Anytime is food time and every food is delectable when it is prepared with the freshest ingredients, skill and authentic spices. And who says you need to visit a star-studded restaurant to get the authentic taste of a variety of cuisines? Here are five cities in the USA with several food trucks doing the rounds that can serve you the best and choicest food in a matter of minutes.
You won’t get a chance to feel hunger when you are in Austin. More than 1000 food trucks always go around the city with tasty treats loaded into them. Be it a simple chocolate doughnut, a creative culinary delight or even some special dish of the town, you are never far from it as long as you are in Austin. One of the food trucks, ‘Hey! You Gonna Eat or What?’, is the winner of Truckwest Taste-off 2013 and it is famous for serving huge sandwiches. Don’t forget to bite into their special Shiner Bock Monte Cristo sandwich stacked with cheddar cheese and smoked turkey.
And if you are looking for some mouth-watering brisket, search for Micklethewait Craft Meats. Their Frito Pie is the must-order item here. Another truck, Veracruz All Natural, will serve you great tacos. Ask for their homemade tortillas with fillings of potato, cheese, eggs, beans and bacon.
Los Angeles, CA
If you happen to be in Los Angeles and are looking for some quick on-the-go bites, look for a nearby food truck. The city of Angels was one of the first to introduce the concept of mobile food vans, way back in the 70s. Now the city is roamed by hundreds of food trucks serving delicious culinary fare 24/7. Among hundreds of choices, make it sure to track down the legendary Kogi BBQ truck to get a real taste of Los Angeles. These ever-famous Kogi trucks are considered the landmarks of LA and have been serving up delightful Korean-Mexican cuisines.
You can also go for the Grilled Cheese Truck, Downtown Dogs or Marisco Jalisco for high-quality cuisine on a budget. Every bite will carry you to the warmth and rhythm of Los Angeles life.
Think about organic tacos and the first city popping up on your mind would be Portland. The moment you step out on the streets you would find clusters of food trucks serving up hot and delectable gastronomic delicacies from around the globe. If you fancy Thai food, go for the eternal Thai favorite Nong’s Khao Man Gai. They sell only Khao Man Gai, a Thai-styled Hainan chicken poached and served with fragrant rice cooked in chicken stock.
‘Gonzo Falafel and Hummus’ is another much sought-after food truck serving up fresh Middle Eastern fare with mind-blowing kebabs, shawarma and falafel. ‘Tabor,’ the Czech food truck serves the foodies with their famous “Schnitzelwich,” a zesty pan-fried pork loin. Looking for some veg items? ‘DC Vegetarian’ would be your best companion. Their Steak and Cheese sandwiches made with fake meat will fill you up in no time.
San Francisco, CA
More than 150 food trucks do the rounds here on the streets of San Francisco offering quality and variety foods. El Tonayense presents you a wide range of spicy tacos. The Chairman offers you delectable Asian cuisine ranging from Taiwan-styled buns or some luscious Asian fusion.
For warm lobster rolls and clam chowder or crab cakes, look no further than Sam’s Chowdermobile.
And if the foodie in you is craving for some rotisserie grilling, go for Roli Roti for the best grilled meat and some organic and garden-fresh veggies.
Seattle has always taken a back seat in comparison with Portland, but over the years it has held on to its ground as well. In fact, Seattle is one of the best cities in the USA for its food trucks and the home to some of the most delectable foods. For homemade New Orleans-like taste, go for the Where Ya At Matt food truck. It is one of the best food trucks in Seattle and has been satisfying the food-lovers since 2010 with its Cajun and Creole dishes.
Another classic food truck is Marination Mobile serving highly scrumptious Hawaiian-Korean fusion foods that include spam sliders, kimchi fried rice and kalbi beef tacos. If you are in Seattle during the summers, make sure to visit Seattle’s Largest Independent Food and Craft Festival and check out the food trucks loaded with more of the choicest dishes than you’d ever find under a single roof.
