Since the moment I saw Chef, starring Jon Favreau and Sofia Vergara, i‘ve been dreaming of having my own food truck. Oh! Just dreaming there.
I am no professional in cooking or management to be able to handle such responsibility but luckily for me there are a bunch of wonderful souls willing to take up the noble task. I was in Bangalore last year and the most beautiful memories I have are the bike rides my sister and I would take to these Food Trucks at different locations in the city.
Food trucks have been quite a trend in metros lately and Bangalore has the biggest collection of these ‘Meals on Wheels’. Here a few of my favourites, I’d gladly recommend to anyone in the city:
1. S.W.A.T. Food Truck
Military themed truck serving the best Mexican and American fast-food using their SWAT force of awesome cooks and chefs. S.W.A.T. which stands for ‘Serving With A Twist’ is certainly one of its kind in the city of Bangalore.
Must Try: Fish & Chips, All American Meat Burger and Deep Fried Oreos. There Mojito is a relief in these summer days.
Location: HSR, Domlur

2. Square Ruth
Trippy and drippy fast food. Square Ruth is one of the oldest food trucks in the city and has quite a story behind that name. Let me tell you something that will make you want to rush to this place right away; their sauces are all home-made. Ah! Its a piece of heaven on earth each time you bite into the food they serve you.
Must Try: Mince Meat Sub and Chicken Wings drenched in sauces like Barbecue, honey chilli, Thai and Spicy Garlic.
Location: Varies but mostly on HSR 27th main or HAL 2nd stage
3. The Great Indian Bhukkad
The Great Indian Bhukkad is a vegetarian’s paradise specialising in North Indian and Indian Chinese combos. They’ve taken the rolls culture to whole new level as they’ve introduced to us, their signature roll; Corn Mayo special and each bite of it leaves me speechless. Their recipes are filled with Szechwan and Manchurians along with rajma and chole.
Must Try: Corn Mayo Roll, Momos & Veggie Rice Meal
Location: ES University, Behind Meenakshi Mall, Bannerghatta Road

4. Wicked Chef
They call their truck the Big Red Machine and bring out dishes that would make you feel like you are a part of Hollywood movies where you run around in trench coats and get this go to meal. In short, the food is tasty, authentic, no fuss and such a comfort.
Must try: Pesto Marinated Grill Chicken, Egg Burger and Chicken Wrap
Location: Kammanahalli, Indira Nagar, Manyata Tech Park

5. Gypsy Kitchen
Just as fiery as the truck looks, the food is fiery with flavors from around the world oozing out of it. I can assure you, if you’re passing by and the aroma hits your nose you won’t be able to stop yourself from filling your heart and tummy with deliciousness.
Must Try: BBQ wings, Garlic momos and Gypsy meat burger
Location: HSR Layout
