Food Truck Flavors Worth The Chase

Food trucks are nothing new to the foodie scene but specialty trucks have popped up with much anticipation over the years. Folks have responded with open hands as this cultural phenomena has evolved from your good old-fashioned french fries to a whole new food culture landscape.

This is much more than your typical street food.

As the world of food has become increasingly entwined with the world of technology, social media marketing has enabled food trucks to interact directly with their customers to foster a sense of community and to create brand loyalty.

But the most important question is, what are they serving?

As people engage in the thrill of the chase as they track the location of their favorite food trucks, I bring you my top food truck flavors: 

1. Mexican

Did someone say fish tacos? Get in line for fresh soft-shelled tacos, spicy corn on the cob, and other Mexican-inspired dishes as they’re muy caliente. California is considered the land of fish tacos, but coastal areas in Mexico feast on seafood. Combine the two and that’s where food trucks blend the fresh flavors together and forge delectable dishes. But let’s not forget about those burritos filled with rice, black beans, pico de gallo, shredded cheese and a choice of meat – pork carnitas anyone?

2. East Coast

All things seafood? Count me in! This food truck flavor will surely cure your craving for the coast with an all-seafood menu. From fresh lobster rolls with hints of mayo and celery salt on a toasted New England hot dog bun, to creamy chowder with potatoes, bacon, and chunks of fresh lobster, to lobster grilled cheeses – you’ll surely be asking for more!

3. Comfort Food

Classic comfort food with a gourmet twist and seasonal flair is all the rage in the food truck biz. Get ready for some finger lickin’ goodness because to be honest, there is no bad comfort food. If it gives you comfort, it’s good. Imagine grilled cheese with smoked mac n cheese, a Southern fried chicken sandwich, a little new Orleans’ action with its famous shrimp po’ boy, delicious sloppy joes oozing out of a soft bun or creamy smoked bacon deviled eggs sprinkled with smoked paprika.

4. Asian Fusion

When the East meets West with a myriad of flavors and mobile gourmet dining experiences comes into play – you get dishes such as kimchi pulled pork poutine, fried rice balls packed with pan-Asian flavors and roti canai tacos topped with pulled brisket or, even better, peking duck. Expect to experience the true flavors of Asia with spoonfuls of sweet and spicy street eats.

5. Classics

Hot dogs, cheeseburgers or a good ol’ poutine – as much as we can’t get enough of the classics, many food trucks have taken the traditional usual chip truck flavors to new heights. Poutine goes beyond fries, curds and gravy – how about shredded beef brisket, cheese curds, brisket infused gravy, and barbecue sauce? Hot dogs or perhaps seasoned sausages layered with bacon, jack cheese, smoked onions and beef chili. Burgers topped with elk meat, cream cheese, caramelized onions, gouda and bacon. Are you drooling? Because I sure am!
