Fun Foods You Should Try from a Food Truck
There’s just something special about food trucks and the food that they serve. If you’re new to the world of food trucks, your foodie heart is going to explode with happiness from the recipes they bring to life. There are a lot of options and different food styles to start with, so here are some basic, but fun foods you should start with.
Sandwiches are a staple for many people, especially if you have to make food to take with you for the day, but a food truck sandwich isn’t your normal run-of-the-mill sandwich. These sandwiches are made to order, with fresh ingredients, and are often served hot, straight off the grill. You can order your favorite Rueben, or try a new version of a grilled cheese sandwich. Most sandwich food trucks also use artisanal bread, which means you really are getting the best version. And you can take it to go, either for a walk or back to the office, without worrying about losing any of it, since they’re often nicely wrapped for you.
If you have never had Greek food before, a gyro is the perfect place to start. Traditional gyros have meat, tomato, and onion, wrapped in a pita and drizzled with tzatziki sauce. The meat is traditionally lamb, beef, chicken, or pork. Start with the traditional gyro your first time to experience it how it’s meant to be, but most food trucks offer a variety of customizations and twists on a gyro as well that you will love just as much. These Greek food trucks are often run by Greek families, which means you’re getting an authentic introduction to a fabulous cuisine that you might just fall in love with.
Everyone loves pizza, and if they say they don’t, it probably means they just haven’t found a good one yet. Food truck pizza is a step above normal pizza. Your pizza is made fresh, right in front of you, just like most other food trucks. The biggest difference is how they cook it. Most pizza food trucks will use a pizza oven and some even use a wood-fired pizza oven. There’s just something that hits differently about pizza from a pizza oven, and the wood gives it that perfect slightly smokey taste. Along with sandwich trucks, pizza food trucks are one of the most popular options out there, so you can experiment to find your favorite.
Let these foods become a great introduction to the world of food trucks. There are always more foods to try, so get out there and be adventurous. Just make sure you keep track of your favorites so you always know where to go for a good meal. *Pro tip: mark a food truck as a favorite in the WTF app to easily find them next time!
