Travellers who head to new destinations for their summer getaways often choose to make reservations at the trendiest restaurants and try tasty dishes prepared by famous local chefs. However, many Aussie travellers are choosing to sample cuisine in other ways, especially while they are out sightseeing and enjoying the temperate weather at some destinations. Although food trucks are not a new concept, many of these places offering a quick bite have been trying new ways to entice patrons with daring menu items and special promotions. These eateries can be ideal for those on the go who also want to enjoy local foods on their holiday.
One of the countries that has best embraced the food truck phenomenon over the years in the United States where the vehicles can be found from coast to coast. While many serve classic items such as grilled cheese sandwiches and pizza, some of these moving restaurants will specialise in Asian pho soup, Korean barbecue or dessert crepes. The trucks will move where the crowds are, so travellers can have fun finding them online and tracking their locations during the day. Aussies who have a craving for Sloppy Joes while in Miami can look for the Rolling Stone truck, while others taking New York holidays can keep an eye out for the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck serving crazy flavors like wasabi peas and sea salt.
Although the U.S. is a top pick for food truck finds, plenty of other locals offer outdoor cuisine on the go that is a step above fast food and a convenient choice for a meal. Travellers who take flights to Paris may be surprised if they see a food truck along the city streets. So far there are only two in the area, but since they have reached heightened success, many more are sure to follow. Between a breakfast pastry and a dinner of classic French cuisine, travellers can try a juicy burger or even some Tex-Mex on the streets form the various trucks.
Aussies on short breaks can keep an eye out in cities Down Under as well, for many of these food trucks are popping up in places such as Sydney, Melbourne and along the Gold Coast. While sit-down restaurants are always a good choice when travelling, having a meal or two from a food truck can also be a fun adventure travel experience.
