussies are paying between $15 and $20 on a takeaway food order per person, at least $13.56 more than the cost of a serving from ALDI’s dumpling range.

ALDI’s quality range means Aussies can treat themselves to a Friday restaurant-quality meal that won’t break the bank. The ALDI Dumpling Truck will offer Sydneysiders a takeaway serve for less than $1.50, including prawn for just 25c per gyoza and chicken for 23c per dumpling, which is the equivalent price of the individual dumplings or gyoza if bought direct from the ALDI freezers.

Andrew King, Frozen Food Buying Director says: “At a time when consumers are feeling the pinch, it’s rewarding to provide an option for people to still enjoy their Friday night rituals when they shop with us.

The ALDI Dumpling Truck demonstrates how good food doesn’t have to hurt your pocket. You can dish up quick, delicious and affordable Friday dinners at home for less than $1.50 a serve!

We are so proud of our curated convenience range of frozen food items that have been developed by our trusted supplier partners and are a firm favourite with our customers for good reason,”

The ALDI Dumpling Truck proves that Australian consumers don’t have to miss out on the good things in life in order to stick to a budget, like coming home, getting into your sweats, putting on a movie and chowing down on some delicious takeaway style cuisine.

ALDI shoppers can recreate the Dumpling Truck as well as a range of other convenient ‘fakeaway’ meals week-in-week-out using products from the Urban Eats® frozen food range which can be found at their local ALDI. The range doesn’t stop at just dumplings: customers can also find a host of other international specialty foods such as Punjabi Samosa’s and Greek Spanakopita.

The ALDI Dumpling Truck will be pitched up at ALDI Bankstown Central, Chapel Rd, on Friday 12th August from 5pm-7pm, while stocks last. Maximum of 4 serves per person. Cards only, no cash accepted.
