Eat 2017: Food Trucks

Food Trucks

Bistro Lunch Box

@bistrolunchbox,
bistrolunchbox.com

Catering to the mobile gourmet, the Lunch Box specializes in fresh, restaurant-quality food. And its gourmet touch extends to six varieties of fries, including Black Truffle Bacon Fondue.

Cruisin’ Cafe

@CruisinCafeLLC

This American-style mobile cafe is best with its lunch-y varieties, such as the wraps and sandwiches. The Crabby Fries are also a favorite.

Flavor Cupcakery

@flavorcupcakery, flavorcupcakery.com/flavor-cupcake-food-truck

Returning in the spring, this dessert truck supplies delicious cupcakes, which were previous winners of “Cupcake Wars.”

Fowl Play

@FowlPlayTruck,
fowlplayfoodtruck.com

Specializes in American favorites, especially its seasoned chicken paired with a secret sauce (which you can buy so you can have it all the time).

The Green Bowl

@bmoregreenbowl, thegreenbowlfoodtruck.com

This Asian/Latin-inspired truck goes green with its biodegradable materials and vegetarian options. Get the bibimbap, a veggie-rich Korean dish topped with sauteed mushrooms (or choices like beef bulgogi if meatless isn’t your thing).

Greek on the Street

@greek_on, facebook.com/pages/Greek-on-the-street

Painted with a deep sky blue and the iconic white-housed cliffs of the Santorini landscape, this truck dishes up classic Greek food.

GrrChe

@GrrChe, grrche.com

Melt-in-your-mouth grilled cheese varieties and seafood dishes are the menu here. And if you like your carbs on carbs, and carbs with that, try the sure-to-be-delicious mac and cheese grilled cheese.

Gypsy Queen Cafe

@thegypsytruck, gypsyqueencafe.com

This consistent award winner is known for its meal-sized waffle cones full of crab, crab dip, fries, you name it. Oh, and Old Bay. A year’s worth of Old Bay.

IcedGems

@icedgemsbaking,
icedgemsbaking.com

Never a dull cupcake here with flavors such as apple pie, an ever-rotating menu, and the addition of new creations. Now there are two trucks, so there’s less of an excuse to miss it.

The Jolly Pig

@thejollypig, thejollypig.com

Order one taco as a snack or really chow down on these international pulled-pork taco varieties, including a mean Korean barbecue.

Koco Food Truck

@kocofoodtruck, facebook.com/kocotruck

A Korean-American fusion truck crafting menu items such as the K-Burrito, filled with rice, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, kimchi, and bulgogi chicken.

Kommie Pig

@kommiepigbbq, kommiepig.com

Get your appetite’s worth with a half rack of ribs or a platter of pulled pork or spicy chicken—both served with two comfort-food sides. Or go cheap with one of Nathan’s hot dogs for $3.

Kooper’s Chowhound

@BRGRwagon,
kooperschowhound.com

Simply the best burger you will get from a food truck—with as few or as many fancy restaurant toppings, like avocado and truffle arugula, as you want. And they’ll remember your name there, too.

Miss Twist

@mstwisticecream, misstwisticecream.com

It’s the soft-serve ice cream and shakes you crave in those sweltering summer months. Get a twist on a cone—or a double.

SlÁinte on Wheels

@slainteonwheels,
slainteonwheels.com

Featured on “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives,” Sláinte brings its award-winning seafood gumbo and Irish bibimbap to the streets, along with other Irish fare with a Maryland twist.

The Smoking Swine

@TheSmokingSwine,
thesmokingswine.com

Come here for “traditional, no-nonsense BBQ.” And for the pleasure of saying the words “Slap Yo Mama Mac and Cheese”—a three-cheese mac topped with Goldfish crackers.

South Carolina BBQ

@ScCaterers, sccaterers.com

With family barbecue recipes from Charleston, South Carolina, you’re getting the South’s super secret and delicious sauces and seasonings right here in Baltimore.

Sultan Tandoor Food Truck

Upslide Down Dave

Is there anything better than sliders? We don’t think so. Get a lot and get ’em hot.
