    I wish! I’ve never even actually seen one. Apparently I need to go into the city more.

    It’s very common in NYC.  I’ve had falafel, korean, mexican, indian, coffee, pizza, ice cream and donuts.

    We have a lot of ridiculous regulations in my city that make operating a food truck prohibitively expensive, but a lot of start ups are getting the financial backing to operste them. My favourite is Caplansky’s (Toronto: http://www.caplankys.com) for yummy smoked meat sandwiches.

    We like asian fusion (banh mi’s!!!) and FI is a huge fan of Torchys Tacos here in Austin. We also have a dessert food trailer we love called Gordough’s. They are giant doughnuts topped with assorted amazingness! 

     

    Now I want a doughnut….

    The Grease Trucks at Rutgers. They were featured on MVF. Several local restaurants offer the “fat” sandwiches on their menus.

    We don’t have food trucks where I live. 🙁 We have the guy who sells sausages from a cart in the downtown core, and the ice cream man that frequents some neighbourhoods.

    @MissCalifornia:  I LOVE food truck food hereLaughing – probably a little too much.  It’s actually very entertaining to see what people come up with – I am constantly amazed by what types of food can be sold out of trucks.

    @MissCalifornia:  gorilla grilled cheese or coolhaus ice cream. I live in NYC, so there are a million food trucks, but those are my favorites.

    We have scads of them in Madison, WI, and they are *fantastic*. Some of my faves include Indonesian and the Venezuelan empanada guy.
