The Weirdest Food Trucks In History

Are you excited for food truck season to come back? I know I am. With spring and summer rapidly approaching, here’s a look back at all of the weirdest documented food trucks. Hopefully someone will trump them this year!

The Randy Radish

More than just the unusual name, the food at this Northern Virginia truck is creative (as well as tasty), with dishes like  Avocado Chimichurri Bruschetta and Peanut Butter Krispy Treats. Maybe don’t combine those two, though!

The Garbage Truck

Not a great name, right? This truck doesn’t actually serve garbage, although it is decorated like a garbage truck. Its named for a legendary upstate New York meal (which it also serves) called the Trash Plate. The trash plate consists of either macaroni salad or home fries (or both), a meat (the Garbage truck offers cheeseburger, hot dog, or chicken) and your choice of topping. I think that sounds horrific, but possibly in a good way?

The Angry Friar

RIP to this double-decker food truck. It was a British double-decker bus, but it served food. That’s taking a themed restaurant to the next level.

The Hello Kitty Cafe

Do you remember watching Hello Kitty as a kid? Now, you can relive your childhood with this food truck that travels to different cities. And it’s even owned by Sanrio, Hello Kitty’s parent company, so it’s totally sanctioned. They don’t just offer cookies and macarons, they also offer adorable merchandise to commemorate your experience.

The Grillenium Falcon

Like many people, I love Star Wars, so a Star Wars themed food truck is right up my alley. If you happen to be in the Fayetteville, Arkansas area you should definitely check it out for National Grilled Cheese Day because guess what? It’s also a grilled cheese themed food truck.

The Kitchen Of The Unwanted Animal

While this might sound like performance art (and it sort of is) this Netherlands-based food truck actually does serve meat that would normally be discarded in order to promote the idea of minimizing food waste. Some of the animals it has served include pony, goose, muskrat, and pigeon. I guess it’s always good to recycle?
