In a sky blue 1955 Chevy Bel Air, Tristan spent the summer of 2015 driving the entirety of Route 66, from Chicago to Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles.

Over six weeks he stopped at countless diners, spending time in whichever kitchens would let him sneak around, learning recipes and tricks passed down through generations.

In uncovering the secrets to dishes like fried chicken and waffles, breakfast grits, chicken fried steak and many more, he learned that diner culture is about more than just a burger, a milkshake and a jukebox. Stopping into a diner, whether you're a regular or just passing through, is like coming home. 

Over its 4,000km Route 66 passes through Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.

And now, with a selection of diner-inspired dishes, it's made its way to Sydney.
