Food trucks are fun, convenient, serve delicious food at a fraction of the cost of a sit-down meal, and are a great addition to any event. Is it any wonder, then, the concept has caught on big time, with an ever-expanding fleet of these kitchens-on-wheels in operation on any given day? Here are some mobile catering stars across the country.
Rasta Rita Margarita Truck, Southern California
Established in 2006, Rasta Rita is a vintage GMC margarita truck serving up fresh, organic margaritas and specialty cocktails in Southern California. Rasta Rita offers basic and premium packages that include handcrafted margaritas made by a professional mixologist. And, to keep hunger at bay, their amigos at Rasta Taco Catering might be just the ticket.
Koi Fusion, Portland, Oregon
Koi Fusion offers Korean food with a twist. Think Seoul sliders and kimchi quesadillas. The company currently serves the greater Portland area and has plans to expand across Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. Koi Fusion offers the option of a hosted truck event, where the host covers the cost; or, alternatively, an option where the guests pay for their own food.
Phil’s Steaks, New York City
Since 2012, Phil’s Steaks has been serving up authentic Philly cheesesteaks and Phil’s fries to the New York masses. They pile up premium beef on Amoroso rolls, straight from Philly. Their menu also includes vegetarian options.
Voodoo Van, Portland, Oregon
Also in Portland, the Voodoo Van is a doughnut shop to go. The Voodoo Van serves the Portland metro area, and farther afield for an additional fee. The company caters occasions ranging from corporate events to block parties, and everything in between. With its creative and colorful offerings, the Voodoo Van is sure to add a novel, not to mention super-tasty, element to your event.
Babycakes, Chicago, Illinois
Rolling up in their bright red truck, fondly named Sweetheart, Babycakes serves up breakfast in the Chicago area, 24/7. The Babycakes pancake party features three pancake flavor options, plus two sides. Choose from classic buttermilk, cinnamon roll, and for the more savory-minded, the “grilled cheese experience.”
Simply Divine, Orlando, Florida
Voted Best Food Truck in Orlando 2015, Chef Edgar and the team at Simply Divine will create a bespoke menu for your event, based on your requirements, using fresh and flavorful ingredients.
