Street Food Goes Gourmet
The food truck craze is a welcome expansion of culinary culture, offering a no-frills approach to cuisine from all corners of the world. The limited space and low overhead needed to operate a food truck, compared with a bricks-and-mortar restaurant, can result in low prices on upscale dishes. In other words, what foodies sacrifice by foregoing table service is made back in savings.
Street food is being accepted more and more into the canon of gourmet fare, as evidenced this year by the issuance of the first Michelin star to a street vendor. Seeking out top food trucks is an affordable way to sample interesting and unique dishes, and may be the only way for many people to try food from a renowned chef. These 10 food carts represent a cheaper and more casual version of their restaurant counterparts.
