Only on Tuesdays

Yes, you can trust sushi from a truck. For rolls with a twist, try unique combos such as The Coney Island, with hand-breaded shrimp and Dojo mayo, or The Godzilla with BBQ broiled eel. The truck also offers a small menu of bowls including the fresh Pokémon Bowl with Pacific Ahi Tuna and Kasai chili marinade.

What Would Cheesus Do?

Only on Tuesdays

Cheesus Christ! Puns aside, the folks at What Would Cheesus Do? are masters of everything grilled cheese and carbs. The vibrant turquoise food truck doles out cheesy seasonal creations toasted to perfection, including the Go Fig Yourself with brie, fig jam, and green apples and the Holy Guacamole. Oh, and don’t forget a little dipper of soup to complete your indulgence.

Tocabe, An American Indian Eatery

Only on Tuesdays

For a true taste of the Americas, try Native American cuisine from Tocabe. The Native-owned business sources a bevy of ingredients from Native and Indigenous producers offering authentic American Indian fare. Our favorite? Order the puffy fry bread tacos and fill em’ to the brim with Braised Shredded Bison, Osage hominy, and sweet corn.

WongWayVeg

For our veggie-forward friends, WongWayVeg is the right way to go. Serving up alternative street eats by sticking to a vegetarian/vegan menu, guests can dine on rotating menu of choices from Braised Jackfruit Quesadillas to Sweet Potato Tacos crafted with agave and lime-roasted sweet potatoes. Catering to all dieters, a huge portion of the menu can be made gluten-free.

Steuben’s

Only on Wednesdays

Pearl, Steuben’s food truck, is one of our go-to gals. Serving up comfort food classics from the Uptown-based restaurant, cozy up to famed Mac n’ Cheese or keep it simple with a classic Burger. Don’t forget to throw in a few Crab Cakes, just for good measure.

High Point Creamery

Only on Wednesdays

Sun’s out, time for something sweet. High Point Creamery’s truck—aptly named #BigPinky—houses some of the shop’s best-selling ice cream creations. Seasonal flavors include Basil with Blackberry Swirl to unique scoops like Earl Grey with Shortbread Cookies. Order it in a cup or a freshly made waffle cone and indulge slowly.

Chuey Fu’s

Only on Thursdays

Even though Chuey Fu’s has found a permanent home in the Art District on Santa Fe, the original food truck is still rolling around town. Introducing Latin-Asian fusion cuisine, Chuey Fu’s offers unique creations including the must-try Fuh Burrito made with bean sprouts, rice noodles, topped with a splash of pho broth.

La Chiva

Only on Thursdays

The Colombian food truck, La Chiva, recently opened up a brick and mortar location, parking itself on South Broadway. Although we recommend checking out the new digs, we still have a soft a spot in our hearts for the truck that started it all. Nosh on signature empanadas—stuffed with your choice of chicken, beef or shrimp–but for the main course, try the Lomito Sandwich with slow cooked pork shoulder, honey ham, and smoked Gouda.

Church of Cupcakes

Only on Thursdays

For a truly religious experience, we sing praises on high to Church of Cupcakes. Following ten commandments—including baking from scratch to using organic, local, and sustainable ingredients—you can bet Church of Cupcakes will be worthy of your taste buds. Nosh on divine creations such as Rapture Raspberry, Pillar of Salt-ed Caramel, and Let There Be Lemon. For a sinless experience, indulge in gluten-free options. Hallelujah!
