Seattle has embraced the food truck in a big way, with dozens of rolling restaurants parked in some of our busiest neighborhoods. Here are five of the newest.
Only open for a few weeks, this trailer (permanently parked in a gas station lot) has already earned praise for the best banh mi in Seattle. At just $3.50, the price is definitely right.
3 West Nickerson, Queen Anne (no phone)
Family-owned seafood purveyors, who got their start in Des Moines of all places, camp out in South Lake Union on Mondays and Tuesdays. Their fish tacos are huge and insanely flavorful.
Alleyway at Harrison & Boren, South Lake Union (253-448-6200)
WiseGuy Italian Street Food
Heaping Italian sandwiches are the order of the day at this spot in front of the Seattle Art Museum. Go for the Italian sausage simmered in a tomato and Pinot Grigio sauce on a chewy roll.
2nd & Pike, Downtown (425-444-5899)
My Sweet lil Cakes
This retro diner-style truck dishes up made-to-order flapjacks on a stick, both sweet and savory. The beer & hickory smoked bacon pancake is a thing of demented genius.
1208 Pine Street, Capitol Hill (206-265-3002)
My Chef Lynn
Food truck sandwiches are a dime a dozen, but this new South Lake Union truck has a roast beef that crushes competitors — tender chuck in a creamy mushroom and onion jus with havarti and pickled onions.
