Raph Rashid of Beatbox Kitchen

We launched our debut video series ‘Melbourne Mornings’ last month to such a wonderful response – thank you ALL for getting behind all our new projects, we really REALLY appreciate it!

Today we’re following up with the second video in this 6-part series, featuring legendary local foodie Raph Rashid.  The founding father of Melbourne’s food truck scene, Raph is proprietor of Beatbox Kitchen, All Day Donuts and Taco Truck (you gotta hand it to a guy with 3 bustling businesses and no proper website to speak of!)

Huge thanks to our filmmaker Paris Thomson of SIRAP, and to local band Milwaukee Banks for lending us the instrumental version of their tune ‘Van Gogh’ to accompany this film – you can check out this ace track with the original vocals on Soundcloud.

This episode of Melbourne Mornings follows Raph on his typical morning routine, from breakfast at home with his family through to his busy morning with his crew at work.  All in all, Raph’s mornings are surprisingly chilled out!  You would think any household with two primary school kids would be MENTAL at 8.00am, but no… in the Rashid household, it’s eerily calm.

‘Each morning is slightly different, but for the most part we like to take it chill and give each other room to relax and consider what the day will bring’ he says. ‘Our routine is always changing with the kids growing up, but I still love to make them lunch’.

We hope you love this little snapshot into Raph’s world.

Raph’s book, Hungry For That, published by Hardie Grant, is available online and in all good bookshops.
