Food Trucks Cater Kosher

Food trucks have garnered fame nationwide by serving up gourmet meals, sensational snacks, solid staples and delicious gastronomical experiments. And now Jewish cuisine is becoming a popular food truck product.

From Atlanta to Austin to Los Angeles, Jewish and kosher food trucks are appearing on the streets and in food truck courts. They serve up egg rolls full of corned beef, mouth-watering fried falafel and delicious pastrami. Some offer sandwiches inspired by a Jewish deli.

While gourmet food trucks may be a fairly new business, selling Jewish foods on the streets goes back to the early 1900s. Vendors with push carts operated on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, selling pastries, herring and pickles that served as lunch on the go for busy Jewish workers.

Today, residents of large metropolitan cities can dine at kosher food trucks or from trucks serving a combined Jewish-American menu. Some menus include whitefish, corned beef and fresh challah rolls. Others dish up more unique items such as the mamalawach or fired Yemini bread and the Jewish pastry jachnun.

And there is the combo food truck, such as the El Nosh Latin Delicatessen food truck, which serves Latin-Jewish fusion food to LA foodies. The menu combines ingredients from both cultures, such as the yucca latkes with a mango crema or the lishka mofongo nuggets with corned beef and green mole.

Observers say there are plenty of options for Jewish-plus-another-culture food trucks. Cities like New York, Miami and LA have large Jewish populations, plus other distinct cultures, that make an ideal market for a combination truck.

Another gourmet food truck serving Los Angeles and combining the foods of several cultures is The Hungry Nomad. A popular food truck among locals, The Hungry Nomad offers a wide menu that combines American, Mediterranean and European cuisines to create savory dishes. This food truck is also a popular choice for catering fund-raising galas, charity events, corporate parties and weddings.
