5. Portland, ME
The city of Portland is home to more than 60,000 people as well as the heart of the Greater Portland Metropolitan Area, which contains about a third of the state of Maine’s entire population. It is situated at the mouth of the Fore River, which in turn, means that the entire region has a reputation for seafood.
This is reflected in the existence of food trucks such as Bite Into Maine, which serves the best lobster rolls that can be found in the city and Fishing’ Ships, which serves local seafood that has been battered in local beer.
Meanwhile, other food trucks such as CN Shawarma, El Corazon, and Little Jamaica are serving up everything from Middle Eastern to Mexican and Jamaican cuisine, which should make for a refreshing change-up for people like to experiment.
Those who are interested in entertainment related to Portland’s 18 food trucks to go along with their food should set aside some time on August 20 to check out the 3rd annual Battle of the Food Trucks, which will be held between the hours of 4 and 7PM.
4. Kalamazoo, MI
In Kalamazoo County, there is the city of Kalamazoo, which is home to more than 70,000 people served by 7 food trucks. One of the best examples of its food trucks is Gorilla Gourmet, which specializes in new American cuisine that has been influenced by foreign cooking practices while still retaining its own character.
Camzies Pizza serves up wood-fired pizza, while Scott’s Pig Roast specializes in Memphis-style food with roasted meat being a particular stand-out among its menu options.
For those who are interested in seeing more options, there is even the Kalamazoo Food Truck Rally, which features a nice variety of Michigan-based food trucks combined with other activities for an even better time.
3. New Iberia, LA
Despite the name of the city, there is no food truck in New Iberia that specializes in Spanish cuisine. However, there is more than one food truck that specializes in cuisine with Spanish influence, with examples ranging from the Mexican-themed Acme Taco Food Truck to the Cajun and Creole-themed Big Juicy’s BBQ LLC and Sweetwater Blue’z.
Together with seven other food trucks, these eating establishments make sure that the more than 30,000 residents of the city have a superb selection of convenient street food, particularly when its Food Truck Festival is held on the second Saturday of the month at the Teche Area Farmers Market.
