The phenomena of Food Trucks is relatively new. Very new to me.
A GREAT idea of a way to get into the food service business without the astronomical costs involved in a brick and mortar location. Plus, if business is better someplace else you just drive there. Brilliant!
I couldn't wait to see food trucks in Houston. We have one in San Miguel but it is used now for private events and parties. Darn, I've never gotten to eat at one, yet.
The mixture of cuisines is fascinating. This one mixes Mexican and Korean cuisine! Who would ever have thought of that? Since I know the chef of this truck, it was possible to know where it was parked and go photograph it.
Unfortunately I had just finished lunch with my friend at the Cajun Stop and couldn't eat another bite of food.
The truck was parked near the new Dynamo Stadium in downtown Houston. The Dynamos are the soccer team. Something else new to me.
Steady lines of people to get food.
These trucks are really, really into providing tasty meals as well as being connected to social media to let customers know where they are that day as well as other info like the menu.
There is going to be a BIG FOOD TRUCK event in Houston October 11-13th. Close to forty trucks.
It will definitely be a "happening". I wish I could be there.......
I love the names of the trucks. The one in these photos is Chi'lantro BBQ. Here are some of the others.
Fork in the Road
Bernie's Burger Bus
It's a Wrap
Pocket to Me
Soul Cat Cuisine
You get the idea. Creative cuisine as well as creative names and creative graphics on the trucks.
Have any of you eaten at food trucks? Where? What cuisine? I'd love to know.
I'm going to be in LA in a few weeks. Hope to see more food trucks on that trip!
