Our great food truck revolution is in full swing. The growing number of food trucks in South Africa is testament to this delicious phenomenon.
Slowly but surely, we will be ordering our lunch from a moving truck…even better, we’ll be indulging in scrumptious desserts from the side-window of a colourful four-wheel vehicle! Move over mortar-and-brick eateries and hello to modern restaurants on wheels!
From gourmet cupcakes, ice cream, sandwiches and burgers to a swig of health juices and smoothies… we have listed our 6 favourites.
