Five Food Trucks We Wish Would Stop in Phoenix
But a girl can dream, right? And today we're obsessed with the meals on wheels we've been reading about in Heather Shouse's new book, Food Trucks: Dispatches and Recipes from the Best Kitchens on Wheels. Shouse traveled the country (though she didn't include Phoenix in her book, shameful!) looking for the joys of food truck cooking. Here are five trucks we've love to see swing by our metropolis.
Get the list after the jump.
2. Lulu B's Vietnamese banh mi from the back of a truck? Austin's Laura Bayer traveled to South Vietnam to perfect her lemongrass pork sandwiches and avocado milkshakes sweetened with condensed milk. Color us happy to not have to drive all the way to Lee's Sandwiches.
3. All Fired Up
Soul food from Chicago -- all the fried goodness (catfish, chicken) and ribs smoked on the spot.
5. Curry Up Now
Indian meets Mexico in this San Francisco food truck, where home-trained cooks wrap chicken tikka masala in flour tortillas and call it success. They also serve up chaat (Indian street snacks) taste-tested and approved by the family patriarch.
