It’s no secret that Seattle’s quickly grown to be one of the best food truck scenes in the country. So, we’ve compiled a list of a few of our favorites, ranging from delicious Mexican sandwiches to new takes on classic Vietnamese cuisine. Now comes to hard part– picking the next one you want to check out. Here are our picks for Seattle’s best food trucks, in alphabetical order.
Known for ‘great food without the pretense’, Bread and Circuses is a prime choice for those looking for high class fare at a low cost. While their burgers and the brussel sprout Caesar are fan favorites, you can’t go wrong with an order of gnocchi tots either.
With 3 different trucks roaming around the city, El Camion has solidified their place at the top of the tortas game. These Mexican sandwiches are absolutely incredible, with traditional meats complemented by lettuce, mayo, avocado, tomato, jalapeño and pico de gallo. Of course, don’t hesitate to try something new every once in a while either.
You kn0w you’re dealing with quality when everything on the menu is made from scratch. This middle Eastern truck serves up delicious gyros, shawarmas, and salads, plus their iconic falafel. Looking to recreate this at home? Swing by their deli.
With a reputation as one of the best food trucks in the country (plus a nod as a must-do from the New York Times), these guys can’t be missed. The unique Hawaiian-Korean fusion menu boasts delicious tacos and sliders, but the kimchi fried rice is some of the best in the city too.
Having just reentered the Seattle scene with a food truck (they started as a restaurant but that closed), Phorale is our pick for Vietnamese in the city. Think fantastic, inventive banh mis, great pho, and some knockout pork belly.
With the coolest truck on this list (we have a soft spot in our hearts for Airstreams), Skillet is perfect for those looking for a hearty burger. Add a side of poutine to your order, and your lunch is filling (and delicious) enough to last you until breakfast the next morning.
Head here for some unforgettable Thai cuisine. Start things off easy with an order of pad thai and some spring rolls. Then, challenge yourself and your friends to the Volcano Chicken dish. Just don’t go overboard on your spice level, ok?
New Orleans soul food in Seattle? What sounds like a dream has been made a reality by these folks. We’re talking po boys, gumbo, beignets… the list goes on. The hardest part about eating here is deciding what to order. Frankly, it’s a problem we like to have.
Wood Shop makes some incredible BBQ, and it’s rare that one can grab that quality straight from a truck. We’re eternally grateful that we can satisfy our cravings for brisket or ribs when we see them out and about. Don’t forget to grab a side of mac and cheese, either.
And there you have it, Seattle! Our favorite spots to grab for Seattle’s best food trucks. Never again will you have to worry about where to go during your next extended lunch break.
