From cupcakes to chicken and waffles, crepes to pocket pies, just about anything your taste buds desire is being served out of food trucks, culinary carts or other restaurants on wheels. You'll find them on random street corners at lunch, camped out on the edge of local farmers markets each week and parked strategically between the nightclub and your car at 2 a.m. Face it, resistance is futile.
Here are a few of our favorites.
OhMyGogi!: Oh My Gogi! serves Korean BBQ/Mexican Fusion food in the Houston area lunch, dinner and late night. The menu’s backbone focuses on delicious Korean BBQ meat and tofu marinades combined with some of your favorite Mexican street foods. All of the marinades and salsas are homemade with ingredients that are always fresh!
The Waffle Bus: Don't expect a plain waffle from this food truck. With savory smoked salmon waffles and sweet Nutella and banana waffles, The Waffle Bus turns a classic breakfast food into a delicious gourmet dish to be enjoyed at any time of day. @TheWaffleBus
Frosted Betty: Forget the ice cream man, he's got nothing on Nicole Mora's treat-filled dessert truck. Want to know where to look for those delicious cupcakes, cookies, and brownies? Track Mora's Twitter (@luvfrostedbetty) for regular updates on where she's currently camped out, selling sweet snacks to faithful followers.
It's a Wrap: The Thai steak wrap at It's a Wrap is a definite winner. So are the deep-fried macaroni and cheese balls. This particular truck is a frequent visitor to the City Hall Farmer's Market and other regular stops on the food truck circuit. Many of the options have an ethnic flare (chicken tikka masala) and are fairly healthy-except for those mac ‘n cheese balls of course. @ItsAWrapTruck
Tacos Tierra Caliente: Where do you find the best tacos in Houston? In a convenience store parking lot, of course. Tacos Tierra Caliente is a well-known destination in the Montrose neighborhood, slinging tacos from early morning into the wee hours of the night. PRO TIP: Their salsas are the perfect addition to your taco, just beware of the spicy red. @TacosTierraCaliente
Happy Endings: This food truck's name is misleading, with juicy hot dogs and fluffy buns, you will be happy from the second you start eating. Happy Endings takes the American hot dog and tops it with international flavors from kimchi to queso. With new addition, Taco Baos, Happy Endings is infusing more Asian flavors into this already worldly truck. @happyendingsHTX
POCKet To Me: It takes just the right kind of seasoning to turn an everyday meal into mouthwatering happiness. And that's exactly what customers get when ordering anything at POCKet to Me. The "American grill" food truck offers meals ideal for those lunch and late dinner crowds and everything in between. Some of the goodies on its' short but fully-loaded menu include gourmet sandwiches, fish tacos and wicked fries with sauce, spicy sausage to list a few. @POCKetToMe
