Food Trucks: A Big Change From The Chains

Food trucks are no crazy fad or fly-by-night trend. These novel restaurants-on-wheels are growing in popularity, and the reasons are obvious. Their food is superior to eats from fast-food places and often superior to chain restaurants, and they have hit a cultural nerve in the neighborhoods where they operate.

Many people live or work in areas with limited options for quality food. Items served from a food truck are usually healthier than fast-food offerings and fresher than meals from chains restaurants. Plus, food trucks provide a change of pace from the cookie-cutter eateries available to the typical consumer.

Food trucks let you see your chef in action. Since most major cities permit chefs to cook onboard their food trucks, customers can catch a glimpse of their chef. Everyone likes to know who is doing the cooking.

Best of all, food truck operators are creative. Even if several food trucks serve the same menu item, it is likely that each one with be slightly different since the chef puts his or her signature on every dish. Classic items, such as burgers and tacos, are enhanced by creative variations, and hungry diners benefit.

One example of this creativity is The Hungry Nomad food truck serving LA and Orange County foodies with Mediterranean-inspired salads, sandwiches and pockets. The Nomad Chicken Sandwich goes beyond the ordinary, combining chicken breast, grilled onions, mushrooms and provolone cheese with a proprietary roasted pepper aioli. This is not your mama’s chicken sandwich.

In addition to satiating voracious appetites on the street, The Hungry Nomad is available to cater parties, celebrations, corporate meetings, sporting events, fundraisers, festivals and movie and production shoots. The friendly, experienced catering crew will provide delicious hot food and arrange for necessary party rentals (tables, chairs, lights, etc.). They can even hire bartenders and servers.
